The Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres
Increase your rolling resistance
Punctures are a nuisance for car and bike users, but for a wheelchair user, a puncture can be a really serious problem. You might have tried puncture-resistant pneumatic tyres, but they are just that, they resist punctures, but they do not eliminate them. For that reason, many wheelchair users opt for the security of solid tyres.
While solid tyres do guarantee puncture-free mobility, this comes at a price. Solid tyres greatly increase your rolling resistance. This may not be immediately noticeable to you, but over a period of time, the increased resistance puts unnecessary stress and strain on your shoulders which can lead to pain and even a loss of propulsion power.
Puncture-proof pneumatic tyres
Now, there is an alternative. The Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres are puncture-proof pneumatic tyres. They have a SmartGuard® feature which prevents objects up to 5-mm in length from piercing and deflating the tyre. This incredibly strong blend of rubbers prevents 99-percent of punctures and so has really earned these tyres the name of puncture-proof. Additionally, the Marathon Plus tyres have hand-friendly walls, and the special Black’n Roll outer surface will never leave a skid mark. The side walls are anti-ageing so you can expect these exceptional tyres to last for a good 12-months with normal use.
These high-tech tyres obviously cost a little more than a normal pneumatic tyre, but at Invictus Active you can purchase two tyres for the price of just £44. That is the cheapest price available in the UK and includes free next-day delivery nationwide. There are three sizes to choose from, with diameters of 24, 25 or 26-inches, all are one inch wide.
