Schwalbe

Schwalbe is the brand. Bohle is the company which was set up by Ralph Bohle in 1922 and is now being managed by the third generation Bohle family. They produce tyres in partnership with the Korean tyre manufacturer, Hung-A, production in Indonesia.

Schwalbe headquarters are in Germany, with subsidiaries in France, Italy, Great Britain, Netherlands, USA and Canada; and distributors in over 40 countries.

Schwalbe UK Ltd was set up to supply specialist parts to the wheelchair and bicycle industries in 1985 as Double J (Midlands) Ltd by Philip Taylor and his brother; whose background had been in bicycle manufacturing.  They then moved into purpose-built premises in Telford in May 2008; doubling storage capacity; now storing up to 750,000 tyres and 2.1 million tubes.

The law does not specify any special tyres for e-bikes that are pedal assisted up to 25 km/h (15.4miles per hour) but as the loads and average speeds on electric bicycles are usually higher than those on normal bicycles Schwalbe recommend using special “E-Bike Ready” tyres.
