Description of Schwalbe Tryker Active Folding Tire for tricycle recumbents - 20x1.50 inch - 2017 - Black-Reflex

The first special tire of Schwalbe for recumbent tricycles. Tire construction and profile contours are co-ordinated with the special requirements of a multi-track vehicle in mind. Recumbent tricycle exert completely different loads on tires than do (normal) bicycles. Nevertheless the tires must be light and fast, because drive is still achieved through muscle power and should therefore be as effective as possible. Massive motor vehicle tires are out of the question. The Tryker takes on the challenge of minimal rolling friction and high durability for the recumbent tricyclist. With RaceGuard puncture protection, which consist of a double layer Nylon fabric.

RaceGuard: Double layer of Nylon fabric. Good protection for light, sporty tires. Schwalbe Puncture Protection Level 4.

The Schwalbe Tryker has the ECE-R75 mark and is thus certified for use on faster E-Bikes up to 50 km/h. This ECE regulation is valid all over Europe. Certificates of conformity from the tire manufacturer or indemnities are therefore no longer necessary.

Average
I used a pair on a velomobile. They roll well, but:
* In the long range, they do not sustain the maximum pressure indicated by Schwalbe: the thread of the walls broke after about 1800/2000 km. The Racer is much better built. This weakness is not acceptable on a tyre said to be developed for tricycles liable to endure significant lateral loads.
* They were not round: difficult to mount them and get a perfectly circular wheel.
* grip is average (it was not a problem for my use).
Good
I use these as front tyres on a velomobile (Flevobike E-Orca). I do like them. Not at the rear: I tried that too, but the rear wheel has another function (no steering, but traction) and the Tryker is less good at that.
At the front, on the contrary, they are quite good. Very good grip, perfect for cornering, no riding noise (no profile adds to that) and good filtering of virbrations. The disadvantages are that they are vulnerable on unpaved roads with small stones (sidewalls are very thin and small particles tend to cut through the rubber on the surface). Mileage is somewhat limited: 8000 km seems to be about what they can do.
