This Brompton Kojak tyre (it's made specially for Brompton by Schwalbe - it's a folding tyre with kevlar bead - making it lighter than the standard Schwalbe Kojak tyre - and was one of two replacements for the Schwalbe Stelvio tyre which was discontinued by Schwalbe in 2009.

The Kojak tyre is offered as a factory fit option on all new Brompton bikes - since January 2010 - saving approximately 232g over the standard Brompton tyre.

The Schwalbe Kojak tyre for your Brompton should be kept at even higher pressures than other Brompton tyres, these lightweight slicks are the fastest in the Brompton range from Schwalbe.

Their slightly smaller diameter means that gearing is lowered by 2.5% and their narrower width also makes them unsuitable for use with the older style of tyre-driven dynamo lighting.

The kevlar beading allows the tyre to be folded (perfect for keeping a spare in your desk drawer or carrying as a backup when touring). Comes with a reflective band around the sidewall to make you more visible to cars at night.

This tyre comes unboxed.

Note: scales not included

Schwalbe Kojak light tyre - features:

Brompton say: "Replacing the Stelvio for 2010, the Kojak is the fastest tyre we've ever fitted on the Brompton; lighter and more puncture resistant (thanks to a RaceGuard strip) than its predecessor; a Kevlar bead also allows it to be folded, making it easy to pack as a spare. Finished with reflective sidewalls."

Note: These Brompton technical videos may be useful in your tyre replacement task: (we strongly recommend against the use of tyre levers when installing tyres and inner tubes as it can often result in damage to the tyre, inner tube of both).

Review Title: More mudguard clearance

I like to tour with my Brompton, mixed surfaces from hard to grit. I have found that on gritty paths mud can accumulate between the Brompton factory fitted tyre and mudguard since there is very little clearance, on some occasions I have had to stop and dig the dirt out. Having fitted my new tyres I am pleasantly surprised to find I have much more clearance which I feel will stop the accumulation of grit in the first place. Yet to see how they cope on wet surfaces. Initial thoughts are the bike is more nippy which is also great and the main reason I replaced the original Brompton tyres. Great service from Brilliant Bikes, many thanks.

    Review Title: Great slicks for Brompton

    Very happy with the Kojaks. Bike is palpably lighter with them fitted and and about 20% faster it seems. Don't think I'll go back to the chunkier options, unless we have a very wet winter. Would recommend.

      Review Title: Best tyres for Brompton

      I ride these all year round. Probably a bit more puncture prone than marathons but weight and speed make up for it. Fantastic service from BB as always!

        Review Title: Cracking tyre, looks the business but check them regularly

        Unless you live up a muddy track you should try them. Easy to fit and remove, lightweight, low rolling resistance and will take high pressures. Check them for flints regularly as they will puncture, sometimes mysteriously overnight. But I can forgive this as they look good even before you put them on the bike.
