Brompton Kojak 16 inch tyre - weighs just 185g

The lightest tyre available for your Brompton folding bike!

This Brompton Kojak was one of two replacements for the Schwalbe Stelvio tyre which was discontinued by Schwalbe in 2009. It is made specifically for Brompton Bicycle Limited

(The other was a Schwalbe folding bead Kojak which was also later discontinued in favour of a wired bead version of the Kojak, adding a bit of weight)

In 2017 it's still going strong and is the fastest / lightest Brompton tyre available - though this comes at the expense of some puncture protection

The Kojak tyre is offered as a factory fit option on all new Brompton bikes - since January 2010 - it weighs in at just 185g so saves approximately 232g over the standard Brompton green/kevlar tyre.

Did you know the Schwalbe Kojak Tyre gets its name from the fictional 1970's TV detective of the same name - Kojak - played by Telly Savalas?

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

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

Tip: To help avoid punctures / increase confidence - we add some Stans Notubes sealant

This is what is used in mountain bike tubeless tyre setup. It's added to the inside of the tube

Sealant is added by removing the inner tube valve core - using a valve core tool, squirting in the sealant and replacing the valve core

If you do then get a thorn / piece of glass into the tyre - the sealant helps to fix the puncture (often without you knowing)

Brompton Schwalbe Kojak light tyre - features:

ETRTO size: 32-349 (16" x 1 1/4")
Weight: 185g
Inflation pressure: 70-115 PSI
Inner tube: Schwalbe AV4

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).
