Brompton Schwalbe Marathon Racer 16 inch tyre

The Schwalbe Marathon 16 x 1 1/3inch tyre was introduced for the 2018 model Brompton and is the entry level of three tyres fitted as standard in the factory on the current Brompton folding bike range (as at end 2018 - along with Kojak and Marathon)

It is very slightly narrower (at 1 1/3 inches) than the old standard Brompton kevlar (previously known as "green" for it's green label) tyre (which was 1 3/8 inches wide)

The tyre is directional - this means it is designed to run in one direction - so should be fitted accordingly. There is a direction indicator moulded into the side wall of the tyre, it is not that easy to spot - we had add a picture of it to try and help

Schwalbe Marathon Racer 16 x 1 1/3 inch features / details:

ETRO size: 35-349
Tyre pressure: 65 psi (min) to 110 psi (max) or 4.5 bar (min) to 7.5 bar (max)
Weight: 300g
Tyre bead: Wired
Directional: Yes - so the tyre needs to be fitted the correct way around

Inner tube: AV4 (Car type / Schrader valve)
Inner tube: SV4 (Presta / racing type valve)

We always recommend using no tools to fit your new tyre (i.e. hands and fingers only) to your Brompton.
Using tyre levers often results in damage to the inner tube (pinching it when levering on the tyre) or to the tyre bead (trying to force the wire bead over the rim with brute force)
 
Installing without tyre levers may seem difficult (or impossible) at first - but, honestly,  it's just a matter of technique
The below video shows how to install a tyre without tools - in fact it's the even tougher Marathon plus - but the technique is exactly the same
 
 
In order to replace the tyre / tube you also need to remove the wheel (either front or rear) - the below videos show how it should be done.

weight incorrect?

I think they're 255g? The normal Marathon is 420g?

Schwalbe Racer Review

Easy to fit, but watch out for glass splinters in side wall (1 racer written off after 5 days) but other than that a good quality tyre
