The foundation of all Active Line tires
is a high-quality 50 EPI carcass. Coarsely woven 20 or 24 EPI carcasses can
no longer be found in Schwalbe’s range. The much more densely woven 50
EPI carcass is far more puncture resistant and robust. At the same time the
fabric needs less rubber coating and thus has a reduced weight. Naturally
every Active Line tire has a puncture protection belt, a balanced rubber
compound, plus a functional and attractive tread design. Simply said: Active
Line is reliable, brand quality!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Locon Отличный рисунок протектора, но через 2 месяца лопнул бортировочный трос.
Это была бы отличная резина, если бы дольше служила. Хорошее движение по шоссе и по мокрому грунту. Однако через 2 месяца эксплуатации лопнул бортировочный трос, и шина отправилась на свалку. Возможно, кому-то повезет больше.

Just put a pair of these on my Cannondale Caad x Cyclocross bike which I use primarily as a road bike and on gravel / dirt tracks. They roll really well and are reassuringly grippy and sure-footed. On a more minor point, they look good on the bike too !!

fast when hard, grippy when soft and tougher than mother nature herself.
weighs about the same though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Not half bad...
Bought these to replace the Continental Speed Kings on my Crosser (which lasted hours rather than days) They are quite hefty, but once fitted they roll really well on road ('REALLY WELL' that should have been) I didn't expect that to be honest, cornering on road is like a 1970's car in an American movie... slooooow slides rather than all out grip, which is great fun-compared to a short fast slide-grip-pain which slick tyres seem to provide if someone of my abilities gets carried away.
No punctures yet, despite some fairly hard-core off road use which I suspect they weren't designed for & cornering grip is at least as good as the Speed Kings off road.
All in all, a great value tyre, seems hard-wearing, suprisingly capable off-road, down sides are only that it is a bit wooly cornering on road & is not a light tyre.

I ordered a 35mm reflective and got a 47mm instead (written on tyre and from measurement)
The funny thing is the bar code tag actually writes 35mm.
Not sure who got it wrong, but that aren't confidence inspiring.......

Needed a good set of tyres for general daily riding and the occasional trip off-road,so far no punctures and i have always felt secure on these tyres whatever the conditions.Would happily buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Fast, grippy, puncture resistant, great value!
Like other reviewers, I got these to replace the hopeless Conti Cyclocross Race tyres which came with my Genesis Day-One, which wore down to the canvass after only 500 miles of commuting (60:40 road:offroad) and punctured over 12 times during that period.
The Schwalbes have proven to be faster on the road (I put this down to the continual centre strip), gripper on hardpack and mud and so far no punctures in 200 miles of commuting and general abuse. The carcass advises a max. 65PSI, but I found them a bit too draggy on tarmac, and have had no problems thus far running them at 75PSI.
At £13 each, you can't be had!

The main thing that I have to add to previous reviews is that these have a very low rolling resistance. Bought these as a general purpose, do everything tyre and they have not disappointed. brilliant on tracks, trails, roads. On road they feel just like my 23c road tyres. Though these are not a thick plus tyre they seen to have a decent puncture resistance. I have unavoidably rode over quite a bit of glass. I have been doing quite a bit trail riding in the dark and I can occasionally hear glass crunching under the tyre. Experience tells me that the fact that I have had no punctures is not down to luck. I can confirm that they are better than expected when hitting mud patches and they are a touch unstable on shale, however they do not have the correct width/grip for tackling such surfaces. I have rated these tyres at a 5 as, for my purposes, they are brilliant.
