    Schwalbe ONE Wheelchair Tires

    Any of you guys running these yet?
    I'd love to give these a try, but I wonder if they last as long as Marathons?

    Good question. Why are they more expensive then Marathons especially without the tread?

    I use them .I like the extra width to me better ride. I would say they wear really well last pair had 18 months wheeling and another 400 plus miles on the attachable hand bike probably could have went longer

    I've got the old sort (no tread) on my chair. They're very lightweight, easy to put on, and have low rolling resistance. Re wear; imo they're nowhere near as robust or long lasting as MPs. Also the rear of the chair sits about 1/4" lower compared to MPs (just in case that's a problem). I bought mine in a clearance sale, 5 pound for the pair. On hindsight at that price I wish I'd bought up whatever stock they had left. I think the standard retail price is quite high for what feels like a flimsy tyre (but I've not seen the new version).

    I'm thinking about getting these when I wear through my current set of MPs.

    Anyone have any further feedback in the past year or so?

    Is the rolling resistance noticably less than Marathons?

    I'm not a fan of that brand. I bought some marathons that were suppose to be puncture proof. They wore out twice as fast as a cheaper brand I usually buy and I ran something over in my garage and it popped my tire.
