About Schwalbe Airmax Pro Tyre Gauge
The Schwalbe Airmax Pro digital tyre pressure gauge is very precise, measuring pressures up to 160 psi (11 bar) and is suitable for both Schraeder (car type) and Presta valves.
Test tyre pressures at least once per month with a pressure gauge. Testing by thumb is completely unreliable as with just half of the required pressure the tyre will feel hard. Insufficient air pressure is the most common bicycle problem that results in dramatically increased rolling resistance and premature tyre wear.
More About The Manufacturer Schwalbe
Schwalbe is a brand name of Ralf Bohle GmbH, a German manufacturer of bicycle, Scooter and wheelchair tires. The company is a third generation, family owned Mittelstand business with global reach. Schwalbe produces a wide range of tires for different cycling applications, but is best known for its commuting, touring and utility tyres such as the Marathon range. Bicycles with small wheel sizes such as 16" (Brompton) or 20" (BMX) are also catered for, a market ignored by some larger manufacturers.
Schwalbe is based in Reichshof-Wehnrath near Cologne, Germany, although manufacturing is carried out by its Korean joint-venture, production partner, PT Hung-A, in its Indonesian factory.
