The Big Apple started off the Balloonbike trend ten years ago:
without using complicated technology!
Air cushion tires are used as natural
suspension. Inflated to
around 2 Bar a Balloonbike rolls really easily and with a
full suspension effect. A normal tire with a width of 37 mm must be inflated to
a rock-hard 4 bar in order to roll similarly well.
Balloonbike comfort is also available in the Marathon Evo
with widths of 50 mm and more (Supreme, Deluxe, Mondial).
