Schwalbe Tyres are the official Tyres of the BDS. Schwalbe for 2016 will again sponsor the Elite men and the Elite Women by being the major contributor to the £10,000.00 prize fund available at the British Downhill Series.
For over 70 years Schwalbe have dominated the two wheeled tyre industry in Germany and Europe, being voted best MTB tyre brand in Germany for the past two years. From the very early beginnings where the company founder, Earnest-Wilhelm Bohle capitalised on the developing cycle industry, to the ultra modern distribution facility near Cologne, Schwalbe have continued to design and manufacture some of the finest bicycle tyres available. Schwalbe’s success is due in part to the effort it makes in product development from lab tests at the manufacturing facility to the hardest proving grounds of all, professional cycle racing.
