Schwalbe Magic Mary is a 26 inch tire favored by professional Downhill and Enduro riders. In the Super Gravity version it is much lighter than traditional Downhill tires but nevertheless with extremely stable sidewalls and protection. With her shoulder knobs Mary digs her claws into the ground at every turn and really gets a grip. The intermediate profile gives the rider control in almost any terrain. With its open tread pattern the tire cleans itself as if by magic, even when the ground is wet. Magic Mary is the best decision for up to 80% of all tracks. It is suited for Enduro, Bike Park and also Downhill World Cup. Optionally available with TrailStar or with VertStar Triple Compound, with Super Gravity or SnakeSkin carcass construction as wired tire for hard downhills or as folding tire.
TrailStar-Triple-Compound is optimized for Enduro and Freeride. Triple Nano compound was unsuitable performance-wise and the rolling resistance of Gooey Gluey was too high. TrailStar has substantially more grip, better damping and handling control. Nevertheless, the compound is not overly heavy, making it suitable for climbing too. VertStar-Triple-Compound - for Downhill and Freeride. It is a further development of the Gooey Gluey compound, but now even softer with extremely good damping properties.
Super Gravity has a new carcass construction at its core. The principle is a familiar one from motorbike tires. Schwalbe has taken the best features and developed them further for the MTB. In the past Schwalbe uses for classic downhill tire constructions six layers under the cap. This adds unnecessary weight and unfortunately also makes the cap rigid and hard. For Super Gravity the sidewalls are made up of four layers of carcass material, but there are only two layers underneath the cap. This is achieved with an overlap on the sidewalls. Additionally the whole tire (not just the sidewalls) is encased in SnakeSkin puncture protection. It weighs little – and it helps a lot. In fact, it stabilizes and protects while remaining extremely flexible. At the same time it is ideal for the Tubeless Ready application. Hence this tire offers downhill ruggedness at enduro weight!
SnakeSkin offers a light weight and simultaneously effective protection of the sidewalls because of Snake Skin fabric.
Schwalbe Magic Mary folding tires are featuring TL-Easy technology. The new standard for all Evo MTB tires. The new monofilament sidewall fabric surpasses the previous SnakeSkin fabric in three ways: Even greater cut resistance, higher penetration strength and above all: it makes Tubeless conversion extremely easy and safe!
