Schwalbe Land Cruiser review
Tough, puncture-resistant and versatile, the Land Cruiser has been around a while, but more sizes than ever are available, from 1.75-2in for 26in wheels, and from 700×30 up to a gargantuan 45 or 1.75.
The tread pattern has a central proﬁle for tarmac and serrated side knobs for dirt roads.
Part of the Schwalbe’s ‘Basic’ range, the price is low at the cost of weight (870g for the 28×45) and simplicity, with no folding version.
It’s a touch heavier than the Marathon XR, and not rated to carry as much, but it’s much cheaper – the smaller sizes are £10.49.
