TerraTrike Becomes Schwalbe Tires Distributor


TerraTrike, the world’s largest manufacturer of recumbent trikes, will now be distributing some hard to find 20” (ISO 406) and 24” (ISO 507) tires that are manufactured worldwide by Schwalbe Tires (Ralf Bohle GmbH). Models like the Big Apple, Land Cruiser and Tryker and long time standards like the Marathon can now be easily acquired.

“Now bike shops can enjoy one-stop shopping for nearly all of their trike and tire needs.” Jeff Yonker, Marketing Director of TerraTrike continues, “This is a unique partnership in that we are now distributing tires for trikes that were previously hard to find through normal distribution channels. It allows our dealers to purchase trikes and tires on the same order with one phone call.”

Owned by the Bohle family since its establishment in 1922, Schwalbe is now being managed by the third generation with headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in USA/Canada, France, Great Britain, Italy, and the Netherlands – plus distributors in over 40 countries.

They are the specialists, ”tire fanatics” and 100% committed to bikes as well as wheelchairs. Their tires are not available everywhere, but exclusively from quality distributors and specialty shops that adhere to Schwalbe’s strict guidelines of expert advice and excellent customer service.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with TerraTrike” states Celeste Steindl, Director of Schwalbe Tires North America, “because we know they share the same high standards we hold ourselves to in providing the best products and customer care to our global clientele.”

Since 1996, TerraTrike has been focused on recumbent trikes and accessories. This partnership creates a blend of top-rated tires and top-rated trikes to the benefit of IBDs throughout the USA and beyond. If you are an IBD and are not yet an Authorized TerraTrike Dealer, you can still purchase tires through TerraTrike.
