349mm Tires

Primo 19-349 (16x1) 7.5 bar (110 psi) 123.5 g $20 (smooth herringbone tread pattern, tan wall, made by Cheng Shin in Taiwan. Note: this is an ultra narrow small diameter tyre and should only be used on the front of a LWB with a light rider or on smooth tracks, also comes in 400mm and 451mm versions) Z.K.

PS This tire is designed for the front of racing wheelchairs, where it probably carries less than 20 lbs. Use on a bike at your own risk. M.S.

Primo Comet 37-349 (16x1 3/8) 6 bar (85 psi) 215.5 g $21 (smooth herringbone tread pattern, tan wall, made by Cheng Shin in Taiwan) Z.K.

PS This is THE performance tire for the Pre-AM Moultons. Much positive comment about this tire on the Moulton list. Speed is excellent, wear is good, but wet traction is less than ideal, and the sidewalls are a bit fragile. MS

New Primo Comet Kevlar belted 37-349 (16x1 3/8) 6 bar (85 psi) actual weight: 212 g $25 (smooth herringbone tread pattern, tan wall, made by Cheng Shin in Taiwan)

New Schwalbe Marathon Kevlar belted 37-349 (16x1 3/8) 7 bar (100 psi)
Claimed weight: 310 g, actual weight: 240 g $20 (grooved hybrid tread pattern with slick centre ridge, black wall with reflective stripe and dynamo grooves, made in Korea) The Schwalbe Marathon is definately tougher, and probably slower than a Primo Comet. It has a Kevlar belt and thicker wall contruction. Z.K.
