If the construction of Schwalbe‘s 29in Magic Mary Tires is any indication, then their namesake is less peaceful Madonna and more enduro ripper queen. Mary starts with Schwalbe‘s Snakeskin fabric, which reinforces her dramatically light tire body in order to maintain a claimed 885g per tire while preserving the kind of puncture protection you‘d expect from a miraculously capable, true all-mountain tire.
Mary is also tubeless-ready, which confers yet more weight savings, and Schwalbe‘s TrailStar compound actually comprises three different materials: a supple, fast base; a mid-grip center strip; and high-grip shoulders. The knobs themselves are spacious, tall, flat-topped, and fairly broad, which means that Magic Mary is well suited to just about anything a trail can through her way. Hard-pack corners, rooty trail furniture, technical rock gardens Mary is the one tire you‘ll need for a World Cup weekend or a season of all-mountain riding.
