 Schwalbe Land Cruiser MTB Tyre
Schwalbe Land Cruiser MTB Tyre
The Land Cruiser is a Kevlar Guard Puncture Protected trekking tyre, ideal for cruising. The rolling tread is superb on pavements, yet it's diamond textured side lugs afford plenty of grip on light loose terrain.

"I have put this on my wife’s bike and these tyres are great. They are easy to fit, and look good. They grip well on all types of surface, and the rolling resistance on the road is reduced because of the Schwalbe central tread pattern. Great all round MTB tyre."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Rugged, Versatile, Good Fit, great for every day use

"This tyre is great, the rubber is a great compound. The tread is such is that it grips in all weather and disperses water very well. I originally thought that these tyres would be too narrow for my MTB, but becuase the rubber is very tacky, and the tread goes right round onto the side walls it grips very well on lose stones, roads and trails. However I would recommed off road tyres if your going to do proper off road cycling. For every day use and commuting it they are great. The down side with these 'type' of tyres is that they require to be kept at a High Pressure so ideally anywhere between 60-95PSI. This has totally transformed my MTB and made road riding much easer, and you will hardly ever use any lower gears when road riding as there is far less friction then traditional MTB tyres. Also these tyres can be harder to fit fit that normal tyres due to the Kevlar tyre wall (punture protection) which is very ridged."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, refelective line
Cons: requires really high psi /bar, could be hard to fit

My "knoblies" are 26x1.95. What size of "slick" should I order?

I would recommed you order anything from 26x1.5 to 26x2.1 just remember the lower the number the slimmer the tyre is going to be, it depends if your commuting / road use.
