Schwalbe Tube #3-16″ x 1.75-2.5″


SKU: SCHTU17 Category: Tag:



Try out this premium Schwalbe tube on your BOB trailer or other bike cargo trailer with 16″ wheels. The #3 tube is recommended for larger 1.75″ to 2.125″ tire sizes including the BOB Yak and Ibex tires, Schwalbe Marathon 16 x1.75, Maxxis Hookworm and the Schwalbe Big Apple.

This is what Schwalbe has to say about these tubes: “Extremely air-tight! Less air loss means having to inflate less often. Our unique rubber mixture makes it possible. Extremely reliable! Each Schwalbe tube is individually examined twice at the factory to ensure air-tightness. Special quality control that prevents unpleasant surprises.”

We recommend always keeping a few spares around the house as they can be difficult to find in a pinch. It is especially recommended to bring a few for touring and traveling with your bike trailer.

Available in Presta or Schrader. (Choose valve style to match the tubes on your bike.)

For Presta valves, it is recommended that you get the tube with a Presta Valve Stem Saver if using the tube on a rim drilled for Schrader valves such as on the BOB Trailer Wheel.

  • Presta or Schrader valve
  • Rated for 1.75″-2.5″ tire width
