This is Schwalbe's best selling model and the most puncture resistant tyre in the range and in addition to the superior puncture protection Marathon Plus has many other features including rolling resistance. It is impossible to guarantee that a flat will never happen, but the Marathon Plus has the best defence against everyday tyre wreckers such as glass, flints or metal shards. The SmartGuard layer is made from a flexible, special rubber offers superior resistance to these shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this 5mm thick SmartGuard protective layer.
- Rolling resistance. The patented, 5 mm thick SmartGuard layer, when compared to all generic products, has a significant advantage in rolling resistance.
- SmartGuard, we use a proportion of recycled rubber from old latex products.
- “Anti-aging” side wall. It now lasts much longer before deveolping unsightly cracks when subjected to use with too low air pressure.
- E-Bike ready. Due to its great properties Marathon Plus is the best choice for E-Bikes (E-25). The main sizes are approved and tested for E-bikes up to 50 km/h.
