Punctures become obsolete with the Marathon Plus. The SmartGuard® layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers a particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer. The SmartGuard belt does not increase rolling resistance. The Marathon Plus rolls as easily as a tire without protection. Wire bead. Blackwall with reflective strip.
- THE FLAT-LESS TIRE: Schwalbe‘s best selling model. The most puncture resistant pneumatic tire there is. *
- ROLLING RESISTANCE: The patented, 5 mm thick SmartGuard layer, when compared to all generic products, has a significant advantage in rolling resistance.
- RECYCLING: Also in the SmartGuard, we use a proportion of recycled C50rubber from old latex products.
- "ANTI-AGING“ SIDE WALL: It now lasts much longer before developing unsightly cracks when subjected to use with too low air pressure.
- E-BIKE READY: Due to its great properties Marathon Plus is an ideal choice for E-Bikes (E-25). The main sizes are approved and tested for E-bikes up to 50 km/h.
- FLAT-LESS WITH MARATHON PLUS: Only Marathon Plus tires make your bicycle flat-less. The 5mm thick puncture guard protects even against thumbtacks.
* NOTE: It is impossible to guarantee that a flat will never happen, but the Marathon Plus has the best defense against everyday tire wreckers such as glass, flints or metal shards. Use a pressure gauge to adjust tire pressures as the common 'thumb check' is insufficient due to the special construction of the Marathon Plus.
