With a new tread pattern, this classic touring tire continues its legacy of incredible puncture resistance and durability, making it still the go-to option for the most demanding urban or trekking applications.

The Marathon Plus features Schwalbe's newly developed smart guard puncture protection belt is made of flexible special rubber that offers particular resistance to thorns and shards. The outer rubber is extremely hard wearing and features a grooved tread for traction on dirt and gravel roads. The Marathon Plus also has a reflective stripe on the sidewall for enhanced visibility.

This version of the Marathon Plus is available in 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO; 115 Max PSI), 700c x 28mm (28-622 ISO; 100 Max PSI), 700c x 32mm (32-622 ISO; 95 Max PSI), 700c x 35mm (37-622 ISO; 85 max. PSI), 700c x 38mm (40-622 ISO; 85 max. PSI), and 700c x 45mm (45-622 ISO; 75 max PSI). Wire bead. Black/Reflective Stripe.

Please note that due to its extra-thick tread, this tire runs ~2mm wider/taller than typical Schwalbe tires. As such, the ISO width printed on the sidewall is actually greater than the common size printed on the tire (example: 700c x 35mm = 37-622 ISO). To avoid confusion, we sell this tire by its common 700c measurement, not its wider ISO measurement.

The best wet weather commuting tire ever.

I've been using this tire on my fixed gear rain bike for the last 4 years. I'm on my second set and have had one flat. Yeah the tire is heavy and hard to mount the first time but the puncture resistance and traction is worth it. I even put a set on my cargo bike because I definitively don't want a flat while carrying a load. Do yourself a favor and get a set of these tires if you ride where road debris is killing your current tires.

easy mounting

I can't stand peeling the skin off my thumbs trying to mount difficult tires without tools so I was a little concerned reading through other peoples reviews that these tires would be difficult to mount. My experience was completely different. These were some of the easiest mounting tires I've ever used (and I go through a lot of tires and wheels). I mounted them up on some heavy duty touring wheels and since weight obviously was giving way to reliability I used a super thick slime filled tube. I'll wrote down the date I mounted them so I can revel in the acievement of running a tire 'til the tread is gone without ever getting a single flat. That's the confidence I have in these tires. Confidence isn't always something you can purchase. Thanks Schwalbe! Thanks Biketiresdirect!

For long distance touring these are the best tire on the market.

St Petersburg, Russia to Madrid, Portugal, 5000 miles no flats. Buenos aires, Argentina to Lima Peru also 5000 miles and no flats. No tires better.

Durable & Long wearing

I use this tire on my commuting bike. It has been great. 1 year of riding and no flats (most important consideration). There is still plenty of tread. It may be a little less supple than other tires but since I don't want a flat at 4am this is a wonderful tire.

Exelent tires to ride in the city

I love that fact that I haven't got one flat since I've got my Scwalbe marathon plus tires.The down fall is that you lose speed ,but I guess ill save the Schwalbe Ultremo DD for the friendly races.

Exceptional tire for 'worry free' touring

My first impression is 'awesome'. I use these on my 'city' bike, which is also my 'beater' road bike. I get a smooth ride with the 28s and great handling, especially cornering. I don't worry about all the small roadway debris and patches of sand that I might with my 23s.

Best commuter tire out there

Best commuter tire I've ever used. Zero flats in almost 2 years of daily loaded commuting.

Switched the front and back when rear showed wear.

Hard to mount first time. Use zip ties to temporarily hold tire.

These tires will not get you on the podium

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments

Hi,

Thanks for the review! We don't actually recommend swapping your front and back tires—instead, we suggest moving your front tire to the back and purchasing a new front tire. The rear tire does wear faster, but it's important for your front tire to have a good tread, since the majority of your traction will come from the front tire.

Thanks,
Stacia

Good tire for Hybird Street and hard dirt

This tire works well on my old beat up 7100 trek. I use this bike for errands around town, mostly paved roads and some hard packed dirt. No flats so far. This is a much better tire then what the locale bike shop had to offer (prices about the same).

This tire has that hard rubber feel to it so flat tires are not likely. If you do get a flat it will be by something big and aggressive like a big nail of large cactus thorn (I live in a desert). Tire also has some kind of built in liner so no need to add that liner strip you can buy at the bike shop.

A solid and stable tire

I am a 4-season bike commuter (37 mile round trip), and have switched to a set of Marathons for the winter cycling season in Seattle. One thing I need in my daily commute is a sure-footed tire that is not prone to flatting. The Marathon comes through nicely in both counts. They are significantly heavier than the gatorskins I use during the spring and summer, but well worth it for the winter riding security I need. I recommend these tires.

the toughest tire I know

I have ridden these for thousands of miles on city streets and they have been almost puncture free. They are heavy and very difficult to mount when new, but if reliability is the priority as it is for me, they are outstanding.

No problems yet. Haven't done a lot of riding on them yet, but seem like they will be great for when I'm commuting more.

good tires

I was happy when I got the tires, came in just in time. Thats when I open the box up and felt the tires they were a bit heavy, that didn't really bother me. Now, when i was installing the tires on the rims my rear fit just fine and so did the front, but when I put it back on the fork it didn't fit the tire was rubbing my fork. It was pretty lame that was happening, even tho I got the right size tires (700c25x) and I found out the reason why, these tires are a bit thicker and heavier then other tires, so the size they say Isn't really the size. I also found out what people were talking about the rolling of the tire. You do feel a bit sluggish with this tires, like you have to pedal more to go faster. Beside that, the tires did not pop. Next time I'm going for gatorskin.

Wears like Iron, rides like solid rubber

These are the most puncture and wear resistant tires I've ever ridden. There is a weight and liveliness penalty, but that's not why you buy them. Owned three different sizes on different bikes, never a puncture in many thousands of miles. Rear tires last a few thousand miles before wearing through to the blue layer. They handle fire roads and limestone trails well. Very round and they mount well, too.

Sturdy tire

In the past three years, I've put 4,000 miles on a set of these tires, riding roads and trails on my touring bike loaded with 220 pounds (gear and rider). I've had only six flats, all on the rear tire, each flat caused by a metal nail or screw that would have flattened an automobile tire. I think that's a pretty good track record - good enough for me to stick with this make and model for my next set of tires, and good enough for me to recommend this make and model to others.

Another feature I like about these tires is the reflective stripe on the sidewall. I think this feature improves my visibility to drivers when I'm cycling roads during twilight hours.

excellent tires..and easy to install

I use these on my commute to work. Not any flats yet. Thought they would be tough to install, but they were as easy as any other tire, just view the you-tube video.

Good stuff, best tires I own.

sturdy tire, but hard to install

This is the sturdiest tire I have every bought. We were on our 800 mile ride down the Oregon and California coast. I put the tires on and had trouble with pinching the tube. This happened twice until I got the hang of making sure the tube was completely seated. After that no problems. The tire seems a bit slow with more tread than other tires like Gator skins, but I am looking forward to many miles without problems.

Good durable wet weather tire.

I bought this tire for use on my road bike during the wet season in Seattle. Very impressed with the quality of the tire and the performance on wet roads. They are heavier than normal tires , but for me it's a good trade-off for the performance.

Clunky heavy tire, but did the job against New Mexico goatheads. Not exactly a supple casing, so hard to mount.
