Great commuter

I commuted four years past construction on south waterfront on one pair. These tires were amazing. No flats. I am only replacing them now (5000) miles because of many large pieces of glass embedded in the tire. The only other thing is the ride quality is a little more harsh than before - I rode at 80 psi during the last few months( I also got a full suspension MTB so I may be inclined to plush now).

Great grip and ride quality in a well made tire.

This tire is Supreme! I have ridden this company's products before and this is by far their most comfortable tire. Ride quality is excellent and it grips well in the rain. The reflective sidewall is great with disc brake bikes, since they stay free of brake dust. Just a really well made tire. So far I have about 600 miles on them in everything from asphalt to gravel with no flats or complaints.

Supple, smooth rolling, and no problems 350 miles in.

Good stopping power in the wet, supple, smooth rolling, and no problems 350 miles in. The reflective sidewall is a great option with discs breaks in urban environments. Easy to mount.

Expensive but worth it

Use it on a Cannondale Carbon Quick 1 that I ride to work. Roadside can be a little rough with gravel. Have had no troubles with the tire. I like the fact that it can be inflated to 100 psi.

My fourth set of Marathon's

I've used three types of Marathon's on three different bikes for several thousand miles each. I commuted on a set of Marathon Plus and liked the durability. They still have some life left after 5000 miles and flatted only once. They are heavy and have more tread than a pavement-only tire needs.

I wore out a set of Marathon Slicks (no longer made) on a touring bike. They weren't as durable as the Plus' but were stressed by a heavy touring load. Still a heavy tire similar to the Plus but without the tread.

This set of Marathon Supremes will go on my touring bike to replace the Slicks. I wore out a set of Bontrager Hard Case on my present commuter and am currently using Marathon Supremes. So far the Supremes are wearing better and flatting less than the Hard Cases. The only flat on the Supreme has been a small piece of wire, probably from a steel belted radial car tire. The Supremes are less than half the weight of the pluses, 430 grams vs 890 grams (700X35) and still very tough.

Occasionally I deflate the tires and inspect them for debris, squeezing the tire to expose embedded glass, etc. I am always amazed how much stuff is in the rubber but has been stopped by the kevlar belt.

I think I got a bad one.

I bought two of these tires to mount on salsa delgado rims for a 600 mile ride thru Oregon and California on the coast. at first I noticed they were a little slower than other 28c tires I have used, but they were fast enoigh and comfortable on my lighly loaded cross-check. About 350 miles in the front tire developed a bulge in the tread and sidewall on one side. I removed the tire to find it was showing threads on the inside of the tire where the bulge was. I replaced it with a michilen pilot sport and had no troubles that pilot sport was noticably faster and grippier than the schwalbe. Other than that my rear schwalbe had no problems and zero flats on any of the tires through out the trip. I will buy the michilins again though not the schwalbes.

Not Cheap - but worth it!

I love these tires. I have them on a bike that I use for commuting and rainy day rides. Although I primarily ride on paved roads, they handle a few treks across dirt. Plenty of grip on wet days, but still fast enough that they don't slow me down. They seem practically indestructible. After thousands of miles, I put on a new set (just because I thought maybe I should, although they weren't really showing any signs of wear). I never find knicks or cuts or embedded glass in them and the tread shows very little signs of wear.

Rolls fast, seems durable. Time will tell if it's worth the extra $

I bought this as a transition season tire for my Rivendell touring bike. I've been very happy in the few times I've ridden them. It's a relatively fast rolling 35 mm tire, not hard and sluggish like a Continental Gatorskin that I ownedsold. On a couple of warm winter rides, it performed well through a light layer of packed snow, slush, ice, mud and pavement. The grooves make noise on pavement and although I hate tire noise, it's not bad and worth the trade for wet performance. Time will tell if it's worth the significant expense for performance and flat resistance. I'd give it 5 stars and a higher value rating if these qualities are met.

Puncture resistance doesn't compare to Marathon Plus

I had been using the Marathon Plus for almost three years and could count my punctures on one hand. The Marathon Plus's weaknesses are weight and the struggle needed to mount them on a rim. The Marathon Supreme's marketing told me it would solve those two problems with close to the same level of puncture resistance. Oh well... two out of three ain't bad.

They certainly are some of the lightest 28mm touring tires around and they are a piece of cake to mount (especially compared to the Marathon Plus), but their puncture resistance is nothing compared to the Plus. After two rear tire flats in 200 miles, I decided to use the Supreme only on the front wheel and go back to the Plus on the rear. I still like the feel of the bike with this setup. Less mass around the front wheel makes the steering much more nimble but I'm still getting flats much more often than I'd like. Thorns are the bane of these tires. Most have penetrated the bottom of the sidewall but I've had a couple actually go straight through the tread. The Plus would have sent those thorns crying for mercy.

Great at first , gone in a flash . or so it seemed

Upon first glance these tires made me smile.

Easy mount and pressured up i gave them a ride, and they seemed fine.

During their life span i seemed to ride puncture free

beside's a nice nail and and auspiciously placed piece of glass.

after 3 - 4 months it's started to happen multiple rear flats , the tires were junk.

total mileage ruffly 2500-2750 .

75% urban-city riding

Much better than I expected!

I have always ridden on 'skinny' tires and never given much thought to anything else until I bought a cyclocross bike. I wanted a tire that I could take onto mountain dirt roads to handle the loose sand better but could still commute to work and ride the normal road climbs without having to fight the extra rolling resistance from a more aggresive tread pattern and without losing to much speed. Without a doubt I am suprised. While they are heavier and it does make it a little more difficult on the climbs the ride quality is better, they roll faster than you would think and the cornering is more sure footed. I bought the 35mm version but would like to try a slightly skinnier version (I'm pretty sure they make a 32mm) since these are a little hard to get through the brakes. 200 miles so far and no flats either.
