Schwalbe's classic touring tire gets a major update for even better durability. The 5th generation Marathon is tougher than ever, yet still robust enough for every-day transportation.

A 3mm thick Green Guard puncture protection belt offers improved flat resistance compared to previous models and is made from 1/3 recycled materials, so it's easier on the environment too.

The Marathon also boasts a slightly refined Endurance Rubber compound, delivering an even longer service life than the hard-wearing original version and better resistance to cracking.

Reflective stripe on sidewall. 95 PSI Max. 640 grams. Wire Bead. 700c x 32mm (ISO 32-622).

Great tire at a great price

I don't really have any complaints. I have the 38mm width. I've rolled through some sketchy areas (broken glass, potholes, etc) for over 1000 miles with no flats yet! It feels fast enough for touring/adventure rides.

Toyota Corolla tires

I have these mounted on a pretty nice older touring bicycle that I use as a commuter. The wheels have been replaced with modern mid-range wheelsets. I had been using a different model of Schwalbe tires until recently so I can't comment on long term reliability yet. Size is 700cx35

Tires seem well made with no obvious defects and were round. I had no problems mounting them without tools. I have read the reviews and I realise that tons of people have had problems getting these on. Maybe Schwalbe fixed the problem and over compensated? I was actually worried whether these were seating properly.

These are the Toyota Corolla of bicycle tires. Not especially nice. Definitely not sexy (see reflective strip sidewall). Cheapish, but not actually cheap.

Love the ride

Just put a pair of 700x35s on my Jamis Bosanova and it's like having a brand new bike. The tires were easy to get on the rims though 35mm was really pushing the fender clearance - a very tight fit. I only wish I had purchased these thousands of miles ago, the ride is so smooth and comfortable now having ditched the harsh Vittoria stock tires.

Great tire

So far almost 500 miles on these tires and they've been great. Previous tires were getting flats on a regular basis due to shards of shale. These just keep rolling on. I did a tough ride on an old railroad road bed which had about ten miles of the old coarse rail ballast still exposed with some fines to fill it in. That was ten miles of possible pinch flats, punctures, and kicking my tires off track. I was worried about punctures but the Schwalbe's laughed it off. I'm sold.

The ONLY Bike Tire Company to deal with

I gave up motorized transportation 8 years ago for several reasons. BTD is the only company I purchase tires from because their prices are the best, their customer service is immediate on the phone and very fast via email even on a week-end, their products and Mechanics Reviews are honest and very helpful in decision making although Schwalbe Marathon's are the only tire I use! Taylor is particularly customer oriented, honest, and knowledgeable in matching a customers riding experience with particular tires that would assist the customer to enjoy their riding experience whether its regular city riding or around the world. I have ridden across the US a couple of time, east-west & north-south, ride 6 days a week when not on the open road, have ridden 1000's of miles on Schwalbe Marathon 700cx35 tires and never had a flat period. I'm 69 yrs old and a cancer survivor and can still ride 50-65 miles a day and ride unassisted for months at a time-) Check out the Schwalbe video on youtube straight from the factory and prepare to be impressed especially the last 3 mins!

Ride to your dreams ... keep your head on a swivel ... and may the wind be at your back always

I recommend these people over any other online entity because of their knowledge, experience, customer care, range of products, and their pricing. You'll enjoy the experience of purchasing quality products from this company. Look no further

Great tires

On my first trip across the country I had 20 flat tires, on the second trip I put Schwalbe marathon plus tires on. I ended up with 3800 miles without a single flat tire, and I still got some more miles on them after I got back. My touring bike weighs 30 pounds, I was carrying about 50 pounds of gear, and I weigh about 200 pounds so they were pretty well loaded down. That was about ten years ago and I have been using Schwalbe tires every since.

New favorite commuter tire

I have been using gator skins for probably a decade. It seems like the last couple years the quality of them were slipping a bit. I started getting a lot more flats during my 10-mile each way commute. I used to go entire years without flats and suddenly it was oncemonth. I decided to start looking around for a new commuter tire and gave these marathons a try. I've had them for a couple months now and no flats so far. I'm very happy with the handling and grip as well. The traction is definitely better than the contis and the rolling resistance doesn't seem much more than the 28mm gatorskins I was using. I also tried the marathon plus. Those are considerably heavier and have greater rolling resistance than the regular marathons. For the price, puncture resistance, and weight savings I have definitely found a new favorite commuter tire. Also, that super-bright reflective band on the sidewall gives motorists no excuse for not seeing you from the side at night, which is a huge bonus for people like me who ride to work before the sun comes up.

The only negative thing I have to say about these tires is that they are extremely difficult to mount especially the first time. It took several tries to get the bead to seat properly so I didn't have a thud-thud-thud due to the tire not being concentric with the wheel.

Excellent tires but difficult to get on and off

The tires were excellent. The ordering process was easy and hassle free. Shipping was right on time.

My only gripe was that the tires were very difficult to get on and off the rims even while using talc. I asked my LBS for some advice and they sold me a tire bead jack and it worked perfectly. The tires are great with much increased traction and responsiveness. They are a few grams heavier than my old racing tires, but the increase in performance far outweighs the difference.

No more flats

I have been riding these tires for a year now and have not had a flat. I use them on the bike paths in town where we have a lot of broken glass. Also use them on a bike i set up to ride on gravel. If you don't like flats when you would rather be riding I recommend you give these tires a try.

No flats

The tire compound on this just feels tougher and better manufactured than any other tire. Frankly any other tire feels flimsy and cheap. They feel good on forest paths also but loose rocks have a hard time. Combined with great cust service from BT direct, these are an excellent buy. Don't forget tire levers to put them on.

If you're tired of fixing flats on the road...

Yes, I have my fingers crossed, but... Five years and hundreds of city, trail, and road miles and not one flat. They are heavy but extremely durable. Currently using them on my one year old Specialized Cirrus.

Reliable tire

3200 miles and I finally got a flat, big chunk of glass. I practically tore my fingers apart trying to get the glass out - I was impressed with how hard it was to remove, I kind of felt like Wiley Coyote pulling on a rubber band - the thing just wouldn't let go. The Greenguard is tough stuff, hard to get things through it and that's why it's been such a reliable tire.

Low rolling resistance is nice too.

10 month update

After 10 months of usagestorage and several hundred miles I am very pleased with this tire and Continental tube combination. Looks great and performs well. I upgraded my overall rating of this tire from 4 stars to 5 and ordered a 2nd tiretube combination today to replace my back hybrid Kendra. Prices are good from BTD as I typically shop wAmazon Prime but in this case BTD was competitive on listed prices and only slightly higher with shipping considered (we pay for Amazon Prime but they deliver free). Delivery is a bit slower from BTD than Amazon but I'm in no hurry this time.

Smooth and confident ride

I purchased these tires as an exact replacement set - the prior pair have over 4K miles and counting on a combination of hard surface and gravel trails without a single puncture. I enjoy the smooth ride, reliability, and confidence to hold a line.

Long-wearing!

I've been using Schwalbe Marathons for years. They serve very wall for a long time in my daily commutes to the gym and work on neighborhood streets and gravel trails. I rarely get a flat. They take a little more muscle to mount than less-expensive tires I've tried, but I suspect that is a sign of the quality of materials. Highly recommended.

The Perfect Commuter Tire

I have these on my Trek 7.3fx bike that I use daily to commute to work. I ride over potholes, gravel and all sorts of miscellaneous junk and have NEVER had a flat. After 2,200 miles there is almost no visible wear. I have a level of trust in these tires I never before thought possible.

In addition to commuting, I put in longer rides some evenings and most weekends and will say these tires also roll pretty easy. They would not be my first choice for fast club rides, but they are not really meant to be a racing or training tire. They are my first choice for 50 and 100 mile charity rides. They will not let you down.
