The Schwalbe Marathon GT 365 700c (HS 475) Tire is designed for year-round, all-condition use. Featuring an updated versatile tread pattern, a specially developed rubber compound, and Schwalbe's DualGuard puncture protection technology, this tire is ready for anything that Mother Nature can throw at it.
The new Lamella tread pattern features the perfect combination of deep-grooved aggressiveness, a fast-rolling center patch, and blocky shoulder tread allow this tire to find traction in everything from flat black-top, wet bike paths, or wintery-mixes over a variety of terrains. Complimented by Schwalbe's new "FourSeason" compound, this new rubber provides full grip no matter the time of year or presence of asphalt.

A technical masterpeice especially for cold, wet surfaces
I bought the GT 365 because I read the tire was formulated for cold and wet surfaces. Cold and wet surfaces are a potentially dangerous combination. For me, having the GT 365 gives peace of mind year round in the north eastern US where it is cold and wet for months of the year. Where I live the hilly roads have potholes, cracks and gravel strewn about. Now when I ride daily, day and night, I can be confident knowing I am well protected.
The tire is big, bigger than the stated size. The treads are well designed and aggressive. Grip on the road feels good. Ride is very smooth, even over potholes and cracks. There is little to no rolling resistance compared to my old semi-slicks but it does take a bit more effort from me to pedal up to speed. When reached it's smooth sailing. The tires make a light hum on pavement but this is not annoying to me. Before I had to carefully consider going off road. Not anymore. The tire weight is no issue at all.
Price is on the higher end for general tires but in this case you get a great value. It's really a masterpiece of a tire. I can't believe I would ever say that about a tire. Just look at it.
