The Schwalbe Marathon Mondial 26" tire is designed to be the ultimate touring tire, regardless of the presence of asphalt. With a deep and aggressive tread pattern that pays homage to the Marathon XR, this wire bead tire is capable of conquering roads, tracks or trails on all continents.
Featuring Schwalbe's most sophisticated Endurance compound, the base, shoulder, and center of the tire feature unique compounds for a smooth rolling and durable tire. To provide the kind of puncture protection needed when touring over hundreds of miles of chip seal, Schwalbe has included the RaceGuard technology throughout the sidewalls as well as under the tread.
The Schwalbe Marathon Mondial measures 26 x 2.00 (50-559).

Good all around tire
I have only had these for a couple of months, but I have enjoyed the ride of these much more than my more dirt focused OEMs. For the about 5050 mix of dirtgravel and pavement I ride on my MTB, these are just about perfect. I notice some slip in the real loose gravel and sandy spots that I ride through, but I think it's actually less than the much more knobby tires these replace. Much faster on pavement. Easy to mount (first tire I have fully replaced). Got these for the puncture protection - no problems yet.
