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).

Night and Day difference!

I recently bought a diamondback Sorrento....and yes, they are only entry level. But if you do the research right....you dont need to spend Gs on a nice commutter rig. All ive done is upgrade the seat to a prologo nago X8 and switched the stock hideous nuckles to schwalbes Mondials! Ive noticed the difference the moment i took the first stroke. This tyres are definitely smother and quicker. Currently running at 55psi. That will or may change after i explored all my routes. No...im not doing any hardcore mtb...just an old man getting a kick from getting groceries on style and efficiency on his new old toy.

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.

Best touring bike tire I've ever used

I've been riding the Schwalbe Marathon Mondial tires for over 8 years. I had a Surly LHT 700C and had been riding the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires for years. But in 2016, I bought a custom Co-Motion Pangea (26" wheel) and it came with the Schwalbe Marathon Mondial beaded 26"x 2.0 tires. Rode those on several tours but as the bike has the S&S couplers, getting the beaded Mondial tires into the S&S hardcase was a bit of a problem. Started riding the Mondial 26x2.0 folding tire and liked it better, it's lighter, easier to mount and just as resistent to tire flats. So I've been riding the folding Mondials now for about 5 years and can't remember the last flat I've had riding these tires. This past summer I rode the EuroVelo 6 from Paris across France to Romania through some knarly trails in Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Serbia, lot of rock and had zero flat in the entire trip. I highly recommend these tires for bike touring. The folding Mondial is getting harder to find and when you do find them, they want $80+ for a single tire which is why I'm going back to the beaded (since I don't use my S&S hardcase for travel around the world anymore) Mondial as it's about 1/2 the price.
