These tires are awesome

These tires are great. I have been using Schwables exclusively for the last 15 years on all my bikes. I know they are good, because the Dutch remember the Germans invading Netherlands. However in spite of that , the only tires you can buy in Netherlands are Schwables. They also love the Rohloff hubs, which I also have on my recumbent Hase Trike along with the 20 x 1.75 inch and 16 x 1.75 tires. You need to add to the description, bicycle vehiclist which I have been since 1985. A bicycle vehiclist owns no car and does everything by bike, most people do with their cars. My cargo bike can carry passengers and has as much floor space as a BMW motorcycle. It has electric assist for use on the steep hills here. I do use public transportation, but unfotrunately Amtrak will not take recumbents which are my most favorite bike to tour with.

The Best - no other competition

I ride 10,000 miles a year, don't use a car, and ride year-round. I use bikes for fitness, transportation, and emotional joy riding in wilderness on and off-road. I switched to wide 2 inch tires 5 years ago for the road, no longer use my standard 700c x 25mm. Now I ride 26x2 for comfort, speed and thick casings. Finding a "truly" flat resistant tire for a bicycle is almost impossible, and then add quality (round and true) and it was impossible...until the Schwalbe. The PLUS tire been on my bike for 2 years now, with one flat, the wear rate is low and the corner gripping good. I am now replacing all my bike tires with Schwalbe. I ride the road in the mountains, safety is my #1 concern, 40mph descents on tires if punctured and blow out is not safe. I feel confident in the Schwalbe for these descents. This year I added SlimeTubes to my Schwalbe for even more protection and automatic repair on the road, without stopping.

Excellent for touring

I used the Schwalbe Marathon Plus 26" tire on my last two rides across America. Each ride starts at the Capital Building in Salem Oregon and ends at the Capital Building in Washington DC. 3300 miles of touring and 700 miles of training (in one year) on the same set of tires. Only one flat tire in two years. I'm currently training on last years tires and I'll replace them with a new set of Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires (HS 440) before I leave this spring on my third ride across America. GREAT TIRE

Installed on our tandem for unpaved trail riding.

We installed the 26x1.75 tires on our DaVinci tandem in preparation for riding the C&O Canal. We were looking for a tire that would be good for the weight and service of a tandem on rough and uneven surfaces.

The tread is an aggressive touring type that should be good on a variety of surfaces.

We have not ridden the C&O yet, but we have been putting on some miles on rough roads and some dirt path trails with good result. The ride is smooth and stable.

Very pleased with this tire.

Excellent tire

I have put over 300 miles on these tires with absolutely no problems. I am using them on an electric bike most on bike paths and streets. I highly recommend them to other e-bikers. Good traction and no flats, which I was getting on the bike's original equipment on the same terrain.

A heavier tire let me loose the thorn resistant inner tube.

I wanted a puncture resistant tire. It doesn't take much to get injured, a friend had a blowout at 10 mph, broke his ankle. Serious enough injury that it requiring revision surgery. I like the tires, I will however change out my thorn resistant inner tubes because the combination is too heavy. My mistake no reflection on the tire.

The best tire you can put on your recumbent trike.

My wife and I have rolled over 40,000 miles on some pretty remote trails with Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires on both of our HP Scorpion's. We have had only three punctures in three and a half years and one was a roofing nail that would have punctured an automobile tire. We wouldn't trust any other tire.

Smooth and Durable

I've installed this on my CatTrike road, which has a 26" rear wheel conversion kit. The combination of moving to a 26" wheel, a 1.75" tire, and the Schwalbe Marathon Plus has results in an incredibly smooth ride even over rough terrain. On a trike, that rear wheel is critical to the experience and this tire has made a huge difference.

Smooth and comfortable

I never would have guessed that just changing my tires would make such a huge difference. Now my ride is very comfortable, smooth, fast, responsive, and has excellent grip. They are worth the money that I paid for them.

Excellent Every Day Tire

I have used this product for many years for commuting, regular riding, and touring. It is very sturdy and has very significantly reduced flats. The time that it saves me for not having to fix flats is great. This is my tire of choice. I recommend it for regular riding, commuting, and touring.

High mileage and puncture resistant, this tire is worth the money and weight.

I use the Schwalbe Marathon Plus on my commute-utility bike. I ride it between 5,000 and 6,000 miles per year. This tire is the best I've found after experimenting for years. High Mileage. High Flat Resistance. Reasonable Price. Minimal weight penalty. An all-around great product. (Note Additionally, I run a double dose of Green Slime in each tube. I'd rather get a tiny bit more exercise by using heavier tires and tubes than deal with a flat when I'm in a hurry to get to where I'm going.)

Amazing powers

I bought a stromer ebike, and encountered frequent flats. 7 flats in 600 miles.

I bought these tires and set them next to my ebike and haven't had a flat since. I'm at 950 miles.

I will install them when I get my next flat. I probably just broke the magic by saying anything so that should be soon.

I understand these can be difficult to mount. There are you-tube videos

Suggest watching them.

based on physical inspection these are clearly more durable than the Schwalbe big ben balloon tires that came with bike

I commute year round, in the Portland OR area. I have logged over 4000 miles in 10 months. Even rode 3 miles on a flat, slayed the tube, but the tire is still performing. Schwalbe Marathon Plus are the best tires You get what you pay for.
