With a new tread pattern, this classic touring tire continues its legacy of incredible puncture resistance and durability, making it still the go-to option for the most demanding urban or trekking applications.

The Marathon Plus features Schwalbe's newly developed smart guard puncture protection belt is made of flexible special rubber that offers particular resistance to thorns and shards. The outer rubber is extremely hard wearing and features a grooved tread for traction on dirt and gravel roads. The Marathon Plus also has a reflective stripe on the sidewall for enhanced visibility.

This version of the Marathon Plus is available in 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO; 115 Max PSI), 700c x 28mm (28-622 ISO; 100 Max PSI), 700c x 32mm (32-622 ISO; 95 Max PSI), 700c x 35mm (37-622 ISO; 85 max. PSI), 700c x 38mm (40-622 ISO; 85 max. PSI), and 700c x 45mm (45-622 ISO; 75 max PSI). Wire bead. Black/Reflective Stripe.

Please note that due to its extra-thick tread, this tire runs ~2mm wider/taller than typical Schwalbe tires. As such, the ISO width printed on the sidewall is actually greater than the common size printed on the tire (example: 700c x 35mm = 37-622 ISO). To avoid confusion, we sell this tire by its common 700c measurement, not its wider ISO measurement.

The best wet weather commuting tire ever.

I've been using this tire on my fixed gear rain bike for the last 4 years. I'm on my second set and have had one flat. Yeah the tire is heavy and hard to mount the first time but the puncture resistance and traction is worth it. I even put a set on my cargo bike because I definitively don't want a flat while carrying a load. Do yourself a favor and get a set of these tires if you ride where road debris is killing your current tires.

Great commuter tire

I have rode about 200 miles with these tires so far. They are a great fit to my commuting rides. Most of my commute is on roadhighway shoulder, with a lot of debris (gravel, metallic parts, broken glass from wreck etc), typical from the Atlanta suburb roads, sometimes I need to ride on sidewalks or grass as well. I was riding 700x23 before and struggled to avoid flat tires, so I needed an extra strong tire that would fit on my road bike. Those tires are exactly this. The combination of thick resistance and low pressure (I put 5 bars), makes them very robust. This is a faster alternative to riding my moutain bike for this commute.

The downside is performance of course the grip and low pressure are not comparable to 700x23, and they are a bit rough to install (due to the thickness). But again I needed puncture resistance and the flexibility to ride on anything when safety dictates it, so all in all I give it 5 stars as it does the job suberbly.

Excellent Tire

I ride a Specialized Crosstrail hybrid. I got the bike in 2011 and by now have logged over 20,000 miles on it using these tires. I have not had one flat. I ride almost exclusively on pavement, some trails and bike lanes on main roads. These tires have performed flawlessly. I highly recommend these tires (I also use only Michelin A3 Protek Max tubes). I am 73 years old and hate getting flats (which, in years previous, have had many).

This is my go-to tire for touring. .

I have used the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tire for self-contained touring for 3 years. By rotating frontrear tires, I get 2,500-3,000 miles per pair on these tours. Never a worry about flats, and they hold tire pressure for multiple days. Good on paved roads as well as crushed limestone trails, rain or shine with great traction. Try them, you'll like them!

An absolutely amazing tire.

I have been riding on Schwalbe Marathon Supreme and Marathon Plus tires for about 8 years now. My first set of Marathon Supremes were used mostly for touring and randonneuring so I was able to get 8,000 miles on them. Then I moved from North Carolina to Washington DC so my second set of Marathon Supremes was used mostly for city riding.

I had over 5,000 miles on that set when one day I ran over a small rubber horseshoe on the trail near my home. I had just passed a park ranger on a horse and it had evidently thrown a rubber cleat. There were 3 nails sticking up on the rubber cleat and 2 of the nails penetrated my front Schwalbe. The cleat hit my fender as the front wheel rotated so I had to stop. As I started to pull it out of the tire, I hear a hissing sound so I left it in.

I was able to ride the remaining 2 miles with the cleat slapping my fender and the trail pavement all the way home. I got home just fine with plenty of air left in the tire. I could probably have gotten another 2,000 miles on those tires but I decided to install a new set of Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires I had waiting in my workshop.

I now have over 2,000 miles on the new Marathon Plus tires on my city bike and have installed a second set of Marathon Plus tires on my new touring bike. I love these tires and will not ride anything else for touring and city riding.

These tires rock!

I use these tires for my winter riding when shoulders are covered with debris and wet. They are super positive in these conditions and highly durable. Definitely on the heavy side but worth their weight in the security they provide. I have used the 25, 28 and 32 and like the 25's the best.

I have the Schwalbe marathon mondials on my ebike. I bought this tire for my Motobecane 529HT. I love them! Fast and no punctures down here in the spiny desert of New Mexico

A little hard to mount this tire, like all Schwalbe tires.

Great City commuter tire

Repeat purchase after first tire rode well for commute almost 20 mi a day.

Only one serious flat in a year when the tire ate a deck screw on the rode and punctured. Otherwise survived the steady diet of glass and other debris better than the Armadillo tires I had been using.

After a year tread was still good but sidewall was starting to tear and so had to replace it.

Fit wheel snugly. Several years ago tried Schwalbe but they were too large and blew off the rim.

Product description says from the Netherlands but actual tire wall says Indonesia if you look closely.

Solid Tire - Repeat customer 5K miles, 2 countries later

I had an older set of Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires with a slightly different tread pattern. I rode them across country. I only had 5 or 6 flat tires over 3,500 miles. These tires are highly glass resistant. Tire wire was the culprit behind most flats I had. The wider tires are great for gripping the very edge of the road - something you'll be doing often if you tour. The performance in light snow (less than 3) and ice is acceptable as long as you decrease PSI and buy a studded high quality snow tire for the front wheel.

When I wore the tires down after another 2K miles I decided to use the stock tires while commuting to and from work (about 12 miles round trip). The stock tires by Continental on my LHT did not stand up to the tire wire or glass in the street. I had one flat every two weeks due to major punctures. I decided to pay up one more time.

I purchased this updated version of the Marathon Plus and couldn't be happier. No more flats. Yes, they are heavier, but it's worth every extra gram. In the long run I have saved time and money with these tires. You will likely too!

5200 miles and still like new!

I commute 16 miles a day on these tire and roll over a lot of broken glass. I've put 5200 miles on them over the last 2 years and they show little sign of wear, and I haven't had any flats. I love the reflective rims. They were a little hard to mount the first time, as other reviewers have noted. And they weren't cheap. But they are well worth it. I still have a lot of enthusiasm for these tires!

Went from 28mm Conti that came on my Schinbdelhauer Ludwig city bike to these Schwalbes 25 mm...from 85 psi to 100...no sacrifice of comfort and with less rolling resistance. No flats yet.

Bought for puncture protection.

Smooth ride, quiet too. Bought these in 25 mm to replace the Conti 28's that came with my Schindelhauer Ludwig. Lighter and able to go increase pressure to 100...still a comfortable ride, less rolling resistance.

Maybe resistant but not puncture proof

These tires were a bit more expensive than I would usually pay, but like most of us, I hate getting flats. They were easier to mount than I expected and fit my rims well despite being wider than my last tires, but I got a flat within two weeks. I was using them in conjunction with Michelin A3 Protek Max 700c Tubes so the tire didn't go completely flat. Never found the cause and didn't have to repair or replace anything, and knock wood, I've been good since.

Great tires! Pricey but worth it

Bought a set of these tires in Walla Walla when my ancient continentals wouldn't cut it. 3,000 miles later in Portland, Maine they're still going strong! Got back home to California (by plane) and switched the front for the rear and I got many more miles left in them. I rode 700c x 28c and they were adequate with 60 pounds of gear plus my 160 lb body. Might go with wider tires next time for cushion, grip, and load benefits.

Never got a puncture flat or snakebite but I did repeatedly lose tube stems by running presta valves with my rims which were drilled for shraders. The tires are a bear to get on initially but they do break in and get easier later.

While these have excellent flat protection they do pick up glass and thorns and the glass will eventually work it's way through the flat protection and poke your tubes. So recommended that you take a moment with a pair of pliers at intervals and remove the nails, glass, wire, insults, teeth, wit, shrapnel, tire cord, and other sharp and biting debris found along side roadways.

Excellent tires and if you get them on sale, they are a steal!

Went from Astoria Oregon to Crescent City California and no flats. These tires are bullet proof and run smooth. They are a bit hard to mount on the rim for the first time, but with some patience it went well. I will definitely buy another set.

Excellent Tire Touring

I seldom write reviews but I felt it necessary for a superior product. I purchased a set of Schwalbe Marathon tires about two months ago. I must admit when the bike tech recommended these tires I was doubtful & put off by the price. I've put 300 miles on these tires and they look like the day I installed them. I see no signs of wear and the rubber nibs (even on the center of the tire) are not wearing. I ride on pavement but do encounter some debris, I haven't had any flat tires & traction is excellent in all conditions. I inflate the tires 2-3 psi less than the recommended maximum pressure of 85 psi & get a reasonably smooth & comfortable ride. If the tires are inflated to 75 psi the ride is very smooth. I can't say enough good about these tires. I would buy these tires again & again for touring & commuting. This is one great bicycle tire!
