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 47mm (47-622 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.

Difficult to mount on rims ... better ride than the Vitoria tires previously mounted

Took 20 minutes to mount front rim ... 45 minutes to mount rear rim ... probably less flex on rear rim due to sprocketlarger axel. Watched several U-tube videos that gave tips for mounting this tough tire. Only have 200 - 300 miles on tires ... no issues so far. Recommended by a couple seasoned cyclis as a durable tire with few if any flats. Very satisfied so far ...

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).

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.

Big, comfy, and world class durability

Got these on sale and I love them. An amazing deal. Schwalbe marathons are the gold-standard for touring and commuting. I like them because they have almost eliminated puncture flats from my commute routine. I will typically get about 12,000 miles on them before I buy another set. Highly recommend.

The name is fitting, these go forever!

I happened to get a flat tire on the day these were the deal of the day and was excited that I basically got them for half off! Thanks BTD! As for the tires, I've had no issues or flats since putting these on my bike. I do about 20 miles a day on these.

Sturdy Tire feels invincible.

Bought tire based on recommendation of 2 friends who have been using this tire for years. These are much sturdier than the Bontrager tires that came with my Trek hybrid, but no negative feel for this heavier tire. It was a little challenge to mount these, I had to use metal tire levers rather than the plastic ones. No flats for the first 500 miles. I had 4 flats last summer on the Bontragers on the roads in Delaware. Price is worth the peace of mind I now have with these. Cannot comment on tire life yet.

Had defective bead

Purchased 2 tires hoping to have flat free rides for the life of the tires. One had a bad bead and wouldn't stay seated on the rim. Had to replace the tire with a continental gator skin as the local bike shop didn't stock the schwalbe tires. Biketiresdirect handled the issue flawlessly by providing a credit for the cost of the tire once their people were able to confirm the issue.

Great tire, great and quick service with an actual human being to help me get what I needed!

I use a 45 MM tire for cross country cycling which is hard to find in any brand! It took only five minutes to get my order together and a few days to get possession of it and get me on the road!

These seem heavy in the package but they handles like a much lighter tire. Super puncture resistance!

I use these on a gravel bike converted to a touring bike with minimal off-road riding. These keep the goatheads at bay! Seemed heavy in the package and are a little hard to get on but they ride smooth and fast. Liked them so much a bought a second set for my son's city bike.

We use these tires on our Tandem and I can't remember the last time we had a flat. If you want a tire that you can set and forget these are it.

Solid and swift

These tires were a bit hard to get on the first time but worth it. They give a nice plush ride with out fealing squishy. So fare they are bomb proof and they extra weight in a non issue when you have a loaded ride. They handle well in water and debris too.

Great Puncture Resistance, Kind Of Heavy

I have Marathon Plus' on three of my bikes, and they have reduced the amount of flats considerably. They are really good tires in the rain too, only real draw back is they're a little heavy. I guess you have to accept the little extra weight to offset the puncture protection, but for where I ride it's worth it.

Bullet Proof Tires

I'm not sure they are the best rolling tires, but when it comes to goat head proof tires, these are the best. Because they are wire bead and thick rubber tires, they are a little less forgiving on tight fitting wheels. On some wheels they have been easy to install, where on an Axis 1.0 (specialized) they were a challenge. Its best described as a wrestling match with three tire spoons.

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!
