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.

Great after one ride

I bought 32 mm Schwalbe Marathon Plus to replace the 28's (a Bontrager and a Continental) on my Trek Pilot. Before the purchase I read many reviews and knew the sobering advice that these were hard to mount, especially on tubeless-ready rims. My Trek has tubeless-ready Ultegra 6700 rims. Before mounting the Schwalbe's, I watched a few YouTube videos of the mounting procedure for that tire. Especially helpful was the strategy of working the second side of the tire halfway onto the rim and then securing it with zip ties at 3 and 9 o'clock. Installation was then easy without use of any other tools. I would not say that the tire is terribly tight. The difficulty is that the sidewalls are so stiff that getting the second side on the rim is like wrestling a live snake. When I worked one section on, the section I let go of hopped off. The zip ties were a terrific solution. There was no problem getting the tube tucked safely inside. I was almost disappointed that I didn't have to puff and strain to complete the installation. The trick is mental, not physical.

I am carrying the zip ties with my spare inner tube. I used to carry 2 spare tubes, so some weight saved there.

On the road, 32 miles, the Marathon Plus handled lighter than I expected, though obviously I am giving up something from the 28's. They didn't wobble at all after going up to full pressure, and rode well on asphalt at 70 PSI. For once I didn't bother to avoid the broken glass that I knew was there.

I probably should wait to review the tire, but I wanted to pass on the mounting information while it was fresh in my mind. I expect thousands of miles with no flats. No worries.

I won't buy any other tire for commuting. I have never flatted in these, period. I ride all year long in the Midwest. The tread also lasts a long time. Fantastic tire.

Amazingly tough tire

A pair of the 700x38mm came on my Salsa Marrakesh that I bought in 2016 as an incentive to get back on a bike after a hip replacement at age 75. Now, 3 years later, I just flipped past 13,000 miles and the tires still have some tread depth. I only had one flat, from a piece of wire that entered through the sidewall. I ride mostly in urban Seattle where broken glass sparkles on the streets along with scattered drywall screws, hose clamps and other debris. The Marathons take it all in stride.

Best tire if you want to forget how to fix flat tires

Great value tire, you will not be disappointed. Over 2000 miles on my first set. Just had to rotate tires as rear tire tread was wearing down, so probably a few thousand more miles to go. If you catch them on sale, an even bigger value. Nothing but praise for these tires.

I no longer need to keep buying tubes like with previous brand tires, carrying the same tube for over five years now. If you want to become rusty on changing tubes, this tire is a must. I bought a second set of slightly narrower tires, but since I have had no issues, I will likely wait until my rear tread wears before switching them out.

The profile is a little larger than typical 700 tires, so you will likely need to adjust odometer settings for accurate distance readings.

Very durable tires... Love them.

I've ben buying these tires for years. I don't want to get flats, so I also add a plastic strip between the street and tube and the tires wear out before I get a flat. I get about 4K miles on a tire...

Not as puncture resistant as everyone says...

Ive put 200 miles on these in Colorado.. daily commute of 40 miles. Ive already had two flats with these. Neither have entered from the top of the tire. Both have entered closer to the side wall likely during hard cornering. We have a lot of thorny type brush around so it is what it is. Ive run over plenty of glass with no issues so far. Flats tend to be sheer luck it feels like. The tires themselves are a pain to get on and off my 700x25 rims. I have to use the tire removers to be the tires back on which risks breaking the tube every time. Continentals are a lot easier to get on and off if you have issues with your rims.

Harsh riding

I bought these for my ebike to get a smoother ride. But the sidewalls must be stiff because the ride is much harsher than the continental gatorskin 32s i replaced.

Great smooth riding tire!

These Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires exceeded our expectations! They ride smoothly with good traction. They were easy to install. We replaced the tubes as well with Schwalbe tubes and everything was easy to install. One minor note - The tires were slightly larger and the rear tire rubbed against an installed rack. Be careful if your existing tires currently have little clearance! Otherwise, we are extremely satisfied!

Great Tires

I use these for commuting and rail trail riding. They are great tires. I have about 500 miles on them now and they show little if any wear. I ride about 80 or more miles a week and these are my tire of choice due to there durability and lower rolling resistance.

I recently did 151 miles in 3 days on the Sparta 400 series of trails and these did well, they are not quite as good as other tires in soft ground and really not made for sandy spots but I was actually pleasantly surprised how well they handled that rail trail over all.

These tires corner very well, very good grip on asphalt.

One thing I will mention, these are not the tires I will use for winter, I use the Schwalbe GT 365's for that. I will also use the GT 365's if I am going to ride mostly soft or a little more technical terrain.

As an over all commuter or hard pack tire these are absolutely awesome. Buy them and ride them with confidence.

Never any problems

I use these daily for commuting around New York City. Around 12 miles each day, 5 days a week for the past 6 months. On top of that, I used these for a two week, 700 mile tour around New England. I did not get a single flat or any problems in my entire experience with these tires. I generally keep it between 80-85 psi and they are bombproof. I kinda have no reason to try any other tires right now. 35mm on my Bianchi San Jose.

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.

Suits me!

I started riding about 15 years ago when I was 60 years old. I ride 5 days a week, 20 milesride. I really hate flat tires, they are a huge inconvenience. So, I get the best flat preventative combination of tire and tube I can find. I ride a hybrid and rarely get a flat (I think I've had 3 flats in the last six years, plus, I live in Florida and ride year round). I've been using this tire exclusively for the last 7 or 8 years and am sold on it.

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.

I use these tires on my touring bike. I just rode 1000 miles and very little wear is noticeable. I didnt suffer a flat from the wires from blown truck tires and there was a lot on the road shoulder. Long wearing and very puncture resistant.

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!

best commuting tire for the worst commute

I live, commute and train in the Boston Area, I'm not joking when I say my commute is almost entirely pot holes and broken glass (3 miles) and I have about 5 miles of that to get out of the city to get to decent training roads. The Schwalbe's have never let me down. I average about 1400 commuting miles each year and I seriously have NEVER had a single puncture with these tires until they start to get old and dry and that usually takes about 3-4 years. I commute every single day, rain, snow or terrorists since 1991 and these are the by far the best tires I've ever ridden. my only complaint is that they run big The 700x25 doesnt even come close to fitting on my road bike. I rated them a 5 on the steal scale because even though they are expensive they reliably last along time.
