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.

A great tire for reliably uneventful rides.

This is the only tire Ive used for the past decade. I commute by bike 3-4 days a week (first to school, now to my big boy job), and in all the time Ive used these tires Ive only had 2 flats. As long as that ratio holds up, I think Ill keep using them the rest of my life.

Traction is fine. I have wiped out a handful of times in wet weather when I was making stupid turns, but other than not saving me from myself these have performed very well.

best puncture resistance available

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.

perfect tires for me

I purchased the Schwalbe Marathon Plus (700 x 32c) to put on my Trek 7.3. I am a recreational rider, and not a hard core road biker. I like riding 10 to 20 miles per session. These tires are just what I was looking for and match my style of riding (some paved trails, some gravel trails, some streets). They ride great and I don't feel any difference in the rolling resistance, which was a mild concern. The tires were a little more difficult to install, but you just need to get one side on the rim, move it down into the rim and get the other side on. I was able to do this without levers. I highly recommend these tires, especially if weight is not a super high priority, they are a little heavier. And, Bike Tires Direct service was great. The tires shipped the same day I ordered and arrived a day early!! Thank you Bike Tires Direct.

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.

Great Tire

The Marathon is a great tire. I use it primarily for commuting approximately 20 miles per day. I have tried various other tires, Vittoria, Continental etc. and was always less than pleased with the ride and puncture resistance. I have about 1,000 miles on the 700x35's. So far no puncture issues and the tire rolls very smooth. This tire is not inexpensive when compared to others, but based on my experience thus far it is worth the extra dollars.

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.

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.

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.

No flats since install, appreciate the reflective sidewall

Installed these on my Class 3 Ebike after 3 flats in first 500 miles with OEM tires. I've now put 1000 miles on the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires with no issues. My riding is split between road shoulders and bicycle trails. They ride comfortably and I appreciate the reflective sidewalls for riding after sunset.

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!

Miserable ride quality and poor construction leading to flats (20 version)

Set 1

I had them on my 20 wheeled folding travel bike. I hated the ride because they were stiff and heavy. This bike goes in luggage, so weight matters. I gave them away and got Conti's touring tire with 2mm vs 5mm puncture belt. I've had a flat or two, but it's actually worth it

Set 2

My wife has had them on her folding commuter bike. I don't know how many miles, but the tread is barely worn, and there is a problem with the casing. Every 5mm or so there is an extra heavy thread (wire?) in the woven carcass. These threads have worked their way through the layer of rubber on the inside of the sidewalls and are now chafing against the tube. A new tube gets a series of slits cut by the threads. In about a week you get a flat. This is not how tires are supposed to wear out. We will be contacting Schwalbe with a claim and see how it goes. Unfortunately I don't remember where she got this set.

I like Schwalbe's high-end tires, but these are not up to normal standards.

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.

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.
