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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

These tires seem quite solid.

Being a roadie in Colorado with rough roads, I knew I needed a more substantial tire over the 700cx23 tires that I had used in California. I got these in 700cx25, which was the biggest I could go, without rubbing against the brakes. I have to keep them a little under 100Lbs. pressure or it makes for a ride that hurts my arms, but that seems to work just fine. I like the tread on them, as riding in the rain should be stable with good traction. A bit pricey,but I have heard that Schwalbe is a higher priced tire. I think that all in all, it's a good tire for the price. I have not ridden enough on these tires yet, to give a solid revue, but I am confident that they will hold up to their reputation.

Excellent commuter tire

I've been using these tires to commute 34 milesday year around for the past 10 years. They're excellent tires and I have only had a flat after several years of wear on a tire. Once they are this worn I replace them after the first flat. I like the fact that you can pump them over 100 psi. They are very hard to mount the first time, but if you get them warm first (in the sun, heater closet, etc.) that will help a lot. Not a problem to remount after they've been ridden a while. Not cheap, but highly recommended so that you don't have to change flats on your commute.

Solid & highly reliable

Per recommendations I read by bike tourers online, shortly after buying my touring bike I swapped out the rear tire in favor of this Schwabe Marathon. I left the original front tire on for the moment.

Since, I've had ongoing problems with the front tire a series of flats due to thorns on my first tour ride that forced me to change tubes & very carefully inspect the tire multiple times before that was resolved. Since, the front tire looses air pressure over several days tho I cannot find any leak in the tube.

In contrast to all that hassle, my Schwabe rear tire has had NO issues whatsoever. It survived the thorns unscathed, and tire pressure remains stable. They are indeed highly reliable as promised.

If I were to go touring, I would put a Schwabe on both wheels. For now, just trying to wear out the front over time.

Perfect choice

I bought this tire to replace the dirt tires on my Trek 8.5 DS. My daily ride is 13 miles and involves rough Connecticut rural roads with 2 miles of dirt road thrown in for good measure. The tires have performed flawlessly on all surfaces, I cant imagine a tire performing better. Next week I tackle the Great Allegany Passage and C&O canal. I have no concern regarding theses tires.

Great tires, my second set of Schwalbe Marathons

Mounted a set of these on my and my wife's hard tail 29ers since we use them mostly on the road as our commuter bikes and 'gravel grinders' on weekends. Wanted tires that had good puncture resistance and wear qualities. Previously had a pair of Schwalbe Marathons on both bikes and wore them down to the inner puncture resistant layer so we've had good experience with them.

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!

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.

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.

Great tire if you do not want flats

I was tired of flats and was getting sidewall blowouts with Gator Skins. We were planning an 800 mile trip on the coast from Washington back to the Bay Area. I needed a puncture proof tire. My research turned up the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires. I bought them knowing they were difficult to install. And they were, but because they are almost bullet proof they are very stiff. It took a couple of attempts to seat the tube where it would not be pinched by the sidewalls. A good technique is to get them on the wheel and closely inspect the tire to insure it does not pinch the tube. This tire is for those who do not want flats.

Great commuting tire

I commute daily to work, about 13miles each way.

My route is over a combination of paved trails, single track and a few creek crossings.

My old kendas failed, and purchased these schwalbe.

Thus far, excellent tire for all weather riding over mixed terrain. Good grip without excessive rolling resistance.

Bit of challenge putting them on (as described in previous reviews) but possible without leves.

Excellent purchase, good ROI.

easy mounting

I can't stand peeling the skin off my thumbs trying to mount difficult tires without tools so I was a little concerned reading through other peoples reviews that these tires would be difficult to mount. My experience was completely different. These were some of the easiest mounting tires I've ever used (and I go through a lot of tires and wheels). I mounted them up on some heavy duty touring wheels and since weight obviously was giving way to reliability I used a super thick slime filled tube. I'll wrote down the date I mounted them so I can revel in the acievement of running a tire 'til the tread is gone without ever getting a single flat. That's the confidence I have in these tires. Confidence isn't always something you can purchase. Thanks Schwalbe! Thanks Biketiresdirect!
