You have full control on icy roads with the Marathon Winter Plus. Even in tight bends and under violent braking everythign remains under control. For best possible puncture protection, it now comes with a SmartGuard layer. The spikes work best on ice when running at minimum pressure, while at maximum pressure the tires can be ridden on ice-free roads with minimal road noise.

Excellent Winter Commuter Tire

I commute 16 miles to work daily. I purchased these tires with the hope of having better tractionsafer handling in the icy Pittsburgh winters. I purchased a set, so I've mounted these tires front and rear. Pittsburgh had moderate snow fall last week, with temperatures dipping into the teens. The roads I travel typically freeze because of water run-off from the surrounding hills and I travel over several bridges, which are notorious for icing over. This is my first winter with these tires and I am completely impressed. The tires roll reasonably well on dry roads (for a studded snow tire), but the stability, traction, and handling on ice is phenomenal! As I said earlier, I cross many icy bridges on my commute and my bike did not slide an ounce. In addition, these tires handle very while turning on ice due to the studs on the edge of the tire. One word of caution, these studs are extremely sharp! Please use caution when mounting these tires, as I've cut myself a few times. These tires ride comfortably and are not harsh on rough roads. You won't be disappointed with these tires.

Schwalbe Marathon Winter Plus are very effective and efficient for winter riding.

I had been riding with Nokian Hakkpeliitta studded tires (2 years) that felt like riding in sand. They were so slow due to the rubber compound and the tall tread blocks. Then I switched to the Schwalbe Marathon Winter Plus tires and am much happier. I typically install my winter tires around Thanksgiving and take them off at the end of April. As a daily year-round commuter, most winter days I'm riding on dry ground and don't need studs. When I run these tires at 60psi the studs barely make contact and the tire almost feel like summer road tires on my mountain bike. When snow and ice hit here in Colorado I lower the pressure to 35-40psi and the studs keep me upright. So happy I found these tires!
