Rock solid mix of performance and durability

We use Marathons for touring and around town errands. Rarely get punctures unless it's a huge thorn or nail. The tread gets good traction on loose stuff and wears very well. We plan to keep using these forever.

Wonderful commuter tire

Reflective sidewalls!! Solid tire for commuting with curbs, bad roads, occasional need to ride through dirt and worse. Comfortable rolling experience and confidence inspiring. Very comforting to know these are under me for rides in bitter cold when the LAST thing I want is a flat when I'm running close on time to get to the office. Can't think of anything bad about them. Mounted easy and confidently. If I EVER HAD to fix a flat, it won't be difficult. Has turned my 26 wheeled bike into my preferred commuter just so I can be on these tires

Sweet ride.

Switched out stock knobbies to these. Tires seem very durable although just tried them. I like the quality for the price, making it a very good value. I like the max psi of 100 for easier rolling.

These are the tires you want!

I have these tires on my Surly Long Haul Trucker. I have 3000 miles on them, which includes 900 miles in Iceland. I ride both pavement and dirt with no worries.

No flats, no leaks, no worries.

So far so good

I purchase two sets of these (one for a mountain bike and the other for a touring bike). Have about 100 miles on one set and 150 on another. I ride mainly on sidewalks, street, and paved paths. Where I live there are ruts, limbs, sand, and debris everywhere and a thin tire will not suffice. I like the tire because it can handle various terrain, and are suppose to be puncture resistant (so far so good). They can handle high pressure, bumps, rolling resistence is negligable, and I feel stable when cycling. They are also compliant as the ride is smooth.

I have a set of 717 Mavic Rims and XT Shimano Hubs on both bikes (both hand built) and neither have a hint of wobble, yet when riding or spinning the tire, I notice the tire is not perfectly even as it rotates. In other words, I can see how the pattern on the tire does not remain the same as the rim spins, and it appears the wheel is not true. When riding there is no hopping or bumping felt but would like a tire that looks straigt or even when spinning. Would have given five stars if this weren't the case.

I will see about durability and puncture resistance as time passes, no comment on that.
