Marathon Plus Tyres

Best selling model

As one of their best-selling products in their line-up, the Marathon Plus Tyres are the go-to tyres for people who want something that offers a high level of puncture resistance and durability.

Weighing at around 900 grams, it’s a bit heavier than the regular Marathon tyres, and with its total thickness of around 9.0mm, it’s definitely one of the thicker tyres out there.So what makes it so popular among their clients?

With that said, let’s take a closer look at this tyre and see what makes it so popular among consumers.

A higher level of puncture resistance

A flat tyre is no fun for anyone, especially if you’re in the middle of nowhere. Because of this, Schwalbe ensured that their Marathon Plus tyres are highly resistant to puncturing using a 67 TPI casing with their Endurance compound.

This results in a layer that’s 5mm thicker than the original Marathon tyres, something which Schwalbe calls “SmartGuard.” This allows the tyres to resist punctures, ensuring a safe ride and long-lasting tyres for their clients.

ROLLING RESISTANCE. The patented, 5 mm thick SmartGuard layer, when compared to all generic products, has a significant advantage in rolling resistance.

RECYCLING. Also in the SmartGuard, we use a proportion of recycled rubber from old latex products.

Higher rolling resistance

Of course, Schwalbe sacrificed some features when they emphasized these tyres’ puncture resistance over rolling resistance. Due to its thicker and heavier nature, these tyres offer higher rolling resistance, making manoeuvring them a bit more difficult than with thinner tyres. As such, you need to put in more effort when navigating with these tyres.

Increased durability

Due to its puncture-resistance and thicker body, Marathon Plus tyres offer a higher level of durability that allows it to withstand the wear and tear of constant use and even heavy-duty use. Because of this, it’s a popular tyre for touring and e-bikes.

Enhanced versatility and stability

Because of its highly durable and thicker construction, Marathon Plus tyres can withstand being used on various terrains, making them versatile than others. This means you’ll enjoy greater stability and comfort during rides, whether it’s on city streets or bumpy country roads.

Final Thoughts

Despite its higher level of rolling resistance, the Marathon Plus tyres are still ideal if you’re looking for something that’s long-lasting, durable, and can withstand the wear and tear of constant use.

Although it’s a bit heavier and thicker than usual tyres, these allow them to provide increased versatility as well and even stability and overall comfort.
