Top Features of the Schwalbe Marathon Plus Smartguard City Tyre 2013
- Smartguard rubber layer gives ultimate puncture protection
- No increase to rolling resistance
- Even drawing pin proof!
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
The newly developed puncture protection found in the Marathon Plus means punctures are just a distant memory. The SmartGuard‚ layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints.
Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer! The SmartGuard belt does not increase rolling resistance. The Marathon Plus rolls as easily as a tyre without protection.
About City Tyres
These tyres are designed to meet the rigours of city/trail riding and will fit Hybrid styled bikes, they are wider than a road race tyre to offer a larger contact area with the road and will provide more comfort. Wider tyres are less prone to punctures and will provide more grip. Within this range we offer semi slick or knobbly tyres, the semi slick tyres will be ideal for road use and the knobbly style will provide more grip for light trail use or loose surfaces such as gravel.
About the Schwalbe brand
For over 70 years Schwalbe have dominated the two wheeled tyre industry in Germany and Europe, being voted best MTB tyre brand in Germany for the past two years. From the very early beginnings where the company founder, Earnest-Wilhelm Bohle capitalised on the developing cycle industry, to the ultra modern distribution facility near Cologne, Schwalbe have continued to design and manufacture some of the finest bicycle tyres available. Schwalbe's success is due in part to the effort it makes in product development from lab tests at the manufacturing facility to the hardest proving grounds of all, professional cycle racing. 'Team Gerolsteiner' achieved a very creditable 7th place overall in the 2004 Tour de France and the unique performance of team captain Davide Rebellin winning three major classic races back to back using Schwalbe tyre. Other notable succeses include Normann Stadler winning the infamous Ironman triathlon in Hawaii, riding Schwalbe Stelvio tyres.

Magazine reviews for Schwalbe Marathon Plus Smartguard City Tyre 2013
Review from Cycling Plus
Thanks to its thick layer of springy sub-tread rubber - called SmartGuard -the Marathon Plus is virtually immune to through-the-tread punctures...even drawing pins won't penetrate. Apart from the slight speed loss, the only real negative is the dificulty in fitting them: I needed a helper and a pair of Pedro's Milk Levers. Still, they're so unlikely to puncture that this isn't a job you'll do very often.
Almost impregnable. Heavy and hard to fit, but faster than you'd think.
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Quantity up to 2 if you want a pair and double the price ....
although buy one get one free would be an idea i would favour. :)
Smaller diameter ones will be gradually lighter, and thus probably better handling, but less comfy as they provide less of an air cushion.
Your wheel rims might tell you the recommended max and min tyre diameters allowed: if so it's best to obey. That said, I've been running oversized Marathons on my Kona Sutra for about 9000miles with no apparent ill-effects.
I hope that helps.
