I have these tires on the bike that I use for commuting to work. One third of the commute is on hard pack dirt trail through wooded forest preserve and these tires have performed well in terms of grip and durability. They also ride quite smoothly on the pavement - not like the 700c x 23 tires on my road bike, but still nice. Tread offers decent water shedding in the wet. I would buy these again.

This tire is hands down that best tire for commuting. My tire size is 700c x 47mm on a 29er MTB. I don't worry about road debris, holes or gravel. I ride them at 50psi for a more comfy ride and they corner well. It's a nice wide tire with no show of any wear.

Well made, sturdy, comfortable, and daily fast. Bought them for a 2500 mile tour but using them here in Key West where the road surface is terrible. They are holding up well to the punishment of the coral stone. Nice ride.

I normally use Michelin or Continental tires and tubes, but they were not immediately available when I needed them. So, I ordered Schwalbe tires which I had heard of for a long time, but never tried. They�re not the lowest-priced ones, but they�re reasonable. So far they are meeting all my expectations, and I hope that they will continue to do so.

Toyota Corolla tires

I have these mounted on a pretty nice older touring bicycle that I use as a commuter. The wheels have been replaced with modern mid-range wheelsets. I had been using a different model of Schwalbe tires until recently so I can't comment on long term reliability yet. Size is 700cx35

Tires seem well made with no obvious defects and were round. I had no problems mounting them without tools. I have read the reviews and I realise that tons of people have had problems getting these on. Maybe Schwalbe fixed the problem and over compensated? I was actually worried whether these were seating properly.

These are the Toyota Corolla of bicycle tires. Not especially nice. Definitely not sexy (see reflective strip sidewall). Cheapish, but not actually cheap.

So far almost 500 miles on these tires and they've been great. Previous tires were getting flats on a regular basis due to shards of shale. These just keep rolling on. I did a tough ride on an old railroad road bed which had about ten miles of the old coarse rail ballast still exposed with some fines to fill it in. That was ten miles of possible pinch flats, punctures, and kicking my tires off track. I was worried about punctures but the Schwalbe's laughed it off. I'm sold.

I don't really have any complaints. I have the 38mm width. I've rolled through some sketchy areas (broken glass, potholes, etc) for over 1000 miles with no flats yet! It feels fast enough for touring/adventure rides.

Just put a pair of 700x35s on my Jamis Bosanova and it's like having a brand new bike. The tires were easy to get on the rims though 35mm was really pushing the fender clearance - a very tight fit. I only wish I had purchased these thousands of miles ago, the ride is so smooth and comfortable now having ditched the harsh Vittoria stock tires.

On my first trip across the country I had 20 flat tires, on the second trip I put Schwalbe marathon plus tires on. I ended up with 3800 miles without a single flat tire, and I still got some more miles on them after I got back. My touring bike weighs 30 pounds, I was carrying about 50 pounds of gear, and I weigh about 200 pounds so they were pretty well loaded down. That was about ten years ago and I have been using Schwalbe tires every since.

New favorite commuter tire

I have been using gator skins for probably a decade. It seems like the last couple years the quality of them were slipping a bit. I started getting a lot more flats during my 10-mile each way commute. I used to go entire years without flats and suddenly it was oncemonth. I decided to start looking around for a new commuter tire and gave these marathons a try. I've had them for a couple months now and no flats so far. I'm very happy with the handling and grip as well. The traction is definitely better than the contis and the rolling resistance doesn't seem much more than the 28mm gatorskins I was using. I also tried the marathon plus. Those are considerably heavier and have greater rolling resistance than the regular marathons. For the price, puncture resistance, and weight savings I have definitely found a new favorite commuter tire. Also, that super-bright reflective band on the sidewall gives motorists no excuse for not seeing you from the side at night, which is a huge bonus for people like me who ride to work before the sun comes up.

The only negative thing I have to say about these tires is that they are extremely difficult to mount especially the first time. It took several tries to get the bead to seat properly so I didn't have a thud-thud-thud due to the tire not being concentric with the wheel.

Excellent tires but difficult to get on and off

The tires were excellent. The ordering process was easy and hassle free. Shipping was right on time.

My only gripe was that the tires were very difficult to get on and off the rims even while using talc. I asked my LBS for some advice and they sold me a tire bead jack and it worked perfectly. The tires are great with much increased traction and responsiveness. They are a few grams heavier than my old racing tires, but the increase in performance far outweighs the difference.

I have been riding these tires for a year now and have not had a flat. I use them on the bike paths in town where we have a lot of broken glass. Also use them on a bike i set up to ride on gravel. If you don't like flats when you would rather be riding I recommend you give these tires a try.

The tire compound on this just feels tougher and better manufactured than any other tire. Frankly any other tire feels flimsy and cheap. They feel good on forest paths also but loose rocks have a hard time. Combined with great cust service from BT direct, these are an excellent buy. Don't forget tire levers to put them on.
