Nice tires on and off pavement

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I purchased these tires as an exact replacement set - the prior pair have over 4K miles and counting on a combination of hard surface and gravel trails without a single puncture. I enjoy the smooth ride, reliability, and confidence to hold a line.

The Perfect Commuter Tire

I have these on my Trek 7.3fx bike that I use daily to commute to work. I ride over potholes, gravel and all sorts of miscellaneous junk and have NEVER had a flat. After 2,200 miles there is almost no visible wear. I have a level of trust in these tires I never before thought possible.

In addition to commuting, I put in longer rides some evenings and most weekends and will say these tires also roll pretty easy. They would not be my first choice for fast club rides, but they are not really meant to be a racing or training tire. They are my first choice for 50 and 100 mile charity rides. They will not let you down.

I have been commuting on Schwalbe Marathons since 2012 and have had two punctures during that time. They are a little heavy, however, the trade off with a puncture free commute is worth it. During that time I also did a 1,000 mile tour with no punctures.

I use these to ride on asphalt and sidewalks with occasional gravel. They don't have great traction in mud, but that's to be expected with the tread design when pumped up to the higher pressure rating. Overall, seem good for touring with roads and paved trail. I've only ridden 150mi on them, but absolutely no complaints so far.

I bought these tires to put on a gravel bike I built. I want to start by saying these tires have a lot going for them. They roll incredibly well for 32MM tires. I have ridden them on a variety of surfaces and they hook up great. Everything from asphalt, to grass, to gravel, to boulder strewn jeep trails, to hard pack dirt. They took a pounding over about 500 miles during my 3 week vacation in the Colorado Rockies and they show no wear, cuts or abrasions. The critical flaw is that the front tire is out of round. I mounted them before I went on my vacation and rode them for about 100 miles on the paths around New Orleans. The front tire has a very pronounced thump, thump, thump as it rotates. I put the bike in my stand, spun the tire and lowered a straight edge to the tire. That really made the bad spot stand out. There would be plenty of clearance throughout most of the tire's rotation then about an inch of the tire would rub. Had the tire not been defective, I would have given 5 stars.

I have ridden many tires in the past few years that I have picked up on cycling. None of them have been as quick rolling, comfortable, or trustworthy as these 700x35 Marathons. I took them out on a nasty ride here near Woodland Park, Colorado. Pavement, cracked pavement, a little chipseal, gravel, pea gravel, mud, snow, rocks, a climb with 1700 feet gain in 4 miles, washboard, only to be surprised that these tires handled everything with confidence and speed. Despite the weight and bulk in these tires, they are fast. I even scored a new record on a 400 foot climb that I have ridden for nearly 2 years. Don't overthink it guys and gals, get this tire if your bicycle has the clearance!
