Worry-proof riding

I've ridden coast to coast across America on Schwalbe tires, and I recently purchased this specific width of tire for a rail-trail tour on the Blue River, Chief Standing Bear, Homestead and Mopac rail-trails in NE Kansas and SE Nebraska. We had heard that there might be goatheads on a section of these trails, so I wanted the best protection for worry-free riding. I had a fabulous six-day tour out and back on these trails and not a single puncture. The tires also handled a rainy, wet day on the trail with absolutely no problem - this width of tire cut into the top wet layer of crushed limestone with fabulous handling (while my touring partner's wider tires floated a bit on top, making his bike harder to handle). Fabulous worry-free tire that's perfect for touring on rail-trails.

We installed the 26x1.75 tires on our DaVinci tandem in preparation for riding the C&O Canal. We were looking for a tire that would be good for the weight and service of a tandem on rough and uneven surfaces.

The tread is an aggressive touring type that should be good on a variety of surfaces.

We have not ridden the C&O yet, but we have been putting on some miles on rough roads and some dirt path trails with good result. The ride is smooth and stable.

Very pleased with this tire.

I have put over 300 miles on these tires with absolutely no problems. I am using them on an electric bike most on bike paths and streets. I highly recommend them to other e-bikers. Good traction and no flats, which I was getting on the bike's original equipment on the same terrain.

I bought a stromer ebike, and encountered frequent flats. 7 flats in 600 miles.

I bought these tires and set them next to my ebike and haven't had a flat since. I'm at 950 miles.

I will install them when I get my next flat. I probably just broke the magic by saying anything so that should be soon.

I understand these can be difficult to mount. There are you-tube videos

Suggest watching them.

based on physical inspection these are clearly more durable than the Schwalbe big ben balloon tires that came with bike

I bought this tire because my new electric bike has the motor in the back tire and the design of the bike has the seat almost directly over the back tire. Resulting in 3 flat rear tires in six months.

With the 45lbs weight of electric motor and my 195 weight I'm assuming it's to much for the tires that came with the bike.

It's been 4 months and no rear flats.

I bought these tires for my folding dahon bike a couple of years ago and never had a flat

I put Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires on my Surly Long Haul Trucker for a trans-America ride that I completed. I had three flats on the rear in New York and swapped the tire with a spare. I ordered another Schwalbe Marathon Plus that I used from Colorado to Washington state with no flats. I think that the Schwalbe tire that I replaced was compromised with some culprit inside that I could never find. My conclusion. The Schwalbe Marathon Plus is a good tire but not puncture proof.

These tires feel incredible. You can tell right away that these are a premium tire even if it comes at a premium price. They roll much smoother than any other tire I've used on my commuter bike and after a few hundred miles they show no signs of wear. I can now ride with confidence that I will be safe from punctures and that alone is worth the extra money I spent buying these tires.

I commute year round, in the Portland OR area. I have logged over 4000 miles in 10 months. Even rode 3 miles on a flat, slayed the tube, but the tire is still performing. Schwalbe Marathon Plus are the best tires You get what you pay for.

I use this and its 20 version on my bullitt cargo bike. When you are delivering 300 pounds of cargo on unforgiving tarmac, the last thing you need is a flat. These arent 100% full proof, but I struggle to think of any time these tires let me down. Rolling resistance is low and mileage is high.

I have used these tires for several years both for regular riding and touring. Great tires for touring both because of the resistance to flats and the load carrying capacity on the back of my recumbent.

I put two Marathon plus 1.75 inch tires on my recumbent tandem for a cross country bike trip (Newport Beach, CA to Yorktown, VA). Total vehicle weight (including riders) was about 450 lbs. These tires held up very well. We logged hundreds of miles on the expressway shoulders out west. I had to weave in and out of the shredded tires frequently. Only two punctures the whole 3400 miles. I pulled a dozen wires out that didn't cause flats. No problems with goat head thorns when in New Mexico. On some occasions the debris, gravel and sand on the expressway shoulder was so thick the tires weren't touching the pavement. These wide and durable tires just kept on going. There are many miles left in these tires.
