Great results for my mountain bike for road/trail

Lower drag (gained 1 mph) compared to knobbies, and one of only few tires that fit on my existing rims. Worked well for driving on roads and packed gravel for a cross-country trek over the pass. Great for commuting to work as well.

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.

My first choice for my ebike was a Continental Contact Plus Tire which wasn�t available. I decided I would order a Schwalbe Marathon. I am very satisfied with this tire and would order it again.

I have used this product for many years for commuting, regular riding, and touring. It is very sturdy and has very significantly reduced flats. The time that it saves me for not having to fix flats is great. This is my tire of choice. I recommend it for regular riding, commuting, and touring.

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.

Gator skin tires feels great to ride and not worry about flat tires. Spend a little extra money and never look back well worth the investment.

I use the Schwalbe Marathon Plus on my commute-utility bike. I ride it between 5,000 and 6,000 miles per year. This tire is the best I've found after experimenting for years. High Mileage. High Flat Resistance. Reasonable Price. Minimal weight penalty. An all-around great product. (Note Additionally, I run a double dose of Green Slime in each tube. I'd rather get a tiny bit more exercise by using heavier tires and tubes than deal with a flat when I'm in a hurry to get to where I'm going.)

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
