Ride off into the sunset and beyond.

A new tread pattern updates the incredibly flat resistant Marathon Plus, which continues to be the go-to for touring, commuting and recreational use. Features include the newly-developed Smart Guard puncture barrier, a belt made of a special flexible rubber that is especially resistant to thorns and shards. The outer rubber is extremely hard wearing and features a grooved tread for traction on dirt and gravel roads. The Marathon Plus also has a reflective stripe on the sidewall for enhanced visibility.

This version of the Marathon Plus is available in 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO; 115 Max PSI), 700c x 28mm (28-622 ISO; 100 Max PSI), 700c x 32mm (32-622 ISO; 95 Max PSI), 700c x 35mm (37-622 ISO; 85 max. PSI), 700c x 38mm (40-622 ISO; 85 max. PSI), and 700c x 47mm (47-622 ISO; 75 max PSI). Wire bead. Black/Reflective Stripe.

Please note that due to its extra-thick tread, this tire runs ~2mm wider/taller than typical Schwalbe tires. As such, the ISO width printed on the sidewall is actually greater than the common size printed on the tire (example: 700c x 35mm = 37-622 ISO). To avoid confusion, we sell this tire by its common 700c measurement, not its wider ISO measurement.

Harder riding and tough to mount tire
rating
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

This tire rides harder than previous Cont. Gatorskins and was tough to mount because of the very stiff side walls. I dread the possibility of trying to change a flat on the road but maybe the tire will be softer with use. But no flats should occur, right?

I bought these to replace my knobby stock tires that came on my Giant Roam hybrid bike, hoping they'd make commuting a bit easier.

Really impressed with the quality, very durable feeling rubber that should last for years and many miles.

They weren't that difficult to get on, and definitely improved my ride.

The tread is nice and deep-grooved for the rain, but I haven't been out much yet in bad weather to put to the test.

Definitely recommend these!

I ride two bikes throughout the year...a Road Bike and a Hybrid which is the bike these are installed on. Weather permitting, I will generally ride 25-30 miles three times a week. Puncture resistance is the most important thing to me. Although I've only put a couple hundred miles on them, I am very happy so far. I like the way they handle and based on reviews, I should be happy with their puncture resistance qualities. I also installed puncture resistant tubes for added protection. Let's not forget their looks. Very sharp!

Durable Tires No Flats after 1,500 Miles
rating
by Babarhachi
Cycling Enthusiast
Alameda, CA

This is my second pair of Schwalbe Marathon Plus for a second bike. The first pair are on a Salsa Fargo which were used on a trip down the Pacific Coast from Vancouver to San Diego. BTW, we carried 6lbs of gear on the front forks and 10lb panniers in the rear. We rode 1,500 miles without any flats and is no visible wear and tare on the tires. They are grippy in the rain and on cornering descents. They roll nicely on packed dirt roads (fire roads) but a little slippery over wet rocks. These tires are certainly durable and I was amazed that we did not get any flats on the entire trip. Be aware that the tires are very difficult to put on a wheel and they are heavy (possibly due to the thickness of the tire). Perhaps once stretched out they will be less difficult to remove. I would recommend these tires for touring and commuting.

Review for Schwalbe 2013 Marathon Plus 700c
5 of 5 customers found this review helpful.

I've been riding Schwalbe marathon plus 700 x 28 on my steel cross commuter bike for 6 years. 22 miles round trip on pavement, year round. Perfect product not a single puncture flat and still commuting one original tire - flattened off on the top and lots of nicks in it but plenty of tread and still no flats...can't bring myself to change it out with such good performance still. I really apprpeciate these tires.

I've been using the Schwalbe Marathon Greenguard tires on my XC bike that I use for commuting and have never had any flats or other issues. When it came time to purchase tires for my son's bike for similar usage, I went with the Marathon Plus tires as I believe that they offer even better puncture protection with a similar tire tread.

I love the Schwalbe tires - use them exclusively for my fifteen mile daily commute, and refer my friends to them exclusively for a great, consistent tire. I have witnessed a finish nail hitting the Green Guard protection and veering out the sidewall - all without losing air.

This is buying assurance of no flat. The rolling resistance is the trade-off, based on my 2000 miles of experience between the Marathon Plus and the Supreme (better rolling for sure).

This review may be premature, so my mind could easily change in 6 months... So far I have around 500 angry street miles on the tires. This means they have punished by glass, metal, nails you think it theyve traveled over it. And, I havent had a single flat! Not even a nick or cut on the tires. I really couldnt be more impressed by the lack of wear and bulletproof build. When rolling, they arent a super speed demon on the trails, but I dont feel like they are costing me more energy or resistance either, kind of a middle of the pack roller, which is pretty good considering how puncture resistant they are. I ridden through snow, hail, ice, gravel, mud, and rain with these tires and so far I have been impressed by how they navigate the more extreme terrains. But my only mark against the tires is how they turn at higher speeds. Maybe it the heavy steel bike with the fully loaded front panniers, but lets just say it can be dicey at best. Even with that said, I still really like these tires and would definitely buy them again. Well only if they reach 3,000 miles, hoping for 5,000...

Great for winter riding, on our country roads in Ohio they mix fine limestone with salt to spread on snowy roads. These limestone are super sharp, thanks to the puncture resistance I have yet to have a flat. They do have enough rolling resistance that I will be installing smooth tires for the summer.

This tire has been at the top of its game for some time now. It is super puncture resistant my last pair was flat free for 3000 miles. The rolling resistance is surprisingly good can find the testing to prove it on line. I have moved up one size from 32 to 35 on my touring bike and it is now excellent for unpaved surfaces as well. And not as hard to initially install as many say it is. Not inexpensive but worth it for the trouble free performance.

No flats on small pea gravel. I need to get the tire to a mechanic to check to see if the tire is defective. At high speeds I can see the tire wobble.

In 2016 I rode the TransAm across the USA (about 4300 miles). I had no flat tires on the bike the whole trip using 700x 35 tires. I think that says it all. I use them all year long, mostly on pavement but also on gravel.

Stress reducing tires

Commuting daily on some of the worst urban roads I've come across I've suddenly stopped stressing about what's ahead and now enjoy my rides. It's true they are more difficult to put on and they're heavier than my previous tires, but so far they've made my ride so much more enjoyable I don't care. So far no more changing changing flats at night, in the rain, at temperatures below freezing!
