Customer Rating

Puncture resistance, speed, and lightweight -- together at last. The Supreme is the lightest and most robust tire in the heavy-duty Schwalbe Marathon line, pairing an exceptional ride quality with outstanding durability.

The RoadStar triple rubber compound delivers excellent traction on wet or dry surfaces, with water dispersing channels for a little extra piece of mind when cornering. This multi-density rubber is also hard wearing where its needed most, so the Marathon Supreme is still rolling long after many other tires would have called it quits.

Schwalbe's HD SpeedGuard puncture protection breaker uses tightly woven fibers to keep sharp objects out without taking on too much weight or sacrificing a supple ride. The LiteSkin sidewall material is also incredibly cut resistant yet light, and the Supreme's folding bead construction furthers the weight savings even more.

Available in Black with reflective sidewall stripe. Size 700c x 35mm (37-622mm ISO). Folding bead. 430g.

Tough, fast rolling tandem tire

Albuquerque, land of goatheads

I bought this tire to replace a non-folding Gatorskin on the back of my Co-Motion tandem. The rear tire on any tandem wears at least three or four times as fast as the front due to the weight and torque. While this is not a perfect rear tandem tire (haven't found one yet) and while it might be a few grams heavier than the comparable folding Gatorskin, I've found it rolls every bit as fast. It's definitely more puncture resistant than the Gator. I have had one goathead pierce it in 600 miles whereas by that time, with the previous tire, I'd had several. This tire rides softer than it looks (it looks hard). The reflector strip, while it looks like a bit of a whitewall during the day, is very reflective and pumps up the safety factor. The tread is not noisy at all. I don't know of a better all around rear tandem tire than this one. I've noticed some squaring off after 500 miles but, again, this is on the back of a tandem and to be expected with any tire (unless the stoker is light as a feather). Nice tire.

Bought this tire to place on the rear wheel of my Co-Motion tandem. 700c 28. Was getting more than the usual number of puncture (goat head) flats with a Gator with only 700 miles on it and it was time to try something else. The Gator actually got a slice in it as well. This is a whole different tire. Great tandem tire. Smooth, quiet ride. Not jarring. At fast rolling as the Gator, which surprised me. And much more durable. The reflective strip, which originally looked kind of like a white wall to me is amazing reflective on gray days or in the rain. Like any tire on the back wheel of a tandem, it's starting to square off after about 500 miles but this is to be expected due to the torque and weight on the back wheel of a tandem. But no tire is absolutely bombproof, unless you go with rubber that is so thick and hard that the ride really suffers (think, small little animal in Texas, part of it's name rhymes with brillo). I've gotten a goat head puncture with it but the sealant in the tube closed in right up. I'm convinced the goat heads we have here in NM could puncture a metal coffee can. All in all, a really good tire. Should sell for $10 less, though. Buy it on sale. And it's a German company but the tire is not actually made in Germany, which is disappointing.

I have used both these and Schwalbe Big Apple tires on my electric bike, which is a Bionx Townie men's bike. Presently I am on Marathon Supremes. The total bike weight conversion is about 65 lbs. Both tires have amazing grip. This Marathon Supreme takes more air pressure (85 lb compared to 55 psi on the Big Apples) and I do get a minimal but definite mileage gain from the higher pressures on this tire, about 6-8%. With a normal 30 mile range on my battery, a reserve of a couple of miles might be huge, depending where I have gotten myself to on a long ride. Both of these two Schwalbes have amazing grip, so much I am constantly scraping my pedals on the inside side of turns. All Schwalbes are tremendous tires, with great puncture protection and durability. I wouldn't ride on anything else.

Tires appearto be very high quality

You can feel and see the quality when mounting the tires. They roll well and give a great ride I don't have may miles on them yet but i anticipate a long life based on the reviews I have read. Reflective stripe is a nice addition to nighttime visibility.
