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

2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

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.

Tough but fast, smooth riding tandem 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.

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.

I have been using marathon Supremes for about 10 years. After 2 years or so there is a sharp piece of steel that protrudes from the tire and gives me a flat. Whenever this happens I know I need to change the tire . This has happened every time, and it is always after about 2 years of riding the tire. Does anyone know if it is the design of the tire or the process of manufacturing. Overall, good tires I don't see me changing at this time. It does seem as though the quality has gone down over the past few years though.

Good tire - low rolling resistance - nice riding

Toured about 1200 miles so far with these in a 700x40c size mostly on pavement with a few packed limestone-dirt bikepaths. The total weight (bike, rider, and gear) is about 320lbs (it's my 'privilege' to carry a lot of gear). I run a pressure of 75psi front and 80psi rear. They are showing signs of wear, though the molding flash is still barely visible in a few spots. I estimate total mileage should be about 3200-3600.

The rolling resistance seems decent and is definitely better than the Marathon Plus in a similar size, besides being lighter (I know, why worry about a few hundred grams) and much smoother riding.

Wet grip is good for stopping. Admittedly, I haven't tried serious wet cornering being loaded down this much but so far no problems. They do whine a bit at certain speeds on smooth pavement, but not really objectionable or I can change speed to avoid it. The folding bead makes it easy to carry a spare (which I haven't needed yet). Actually, haven't needed the spare tube either, being (shhhh!!) flat-free so far. I'd buy them again.

Good compromise of durability and light weight

We replaced Schwalbe Marathon Racers in 700x35 that came with the bike with Schwalbe Marathon Supremes in 700x28 before starting a self supported 2000 mile bike tour from northern Michigan to Portland, ME. My wife and I and gear weighed about 200 lbs. An estimated 600 miles were on hard packed crushed limestone. We ran the tires at about 90PSI.

One front tire had to be replaced at about 1000 miles due to a sharp piece of steel penetrating the sidewall. Because the tires are folding, we had a spare with us. One rear had to be replaced following another sharp piece of steel penetrating the tread at about 1800 miles, damaging the inside of the tire such that tubes wouldn't last.

We noticed easier pedaling with the bikes unloaded after we changed the Racers out to the Supremes. We really like the folding bead enabling carrying a spare tire when touring along with the lighter weight and higher pressure rating. We are also satisfied with the tires durability and will buy a new set before we do our next cross country tour.

Marathon Supreme Has Been Tire Of Choice

5 of 5 customers found this review helpful.

The marathon supreme is mounted on my wife's bike, daughter's bike, and on all three of my bikes. These tires have seen many thousands of miles of commuting, recreation, and event riding. Each Tire has given me about 2,000 miles of good traction almost flat free riding. Until the last Schwalbe Marathon Supreme replacement, I would have given this tire a Five Star rating. The newer Supremes do not have the same overall excellent appearance as the tires that I was buying years ago. The tread, sidewalls, and finish seem a little sloppy ... compared to the excellent product that I am used to seeing. My newer 700c X 28mm Supreme has separation cracks running all the around the tire, on either side of the center tread. The tire only has a few hundred miles of road use. I will be returning this tire. The Schwalbe Supreme is a great design,but the construction quality appears to be going down hill.

Nothing to dislike. These are my second set after putting on slightly over 7,000 miles on 1st set over a one year period. There was still some miles left but it was stating to get thin in a few places. Best tires ever. And never had a single flat in that time.

i use these tires for street duty on a Cyclocross-style bike i use as an all-'rounder.

i found these tires to fit standard-width road rims significantly taller but not a lot wider than the typical 32c tires i use on that bike, but find they have substantially more air volume so that i can run higher pressures for low rolling resistance and still have the 'cush' of a beach cruiser.

my only nit to pick with them is that i think the white reflective sidewall looks stupid.

it's very effective (if an observers eyes and the light source is lined up right), but i'd much prefer Schwalbe used the black reflective stuff that's successfully in use in so many other applications these days.

You get what you pay for and this is another example of an expensive tire that seems to be worth the price. First 188 miles were just feeling them out partially loaded then did a cross NY State fully loaded touring bike(483 miles). Handled well at high speeds and in the wet. Returned across the state partially loaded(452 miles). Rotated tires before return and had one flat at beginning of return trip. Very large piece of glass and one ugly cut. Probably another tire would not have held up for the rest of the trip(450 miles). Will relegate the cut tire to a spare or front tire for the next loaded tour.

I commuted four years past construction on south waterfront on one pair. These tires were amazing. No flats. I am only replacing them now (5000) miles because of many large pieces of glass embedded in the tire. The only other thing is the ride quality is a little more harsh than before - I rode at 80 psi during the last few months( I also got a full suspension MTB so I may be inclined to plush now).

This tire is Supreme! I have ridden this company's products before and this is by far their most comfortable tire. Ride quality is excellent and it grips well in the rain. The reflective sidewall is great with disc brake bikes, since they stay free of brake dust. Just a really well made tire. So far I have about 600 miles on them in everything from asphalt to gravel with no flats or complaints.
