Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by No brained for the commute. Bullet proof for the commute, no flats in over a thousand miles. Recommended. 10 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent wear. Good grip. I used these on a mountain bike that I used for commuting. The tyres have done about 500kms on bike paths so far and they show no signs of wear. In fact the front still has the moulding marks. The grip is also very good for a reasonably low rolling resistance tyre. 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very good tyre. Glass and other road debris no longer a problem. 1.75 a little weighty but gives a comfortable ride on London streets. Good grip in the wet, just go easy on loose gravel paths. 30 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic commuter tyre No punctures, good grip in all road conditions. Highly recommended. 04 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 8,000 miles and going strong I bought a pair of these early last year, just prior to a 3-day training ride for a 1000 mile LEJOG route. Not a single puncture throughout those journeys, and I was riding a Specialized FSR XC Comp (so not a light bike). They've been off-road, on- road, through rain, wind, snow, hale, glass, grass, mud, fields and have stood the test of time. Tread is still good on them, and despite 1 puncture a few weeks back, I would very strongly recommend them to anyone after durability, reliability and a good compound without breaking the bank - these have more than paid for themselves! Good work Schwalbe! 02 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Punctures? What punctures? I've ridden with these tyres about 6,000 miles all over Europe and Russia with over 25kg of kit loaded onto the bike. Haven't had a single puncture and some of the roads were awful. They may weight a fair bit, but the peace of mind from never getting a puncture is well worth it. 24 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by quality tyres These tyres have along life, are puncture proof ( I have ridden over broken glass ) and would reccomend them to serious cycliststs 03 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by very good The security of not worrying about a pucture makes this tyre worth the extra money. A reflective band round the rim is also a bonus. I fitted these to my mountain bike when I started to use it for computing to work so stopping in the wet is not as good as the wide novelties 03 February 2014

Answer: 
The 1.75" will give the closest inflation possible to your current tyre volume; but without knowing the intended use or intended benefit that is expected it is hard to advise.

Answer: 
I asked myself the same question when it was time to put new rubber on my commuter bike.
Most of my route to and from work is tarmac with about 200 yards of woodland bridleway.
I chose 1.5" and they are fine for me.

No, you need to use the same size you have as the ones you ask about will be too small to fit your wheels.

These two tyres are for different sized wheels, 26" and 700c.

The 700c variant is what you require for this bike.

Tyre spec

Hi CRC, I'm interested in a pair of the 1.75" tyres. Do these tyres come with or without reflective stripes?

Also thinking of buying Schwalbe MTB inner tubes to match. Should I purchase the 1.0-1.5" or 1.5-2.5" tubes? I have read that the puncture protection decreases the inner diameter of the tyre. Also that the tyres are difficult to fit and that larger tubes make matters worse.

Thanks

Answers

Answer: 
This tyre has a reflective sidewall.

The larger volume tube is recommended for use with this tyre; the 1.5 - 2.5" as the smaller option will stretch the tube and not provide enough volume.

As this tyre has a Wire Bead; fitting may prove tough; however once fitted provides a sturdy seating.

New thread pattern

Hi!

I just received my new Marathon Plus 26 x 1.5 tyre and it features the new thread pattern ( 40-559, written on sidewall ).

I was wondering if the 26 x 1.75 version also came with the new thread pattern ( which would be 47-559 ) and not the old one (the one on the product's picture)

Thanks!

Answers

Answer: 
The 40-559 and 47-559 are ETRTO measurements and are in relation to the width and diameter of the tyre.

These numbers are in no way related to a thread (TPI) pattern or Outer Casing tread pattern.

Answers

Answer: 
As long as the tube is the correct diameter it will still fit, but a larger tube will make the smaller tire harder to install. The extra rubber would provide a little additional pinch flat protection, but it would likely be easier to install a narrower tube to match the new tire.

Foldable tyre?

I've read it has a wire bead, so does that mean NOT foldable? Just curious from a touring point of view and keeping a spare easily.

Thanks.

Answers

Answer: 
Correct; the wire bead means this tire cannot be easily compacted for transport. You can usually fold them over into a figure of 8 shape, but it's not worth the risk of it warping out of shape while stored like this. For transport/ spares, folding tires are much more practical.
