Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tyre with Smart Guard

Punctures are a memory. The SmartGuard‚ layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer. The SmartGuard belt does not increase rolling resistance. The Marathon Plus rolls as easily as a tyre without protection.

  • SmartGuard
  • Durable compound
  • Please note that the 26” tyre is in the Road Tyre section and will NOT fit a MTB rim

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tyres I purchased a brand new Trek FX 7.5 as a commuting bike (used to use and old mountain bike) and i started to loose my love for the speed of the bike due to having endless punctures every day, during an average week i had at least 3 front or rear punctures, so much so i started to drive into work. So i researched these types about the puncture resistant nature and the great all year round nature of them. They are superb tyres i haven't had a single puncture or even lost much air in the tyres over the whole winter! (6 months and counting!) great product and highly recommended 13 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great thread,puncture resistance and quality. After numerous punctures and a hard ride on terrible road surfaces,this tyre is an outstanding improvement.No punctures yet,great grip on wet roads and because of their size you will feel it tougher ascending hills,so overall great for winter training/commuting. 10 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4,000 miles later and not a single puncture I would 110% recommend these tyres to anyone who hates changing tubes on a dark winters night in the pouring rain, or anyone who simply wants to spend their time on the bike actually riding and not worrying/fixing flats. After commuting over 4,000 miles on my Schwalbe Marathon Plus Road tyres I am putting them into retirement, not due to a puncture - I have not had a single puncture, flat or any problems at all over the last 2 years running them both in summer and winter conditions - I am retiring them only because I have worn the tread down. The resistance from these slightly chunkier tyres is minimal. The quality is fantastic. The reliability and 10 March 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Grip or Longevity? I bought these to replace my Schwalbe slicks so that I (so I thought) could go out on the wet roads over the winter period rather than sit on the turbo (boring!). TBH, they've got less grip than most of the slicks I've ever run and I felt decidedly unsafe on them (25mm). No punctures and the wear rate is phenomenally good - but as a 'wet' tyre, they're useless. Weight-wise, they're a non-starter for dry, too. Worse, one of mine had a kink in it that I just couldn't 'pop' out... and while I didn't really feel it on tarmac, on the couple of occasions the MP went on the trainer, it was VERY noticeable. So all in all, I was not impressed with my purchase; I won't be buying them again... and I wouldn't recommend it. 25 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best tyres for commuting I've been using these tyres for several years and they are great. It is now more than 11000 km (6900 miles) since I last had a puncture, and that was the neck of a broken bottle that I went right over the top of. I eventually replaced my rear tyre after approx. 5000 miles (8000 km) when I had worn the rubber out and was through to the blue puncture protection layer in the central tread. I agree with other reviewers that the grip can sometimes be a bit less than other tyres, especially when cold and you're on a slippery surface, (I use these tyres in southern Scotland so temperatures from 0 to 36 C, any colder and I use studded tyres) and they are certainly heavier and slower than lighter ones, but it is all about compromise. They can be tricky to fit and I normally use tyre levers to get them on for the last wee bit (my thumbs can struggle) but, because they are so tough, you hopefully wont have to change them away from the house. If you are looking for a reliable, bomb proof, commuting tyre, that has reasonable grip and will last several thousand miles, then these are ideal. 21 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Un pneu polyvalent d'exceptiont Voila un pneu pour les trekkers devant l'éternel. Je viens de faire 2000 kms depuis Arles jusqu'à Santiago de Compostela par la côte méditerranéene, puis les chemins catalan, del Ebro et finalement le chemin frances . Rochers, garrigue, graviers , boue, routes sous la pluie , chemins de halage, forestiers, empierrés...ce pneu donne confiaznce . Seul bémol: dans la boue et dans graviers sur les plats et particulièrement dans les fortes descentes il y a tendance à perdre son accrochage. ( mais si vous faites du ski ....) A conseiller sans modération!! Ainsi que les autres pneus Schwalbe de type trekking. 05 February 2014

Answer: 
The tyre you're looking at is a 700 (mm) which is bigger than your MTB "26 inch" tyre - so it won't fit. You need to look at 26in spec tyres.

The '2.1' on your existing tyre relates to the width of the tyre, in inches. Typically, MTB tyres tend to be shown in inches - e.g. 26 x 1.75. That would be a tyre suitable for a 26-inch MTB wheelset, and which gave a contact width of one-and-three-quarter inches. When you see specs like 700 x 32, that means it's a 700mm (diamter) tyre with a 32mm width.

To convert inches to millimetres (to get a rough idea), multiply by 25.4. EG: A 1.5-inch wide tyre would be pretty close to a 38mm wide tyre.

Are repairs or tube replacements a nightmare?

I understand that getting a wire beaded tyre onto a wheel can be difficult. However can someone advise if with these tyres it is equally difficult to carry out a tube replacement in the unlikely event that you get a puncture? Some wire beaded tyres are easier than others to work with, and I wondered if these were easier or difficult.
