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 109 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality tyres These tyres are very good quality, tough, flexible and durable. 17 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Rolling resistance significantly lower than the previous tires (Kenda), of the same size/format. Bike turned faster. Amazingly improved ride comfort, while riding on rough/uneven pavements. Great product. Bike feels lighter. 25 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by выбираю Schwalbe! Выбираю Schwalbe - так как уверен в качестве. С этой покрышкой я уверенно чувствую себя везде, где бы не проходил мой велопуть. И никаких проколов. 22 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire I recommend this tyre because it has very good and reliable. I ride 60km every day. 30 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't want punctures? Get these. After over 2.5years of commuting 20miles a day in London these tyres have not punctured. So, around about 10000miles. That's good. I no longer whince when going through smashed glass. I no longer fix punctures by the side of the road in the rain. Good grip in the rain too - way better than my Continental Gatorskins. Barely any wear on these either. Downside? Yes, they're heavy. And they're a pain to fit (but you should only have to do it once!). 29 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bulletproof tyres Great tyres for commuter bike or cyclo-touring. No puncture yet. 28 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing tyres, should have bought them last year After suffering a year of riding on Continental touring plus tyres (which were awful*) I am now riding on these tyres which are the complete opposite! I was concerned that the 38 width would be too wide and have poor rolling resistance, not so, they are quiet, absorb all the poor road surfaces and for a wide tyre are superfast! Also I had no issues with fitting them (maybe the thinner sizes are more difficult to fit?) * (see my review on the conti touring tyres) 21 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the Money These are probably one of the more expensive road/commuter tires you could buy, but totally worth the money for someone who is a) less concerned about weight, but b) more concerned about getting where they're going (e.g. work) reliably and without interruptions. YOU SIMPLY WILL NOT EVER GET A FLAT WITH THESE TIRES. END STOP. 01 May 2014

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.

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.

Will this fit on my bike?

Will the 700 X 25 version of this tire fit a 2008 Cervelo r3? I run 700 x 25 shwalber duranos on the bike, but this tire seems to have a taller profile.
