The popular allrounder is now available with extra safe 3 mm GreenGuard puncture protection.
GreenGuard: The insert of highly flexible natural rubber is 3 mm thick. Its inner values are also "green". A third of the GreenGuard is produced from recycled latex products. Old products of natural rubber (such as gloves, inner tubes …) are shredded and, after several process stages, are again used as basic material in the puncture protection inserts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nutrack Don't buy these unless you enjoy mending punctures.
What a disappointment these tyres are. I bought them because they are advertised as being virtually puncture proof. I had had 4 punctures in 515 miles with Continental Mountain Kings, which I felt to be unacceptable, so I was looking for something better and thought these should fit the bill. Forget it. I have had 2 punctures in 46 miles, both from thorns penetrating the so-called "protection layer".
I have had excellent experiences with Schwalbe Marathons on other bikes, and made the mistake of thinking Schwalbe tyres might be of uniform high quality. Bad mistake.
