Marathon Plus SmartGuard

Marathon Plus SmartGuard

Price: $43.00



Product Description Overview
Punctures become obsolete with the Schwalbe Marathon Plus! The SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack can't penetrate this protective layer. The SmartGuard belt doesn't increase rolling resistance. The Marathon Plus is amazing because of how well it rolls and the puncture protection that it offers. Customers have ridden years on these tires without even one flat!

Customer Reviews

probably one of the best tires i have ever used. Awesome handling in corners at speed, no fear of punctures on our rough and sometimes gravelly roads. Good low roll resistance, and good wear life.

What's Up With Tire Sizes?
One piece of cycling knowledge that is supremely frustrating is tire sizing. The late Sheldon Brown, was, undoubtedly, the foremost authority on bike tire sizing of his time, and even he had to admit that "bicycle tires come in a bewildering variety of sizes."

For tire sizes, we primarily use the The European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO) method of measurement. The ETRTO format has been adopted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is recognized in the industry as a reliable and uniform method for tire sizing.

An ETRTO size is comprised of two millimeter measurements, separated by a hyphen: "Tire Width - Rim Diameter." A tire reading "50-406" is 50mm wide and 406mm in diameter. For convenience, we've included traditional units beside the ETRTO listings on our website.

Here's a good explanation of the difference between ETRTO, Inch and French readings.
Here's a link to Sheldon Brown's own website about the trials and tribulations of tire sizing.
