Schwalbe Marathon Plus Smartguard Rigid Road Tyre - 26"
Puncture resistant, 26" tyre - ideal for touring.
- 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.
- Rigid bead.
- The ideal tyre for touring.
Mr winder Bought these for the tandem and they are great. I have used Schwalbe marathon tyres for many years, and have them on my gravel road bike as well. Great grip, great puncture resistance and long life. Highly recommend.
Mr Oates Ideal for using on my 26in MTB wheels so I can cruise around the city.
Mr Rogers It’s a 26” tyre. It’s round and it’s great for stopping most sharp or pointy objects from ruining your day.
Dr Barnett Reliable tyre, offers good puncture resistance and grip. Went on surprisingly easy with no need for levers
Mr Gunn Usual good service and value at Merlin. Get through these tyres on our tandem but they are tough (puncture resistant but not puncture proof) and give decent ride. Getting around 5,000 miles on them before the carcass starts to blister.
Mrs Smith Excellent sturdy tyres. Very pleased with quality and performance so far, looking forward to puncture free cycling!
Mr Saunders Fitted on our company bike, a Kona Africa, its perfect to zip around town not having to worry about punctures as you traverse those unmade cycle paths and shortcuts.
Mr Jamieson Excellent puncture-resistant tyre. On my 4th set now.
Mr harper These are great tyres, haven`t done many miles, but they are comfortable and look the part as well, also easy to put on and look to be very durable, would certainly buy again, brilliant service from merlin as usual.
Mr Taylor A wee bit heavy, but absolutely bomb proof. I use these on my morning training runs in all conditions including during darkness. I have hit unseen potholes at speed with absolutely no issues whatsoever. I have also fitted these to my wife's bike and she has not had one puncture in over a year
Mr Karadag I recommend these tyres to whom wants to not worry about punctures and want to have less rolling resistance. Handling is better than I expected on wet surfaces. Brake distance is also decreased after mtb tyres.
