Rolling Resistance. The patented, 5mm thick SmartGuard layer, when compared to all generic products, has a significant advantage in rolling resistance. Schwalbe further extended its lead in the latest version.

Ms LyGood product to use on Brompton.
George GThese are the second set of Schwalbe tyres I have replaced on our Brompton’s. Had read some reviews that the Marathon Plus was hard to fit but I did not find them that difficult to get on. Ordering from Merlin was simple and delivered quickly.
PhilipGood deal all round. Delivered promptly. Not as hard to fit as rumoured - just follow the technique on the Brilliant Cycles site.
Mr BrownGood quality tyre, bit harder to get on versus normal Brompton tyre but if you have the right tools it's doable at home. Hard to comment on durability as it's brand new but seems good!
bikenwalkThis is my second set of Smartguard tires for my Brompton. I bought them to keep on hand for the day when I have to replace the first pair. At the current rate of wear, I believe that will be a long time from now. The rolling resistance with the Schwalbes is noticeably less than what came on the Brompton. I have had no flat tires after a full season of use and expect to have no flat based on the design. It's worth a premium price to buy this tire because a flat will be difficult to repair on a Brompton, especially the rear.

Michael Prenez-IsbellMy two new beautiful brompton tires (tyres as you folks say) arrived professionally packaged and promptly at a VERY good price. The new Marathon Plus tires really bite the road and give me much more control. Couldn't be more delighted.
