Brilliant tyres that easily handled nearly 6000 km touring Europe last year with only one puncture on the very last day in the UK due to very rough and splintery debris from hedge slashing on the country lane. The tyres are still fine with plenty of tread but as we're touring again we have ordered new ones. Great service from Merlin also - they arrived quickly without any issues.
Just mounted 2 on front of Tadpole trike and notice more comfortable ride. Will mount 3rd one on back soon. Prior ones worked great and stopped getting flats out on roads after adding Marathon Plus tires to my trike.
Rolls well so far, still needs some miles and rough terrain to test the flatless claim that they advertise. Good for night riding as well due to reflectorized markings.
First rate flat resistant tires. I've been riding on Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires for the past 6 years, averaging over 2,000 miles per year, and never get flats. And, with the current strong US$, compared to the Pound, Merlin's price cannot be beat.
