MARATHON PLUS MTB
The most puncture resistant MTB-tire approved for fast E-Bikes.
With ECE-R75 mark. On the central ribs it rolls easily over hard paths, while strong outer lugs give great offroad traction. The SmartGuard provides superior puncture protection. Good visibility even in the dark thanks to reflective lines on the sidewalls.
Available in 26", 27.5" and 29".
Our retail Experience.
These tyres are also particularly good for MTB eBikes. Since the forces upon the tyre are so much greater, most standard MTB tyre lugs just wear down SO FAST! They literally can not handle the bike. Yet the Marathon Plus MTB with its 'centre strip', the forces are spread more evenly, there is a more efficient energy transfer rate and rolling resistance while increasing the life of your product. We absolutely love this tyre and use it as much as we can. We just wish it came with a 2.35" and 2.6" variants!
Our customers over the years have loved the Marathon PLUS range. But why is the standard 'city' tread rated as a 6 for puncture resistance while the MTB is rated for a 7 by Schwalbe? It is because the lug hight literally lifts the tyre off the road more effectively increasing the puncture protection level.
