Probably The Toughest Bike Tyre in The World... The Schwalbe Marathon Plus has been the tyre of choice for the majority of recent Round the World record attempts... But even if you're not planning to ride round the world but still want bomb-proof dependability then these are an excellent choice...Schwalbe, a German company, was founded in 1922 and only makes bicycle and wheelchair tyres. The Marathon Plus is possibly the most puncture resistant bicycle tyre there is - so tough that Schwalbe had to redesign their testing methods. A tough but flexible rubber layer lies under the tread. This tough layer (which Schwalbe call Smartguard) resists penetration by nasty sharp stuff. This is not a tyre you'd fit for racing - the puncture resistant layer adds a bit of weight. But for virtually puncture-free riding, the Schwalbe Marathon Plus is hard to beat! Andrew, one of our testing crew has had Marathon Plus tyres on both his touring bike and his Brompton folder for years - he says he does not remember ever getting a puncture... For something a bit lighter and livelier - but not quite as tough,
have a look at Specialized Armadillo Nimbus Tyres...
