Marathon Plus Tour HS 404

The new Flat-less tire. A heavy-duty trekking tread for asphalt, or off-road allows this versatile tire to always feel at home, whether in everyday use, or on long tours. The robust structure is an effective damage defense that is twinned with SmartGuard, the most effective puncture protection belt for bicycle tires.

Worthy Tire!

I've now owned this model and brand for over a 1,000 miles and they look almost brand new (tread wise). Other tires that cost almost as much have not shown this type of quality or wear resistance. I currently pack about 50 pounds on my Surly Long Haul Trucker with it's rear rack. I weigh in at around 220 pounds so total load on the bike is around 270 pounds. These tires are fabulous on pavement and hard pack. Though I have only a couple of minor annoyances with these. One is the tread pattern becomes noisy when going in excess of 15mph. The only other annoyance is it's ability to handle gravel road/small rocks. The later can be compensated for with steering. The prior I tolerate for the quality of the rubber on these tires. No where have I found a better tire and I've run plenty of tires on my bikes past and present. From here on out, any bike I own will have Schwalbe tires.
