New: Marathon Dureme. The long distance runner.

The new Marathon Dureme epitomizes – as its name suggests - extreme longevity and durability. Schwalbe has now filled the gap in its Marathon Evolution Line tires with a versatile tire for enthusiastic everyday and touring cyclists.

Marathon Dureme is a tire for anyone who wants to enjoy riding using only the best materials. Its classic, versatile tread always makes it feel at home – with its superior handling and light running on the road. The youngest member of the legendary long distance family offers the finest tire technology.

Its three-compound tread with Nano particles combines seemingly unattainable top performance of grip, easy rolling and long life. The three mixtures are arranged in such a way to work in harmony: Grip on the shoulders, durability in the center tread and under this an extremely light rolling compound.

Patented puncture protection provides further moments of cycling happiness. The fibers of the High Density Guard are more densely woven than any other material used in tire technology. "This is the only way to ensure such a high level of puncture protection in such a light tire", explained Holger Jahn, Schwalbe’s Technical Director.

On the tire sides a robust, but nevertheless light "SnakeSkin" protects against lateral damage from sharp objects. Schwalbe calls this form of twin security "Double Defense”.

Due to its technically sophisticated, ingenious construction the Marathon Dureme is extremely light (from just 475 grams as a folding tire) and at the same time very robust. "In the Evolution Line we have combined all of our knowledge. The rider feels the finely coordinated tire technology as everything is well thought out and not a gram is wasted", said Jahn.

Its elegant pin-stripe label gives it a striking appearance and it is therefore the perfect partner for high quality touring bikes.

Marathon Dureme is available in bicycle stores by the end of 2009.

Schwalbes Evolution Line: Without equal in tire technology

Schwalbe’s high quality tire range - from Race and MTB to Trekking – is found in its Evolution Line into which the very latest innovations regularly flow. "Evolution is constant advancement. Step by step we are making the best even better. This permanent evolution with many innovations is what makes our tires so unique today", is how Jahn described the strategy.

There are now three Marathons in this Line. The new Marathon Dureme (Everyday, Trekking) closes the gap between the Marathon Supreme for city use and the Marathon Extreme for extreme touring.
