HOW TO GET THROUGH THE WINTER SAFELY ON YOUR BIKE
Winter in Germany. For many cyclists, this means slipping and sliding on sparsely cleared bike paths and side roads. But that doesn't have to be the case! With an adapted riding style and the right equipment, winter can't harm you on your bike.
WHAT YOU CAN DO RIGHT AWAY: ADJUST TIRE PRESSURE
WHAT YOU SHOULD AVOID: DRIVE (SEMI-) SLICKS
MARATHON GT 365
The Marathon GT 365 was specially developed for use as an all-season tire. The lamella profile and the specially tuned "Four Season" rubber compound provide safe grip in almost all weather conditions.
WHAT REAL EXPERTS DO:
SPECIAL TIRES FOR SNOW AND ICE
ICE SPIKER PRO
The Ice Spiker Pro provides the right bite for the MTB in winter. With up to 402 spikes, it provides exceptional traction - even on ice. The spike bodies are made of aluminum; this saves weight and the bike remains agile.
MARATHON WINTER PLUS
The Marathon Winter Plus combines a special winter compound with siped tread and up to 240 studs. As a result, the tire offers full control, even when cornering or during sharper braking maneuvers.
The Winter also offers a rubber compound specially adapted for winter use in combination with a few studs. This makes the tire ideal for extra grip in milder winter conditions.
