Flatless The Movie


The new flat-less

The Marathon Plus is the only tire worldwide that can be called "flat-less". This is due to its unique and patented puncture protection belt: five millimetres thick and made from highly elastic special rubber. Even thumbtacks can't puncture it.

The new Marathon Plus is not only flat-less, it also rolls lighter than ever before. And, because of its anti-aging side wall, it lasts unbelievably long. Now also approved for fast e-bikes.


Lighter rolling

Due to the unique puncture protection, the weight of the Marathon Plus is a little high. But although the Marathon Plus weighs a couple of extra grams, its rolling characteristics are excellent.

The empirical laboratory test confirms what you can feel for yourself on the bike- the new Marathon Plus rolls noticeably lighter than other tires with puncture protection belts of comparable thickness.


Longer lasting

The original Marathon Plus is now protected against premature aging resulting from adverse weather conditions or excessive stress in the case of insufficient air pressure. We have developed a special anti-aging technology. It makes the side walls of the Marathon Plus extremely resistant to ugly crack formation.

At the same time, the Marathon lives up to its name with a new rubber compound: The Endurance Compound rolls for thousands of kilometres with excellent performance characteristics and low abrasion.


Saving resources

The puncture protection on the Marathon Plus tire is extremely elastic. This is important for both comprehensive protection and dynamic rolling. The high elasticity can only be achieved by using special rubber with a high proportion of natural rubber.

Natural rubber is a valuable raw material. It can only be recycled through very complicated processes. But we like a challenge. The puncture protection in the new Marathon Plus is partly made of recycled natural rubber.


A perfect match for e-bikes

Everyone is talking about e-bikes. They require an extremely stable, durable and puncture-proof tire. Naturally, the new Marathon Plus fulfils all e-bike tire requirements. This is not just true of e-bikes with pedal assistance up to 25 km/h. The new Marathon Plus

is certified with the European mark of conformity for fast e-bikes up to 50 km/h for all the most popular sizes. The following sizes bear the ECE R75 mark of conformity:
47-406, 47-599, 37-622, 40-622, 47-622.


The original

In 2002, the first "flat-less" tire hit the road and revolutionised puncture protection for bicycles. The Marathon Plus was the first of the "Plus" class of tire and, since then, has been sold millions of times worldwide.

In the meantime, there are numerous imitators of the puncture protection system, many of which also have "Plus" added to their name. But none of these can achieve performance values like those of the original, the new Marathon Plus.
