Marathon Plus tires for bikes and e-bikes.

Marathon Plus tires are the only tires in the world that can truly claim to be flat-less. This is thanks to their unique patented puncture protection belt. What’s more, they offer exceptional long life, dynamic rolling behavior and many more superior features. Marathon Plus tires are only available from Schwalbe.

Whatever the demands, there is the right Schwalbe flat-less tire for you.

Long lifespan

Weather conditions and low air pressure can lead to early aging of bike tires. This is the reason we have developed an anti-aging technology: it prevents ugly cracks in the tire sidewalls.

At the same time, Marathon Plus and Marathon Plus Tour live up to their name thanks to their rubber compound: the endurance compound cruises smoothly for thousands of miles with outstanding handling behavior and low abrasion. And, in the case of the specific high loads supported by e-bikes, Marathon E-Plus, with ADDIX-E compound, is especially suitable, offering maximum durability and grip.

Outstanding rolling features

Thanks to the unique puncture protection, the weight of Marathon Plus tires is slightly higher, but rolling behavior remains excellent. Laboratory tests confirm what riders experience on their bikes: Marathon Plus tires roll significantly more smoothly than other tires with puncture protection belts of a similar thickness.

Resource-friendly

The Marathon Plus tire puncture protection belt is extremely elastic – essential for flat-less protection and dynamic rolling. This high elasticity can only be achieved by using a special rubber, containing a high proportion of natural rubber.

Natural rubber is a valuable raw material. To conserve resources, we incorporate a portion of recycled natural rubber in our flat-less protection belts. This recycling process is very expensive – but we feel it’s worth it.

Flat-less for e-bikes

A flat tire on an e-bike is especially annoying because the repair is likely to cost more. At the same time, an e-bike makes special demands on a tire because it is significantly heavier due to the motor and battery pack and reaches higher average speeds.

All you need to know about demands on e-bike tires

Schwalbe’s answer to this tire challenge has been to develop Marathon Plus with Smart DualGuard: a tire whose flat-less puncture protection technology has been attuned to the specific demands of e-bikes. Marathon E-Plus brings riding safety, durability, smooth rolling, stability and longevity together in one tire.

To Marathon E-Plus web special

Good to know: All other Marathon Plus tires meet the high demands required for e-bike tires. And, not only for e-bikes with pedal assist up to 25 km/h. Marathon Plus, like Marathon Plus MTB, is certified in standard sizes with the European test mark ECE R75 for speed e-bikes up to 50 km/h.
