EVOLUTION is the name of our highest quality line. Among the touring tires, this premium class includes three Marathons: SUPREME, ALMOTION and MONDIAL. The global innovation: the first two can now also be used with TUBELESS EASY. This is because they are equipped with the new high-pressure capable TUBELESS EASY technology – with MicroSkin!
The MARATHON SUPREME is the high-tech touring tire with the highest design aspirations. Ever since it has been available, it has been the first choice of brand manufacturers if, for instance, a trekking bike or an urban bike has to convince with a classy style and individual character.
We have now completely revised the sought-after SUPREME design tire . It has a new profile and rolls more smoothly than ever before. One reason for this is the OneStar compound which is also used with our best racing bike tires.
Many cyclists who choose the SUPREME attribute considerable importance to less weight, less rolling resistance and yet the highest puncture safety, in short, they want genuine "deluxe cycling".
For everyone who wants this, the SUPREME offers a new option. In the future it is also compatible with the TUBELESS EASY system, not only with sport bikes, but also, and finally, with bikes for the city, for touring or for long trips!
TUBELESS EASY MICROSKIN
Tubeless for high-pressure tires is now possible on a reliable basis thanks to our new patented MicroSkin design. Tubeless offers clear advantages compared with tires that have tubes: in terms of speed, comfort, grip and puncture protection. This is because the rolling resistance is lower, the cut resistance is far improved and the weight is significantly lower in comparison with the old tubeless technology.
If you have a tubeless-compatible or tubeless-convertible wheel rim, the installation is very easy.
The ALMOTION was our first touring tire in 2014 which could be mounted tubeless. This initial version was celebrated as a "rolling wonder" by the press. Now, the ALMOTION also has the new MicroSkin technology and is a leader in terms of its performance data. It is absolutely the fastest Marathon!
Our best touring tire might not yet be tubeless-compatible. But despite this, it is the best for world tours, as confirmed by someone who knows his stuff: Tilmann Waldthaler
