The original. The archetypal high quality touring tyre. Now completely revised: GreenGuard. The highly elastic, India rubber layer is 3 mm thick. Other manufacturers call such a tyre “Plus”. However, Green is not just the colour, but also the philosophy: One third of the GreenGuard is made up of recycled latex products. "Anti-Aging“-The completely new sidewall construction can withstand for much longer the typical cracking resulting from overloading due to insufficient inflation pressure. Also the new Endurance Compound substantially increases durability. E-Bike Ready. The new Marathon has been designed for use on all types of E-bikes. The following sizes bear the ECE75 mark, suitable for use on faster, up to 50 kph, E-bikes.
Wheel / Tyre Sizing Notes
Where possible, we express wheel sizes in the ISO, French (FRE) and American (IMP) standards. For tyre sizing information, and an overview of the different size standards view the Schwalbe Technical Information (939KB) FAQ. The best and most reliable way to ensure you have the correct size is to check for the ISO code (in the form xx - yyy where xx is the tyre width in mm and yyy is the wheel diameter in mm) of your existing tyre. Most modern tyres will work, whatever the width, when the correct wheel diameter size is selected though frame clearance can become an issue with drastically wider tyres than were originally intended, particularly for road style bicycles. Consult the literature that came with your frame for information on frame clearances and other tolerances.
