Developed over 20 years ago, at that time it was a quantum leap in performance. The first high-quality tire suitable for reliable touring as well as everyday use. These characteristics quickly made it popular and today it is still Europe’s most ridden touring tire. In the newest version with KevlarGuard and Allround tread compound it can easily fulfill everything that is expected of a Marathon tire: effective puncture protection, durability and excellent handling characteristics. Wire bead.

only ridden these tires about 500 miles or so but several of them in pretty gritty urban road conditions. These tires are plenty tough, no flats and they hold their air over a long period of time. The refelective side walls work exceptionally well at night.

OK...but Rating:

fitted one of these tires onto the rear of my bike 8,000km into an 11,00km tour, Northern Tier, East Coast 2010.Had several (6) annoying punctures, mostly caused by tiny fragments of wire presumably from broken up steel belted truck/car tires finding their way through causing slow leaks. "Marathon plus" a better option but could not source at replacement time..(my wife had these front/rear for 11,000km and nil punctures!). Marathon Supreme (I have not used them)..may be a better option.

I just bought my third set of the marathons to replace my 2nd set with over 12000 miles including a 4000 mi. Northern Tier ride in 09.and no flats. I do use a liner just incase. Great tires.

Rhymes with wallaby? Rating:

Loved my first set so much, bought another. The first set lasted over 7000 miles with very few flats but succumbed this year to all the glass on the Major Taylor Trail.
