The Supreme was the first Evolution line Marathon and now in its second generation the new OneStar compound makes it even faster. With the new profile it not only looks good, but also rolls more nimbly than ever before.
Note: Marathon Supreme HS 382 has been updated to the HS 469. Same great tire, updated and improved tread pattern.
Great tire for loaded touring. I rotate tires every 500-750 miles as the rear tire tends to wear quicker due to its heavier load. By doing so I am still riding this set with over 4,000 miles and zero flats! Good width for gravel/dirt detours.

Did the Northern Tier last summer, starting in mid-May from west to east. One ruined rear tire due to a high speed runnover of a concrete nail that took out the tire and gouged the rim.
No other issues, and my tires outlasted three other riders, with room to spare. It doesn't get any better than this for long tours.

Good tire that is light , but only good for hard surfaces.
They also make a funny sound over 20 k/h
I use them mainly for hacking around and change them over to XR's for loaded touring.
