Schwalbe Marathon Plus HS 440 Tire


The Schwalbe Marathon Tires incorporate light-reflecting sidewalls for better visibility and also utilizes a Silica compound for easy rolling and longer life. It's the most puncture-resistant pneumatic tire on the market. The Marathon Plus is the only tire worldwide that can be called "flat-less". This is due to its unique and patented puncture protection belt: five millimeters thick and made from highly elastic special rubber. Even thumbtacks can't puncture it!

30,000 miles on Schwalbes


Reviewed By: Lonnie Maddox on 6/3/22

No punctures on 5 sets of these Schwalbes on our tandem over 30,000 miles. They’re heavier than comparable tires, but I prefer the trade off since I no longer worry about flats (especially while touring, where I switch to the foldable version). Highly recommended from practical experience.

Great no flat tire

I had this tire on the rear for a trip across the us with no flats. Had 3 other tires on the front and had many flats incl. 3 in one day. Love these tires and now have them on my other bikes.

The Best!

I ONLY use these tires. I rode the ENTIRE Trans Am with these tires plus more before and afterwards. I NEVER had on single flat tire for over 10,000 kms!! Matter of fact, the thread was worn off, bald, and I still had NO flats. I changed them because of baldness (no thread/overuse), not because of any flats.

Superb Touring Tire

My cycling partner and I rode the length of the Northern Tier Route with these tires and had one flat between us the entire way, and that was a tube valve stem issue at the very end of the trip. Highly recommended!

Good all around tire


Reviewed By: Mike Goodrich on 7/25/20

Bought these to replace the stock tires on my touring bike. Unfortunately, there is not much touring in a time of pandemic so I’ve been testing them on the mean streets of Albuquerque and one off road (gravel) ride. So far, they’ve performed admirably and have more traction than my tried and true Continental Gatorskins. They are a bit heavier (700x28), but provide lots of stability and confidence when zipping downhill or cornering. Looking forward to the day when I can put them to a multi-day ride test!
