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!

14,000 miles


Reviewed By: Ken Gross on 8/8/22

I rode over 14,000 miles on the same Schwalbe Marathon Plus HS440 tires mounted on a Surly Disc Trucker. 4,500 miles were heavily loaded on an E-W TransAm. Only ONE FLAT in the 14,00 miles: a drywall screw near Hazard KY (you might have guessed).

30,000 miles on Schwalbes

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!
