The Schwalbe Marathon has been a stable of touring cyclists for many years. It has a great reputation as a hard wearing and reliable tyre. New for 2011, the "Greenguard" version of the Marathon is a redesign which brings a greater level of puncture resistance, better suitability for electric bikes, and even greater endurance than its predecessor.

The green coloured puncture resistant Greenguard layer is 3 mm thick and made of 1/3rd recycled latex.

This tyre is still not quite so puncture proof as the Marathon Plus, but it does have advantages. It's still a very good and puncture resistant tyre, it's a bit less expensive and it's available in more sizes, including to fit folding bikes and trailers.

Judy has Schwalbe Marathon tyres on her touring bike. I have them on my folding bike and have used them for commuting and touring.

To avoid confusion in size, we use the ETRTO tyre sizes. These consist of two numbers giving width and rim diameter in millimetres. If you are buying replacement tyres then your existing tyres will have these numbers on their side-wall. In many cases, a slightly wider tyre can be fitted for more comfort, but take care of clearance for mudguards, brakes and frame tubes.

The Schwalbe Marathon has both a reflective sidewall for safety and a dynamo track to optimise working with a dynamo lighting system.

If unsure about what tyre size you need, please read our guide to choosing the correct tyre size.

In many sizes (including the most common: 37-622) this tyre is approved for e-bikes at up to 50 km/h.
