The original: The archetypal high quality touring tire!
Featuring the Endurance rubber compound that makes the Marathon more durable. Furthermore it has a green "Plus": Its GreenGuard protection belt (Schwalbe Puncture Protection Level 5) is made up by one third recycled material. A three millimeter thick GreenGuard protection belt is placed under the tire tread, effectively protecting the tube from everyday cycling punctures.
Schwalbe has equipped the Marathon with the innovative "Anti-Aging" side wall. The tire will now tolerate this "low inflation overloading" for much longer before ugly cracks eventually start to appear. In order to develop better resistance, Schwalbe technicians spent many hours performing harsh tests - poorly inflated tires, loaded with weights on a rolling-road, that artificially simulated unevenness over many thousand kilometers.
In the bicycle market E-Bikes are currently a fast-growing segment, but these electrically power bicycles place special demands on tires. Puncture resistance is clearly more important, because a tire change, or tube repair is far more difficult than is the case with an ordinary bike. Also wear is much greater, because there is more power transmission and the bikes are also much heavier. With its improved puncture protection and greater durability the new Marathon is much better prepared for E-bike use.
