1 in 5,600 miles

Typical ! I have done 5600 miles no problem but last week on a quick run (300 yards) to pick up my prescription I got a 3/4 inch thorn right through to the inner tube. Still it hasn't changed my opinion of these excellent tyres. I'll walk next time !

Rock Solid

Just pulled a 10mm flint out of one of these tyres and no puncture. I had the narrower Schwalbe Marathon Plus on my hybrid and while just as robust these 'Tour' versions have better grip. Both models are really heavy so only use if your on trails or really do not want a puncture!

Excellent tyres

I do a fair few miles. I ride a CX and do a mixture of road, gravel, off-road, commuting etc. I have never punctured a set of these tyres (one pinch puncture) but nothing that has penetrated the tyre. I would definitely recommend them especially for commuting where the last thing you need is a puncture on the way to work or to make you late home for your dinner.

Hybrid Tyre

Difficult to get tyres that do road and trails ( Forest/Canal Tow path/Old Railway lines ) but these appear to be the closest I have got, you always compromise on something. The puncture protection makes them a harder ride ( but too many cold days repairing punctures make this worth while) The tread pattern gives good grip, rolling on the road is not bad. So if you cover a variety of surfaces on a hybrid bike ( and want some puncture protection ) these might be the tyres for you

Dependable strong commuting / leisure tyres

Set of 700x40c fitted easily to 29er Hardtail MTB (inner tubes change required for size adjust). Very good grip in all conditions so far, including heavy rain and assortment of surfaces like bridleways, redways and roads. Obviously the added puncture protection makes them heavy, but they roll well, and still able to have fun by chucking on and off kerbs and jump sleeping policemen (not something I can do on my road bikes). I use standard marathon plus on all my other hybrids and never ever had a puncture, we are talking thousands of miles so hard wearing. I'll be doing London to Brighton off road and the Trans Peninne Trail later this year with confidence. I highly recommend these tyres awesome for commuting or covering more serious distances 100 miles + no problem.

Schwalbe marathon plus tour

I wanted some robust all-round tyres for my Cube cross race pro to tackle long rides on the bridleways, railway cycle paths and forest fire roads of Durham & Northumberland. I was impressed with the deep tred on the tyres when they arrived, I had no difficulties fitting them as some people did. They tackle rough tracks with ease and roll quite well on tarmac though they were not bought for racing and up to now no punctures. The only criticism is the cost but you get what you pay for. So if your looking for a solid do it all tyre you can't go far wrong with the marathon plus tour.

Commuting tyres

I purchased these tyres after reading many a review for my 29er hardtail, 700 x 40c. I was a little hesitant over the size so rang up and checked. I was told there would be no issue and 40c should be fine. I placed my order and within a week my tyres arrived. I have only commuted26 miles so far but they have been an excellent choice. Thanks for the advice Tredz, you have made a very happy commuter
