StarStarStarStarStar Legendary for a reason

Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: low

I use Schwalbe Marathon on all three of my bikes: my Batavus Breukelen, my Worksman Port-O-Trike and their 2 wheel folding model. I was getting flats every week or two, and was on a first name basis with the guys in the bike store :-( . So I did a little homework/research, confirmed what I read with "the guys", ordered the Schwalbes. I got 4000 miles out of the first pair on the Batavus, and about the same or better on the little trike that I use to exercise my dogs and as a garden cart as well as for some grocery shopping. For my money and peace of mind, I'll take the Schwalbe any day. Also use tire liners. Now they only see me once a year for a tune up!

StarStarStarStarStar Best tire I've ever owned

by
Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

I had a pair of continental contact 700x37 for 4 months...and got 4 flats. At the recommendation of a friend, I bought some Schwalbe 700x35. Since then, the only tires I've changed have been my riding companions. Would definitely buy again.

Cons

Seems to roll a bit slower than my previous tires, but the reliability trumps it.

StarStarStarStarStar Great tire

by
Ownership: a few months

Pros

Durability, puncture resistance, great looks.

Cons

Weight, slightly higher rolling resistance, can be difficult to mount.

Other Thoughts

These tires have been great. I put them on my tandem and they have performed flawlessly. Our team weight plus the bike is pushing 450 lbs and we rode on these tires for the entire week of RAGBRAI and had no flats. The tires had great traction in wet and dry conditions and are well worth the price.

Pros

70# tires instead of 40# tires makes our TerraTrike Rover Tandem pedal much easier. No flats after >1500 miles.

Cons

None.

StarStarStarStarStar Very good tires I like them a lot

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Urban and puncture resistance touring tire. Not too heavy. EASY TO INSTALL. Not supertight and a knuckle breaker like some other durable tires out there.

Cons

NONE

Other Thoughts

I paid full price and am happy with my purchase.

StarStarStarStarStar Dependable Tire

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Not bullet proof but they are bullet resistant. I have many miles on more than one set of these tires and I have never had a flat from a puncture.

Cons

They are really stiff and I had a REALLY hard time getting them on the rim. In fact, I pinched more than one tube getting them on the rim. This is probably because I don't get any practice putting new tubes in tires.
