Schwalbe Marathon Plus 22, 24, 25 and 26 Inch Puncture Resistant Tyres
The safest bicycle tyre for most purposes is the â€œflat-lessâ€ tire MarathonÂ Plus. This tyre incorporates a SmartGuard belt, made out of highly elastic special rubber, which is
approx. 5mm thick. The decisive advantage of SmartGuardÂ® is itsÂ effectiveness against objects that become lodged in the tread, that areÂ rolled over at each turn of the wheel and will eventually penetrateÂ virtually any protection belt. This is where the advantage ofÂ SmartGuard comes into effect.
For example a thumbtack, can becomeÂ embedded in the rubber without causing any damage.Â The new â€œHigh Density Guardâ€ works on a different principle ofÂ functionality. Using a patented weaving technology, an extremelyÂ close-meshed and dense fabric is produced. This belt is incredibly hardÂ to puncture. No other bicycle tire features such a similar dense fabric.
Schwalbe Marathon Plus incorporateÂ High Density Guard
With High Density Guard it is now possible for the first time toÂ effectively protect very light tires from punctures.
Additional steps to prevent a puncture
- The best and most important protection against punctures is a highÂ quality tyre with a good puncture belt.
- Maintain the correct inflation pressure. If the inflation pressure is tooÂ low, the risk of punctures is substantially higher.
- Check and correct theÂ inflation pressure at least once a month with a pressure gauge.
- It also helps to check the tyre for embedded foreign objects and toÂ remove them.
- Replace worn tyres.
