Bullet Proof
I have many bikes in my quiver, and ride many thousands of miles each year.

One bike is my heavy touring rig ('full on' touring that I also commute to work with) which I had been using GatorSkins with good success (puncture and durability) but they are getting very pricey... very pricey. So I investigated some alternatives.

Tried the Serfas tires because the price was seemingly too good to be true, and the product descriptions was 'spot on' for heavy touring. What a mistake !!!!! I never got so many flats on any make of tire in my life. I would have days I would get 3 flats in one day. Pure garbage. Threw themn in the trash in frustration.. even my unused ones. It was liek every commute to work was a flat tire day.

Tried the Schwalbe Marathons and cannot be more pleased. I have since used these many thousands (yes thousands) of miles now and I have never (unheard of) gotten a flat. Many of my tours also take me out to 'no-mans land' off the beaten path... rocky roads, etc. Still no flats. These tires exceed all expectations and exceed GatorSkins. I have also recenly put a set on my tandem (removing the GatorSkins). They are also durable. I get about 4000+ miles out of a set. The fronts can go longer, but the rears the tread has worn down too far at that point due to the weight the rear of the tour bike takes.

The only negatives I might point out are;

These are a bear (I mean a real bear) to put on when 1st new. The rim bead is extreemly tight around the rim (but this could be a fnction of my rims).

Weight; These are no lightweight tires. But that is to be expected with this type of durability and load carrying capability.

Highly recommend these tires.

Hope this helps

15K mi w/ NO flats!
For 1.5 years I have had these on my family's commuting and touring bikes. We have had no flats at all with them, and in that time we have collectively ridden them for over 15,000 miles trouble-free, getting at least 3,000 miles out of the rear tires, more on the front. Touring, commuting, heavy loads, gravel: as long as Schwalbe doesn't mess with their formula, this is my tire for life!

PROS: No Flats, Durable

CONS: Difficult To Install, Heavy

BEST USES: Cross, Gravel, Touring, Road Biking

Good Tires
I have been using these tires for a few months now and am so pleased that I ordered a second pair to replace these when they wear out. These are my third set of tires I have used since purchasing my bike and their puncture resistance makes them stand out from the others. Even with built in puncture resistance, the other tires went flat every 2-3 weeks on average. With these tires, I have yet to get a single flat even when one had a nail embedded in it. When the nail was pulled it had not penetrated far enough to cause damage - amazing!

I also love the very bright reflective sidewalls - they are a great night time safety feature.

These tires are awesome. Admittedly, they are new, so I can't speak to their long-term durability, but all signs point to FANTASTIC. I was concerned that they would feel much heavier than what I was used to, but they didn't. I ride in a very biker-unfriendly city with lots of junk everywhere, and these tires have already proven their worth on my commutes. I love the reflective sides.

PROS: Attractive Design, Easy To Install, Durable

CONS: Heavy

BEST USES: Upgrade, Commutingcity, Casual Riding

Bombproof!
This tire is highly durable and trustworthy. I used it on a tandem (front at back wheels) that my stoker and I have ridden as a loaded touring bike (bike+cargo+rider=nearly 450 lbs), road riding, and "gravel grinder" rides up to 100 miles each. Although it's on the heavy side and is not as efficient (rolling resistance) as a pure road tire, a road tire would have never survived what we've put these through. Noteworthy that on a self-contained 1000 multi-day trip, we hit a sharp object that put a large cut in the tire (see picture). While the green guard protection layer was visible through the cut, the integrity of the tire was otherwise fine and we rode the remaining ~500 miles on that tire, plus another couple hundred more miles after the trip before we finally replaced it.

Does this tire have a wire bead or kevlar (folding) bead?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is the tire for a road bike on gravel. It is built for endurance not for speed.
