|Description||Due to the unique puncture protection, the weight of the Marathon Plus is a little high, but although the Marathon Plus weighs a couple of extra grams its rolling characteristics are excellent. The empirical laboratory test confirms what you can feel for yourself on the bike, the new Marathon Plus rolls noticeably lighter than other tyres with puncture protection belts of comparable thickness. The puncture protection on the Marathon Plus tyre is extremely elastic. This is important for both comprehensive protection and dynamic rolling. The high elasticity can only be achieved by using special rubber with a high proportion of natural rubber. Natural rubber is a valuable raw material and can only be recycled through very complicated processes, but Schwalbe like a challenge. The puncture protection in the new Marathon Plus is partly made of recycled natural rubber. Thanks to the new â€˜anti-agingâ€™ sidewalls, the Marathon Plus is now protected against premature aging which is often the result of adverse weather conditions or excessive stress in the case of insufficient air pressure. Schwalbe have developed this special anti-aging technology which makes the side walls of the Marathon Plus extremely resistant to ugly crack formation. At the same time, the Marathon lives up to its name with a new rubber compound: The Endurance Compound rolls for thousands of kilometres with excellent performance characteristics and low abrasion.|
