Winter roads and trails need the right tires, especially when ice and snow seems to cover everything in sight. Schwalbe has been producing studded bicycle tires for years, and they have a proven tire for challenging winter riding conditions: The Marathon Winter Plus!
Like a snow tire for automobiles, the Marathon Winter Plus features a softer durometer rubber for the tread, offering improved grip on cold pavement compared to regular mountain bike tires made for summer riding. The tread pattern is designed for improved grip on slushy, frozen roads while still keeping rolling resistance relatively low. Shallow siping channels across the tread blocks improve grip on sand and road grit. The studs aren't aluminum, but are durable carbide alloy, ensuring many miles of performance.
Three layers of 67tpi nylon make up the Schwalbe Smartguard casing, giving the Winter Marathons excellent puncture resistance. Flat tires in the summer are bad enough! A reflective sidewall adds to a cyclist's visibility in poor light conditions.
- For a safer journey. You have full control on icy roads with the Marathon Winter Plus.
- Spikes work best on ice at the minimum pressure
- At max pressure, noise is reduced to a minimum on ice-free roads.
