The Marathon has become the absolute benchmark for puncture-proof pneumatic tires on the wheelchair. Now the all-new version comes again with improved rolling resistance. In addition, the SmartGuard protection belt is made from a proportion of recycled natural rubber. The “anti-aging” sidewall construction can withstand the typical overloading from insufficient inflation pressure for much longer. Also with the dynamic new profile and new look label. Black tyres. Skid free. The first black tyres that leave no skid marks on indoor floors and made possible by the revolutionary Black´n´Roll compound, developed in Scwalbe´s labs. Flat-less with Smartguard, hand friendly with 2grip.
- SmartGuard Puncture Protection – Punctures are a memory. The SmartGuard-layer made from a flexible, special rubber offers particular resistance to shards of glass and flints. Even a thumbtack cannot penetrate this protective layer. The SmartGuard belt does not increase rolling resistance. The MARATHON PLUS rolls as easily as a tire without protection.
- 2Grip Sidewalls – Kind to hands: A completely smooth sidewall. Hands glide smoothly past the tire. 2Grip is a patented tread design.
- Black ‘n’ Roll – World exclusive! Black tires that leave no unsightly marks. The new Black´n´Roll compound makes the impossible – possible: Wheelchairs with black tires. The extremely durable compound is far more abrasion resistant than ordinary grey colored tires. So the lifecost of these tires is much lower due to a much longerlasting tread.
