Marathon Dureme the Extreme Long Runner

Schwalbe has now filled the gap in its Marathon Evolution Line tires with a versatile tire for the everyday rider. Its classic, versatile tread always makes it feel at home with its (claimed) superior handling and light running on the road.

The three-compound tread with Nano particles combines seemingly  unattainable top performance of grip, easy rolling and long life. The  three mixtures are arranged in such a way to work in harmony: Grip on  the shoulders, durability in the center tread and under this an extremely light rolling compound. Patented puncture protection provides further protection against  thorns, rocks and any other nasty objects waiting to put an end to  your ride.  The fibers of the High Density Guard are more densely  woven than any other material used in tires.

This is the only way to ensure such a high level of puncture protection in such a light tire, explained Holger Jahn, Schwalbe’s Technical Director.

On the tire sides a robust, but nevertheless light  SnakeSkin protects against lateral damage from sharp objects. Schwalbe calls this form of twin security “Double Defense”.

Due to its technically sophisticated, ingenious construction the Marathon Dureme is extremely light (from just 475 grams as a folding  tire) and at the same time very robust.

Marathon Dureme (Schwalbe) is available in bicycle stores from the end of 2009. Imported by Bike Box.
