The flat-less tyre. Schwalbe's best selling model. The most puncture resistant pneumatic tyre there is. In addition to the superior puncture protection it features many inner values:

- Rolling Resistance: The patented, 5mm thick SmartGuard layer, when compared to all generic products, has a significant advantage in rolling resistance.
- Recycling: Also in the SmartGuard, Schwalbe use a proportion of recycled C50 rubber from old latex products.
- 'Anti-Aging' Side Wall: It now lasts much longer before developing unsightly cracks when subjected to use with too low air pressure.
- E-Bike Ready: Due to its great properties Marathon Plus is an ideal choice for E-Bikes (E-25). The main sizes are approved and tested for E-Bikes up to 50km/h.
- Flat-Less with Marathon Plus: Only Marathon Plus tires make your bicycle flat-less. The 5mm thick puncture guard protects even against thumbtacks.

NOTE: It is impossible to guarantee that a flat will never happen, but the Marathon Plus has the best defense against everyday tyre wreckers such as glass, flints or metal shards. Use a pressure gauge to adjust tyre pressures as the common 'thumb check' is insufficient due to the special construction of the Marathon Plus.

Consquite heavy.
ProsBrilliant Puncture resistance
My go to tires on all my Touring or City bikes and have proved fantastic at avoiding punctures. They are a bit more difficult to fit on a Brompton but once you get the hang of it they go on eventually.
Good puncture resistance

ConsBit Of a faff to fit
Pros1 puncture in 2000 miles
Spend a lot of time commuting round some not to clever parts of London. I don't want to get stranded with a puncture. These are my 'go to tyre'. When new the taller tread on the rear wheel makes folding more difficult.

I have yet to fit my tyre to the bike but it certainly feels as though it will resist punctures better than my Kojaks. Price excellent.

Consin the 16 inch or 20 inch an unholy nightmare to fit..
ProsExtremely Durable,Reliable ,The most Puncture Resistant tire available
The Most Puncture Resistant Tire Money can buy.Period.
It has a 5 mm anti puncture belt which is responsible for preventing flats.Yes, there is a slightly higher rolling resistance than a light racing tire.But its horses for courses.
If you commute to work by Bike and you Dont want flats this Is Your tire.You Can still go Fast on it.Not as Fast as a super light road tire.But with a super light road tire you Will be spending a Lot of time replacing a punctured inner tube..
The Schwalbe Marathon Plus tire is a fit and forget tire.
Generally you Wont flat once its fitted.
Extremely High durability.8000 - 9000 Miles is par for the course.A Word of Warning.In the 16 inch size they will be an Unholy nightmare to Let your friend local bike shop fit it.In the wet they are not as grippy as one would like.
So take it easy when its raining..
Overall, for Cyclists Fed up to the back teeth of punctures this tire is a Godsend.It does exactly what it says on the tin.
Fantastic tyre!

ConsA bit harder to get onto rims than normal Brompton tyres
ProsTough and supremely puncture resistant
These tyres may have higher rolling resistance than some Brompton alternatives, but I'll guarantee that a flat tyre has even more! And, with these, punctures are more or less a thing of the past. If you want to go fast on your Brompton you should probably look elsewhere, but if you value reliability and long-term durability (especially on your daily commute when you don't want to be faffing about mending punctures - particularly in the hard to remove Brompton rear wheel) then I heartily recommend these. In ten years of using Marathon Plus tyres, I've had two punctures - one an enormouse thorn through the side wall (really bad luck this one) and the second a long and jagged bit of bottle glass. Apart from that, nothing in 15,000 miles of commuting!! These are my default fit to a Brompton.
So far so ...

ConsVery slightly tighter fit.
ProsBetter quality
Purchased as a replacement for Brompton's standard tyres which get a little flimsy after a while. Fairly easy to fit providing you get the bead well into the opposite well and use a little soap. Not noticed any huge difference in rolling resistance, seem to be averaging similar journey times for similar effort but steering was lighter and took a little while adjusting to. Overall, very happy, these seem much more robust.
Good Tyre

ConsNo significant cons
ProsExcellent quality.
Bought as a replacement for a damaged standard marathon.
The "plus" version enjoys a higher puncture resistance but suffers higher rolling resistance as a consequence. The higher rolling resistance is only really noticable at higher speeds on good tarmac. If one's use is over imperfect surfaces and/or in a low to medium speed, urban environment, I suspect that any difference would be difficult to gauge. So best not use these tyres for racing on a perfect surface.

I once purchased a secondhand Brompton with very old, or possibly original marathon tyres. (So potentialy 14 years old!) I eventually changed them as the tread was starting to degrade.
