Details
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 tyre without protection.

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.
Puncture Resistant But Not Easy Rolling

ConsHigh rolling resistance
ProsPuncture resistance
I fitted these to my folding bike before cycling Land's End to John O'Groats. No punctures, but a lot stiffer & with a higher rolling resistance compared to standard Marathons.
Consequently I refitted standard marathons to my long distance bike & moved these to my occasional commuting bike, which is never used for more than 8 mile trips & it's all stop/ start, so rolling resistance is less important & puncture resistance more significant.
