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.

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.
