Found these the other week. So thought it would be worth posting as its cheaper on Amazon than Tannus Armour website.

Hope it helps someone out.

They also sell other bike sizes


Recommended to get one size down inner tube from the one you currently use to help it fit the Armour in.

Lol we can only assume they also have a range of male and female tyres. The male ones must have skulls on them or something
Never heard of these, but never heard of a bad thing about Schwalbe Marathon tyres, which these seem to be mimicking, and are cheaper: amazon.co.uk/Schwalbe-Marathon-Performance-Greenguard-Endurance/dp/B004T0GCYU/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=schwalbe%2Bmarathon%2Bplus%2B700x35c&qid=1589289743&sprefix=schwalbe%2Bmarathon&sr=8-3&th=1&psc=1

Anyone have any actual experience of either of these tyres? I’m after some 700c x 28 for my road bike, but there’s no good deals around at the moment.

The Tannus Armour is the inside of the inner tube and tyre so its not a tyre it's to stop anything going through the tyre to the inner tube and helps with having lower psi too.
any point to using these with the Continental Gator Hardshell tyres?

They're at least as expensive as Hardshell tyres, which begs the question

Used them since winter do 10-20 miles a day and not had a puncture since. Rolling resistance seems a bit worse but I can live with that!

exactly-worse rolling resistance for an insert that costs almost as much as tyres that are highly puncture resistant (like Conti's Gator Hardshell)... so what's the point of this product?

Oh, seems a ridiculous product and massively over-priced then. It’s cheaper to buy a Swalbe Marathon tyre which has this built in. Cold from me.

Lots of thorns on my route that would go through the kevlar belted tyres I've used, slime would get me home but a pain to patch the tube. I don't run tubeless so never tried the ones you've mentioned and the rolling resistance is minimal, not a big deal for me. So if you commute etc and want to get where you're going without a flat and your not timing yourself they offer a bit of peace of mind

Not the same the band in the tyre is very thin compared to them. I used swalbe tyres with kevlar bands in then and got loads of punctures from thorns going straight through. I still use the tyres but get no thorns puncturing the tubes. When I last changed my tyre there were thorns in the tyre and armour but they couldnt get through to the tube.

I used the original Marathon and hate them, never had a puncture but they offered terrible grip - prone to locking up under braking and I didn't trust them to get me around a corner at any speed.
I've heard that the newer Marathon Plus and Marathon Ultra are much better and they come highly recommended by cyclists whose opinions I trust, but I couldn't recommend the originals (which your link is for) for anything other than very gentle cruising.

I currently use Conti GP Urbans - haven't had a puncture since I fitted them and they stick to the road like glue. They're available in 35mm only but use the same compound as the Conti GP5000 which is available in a range of sizes for road bikes.
The downside is that the sticky rubber means they wear faster so I expect to change them more often than Marathons.
not for Brompton?

I think you can but via their website. If you use #tannusrider you will get 20% off. It was on their Facebook page.

I have the Schwalbes on one of my bikes as like you I read the good reviews

while im generally happy with them for their rolling resistance & puncture protection for me they were VERY "slippy" when I first put them on the bike

I was finding my back wheel was far too often sliding about all over the place when I tried to brake so I had to reduce the tyre pressure a lot to try to reduce that - also as the tyre has worn in that has also helped alleviate the problem to some degree too - however I still dont trust the gripiness as much as my last set which were continentals

it makes me wonder whether you may have to sacrifice some grip to get decreased rolling resistance

had the same thing happen (see previous comment)
Absolutely the worst tyres to fit, also not compatible with many rims, absolutely dreadful product
I can also vouch for the schwalbe marathons. I've done a couple thousand miles on mine after having 3 punctures in about 500 miles before. They have slightly high rolling resistance and are an absolute arse to fit, but otherwise they're indestructible
