I haven't had a good experience with these. Got them from Amazon and the first got a tear in 2 days on the side wall - i thought ok potential manufacturing defect but no response from CS. Second tyre gets so many punctures its painful. Finally changed to Michelin ones and haven't had a puncture in the last couple of months (route is the same). I know people love these (and that's why I bought them) but not everyone is satisfied...

I can’t argue with the hans dampf and magic Mary which has always been a downhill favourite, the nobby nic ain’t bad for winter rides it’s not as grippy as the hd and mm but for a basic off-road bike I’ve been happy enough, although I’ve started to find maxis tyres better for the bigger suspension enduro bike
Have these on my Scott and not great in the wet. Will be changing soon probably for high rollers.

A wider tyre will definately make a difference to grip, I like 2.25 width
but on really slippy sections like a wet wooden bridge or moss covered wet paving/cobbles cheaper wheels will always slip/slide, buying a super expensive super soft compound may keep you upright but won't last long at all.

I have friends who swear by Maxis ardent and these are always well rated too..Most bikes comes with narrower tyres such as 2.1"-2.25" and tend to be a summer tyre,in winter a 2.1" may well be too narrow a tyre for grip, most of my mates use hans dampf in winter and they tend to be 2.35" wideIn dry summer I like the smart sam by schwalbe also If you have a look at the schwalbe link above they grade tyres intoPurpose Xc, downhill, all mountain enduro etcAnd give 1-5* ratings for rolling, off-road grip, puncture protection, service lifeTerrain hardpack, mix, soft (muddy)So it's the trade off you need to decideThen remember wheel size is 26,27.5,29, and width usually between 2.1-2.35"And material dual compound (performance) or trailstar/pacestar which are premium quality but soft so wear quickerFinally you can choose the outer wall thicker will provide less sidewall damage/tears but weigh more, lightskin (regular), snakeskin, double defence, and finally whether they are tubeless easy, ie you tape up the spoke holes in the wheel, add a standalone valve, put in some sealant liquid and pump them up, no inner tube required



Wow, thanks for he detailed reply.

I'm all new to this and looking around I'm surprised at just how expensive mountain bike tyres can be.

The bike is only low end (Carrera Vulcan) and came with KENDA K1027 27.5X2.10. I don't know if changing the tyres will help but I'm just finding it hard to balance properly on the trails and get that front wheel going where I want it to go. Last week the front wheel just slipped out from me on a narrow wooden bridge section which was rather painful.

I've been playing with tyre pressures and while I don't want to spend too much as I'd rather save for a better bike, I thought tyres and pedals might be worth changing. Tbh though the main issue is my lack of skill

These are brilliant. Tyre/tube inflates instantly which is fantastic if you're against the clock, out in rubbish weather, or riding in a group. Inflates to far more pressure (circa 120psi) than my puny arms can manage with a mini pump too.

Yes they get cold, and yes you need to deflate and reinflate when you get home. Small price to pay for me.

Marathon Plus' are great commuting tires for London. Yes, they weigh a little extra over other tires...BUT, they will get you to work where others will puncture. & the tread lasts an incredibly long time. So it's basically a fit and forget kind of setup (just remember to run them at a high PSI to reduce the rolling resistance).
I am sure you'll be very happy with them. Marathon's are a commuter favourite - and this is just a slightly heavier but significantly more puncture proof version of that tire
wenttoabetterplace

I've done almost 11,000 miles of loaded touring on my standard … I've done almost 11,000 miles of loaded touring on my standard Marathon's. They are pretty threadbare now -- but they are superb tires.I also bought a pair of Marathon Plus Tour's - which are even more robust than the standard Plus'. I kind of regret buying them though, as I just prefer the standard Marathon's for my uses,,,which is why they are now sitting, redundant, in my garage! (Plus Tour's would be my choice for commuting around London etc as they are pretty much impervious to any kind of punctures).*Edit - my tires are actually Schwalbe Marathon Plus' in a 26x1.75 config. If anyone is interested, I'll be sticking them on the HUKD for sale page tomorrow evening.

Terrible to get onto your wheel. Have all the tools and help.



3 teaspoons make the perfect 'free' tool if your stuck, they hook round the spokes to lever a Tyre off or on.

And there are benefits of increased wheel weight, depending on your riding style.
Watch out I have these and they are sooooo heavy!
Guys I am a somewhat occasional and amateur road cyclist. My current tyres on my mountain bike are 26X10 and 26×1.75 559. I was looking to replace these with road tyres. Would these do as replacements ?
Top class puncture resistance. Spa Cycles of Harrogate have an instructional video on the best way to fit them. i have them on DT Swiss TK 540s and they go on without tools. 3652 miles across USA without a puncture.
Fwiw - I didn't get on with these at all... I'm 194lb/88kg/14st and these are rated at 100psi (for the 25s) which I found waaaay too squidgy for my commute. I had tried Bontrager Race Lites as well but theyt weren't tough enough. I'm now on Durano Plus which seem to be doing the job. Roll fast, up to 160psi (!) so I can run them about 110-120 and puncture resistance seems good so far.

In summary, if you race your commute, I'd avoid these. If you take it easy, they may be ok for you.

btw - is that video of the old boy with the pedal straps? Once you learn how to put these tyres on, no others will ever be as hard!!!! lol!!!!

Fitted mine, wasn't much of a hassle following the spa cycles video on youtube. Key thing is to not inflate the inner tube much, and when putting the second bead inside the rim, to push the bit you've already got as far in and pull it around to make enough slack to get the last bit on. The video probably explains it far better.

These are clearly much thinner than the tyres of the same size that came with my bike. Glad I didn't go with 32c like I was tempted to. No adjustments needed for mudguards

I thought the profile was a function of the width. At least guides on the internet suggest tyres of the same width have the same rolling radius (for cycle computer setup). Guess I will find out tonight when I collect and fit.
My 12 years old Dawes hybrid is nicely worn in to my riding comfort ...
The original tyres were looking like they were starting to perish,
then a nail in the back tyre persuaded me to take a chance on replacing them
with a pair of Schwalbe Marathon Plus.

I'm now getting on for 17 stone, so I pumped 'em up to max 85 psi.
just to be on the safe side (_;)

I immediately started feeling every minor bump and judder in the road surface texture,
so bad that I needed to buy a pair of padded cycle gloves
and double up on the gel covers on my saddle oO

I may now need to consider a better sprung saddle, or even a suspension saddle post ???

At least in the short term I'm going to let these new tyres naturally deflate
over the next few weeks,
to see if they settle in at a more comfortable ride.
Then check the psi to establish if it's not so low as to risk damage to the tyre walls ????:|

But definitely going to persevere with these Schwalbe Marathon Plus.

Lands End to John O'Groats then over 5000 miles no punctures on a hybrid. A heavy tyre but seems bullet proof. Used a cheap (£8 ) Michelin tyre on my road bike and got a puncture on the same route to work once a week (no I don't mean I go from Lands End to work in Scotland....).
Highly recommended.

Great tyres. Look at Spa Cycles website for video which gives easy fitting instructions. I can now put them back on without tools.

Will these fit a proper bike?


If your 'proper bike' has wheels that will take a 700x23c tyre then yes!

Nope this won't fit a motorbike, only a road racing bike.
I bought this exact product recently from Service Champions. I'm pretty pleased so far (about a month in). I've done London to Brighton on them and several commutes and no problems yet.
Customer service and delivery was good. Great price. I'll give this heat. Its a decent price rather than outstanding, but certainly hot.
