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.
Note: It is impossible to guarantee that a flat will never happen, but the Marathon Plus has the best defence 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.
Most effective protection belt available for bicycle tyres. A substantial, 5mm thick layer of flexible, special india rubber offers durable protection. Works also for objects that lodge in the tread. Even a thumbtack wont harm it.

Thanks to its thick layer of springy sub-tread rubber - called SmartGuard - the Matathon Plus is virtually immune to through-the-tread punctures. Even drawing pins do not penetrate the rubber. The steel-beaded sidewalls are gumwall and are fairly tough too. Where the Marathon Plus scores over the Conti is its vast range of sizes - including 700 x 25mm. This takes 115psi (8bar) and it rolls suprisingly well, even if the handling is somewhat leaden. There's a Scotchlite strip and dynamo track on the sidewalls. Although it can be a little difficult to change these tyres, they are unlikely to puncture so this isn't a job you'll do that often.
Cycling Plus rating: 8/10 - "Almost impregnable. Heavy and hard to fit, but faster than you'd think"
