SCHWALBE MARATHON PLUS
The staff at Curbside all ride different bicycles. They find comfort in different saddles. Some tour, others race, and many choose to simply commute. But, at the end of the day, there's one thing they can always agree on: the necessity of a durable tire and this dear friends is the KING!
The Schwalbe Marathon Plus is the most puncture resistant pneumatic tire on the market today and is copied (badly) by the likes of Specialized. The tire has a 67tpi Kevlar casing then a substantial 5mm of special india rubber SmartGuard protection an anti aging side wall that wont crack even at low pressure and a rubber outer compound that not only rolls easily but actually expels any items that penetrate it .
Even a thumbtack won't harm it. Unless your tires are shot with armour-piercing rounds, rest easy.

Schwalbe Company History: Schwalbe found its start in 1973 when founder Ralf Bohle started importing Korean bicycle tires to Germany. Using "Swallow" brand tires, Bohle opted to use the German translation of the original brand - "Schwalbe". Since founding, Schwalbe has built a reputation internationally for quality and durability, offering some of the best puncture-resistant tires on the market.
