The forefather of all touring tyres: the Schwalbe Marathon Wired Tyre
The Schwalbe Marathon is the forefather of all high-quality Touring tyres and the undisputed original. The puncture protection belt of the Schwalbe Marathon wired tyre has been optimised and the GreenGuard has been developed for a safe ride. This 3 mm thick layer of highly elastic natural rubber is made of one third recycled material, so that the soul of the Schwalbe Marathon is also green.
The sidewall of the Schwalbe Marathon wired tyre is specially designed to withstand the stresses of lower air pressure and effectively prevents ugly aging cracks (anti-aging). In addition, the Endurance Compound noticeably increases performance and durability.
Guidelines for replacing E-bike components:
Before you replace components on your E-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked E-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

The load capacity shown refers to only one tyre. To check whether the tyre is suitable for your total weight (rider + bike), this value can be doubled, since the weight is then distributed over two tyres.
- proven, high-quality Touring tyre
- with reflective stripes
- 3 mm insert made of highly elastic natural rubber (GreenGuard), one third of which is made of recycled latex products
- anti-aging sidewall: withstands typical overloading caused by insufficient air pressure much longer
- Endurance Compound for extra durability

Excellent quality for intensive use.
The Marathon Compound. For highest durability.
Same operating principle as used by the SmartGuard but only approx. 3 mm thick. One third of the highly elastic natural rubber is obtained from recycled latex products. Schwalbe has developed its own process technology for this purpose: In the Schwalbe factories, old products made of natural rubber (such as gloves, tubes, etc.) are shredded and returned to production as the basic material via several process steps.
Twin describes an additional rubber coating on the sidewall that protects from cuts and allows a uniform colouring.
E-Bike Ready 50
For fast E-bikes a special approval of the tyres is necessary. Tyres with ECE-R75 approval valid throughout Europe are the simplest solution here. All Energizer tyres carry the test mark and are approved for vehicles up to 50 km/h.
E-Bike Ready 25
Recommended for pedelecs with pedal support up to 25 km/h. The law does not prescribe special tyres here, but with pedelecs the loads and average speeds are usually higher than with normal bikes.
