Schwalbe Marathon Plus Evolution Wheelchair Tyre
The Marathon Plus has established its reputation as the absolute benchmark of puncture-proof pneumatic wheelchair tyres. The all-new version has been engineered to provide further improved rolling resistance, achieved by a revised and dynamic profile.
The Marathon Plus is lined with a SmartGuard protection belt. Formed from natural recycled rubber, it is often stated as the most efficient belt on the market. The 5mm solid layer is notably flexible, providing enduring confidence, agility and protection. The Marathon Plus is essentially immortal, proving to outmatch the threat of glass, thumbtacks, nails etc, even deeply embedded objects! Alongside these numerous strengths, the anti-aging sidewall has been designed to endure typical overloading from insufficient or improper inflation.
Schwalbe is the only tyre manufacturer to design pneumatic tyres specifically for wheelchair users. The Marathon Plus boasts many innovative features:
2Grip. Hand-friendly tyres. Side walls are completely smooth, gliding gently past the hands. Patent protected and standard on all Schwalbe wheelchair tyres.
Flat-less. SmartGuard wheelchair tyres combine the comfort and efficiency of pneumatic tyres with the puncture protection of Polyurethane tyres.
Black’n Roll. Wheelchairs with black tyres? No skids on the floor? Schwalbe has made it possible. To avoid unsightly marks, a specially developed compound has been implemented. This material does not shed upon braking or loss of tyre traction. Additionally, the upgraded compound is far more robust, providing larger lifespan and longevity.
