Smartguard™ is a solid, 5 mm thick layer of highly flexible special rubber under the tread (shown in blue) which provides effective protection against pinch flats, embedded objects, even small thumbtacks. The Marathon Plus Evolution Wheelchair Tire with SmartGuard™ combines the comfort and light running of a pneumatic tire with the puncture protection of a urethane tire.
Wheelchairs with black tires? Schwalbe has made it possible. We developed a special Black’n Roll compound that does not leave unsightly marks on indoor floors (black tread models only).
The very best possible using the highest grade materials and latest technology.
24 x 1in. (25-540) Schwalbe Marathon Plus Evolution Wheelchair Tire Purchase Notes
This is a pneumatic tire and requires an inner tube. Choose to add an inner tube with a schrader valve, or with a presta (French) valve when ordering (a schrader valve is the standard bicycle / car tire type valve, and the presta valve is the long slender valve with a plunger under the cap that unscrews). It is best practice to replace the inner tube when replacing a tire since inner tubes can exhibit wear and fatigue especially at the seams with prolonged use.
Marathon Plus Tires, September 21, 2023 By William White (Riverside, CA)(Verified)
I ran these tires twice before, then switched to a Kenda tire with flat protection to try because of the price (they are half the price) and suffered several flats. One flat was some kind of staple and two other flats were just a tube blowouts. Now I'm back on these and all is right. All of the stuff people complain about (tough to change, heavy, expensive) is all true BUT knowing the likely hood of getting a flat tire is now much less which is great for my peace of mind. Its a real bitch to get a flat when your out and about! BTW my WC is a super light weight carbon fiber Motion Composites wheelchair.
The Best Tire, May 23, 2023 By Mikey B (Seattle, WA)(Verified)
I feel compelled to share my 30 plus years in a chair and tell you these are without a doubt the best tires I have ever run. Yes they are heavy but they roll easily, the sidewalls don't irritate my hands, and the tread pattern gives me plenty of stick. They last 8-10 months with daily use. I purchased the reflective stripe model and my coworkers immediately commented they look like old-school whitewalls!
You can't go wrong with these
Simply the best tire you can buy, June 30, 2022 By Mark (Sacramento, CA)(Verified)
Beefier design with higher pressure makes it easy to roll. A real difference but for the price it should be - arrived quickly too!
A bit too pricey, March 30, 2022 By Matt (Salt Lake City, UT)(Verified)
After getting several flat tires recently, I took the plunge and bought these. They are much thicker than the Primo tires I was running but wow now that I have them I think the price is a bit too high. I can by 3 sets of the Primo tires for the price of one set of these. Don't get me wrong great tire for sure, awesome even. But 3 times more expensive!
good but heavy, July 28, 2017 By Michael (HB, CA)
I bought these tires because of all the positive things I''ve heard. I agree these tires seem like a quality product. On the negative, these are HEAVY tires making my rims more cumbersome to handle. Hopefully they last a long time
