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.
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
