Riding through broken glass:
The new Marathon Plus with - SMART GUARD - makes this possible thanks to the highly flexible, special rubber layer.
The revolutionary feature of this new puncture protection system is due to its 'super-ball' characteristics.
The Smart Guard special rubber protection belt is so flexible that it has no effect on rolling resistance, whereas traditional puncture protection systems increase the rolling resistance of the tyre.
The approximate 200g extra weight compared with the 'Classic' Marathon is hardly noticeable in everyday use.
Rolls as easily as a tyre without a protection belt.
Protects reliably against everyday tyre killers.
Pointed or sharp objects stand little chance of penetrating the tyre.
Due to its high elasticity, any sharp object that tries to penetrate Smart Guard is actively pushed back out.
In addition to the tread and carcass thickness, five millimeters of belt brings the total thickness to about 8mm.
Shards, flints and glass, which embed in the tread, will not penertrate.
