The staff at Curbside all ride different bicycles. They find comfort in different saddles. Some tour, others race, and many choose to simply commute. But, at the end of the day, there's one thing they can always agree on: the necessity of a durable tire. The crafty German experts over at Schwalbe produce exactly that. They pair a strong nylon weave with thick Kevlar lining, the synthetic material used in bullet-proof vests, for maximum puncture resistance.
The Schwalbe Marathon is the brand's most popular tire for city, touring and commuting. Sitting just below the Schwalbe Marathon Plus in terms of puncture protection but streets ahead in terms of value.
The “Anti-Aging” sidewall can withstand the typical cracking that results from overloading due to insufficient inflation pressure for much longer.

Schwalbe Company History: Schwalbe found its start in 1973 when founder Ralf Bohle started importing Korean bicycle tires to Germany. Using "Swallow" brand tires, Bohle opted to use the German translation of the original brand - "Schwalbe". Since founding, Schwalbe has built a reputation internationally for quality and durability, offering some of the best puncture-resistant tires on the market.
