Schwalbe Marathon Plus HS 420 Wire Bead - Upgrade set of 2 x Tires

Schwalbe is a German company that makes many different types of tires. One such tire is the Marathon Plus which has been known in the bicycle commuting circles as the best tire for preventing punctures against thorns, tacks and glass etc. Marathons also last a VERY LONG time. 

On top of this, the rolling resistance is fantastic given the level of puncture resistance provided. The only drawback is the higher cost and slightly heavier weight.
