MARATHON SUPREME / High-End Touring Tire

MARATHON SUPREME

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

MARATHON SUPREME

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

An extremely densely woven fabric made from Vectran protects the new top of the line touring tire - Marathon Supreme. Its High Density Vectran Guard (HD-V) uses a patented weaving technology more puncture resistant than any other textile used in bicycle tire technology. The tire is extremly light and sets a new benchmark in terms of wet-grip adhesion.

The designers wanted to create something exceptional and conceived the tire as a complete entity, as if made from a casting. The profile extends stylishly onto the sidewall, without the usual dynamo strip.
