16 x 1.5 wire bead Marathon Racer. A 235 gram tire that inflates up to 85psi.
The fastest Marathon ever. Again! Now even lighter. Now even faster. Pure skin side walls and the new Speedgrip compound have further reduced weight and rolling resistance. Everything is optimized for speed. Pure dynamics: the low weight is noticeable every time you pull away. A RaceGuard belt protects against punctures.
Note: Skin-sidewalls are fast but sensitive. Always be certain to check for correct air pressure.
I've commuted on Primo Comets (flat-prone), Kenda Kwests (slightly better but heavier & slower) & Schwalbe Marathons (excellent), but the Marathon Racer is lighter, faster, & at least as flat-resistant.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
