I have run these for years on both my roadie an mtb, can get 3,000+ miles from them pretty easy (i commute)

Just bought a new pair for my mtb, they are the newer style "e bike compatible" an they are shite

rubber seems really soft, in the 3 weeks ive ran then ive had 8 punctures, 2 of those have ripped the tyre all the way through Shocked

Had a mate have 2 issues with Marathons. One was constant, endless stream of punctures. The other was zero grip when wet. I joked he'd be better off without any tyres. Yeah, so we tried that for a laugh. Did not end well. Gravel deep into kneecaps.

Conti 4 seasons ftw.
