Just completed 800 miles on my new schwalbe marathon e plus tires. They are a fantastic tire for the giant explore. I run them at between 35-40 front and 40-45 rear. They perform very well in dry, wet and light sand. I found them to be very grippy in fast turns and running lower pressures absorb small bumps and provide a very nice ride. At 800 miles, not much wear is showing even though I’ve used the tires on paths and gravel.
