Kojak, thanks for your input. I recently purchased my first set of Marathons (700Cx25 by the way, not Plus), and am enjoying the security of having low probability of flats. One thing I noticed about these tires, that I haven't experienced on any others, is that they drift very noticably when cornering. It was very disconcerting at first; now that I am used to it I just take corners more cautiously. I think the drift is an artifact of the relatively aggressive tread on the shoulders of the tire, and perhaps a characteristic of the casing construction (though I think this is less important).
So, if my input as a potential future customer is worth anything, I would like to see a similar Schwalbe tire that did not have this drifting characteristic when cornering.
