Got a pair of these beauties for sale, one short dry ride only, c/w original packaging.
ETRTO size 50-662 aka 28 x 2.0
Top of the range and very practical 2" wide 29er touring tyre, these are also perfect for fast commuting if you want to keep punctures to a minimum and be visible - they are reflective - and still stick with fat tyres.
They eat up potholes and are great on tow paths too.
Will fit a 'normal' 700c tourer/hybrid provided you have wide enough rims and sufficient clearance.
Race Guard protection
weigh 610 grams
Not to be confused with other cheaper sizes of Marathons, these are quite hard to find and cost me an absolute fortune! However, I find I more often use/need my full 2.3" knobblies or my thinner hybrid 38c tyres on my Surly Karate Monkey.

Good review here which compares the Dureme favourably to the other Schwalbes Marathons, namely the lighter Extreme and the heavier Mondial:http://www.whileoutriding.com/bike-talk ... -offerings
