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.

folding bead
SpC compound
Performance Line
Race Guard protection
Reflective sidewalls
weigh 610 grams
30-70 PSI

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.

Best price I can find:

Good review here which compares the Dureme favourably to the other Schwalbes Marathons, namely the lighter Extreme and the heavier Mondial:
