Gravel/Commuting Tyre

Looking for a bit of advice... I recently upgraded to a Cannondale Topstone 105 (very pleased with the bike!) which is shod with WTB Riddler TCS Light (700 x 37c) tyres. I'm finding the tyres not to be as puncture resistant as I would like for my daily commutes, which is 15km each way over the usual crappy roads, with a bit of towpath thrown in.

Looking at changing the tyres for the Schwalbe Marathon Plus Smartguard Rigid Road Tyre...

  • Firstly, anyone got any feedback on this tyre?
  • Secondly - width - 35c or 38c - the bike will take either, but not sure which would be best for the job?

    Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks, James
