Excellent tyre for my retro Fixie. Rolls quite well, and seems to be tough and resilient to cuts ! (So far) They aret a little larger in cross section than I expected but this is not a critisism. Cream colour is just right. The grip is excellent and I'm hoping they are as reliable as other Schwalbe tyres I have used..

I have had these Durano tires on my (aluminum) road bike for about 600 miles now and they have done well. Whether these are the right option for a particular rider depends on what s/he is looking for in a tire. For me, I wanted comfort and puncture resistance as the two highest priorities, and these have done the job. No flats so far and they've helped resolve some hand vibrations I was having from previous tires. They are not the tires with the least rolling resistance and they aren't the quickest, slickest tires on the market, but that wasn't the purpose for me. I should note that a couple of times I have gone through a large pile of loose pea gravel on some roads while turning and nearly wiped out, so I don't think they'd be the best on dirt/gravel roads. They've done well on asphalt/cement though, even in a couple of slightly wetter situations. Overall, I would buy these again, and they seem to be holding up well.
