5.0 out of 5 stars a bit better piece of rubber... 18 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
Longer wear life, gets into rim smoothly, feels more puncture proof like no other 26 light and sleek tyre at this price range. So forget about continental's gatorskin or specialized all condition elite. Tested by courier riding in all weather conditions at 60-90 miles a day.

I have just fitted these Schwalbe Durano 26 X 1.10 tyres to my bike, and taken them for a spin down to my local bike shop and back. I was amazed at how much faster they are compared to the Schwalbe Marathon Plus (1.50) tyres they replaced. The ride back from the shop is slightly up hill, with the hill getting steeper towards the end.
With the Marathons, riding steady, I would travel at 15mph most of the way and drop to around 12-13mph towards the end of the hill. With the Duranos I found I comfortably travelled at 20mph, and was still going 19mph at the very top of the hill. It was raining at the time, and I found the tyres cornered really well and gave no feelings of losing grip. I have them pumped to 90 psi, which is 5 pound more than the minimum. Maximum being 115 pound.

Schwalbe claim the Durano tyres weigh 260g. I weighed them separately and the scales fluctuated between 258g and 259g on each tyre. That folding bead really makes a difference to the weight of these tyres.

Fitting of the tyres is fairly easy, but they would be deemed a snug fit. Just get the bead into the centre of the wheel all the way around, and the last bit is a breeze to get on. I pushed the last bit on with my thumbs. Schwalbe 12A inner tubes are the perfect fit for these tyres.

My wife rides an old Cannondale Super V mountain bike, that we have converted into a hybrid, hard tail, touring bike. She rides with a group of roadies, twice a week, on 20 mile road rides organized by our local bike shop. She first rode this bike with 50mm Schwalbe Big Apples, then 1.5 Michelin City and finally the 1.10 Duranos.

With the Big Apples she would usually become tailed off on the hills, and the rest of the group would have to stop and wait for her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Excellent Flat Protection, Weaker Than Expected Sidewalls 11 Oct 2013
By A. Aguilar - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I commute four times a week from Chicago to Northbrook for work (~33 mile round trip) and flats were an absolute pain with gatorskins; seriously, the quality just didn't match the hype which is was led me to the durano tires. I switched over in July (~3 months ago) and I haven't had a flat since which is amazing since I ride at higher pressure (110 psi) over multiple railroad tracks, potholes, tree droppings, and the various other items one would find along the Chicagoland roads. Unfortunately, I've already had to replace the front tire due to a sidewall slice I got when I was forced off the road onto the shoulder by a car. I hit the tire on the transition between the two at an odd angle which sliced the tire. Obviously, I'm not happy that I've had to replace the tire with less than 600 miles, but the bright side is that even with the slice to the tire, I was able to go 16 miles on it without it failing; would have been a long walk home.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good but less than perfect 22 Dec 2012

I have two of these tires, purchased 2-3 thousand miles apart, moving the worn one to the rear. The rear tire now has about 4,000 miles, maybe somewhat more. The cords aren't showing yet but the middle 3/4" of tread is worn flat and some cracking has developed on sidewall. I will probably retire the rear tire (no pun intended) before it reaches its claimed life of 6,000 miles because of the sidewall issue even if the tred hasn't worn down to the cords. The front tire has over 2,000 miles and looks nearly new. All mileage has been on mainly smooth, paved roads. I've had three flats total. It's a fairly fast, quiet tire (I ride a dual 26" LWB bent)and handles rough pavement well (inflated to 85 psi). For loaded touring, I would trade some the the speed and quietness for a wider tire on the rear with higher rated flat resistance. For local riding, this tire has done very well and I may buy it again.
