For mile eaters. Durano is the right choice for high mileage purposes, because no other racing tyre lasts longer. At the same time the Dual Compound offers greater grip for training on wet winter roads. It has a proven RaceGuard protection belt.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rafistole Super rapport qualité prix, bonne duré de vie
Super rapport qualité prix, bonne duré de vie cependant l'installation est un peu pénible à cause de la protection anti-crevaison et cette dernière n'est pas "si efficace" car j'ai réussi à crever plusieurs fois...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I've been using the 26 x 1.1 folding version on my commute MTB, which gets a daily beating around town. These tyres are the 26in version of the 700c training tyre, so I was bit concerned that they wouldn't be quite tough enough for year-round commuting but I've only had one puncture in 9 months, from a shard of glass that I guess would have punctured any tyre. They also have a decent ride quality, roll reasonably well, are light compared to other similar tyres (mine were about 270g each) and are soft and grippy. Wear is about average for a tyre of this type (so good but not amazing), and they do cut fairly easily but with not many quality slick tyre options for MTBs about, these tick a lot of boxes and would buy them again.

I use these tyres on my commuter. They hold up well to debris on the road (no punktures yet)and roll fast. However, the are prone to losing grip rather dramatically on wet asphalt when cornering or braking.

I have 700 x 28c and 26 x 1.1 and they both work very well. No experience with wear do far but it has a good grip and silent tire noise. They are light and roll lightly.

I bought a pair (700x23) of these having read good reviews. I can only say I'm disappointed. They're definitely grippy, almost a big draggy, but after less than 300 miles the rear is badly cut, gouged and wearing rapidly. It's back to Gatorskins for me - Gatorskins that weren't reviewed as well as the Duranos!
