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.

Using this tyre for my front wheel on my Hybrid daily commute. Total of about 7,000km and it's now truly worn down. No problem at all at 100 PSI for 7 months of daily commute and recreational rides.
Guess what I replaced the worn tyre with? Yup, another Durano 700-28C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent Road Tire on my CX Bike
I've been running Schwalbe Marathon Racers (700x35C) on my Cyclocross Bike for training and road use and have been very happy with them, 2500 km and virtually no sign of wear and no punctures. I just switched over to the Durano 700x28C because I wanted something a little faster on the road. The Marathon Racers have been excellent but the Durano is 2-3 km/h faster on average, the pair is 170g lighter, handling is improved and I can't discern much difference in ride quality. The Durano has the constant radius profile of a racing tire with much quicker "turn in" and handling compared to the Marathon Racer, will hold a much tighter line, and has better road feel. The Marathon Racers were very good but when pushing hard on high speed descents the Durano does a better job of letting you know what the front end is doing without being twitchy. For climbing the lower weight is noticeable and they spin up faster than the Marathon Racers. I ride on a fair amount of chip sealed roads and the Marathon Racer was very good at sucking up the vibration from that rough surface. The Durano is not quite as good but I don't feel a big comfort penalty and can run them at the lower end of the pressure range if need be without giving anything measurable away in speed. These are supposed to be a very durable tire, we'll see how that goes, but at the moment I'm very pleased at seeming to have found a high performance, high mileage, training tire that is still comfortable for long hours in the saddle over rough roads compared to my race bike.
