Maximum puncture protection for race machines! The Durano Plus has a SmartGuard belt for extremely effective protection against penetration punctures. The strong, highly elastic, special rubber layer is not as thick as in the Marathon Plus. Nevertheless it has a level of protection unparalled in racing cycle tyres.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stewit Lands End to John O'Groats the long way
I put a set of these on prior to completing Lands End to John O'Groats the long way (2,500 miles) no punctures. The same set then lasted all the training and another Lands End to John O'Groats trip (2,200 mile this time) with only 1 puncture. By this time the tyres were worn out and so was I.
In essence you cannot go wrong with these tyres, and as for rolling weight, I cycled up Winnats Pass and Holme Moss with a full kit in my panniers no problem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dialingwand Heavy, reliable slick touring tyre
I rode on a set of Durano Pluses for two years (the same set) - and had nary a puncture. They were ridden in road races, triathlons, and some long "unknown destination" journeys with them.
They've been on sharp, newly-gravelled roads, hard packed gravel, light loose gravel, and all manner of road surfaces with nary a puncture.
They're the tyre equivalent of tanks - and they weight almost just as much.
Still for a cyclosportive event where I wanted to finish without worry - instead of pick a faster tyre to be more competitive, this would be the one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Crispy Best all round tyre
I believe these to be the best all round training/commuting tyre on the market. They aren't puncture proof, but they seem to be better than anything else I've tried (including gatorskins). You can feel the protection layer which can be off-putting at first as it feels like you are 20 odd psi down. I get about 5000kms and 1 to 2 punctures out of one fitted to the rear and about 7000kms usually without a puncture on the front. I should mention that I ride on average to poor roads with a high amount of stones. I could push the wear out another 20% but the frequency of punctures increases very quickly after you can see the blue layer start to wear through. They hold pressure better than any tyre I've used before. Excellent value for us Aussies as these tyres retail for over $80 over here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimcat Excellent commuting tyre
I've been running these on my London commuting bike since the end of March and had my first puncture today. That's after roughly 1,000 miles over pretty average surfaces. They're not the fastest, but much more reliable than the Gatorskins I used before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very Durable
I have been using these tyres for about 2 years now and have only had 2 punctures. This is with atleast 100km a week on London roads, which can be quite bad at times (potholes, broken glass, etc).
They are advertised as a puncture resistent road tyre and that is exactly what it is. So 5 stars from me.
With the extra protection they are obviously not the fastest tyre so don't buy them for speed. But as an all-rounder they are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Fast, flatless, durable, but not grippy enough
I've used these tires for 3 seasons for city cycling. They have very low rolling resistance combined with perfect grip on dry asphalt. But even a light rain makes riding these tires very tricky. They tend to side-skid in any circumstance except dry and/or dusty road. Anyway, I had only one puncture for 4k kilometers and tire wear is barely noticeable after such a long distance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not Puncture Resistant
After two days of riding the tyre punctured. A piece of glass went straight through the outer layer and blue protective layer and punctured a thick inner tube. Not a very good first impression. I'll update after a few months.
It's heavy but to its credit it is grippy in the wet.

Are these tyres bulkier than others of the same size? I am asking because i want to know if I will have clearance for these tyres in 700x25. The supplier of my bike says up to 700x28 for most tyres , so will it be be ok with marathon plus in 700x25?
