Great value and performance. Rode nearly 1500miles without a single puncture! Including a London to Paris jaunt. Very impressed hence why I bought another set.
First off, as always a great service from Merlin. These were on offer for purchasing two tyres - great value.
The tyres themselves, well, I have changed from the std Lugano tyres for these Duranos. Same size but these are a folding tyre so lighter, roughly 200g a pair.
Grip wise, I feel that they inspire confidence to push the bike through tight bends, I've not used them in the rain yet - surprisingly for the British climate!
I've blown them up to 120psi and this seems about right.
Not had a puncture yet, I've covered around 150miles since fitting them and ridden on roads, tracks and pot holed back roads.
I wouldn't expect any just yet, but they aren't showing any signs of wear or cutting from small sharp stones.
All in a well recommended tyre.
A true 23mm tyre with adequate puncture protection. Light, fast-ish and in 1000miles no flats. The rubber is cut and scarred in places showing that it has dealt with a normal amount of road debris, absorbed it, but still kept the tube intact and protected. I was so impressed I bought another set as direct replacements for when the originals eventually wear out. I even used them on the turbo trainer and they stood up well enough to the heat and friction with the only issue being making sure that the roller is tight enough against the tyre to prevent slipping/spinning as this causes the contact patch to overheat and start shedding rubber. At the price offered by Merlin I recommend the Durano S as a good all-round tyre.
Excellent tyres. Fast, durable and reasonably light. I would highly recommend.
