Mr Logan Just about squeezed these into an old frame designed for 22-23mm tyres but soooo comfy. Supple carcass and grippy even on first ride.
Simon These have been my go to tyre for my commuter and winter bikes for the last few years. A good balance of protection and speed. And Merlin always seem to come up trumps with a brilliant price.
Mr Wilkie Excellent tyre, much better than the other Schwalbe tyre it replaced. Despite the reinforcing bead this was not difficult to fit even into the 23mm rim.
Grant Top quality tyre. Easy to fit, durable, well protected and rolls pretty fast. I’ve been buying Schwalbe for years now and haven’t since found a need to look to other brands.
ya I've had these tyres for a few weeks now. Am very happy with them. They've got good grip and are thick without being heavy. Would definitely recommend!
Daniel Fitted really easily without levers - miles completed so far have been sure footed with good grip. Would recommend
Pete Bargain. Thin tyre walls, we'll see how long they last. Can't be any worse than the continental gp4000's whose tyre walls are weak and are more than twice the price.
Mr Rowe Amazing value for a reliable winter tyre.
Mr Mouland Great tyres, roll well and pretty puncture proof.
donald Good tires, perform well for general road riding; nice price point.
Mr Learner First ride on them today. Handling and grip is good, though I don't think they're as comfortable as the Grand Prix 4 Seasons I've ridden for the past five years. At about half the price, though, seem like a good set of tires for a backup set of wheels.
MARK Just a couple of rides so far, but seem great for the money....good grip and seem to have improved the handling of my Roubaix 👍
Ms Despinic Amazing! Cheaper tire, but very sturdy!
Tom I'd rather the "Schwalbe One's" but these are not too bad. Pretty easy to fit and durable. Don't offer quite the same level of grip but do last longer
Mr Clyde Feels fast and durable.
TOM Excellent balance of rolling resistance, longevity, comfort and grip. Noticeably livelier than the Durano Plus, and so far, as good regarding punctures. Highly recommended.
Adam I chose for the good price/performance ratio. It is lighter, thinner than my previous tire. It is better to ride with. For its durability and puncture resistance, I can comment only later.
Thomas Got a pair of Schwalbe Duranos after using Continental 4000 SII tires for almost four years. Installed them on my road bike and tried them for a 30km break-in ride. Feels a tiny bit slower, but thats probably because of the puncture-protection weighing the wheel down. Speedy after the initial push. Great price for a great tire. Got them in about 6 days (UK to Southeast Asia).
Mr Nicholas Have been using these tyres for quite a while & cannot fault them in any way. Used on Melbourne to Adelaide Charity ride with no hassles.
Jonty Having been a Conti fan for years and using 4seasons and GP4000s I thought I might try something different and cheaper for the commuter. I have to say the comfort is great and they seem to roll well. Only used for 150miles so far so cannot comment on durability but for the price they are right up there with conti but loads cheaper!
Aaron This is a good tire. Good in the turns. Good in the straights. Not too hard, but I do roll below the recommended pressure, and no punctures yet.
Moz Very pleased with these tyres. An excellent all rounder with a balance of grip, durability and superb puncture resistance
Mr Moore Only done a couple of hundred miles so far but no problems & no punctures yet. Easy to fit on my wheels (by hand, no tools required) but took a little bit of trouble to ensure they were seated evenly and all of the kinks from being folded were out. Just a little bit heavy, as you would expect for extra puncture resistance.
Mr Glover 5 stars from me, I had some wider off road tyres before for the canal rides, however switched to the roads now and these tyres have made a big difference on my rides in, good rolling speed and grippy too. I use them for commuting into work and would recommend these. Only had them for 3 weeks but no punctures or complaints as yet.
GARY Perfect, easy to get on and with dual compound and raceguard, Schwalbe have a winner. Especially with Merlins good pricing!
Mr B Great service, quick and reliable. I find these tyres much better than other winter tyres. They feel subtle and surefooted on the road, rain or shine. A great winter or commuting tyre.
Alan Love these tyres on my all weather bike. I've tried others over the years but now only use these. For what they are and the grip they give in all weathers they are still pretty light all things considered.
Mr Tutmaz Third set of Duranos and more than 20k km. Only three punctures. Good grip on dry or wet. In short, they are great for training and everyday use.
Ian Durable, tough & good grip - my go to tyre for trouble free commuting & winter training
James Easy to install compared to other tighter fitting tires like Contis. Smooth rolling, and durable, just what you would want in a Winter tire.
Olonan Grips well and not prone to flat
Kanga Excellent all round tyre, great look and handle exceptionally well. Delivery from Merlin Cycles to Australia second to none with a great delivery update available for tracking products.
Constantin I noticed that the ride is more comfortable on Duranos as opposed to Continentals that I had before. Overall, very satisfied with the purchase.
chris 500 miles on my front tyre, no problems to report, nice and grippy. unfortunately, the rear tyre got a 20mm cut all the way through from a massive lump of sharp glass after around 150 miles on a wet night ride. i think this was down to bad luck rather than a problem with the tyre though. Replaced with another the same. A bit of a sod to fit initially compared to the Vittoria Rubino's I was using previously.
MTL Great product, hard-wearing and grippy. Recommended
sahin Good tyres, light, good rolling, perfect grip in all conditions! Good puncture protection.
Rob Tried these last year and was impressed, they are a good training tyre better on our roads than the continentals I had used
Mr Nifras Big, comfy and grippy. Great price from merlin make these an excellent purchase.
Mr aykan Good tyres, light, good rolling, perfect grip in all conditions! Good puncture protection. My tires came in 5 days to istanbul, thanks
Mr Azzopardi The Durano Raceguard is a great tyre as it sticks very well to the road, I was not expecting it but the ride was very comfortable and it took the bumps and potholes very well.
Mr Tutmaz Easy to change, has good grip. With two levers, it is easily removed from the rim. Puncture protection is really good as I only got one puncture in 2000k on the roads of Istanbul until I hit the edge of an embankment in a failed attempt of a bunny hop and punctured the rear tyre. The grip is assuring as I feel really safe when turning the corners (never used in the rain).
Mr Tatlidil I rode under heavy storm and I felt good with its "grip" feeling.
Mr Horth I swapped out the Vittoria knobbies on my cross bike to commute on these. Instant speed increase and significantly better in the wet than the schwalbe one tubeless tyres I was running on my other bike. I read lots of reviews of these being better than Gatorskins as far as ride feel. My cross bike now feels like a road bike.
JG I can't genuinely tell if these roll better, but they definitely accelerate more quickly than other tyres I've used and, so far, are showing no signs of wear.
Mr Hill These tires are easy rolling and good gripping in all conditions. They are a little tight to fit the first time round but there after they are much easier to fit. Very good value and quality.
Richard Great tyres so far, feel a little less lively than my previous tyres but the improvement in grip in all conditions is huge (with disc brakes too). The tyres have already had to deal with horrendous road surfaces and glass all over and have stood up well with no slashes in the tyre. So far I'm really pleased with the confidence they have given me over my older tyres.
Little chris Good tyres, roll nicely even on rough unsealed roads
Mr Woods Great tyre balancing road speed and lightweight nature with puncture protection. I always go for Durano as it ticks all the boxes.
Mark Hewitson A lighter tyre than conti 4 seasons and way easier to change. Roll very well and have plenty of grip in mixed conditions. Seem to be a good winter/early spring tyre.
