Schwalbe Durano S tyre review
The fastest of Schwalbe’s tough Durano family is still impressively impenetrable and enjoyable to ride for the money. While it has less protection built in than the Durano and Durano Plus, the S still has an enviable reputation for shrugging off punctures even with extensive use on rough roads.
It is slightly stiffer and fractionally more slippery than Schwalbe’s top Evolution tyres, but the broad, lightweight carcass still rides really well compared with most competitors, with easy speed and low weight responsiveness despite the impressive puncture insurance.
Reasonable pricing is enhanced by a decent wear life, making this a top all-weather training tyre.
