Pros & Cons

  • This is the go-to tyre for those who want to say goodbye to punctures! (Okay, no tyre is perfect- but this really is one of the most puncture resistant tyres we've seen...)
  • The excellent puncture protection makes the tyre rather inflexible, so the handling characteristics aren't great.

Description

The Schwalbe Durano Double Defence is fitted with a double protective layer. Besides the RaceGuard breaker layer, the SnakeSkin layer reinforces the sidewalls and shoulders of the Durano DD and ensures all-round protection with just a minor penalty to weight. The SnakeSkin fabric is new as well: it now uses a fabric fitted with mono-filaments which are more resistant to sharp cuts and offer more protection against snake bites.

Good looking tyre but puncture protection not great.

Unfortunately on my first second ride with these tyres I experienced a thorn right through the centre of the protective band so very disappointed with that. Would appear to have a very good grip as I found the journey was slower than normal. Also looks as if they are durable.

Pros

  • Good grip
  • Possibly durable

Cons

  • Disappointed with puncture protection
  • Slower journeys

in my view the best puncture resistance you can have

my last part of these tyres covered 7.5 thousand kms on the back roads and forest tracks in the UK only one puncture in that time !

Pros

  • great puncture resistance
  • good running speed

Cons

  • hard to fit on ardennes hud rims

Inperforabili

Eccezionale x chi non guarda il peso ma la praticità. Che poi nemmeno pesano più di tanto x la protezione che offrono
