The Schwalbe Durano DD (or Double Defense) Road Tire is designed with the high mileage road rider in mind. It is not the fastest tire out there, but is a great option if you want a tire which you can just bung on and forget about while you concentrate on racking up the miles. We would say that the Durano DD sits right in the middle between other tires which offer lower rolling resistance and other tires which offer greater puncture protection - and we think that’s a good place to be, ideal for many riders who want a tire which balances grip, rolling resistance, longevity and the all-important puncture protection.
Talking of puncture protection (this is where the Double Defense name comes in), on the Durano DD you get Schwalbe’s RaceGuard protective belt along the middle of the tire for the bulk of protection but also additional protection along the shoulders and sidewall in the form of their SnakeSkin monofilament fabric, which will resist cuts and enhance snakebite protection.
The Durano DD would be a great option for a bike which sees a range of types of riding (commuting, fast training rides, longer rides, and maybe even some sportive riding) or for riders who want a durable fuss-free tire which still offers a decent ride experience.
