The Durano has a completely redesigned dynamic tread and is now ten grams lighter. The outstanding qualities, such as the extremely high mileage, remain the same. The dual compound ensures optimum adhesion, even on wet training stretches in winter. The RaceGuard protection belt, with a double layer of nylon fabric, provides well-proven puncture protection for light sports tyres.
The Durano Plus has been designed for maximum puncture protection. The SmartGuard protection belt made of elastic rubber may not be quite as thick as the belt of the Marathon Plus. Nevertheless it achieves an unusually high level of protection for a racing tyre. According to Peter Krischio, Schwalbe Product Manager Race: "It is the most puncture-proof racing tyre there is".
