Last for ages...

Absolutely bullet proof are the Durano + tyres. Not as fast rolling as regular tyres, but I’ll take that any day over punctures in the middle of nowhere. One puncture in two years and thousands of miles states it all really...

No Punctures

I have had 2 sets of Durano Plus and would recommend them as a good rolling tyre and excellent puncture resistance! I have not had a puncture in any of the 4 tyres over the past 3½ years - 18,000 miles plus over all types of road and tracks.

Durano Plus Tyres

I recently fitted two new Durano Plus tyres to my Dawes 701. I had read reports that because of the SmartGuard belt they were difficult to fit. However they were very easy to fit and I had no trouble at all. haven't done that many miles on them yet so I cant comment on their puncture proof properties but they roll very well and look good

Schwalbe Road Tyre Guide

 

Schwalbe Road Tyre Guide

With puncture protection, grippy rubber compounds and tread patterns designed for different surfaces Schwalbe road bike tyres are packed full of technology. See the range of technologies that give their road bike tyres a performance edge.


Protection

Smartguard

Protection Level 7 – Smartguard offers the highest level of puncture protection. A 5mm thick layer of special Indian rubber sits under the tread offering durable protection against objects penetrating through the tread. The Indian rubber layer is highly elastic for better handling.


Double Defence Raceguard

Protection Level 6 – combining a double layer of nylon under the tread with snakeskin sidewall protection. This lightweight protection is designed for racing.


V-Guard

Protection Level 5 – Using an extremely resistant cut layer, V-Guard tyres offer a high level of puncture resistance.


Raceguard

Protection Level 4 – A double layer of Nylon fabric under the tread offers good protection for light, sporty tyres.


K-Guard

Protection Level 3 – A natural rubber layer, reinforced with Kevlar fibres under the tread offers the minimum standard for puncture protection in Schwalbe tyres.


SnakeSkin

Sidewall Protection – SnakeSkin is a monofilament fabric on the sidewall of the tyre which provides the best cut protection for sidewalls.


Rubber Compounds

Triple Compound

Triple compound tyres have different compounds in as the base, centre and shoulder sections of the tyre. Softer shoulder compounds give you more cornering grip, while harder center compounds offer improved durability and lower rolling resistance.
