A race-ready recumbent tire.

The Schwalbe Durano is a hard wearing and puncture resistant tire with a low rolling resistance and excellent grip in all conditions. A great choice for recumbent riders looking for a high-performance winter training tire.

Features include a RaceGuard flat resistant belt and water dispersing grooved pattern.

This version the Schwalbe Durano is available in 20" x 1.10" (28-406 ISO). Folding bead. 190g, 115psi max. This is a common size used for recumbent bicycles, folding bicycles and trailers .

20 Inch Sizing Note: There are two sizes commonly referred to as "20 inch" which are not interchangeable. This size features a 406mm bead seat diameter (to ensure compatibility this measurement should be printed somewhere on your existing tire or rim). The width measurement for the 406 size is almost always expressed in the form of a decimal (e.g. 1.50), not a fraction (e.g. 1 1/2). If you are unclear about which size fits your 20 inch rim please contact us.

Awesome tire deserves better packaging
rating
by Gary

This tire was the perfect size for my Greenspeed rim. Honestly, I prefer slicks, but the this was still a great road tread pattern.

I hate that these tires were folded into the packaging. I had to work the beads back to straight.

Super tough and extremely fast rolling racing tire. Currently mounted on the front aerospoke of my Lightning F-40 recumbent (Worlds fastest production bicycle) and this tire is extremely fast and durable. I had two of them (406 or 20) on the front of my 75lb Bluevelo strada velomobile and put just over 18,000 miles on two sets without a single tear or puncture and that's on a 75 lb velomobile with all my commuting stuff on the mean streets of New Jersey! I just ordered a new pair for my soon to be acquired Angletec Altitude dual suspension recumbent for fast road riding. I have used the continental grand prix and the continental sport contact tires in this size as well and found them not as fast and more prone to damage. Although I had the continentals on for a shorter time, the sport contacts developed cracking on the sidewalls and the grand prix got all chewed up during Bike NY. I ride every day and have averaged between 4-5k miles out of a durano tire before I replace them (Typically at the end of the riding season when I switch to marathon plus tires for my winter commuting months). I have also found these duranos easy to install and very forgiving on rough pavement. You can play with the tire pressure pumping it up when you want to torture roadies and letting some air go if you are doing a ride with rough roads.

Not a GP4000sII but acceptable

Good product, reasonable price. Tires in 406x28 not ubiquitous and this tire is an acceptably fast tire. However, according to rolling resistance tests, these need 4-5 watts per tire more than GP4000sII tires.

This tire is used as the front tire on a Easy Racer, Goldrush recumbent bike. Have always used a Continental in the past which isn't available anymore. This Durango seems to be preforming very well so far. More time will tell!!

Great front tire for my Gold Rush recumbent bike. A little difficult to install but talcum powder & a bead jack helps.

Schwalbe 20 inch bike tires meet needs on Bike Friday.

I purchased the Schwalbe Durano (406) 20 inch bike tires for my Bike Friday NWT for an upcoming month-long ride in Italy. Most riders will be on full-sized bikes (some rentals), & I wanted a narrower, performance tire for my 2004 Friday. Usually, I ride 1.35 wide tires with a Kevlar belt, but this time I am trying the 1.1 inch wide tire. Right now, I have 500 miles on the set of new tires, & I ride rough roads here in Tucson, AZ. The tires have performed well. Easy to change & mount.

I had another Schwalbe tire but they were discontinued so this is the second time I've had these. The first set of Durano's didn't seem to last long, the side walls seem to have cracks, a lot of cracks. And the tires were not very old and always kept indoors. I don't remember my other Schwalbe's having that problem and they were on the bike for 3 to 4 years before replacing with the Durano's.

We'll see how this set last. Oh my last rear tire had a puncture or something on the side!! Not sure if it was from one of the cracks or I hit something?

Good tires, just the 20 wheels go through tires faster, as the circumference is shorter

glad to have the folding version, as preparing for a cross country ride on my bike friday. i've been using Duranos on it since i got the BF in 2010

Very happy with the price and the mango colour matches my bike frame.

The tyres are for my3 wheel recumbent, which I have had a lot of trouble finding well priced quality 20 road tyre for. They have good grip and are faster than the tyres they replaced however they wear quiet quickly but I get around this by buying 2 sets at a time.

I use Durano Plus tires for my daily commute bikes. These are not as flat resistant as the Plus version, but still the best tires I have found for my Bike Friday.

These tires work well and were the right size! Warning for those looking for 20 tires, not all 20 tires are the same size! Make sure to go by the value within the parenthesis when you replace your existing tires. Having tried and failed on my first pair, I've learned my lesson.

I'm riding a Midracer recumbent, have only had it for a few months, it had Kojacks on it when I got it. Due to winter there is a lot of cinder rocks on the road and they became full of rock cuts, only one made it to the tube. I do not know how old this tire was but the side wall separated, end of tire. I installed the Durano and so far so good. The ride is a little rougher, but they are a 115 psi tire compared to 95 psi They handle great, roll great, fast, and seem to be be lasting well. if it continues to perform as it is, I will buy this tire again. The bike is my do all bike,commute, train, compete,I carry three saddle bags and have a rack on it. I weigh around 230lbs, bikes 45lbs, this tire is getting a real work.
