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 have purchased many tires but I am very impressed with the durability and high pressure for the Schwalbe Durano 20 tire, its great appearance and superb handling makes this the ideal tire to have, well worth the cost
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.
I have this Durano on the front of my Lightning P-38 recumbent bike. You may not have the opportuninty to decent a canyon road at 50mph like I do, but if you do you'll want a Schwalbe in the front, fast stable tire.
this was the perfect tire for me - fast, comfortable, and sticky. however, you must keep it at very high pressure to keep from getting a snake bite. i like my tires at 80psi. got 3 flats at that pressure. i run a rear durano at 26 inches at 1.35 and it is the best road tire i have ever ridden. i wish that the 406 came in 1.35. i would buy it in a heart beat.
I have purchased and used these tires on my Gold Rush over the last 6 years. This is only the second tire that I have bought. I ride about 2 thousand miles a year and they have performed great. They are fast high pressure tires that I would have given a 5 star rating but the stelvo was a faster design that that these tires replaced. I have had no flats with this tire in about 6000 miles of riding.
This tire is not the cheapest tire on the market to slap on your bmx bike, but than again it is not designed for bmx, rather mainly recumbants. However, I put a pair of these on my rainy-day BMX commuter bike and the combination of nice tires and Chris King hubs give a super smooth and fast ride. The max PSI is way higher than I will ever use, but very practical for recumbant riders and owners of the traveling bikes made by "Bike Friday". The materials used feel great and the tread pattern is sufficient. I have not riden this long enough to speak for puncture resistance.
NOTE For standard BMX rims you will want the 1.10" ISO406 not 1 1/8" ISO451. ISO406 has the correct inner diameter for standard 20" BMX rims.
