    Schwalbe Durano-Skid. Any experiences?

    Has anyone tried the Schwalbe Durano-Skid tire? Seems like a relatively new entry to the "fixie-urban-skidz" tire category.

    It's lighter than a rando, but about $15 more.

    Nope but it sure looks tempting.

    Bicycles without brakes are illegal in certain countries.

    I remember Scrod having these tires for a while on his 725, although I'm not sure he has the "Skid" models.

    A friend of mine bought one. After three polo sessions and 100 km's it looks like this:



    Quality problems again, or just failed design?

    Failed design. They're basically the same tire as the Durano Plus (which are back on my 725) with a slightly different tread pattern and a little more meat on them. The fact that they don't come bigger than 25c is another fail in itself.

    It may be lighter than a Rando but it's nowhere near as durable.
