I got the straight from Schwalbe, but I believe www.FudgeCycleStore.com will have them in stock soon!


Schwalbe told me I need: "AV7B tube or SV7B" (they didnt have any in stock)


But I went for my test ride anyway, just a short 20km ride across the city, I didnt expect to see much difference with from the Durano (by the way, they are no longer listed on their website, which must mean they stopped production? if so make sure you stock up!) but the difference is quite huge! the rolling speed is, because the tyre is much narrower and the contact surface even more, much greater, you can see a difference straight away.


But this tyre's best assets are when cornering, the Durano's weakest point, with the Ultremo ZX is just soo much greater, you feel the tyre grip (its a much softer compound)

I did the testing with 120psi

Durano Vs Ultremo size difference
