Anyone riding Schwalbe Marathon Duremes?

Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Anyone riding Schwalbe Marathon Duremes?

These are discontinued now but I'm sure there are still a lot of people who have them. I'm wanting to experiment more with riding off-pavement, primarily dirt and gravel roads. I want wide tires for cushion and a little tread to make up for my lack of off-road riding skills. 40mm is roughly my max tire size.

I've considered several tires, including:

Clement MSO
WTB Nano 40
Surly Knard 41

However, I already have a set of 40mm Duremes and I'm currently riding those. Has anyone ridden Duremes and one or more of the tires I listed? How do they compare as far as handling quality? Are Duremes likely to be much better on pavement or much worse off-road? I definately lean more toward the MSO or the Nano rather than the Knard because I'll still be doing a lot of pavement riding, probably even mostly pavement.
