Thinking of trying them, but it looks like they have no sidewall protection?
According to spokesman at Schwalbe, these are the most puncture resistant road tires they make besides the Marathon Plus tires.

Wanted to know how you like yours.

I would take their word for it. I use their double defense Marathon, and have had zero complaints since I put them on years ago. If that Durano is heavier and more expensive than the Marathon, I would just go with the Marathon unless you find a size more to your liking.

I have no experience with the tires. I ordered a Durano, not the Plus model, last week, and it should be here in a few days.

The Marathon Plus is heavier.

If it's lighter and has the same puncture resistance, that's for me. Unless they are way more expensive, of course.
