Schwalbe Durano Skid: Review

The Durano Skid is the latest development from Schwalbe. Designed specifically for fixed bikes, the Durano Skid, with a high durometer rubber down the centerline and a strong rubber-coated side wall, greatly increases durability. Under heavy loads, such as those experienced when back-pedaling a fixie, wheel lock is inevitable and also extremely abrasive to your tire. Having to switch out tires frequently is a nuisance and it certainly costs more.

Without a doubt, Schwalbe has set the standard for bicycle tire design over the years. The original Marathon XR tire set the standard for the best touring tire worldwide. The variable durometer tread ensured lower rolling resistance, better durability and enhanced grip when cornering. With the new Durano Skid, you can expect the same leading design. The high durometer centerline should prove worthy in withstanding greater frictional loads considerably longer than other tires with its deeper, abrasion resistant tread. Stay in the saddle longer and don’t fiddle with your bike.

The Durano Skid – for Bikes without Brakes. Available in 700 x 25c (black only).

Schwalbe Ultremo ZX: Review

The Ultremo brand of tires are the perfect balance between performance and puncture protection. The ZX is the newest development from Schwalbe, with HD Speed Guard and RaceStar Triple Compound. These components are tailored to the rigorous demands of the competitive cyclist. I have been using Ultremo tires for more than a decade. They are the best performing race tires on the market. The new ZX has reduced rolling resistance for better speed and the shoulders have been reinforced to increase durability.

Available in a variety of colors and also 25c and 28c for added rider comfort (black only). Try these on, you won’t be disappointed. The ZX is the best Ultremo ever!

Schwalbe Marathon Plus HS 348: Review

The Marathon Plus tire is the newest generation of flatless tires by Schwalbe. The tire incorporates the SmartGuard belt which is a strong, highly elastic, special rubber layer offering extremely effective protection against penetration punctures. The layer is approximately 7mm thick, which helps prevent sharp puncture flats. The SmartGuard layer, along with the enhanced tread design and high durometer centerline, do not increase rolling resistance compared to a non-SmartGuard tire. If you’re traveling or commuting, especially in the dark, you don’t want to get a flat. With these tires, flats become virtually obsolete. Nothing can be better than the peace of mind of reliable transportation. For general purpose, around town and commuting, there is no better tire available than the Marathon Plus tire. Hands down the leader in puncture protection.
