They are the same thing, they are between 250g and 320g depending on width, which is a lot lighter than Schwalbe Marathons, which are touring tyres, they weight between 590g and 740g. Conti Gatorskins are also the most popular training tyre in Europe...Bond said:I'm not sure if they are the same I was looking at. Are they heavy?
GrasB said:If you're looking for proper road tyres consider Durano Plus not the lightest tyres in the world but certainly aren't as heavy as M+.
Personally I've not found M+ to be that heavy in 700x28c guise or hard to get on (though I am using 26er rims not road/touring so they have more dish in the rim).
Just ordered 2 of these as I've had my 2nd flat in a week on my conti 4 seasons,1 of which has resulted in a large slit right across the tyre.colinr said:I've Schwalbe Durano Plus - the slick equivalent of the Marathons. One puncture in the last year, one tyre wrecked by a massive glass slash right through the guard (didn't puncture though).
