" What cant be said about the Durano + that hasnt said before..... Highly versatile in all but the slippiest of roads, laughs in the face of rain and grit on the roads, lve covered over 1000km on these and not one puncture. Others in the grouyp have not been so lucky! Ran at 100psi, l chose a slightly wider tyre as l wanted grip assurance at the sacrifice of a bit of speed and a bit more rollong weight (not much though!). I was pleasently suprised how little speed was lost, with added confidence to take on wet corners, round abouts et all with gusto. Completely forgot what it is to fix a puncture.
Fit and forget, absolute winter no brainer for me now. "

 Hope Chainring With Integrated Bashring - 104BCD
Hope Chainring With Integrated Bashring - 104BCD
Hope's new range of chainrings have an integrated bashring to keep them protected and can be used for a range of 1x setups. Machined from T6 aluminium alloy for a beautiful finish, this is a great finishing touch for a custom MTB build.

" "I bought one of these as l wanted a lightweight, effective guide for a 'home designed' 1 x 10 set up, as l didnt want to spend a fortune on 'the official' set up...
I bought it in conjucntion with a SRAM XO downhill carbon crankset and a chain gude clamp on to use up front and can only be described as a great compromise, low weight and just what l was after. The whole set up is now simple and effective, has been used in many XC races and never dropped my chain once. Im running an XTR cassette with XTR rear mech and clutch to complete the drive train. Faultless."

Winter Riding

Is this tyres suitable for winter riding, if not any suggestions, I'm after a tyre with great puncture protection like these or marathon plus that are good for winter cycling.
Ive just posted a review on these tyres, my title 'winter tyres - fit and forget' should give the game away! Superb, no issues with punctures or standing water. Not as sluggish as l thought they might be, even though l chose the wider option...
