I commute 20ks to the Melbourne CBD and have had many a puncture. I have ridden with these tyres for over a year with only one flat which was a large hand made nail. It didn't split the tyre despite the lage size so that only a change of tube was required. I don't get the km's as claimed and just replaced the rear tyre after about 2,500 kms as the blue protection strip was showing. Maybe I am heavy on the braking. I put them on my new Trek which is a lighter quicker bike than my last so I have not noticed the weight of the tyre. I try to avoid the wet but have been caught out a good dozen times in the rain and find they still grip quite well.
Bought a pair of these, they felt sluggish when I put them on but I'd been riding a different bike for a while so I wrote it off to new tyres that I needed to get used to. After 3 or 4 rides (~80km each ride), I noticed I was getting neck/back ache, headaches and prolonged pain after each ride. The Durano Plus I'd put on my front wheel has a defect in the form of a lump in the tyre that, with each rotation of the tyre, sent a vibration pulse up through the bike, my arms into my neck and back. It was only when riding on a perfectly smooth, new road surface that I realised the problem was with the bike (as it turns out, the tyre) and not dodgy road surface. I've ridden approx 300-400kms on the tyres. Local Bike Store has confirmed it's a defect in the tyre, my wheel/rims are fine.
Ignoring the defect for a moment, my overall response to the tyres is that they feel sluggish on the road and while the puncture resistance is probably very good, the Luganos, at half the price, were puncture resistant enough for me!
