For mile eaters. Durano is the right choice for high mileage purposes, because no other racing tyre lasts longer.

"Using this on the front of my commuting bike. Rolls really well, and is super skinny. High PSI rating a bonus for commuting. Have only had on the bike for <500km so no noticable wear. No punctures either in this time and our streets are shocking - glass, quakeholes etc. Was getting a puncture a week on previous tyres - maxis detonator slicks (hopeless) - great to get to work on time again!"
Pros: Durable, High Quality

"Put this on the back of my commuting bike. Has been great so far - but only done a couple of hundred km. Rolls well and no punctures so far on glass strewn, earthquake affected ChCh roads."
Pros: High Quality

"I already owned one of these, which was damaged resulting from a fall, then bike falling on it in ChCh earthquake. So happy with my original one i bought another. It has slighly different strap and adjusters - a wheel cf the push together clicky bits which are just as effective as my original helmet."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

will i need to change innertube(from chunky off road tyres 26x2.15ish) and will they fit on normal mtb rims

Yes, will go on standard 26in rims.
It is possible to use your existing tube, but you will most likely pinch and puncture it during fitting. This tyre in a whole lot narrower than a typical knobbly off road tyre.
Your best bet is to get a smaller tube - 26x1-1.5. This will prevent much cursing and frustration!
