Rated 5 out of 5 by angryadam1 for the money amazing!
upgraded to these from the standard vittoria zaffiro on my Orbea aqua. Mainly because i wanted better quality inner tubes that didnt loose air (these tubes that are included are much better than average tubes) but at this price i just got the lot. They are faster, smoother, look better, deal with bumps very well and are quieter than the vittoria zaffiro. Obviously not the most expensive tyres in the world but i cant fault them for heavy recreational use. Not quite as long lasting as some but with this level of grip and speed who cares

The tubes included in this deal are only available in the valve length as listed on the buying option (they are already bundled together by our supplier); if you want the longer valve option you would need to buy it separately.
