The high mileage classic that is the Vittoria Rubino Pro comes into its third generation with even better ride characteristics. First, the casing has been upgraded form 120 tpi to an incredible 150 tpi for a supple ride, durability, and low rolling resistance. Kevlar® Endura 3D compound provides long tread life and better grip especially in wet weather. The tread design has also been changed to the Prism Vector Design for more reliability when cornering while retaining a smooth center for fast rolling.
Our flagship model when it comes to high-mileage (torture-tested in extreme events like RAAM, Race Across America) is back, completely renewed!
Nylon 150 TPI casing, market-standard for high performance.
New Kevlar® Endura 3D Compound, with high duration and exciting road-behaviour.
PRB puncture protection.
Updated tread pattern, with Dot C.O.M. Vector Design.
Kevlar® Endura 3D Compound - When making this new compound, we decided to capitalize on our glorious Kevlar® 3D Compound and increase its wear-resistance.
Very good grip, on all roads.
Low energy absorption.
Strongly recommended for its high-mileage, both training and racing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yateserman Smooth Ride
I'm usually skeptical about reviews in bike mags urging us to upgrade our bike, but having just bought these Vittoria tyres I'm happy to choke on humble pie. What a marked difference these tyres make to my ride, even on our roads! I've only had them two days and the difference between these and the original tyres is significant, so much so I've been wanting to share with anyone that can be bothered to even half listen. The ride is so "smooth", it's difficult to explain but even on average road surfaces it feels smoother and I'm also sure hill climbing is improved. To think I only bought these for the wet and cold weather conditions. Excellent way to spend £38. Thanks CRC for the great price and delivering them next day. Only gave 4 stars as too early to give full assessment for wear and puncture prevention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Torontoweekendwarrior Great tire, great price, great online experience
So I bought two excellent tires designed in Italy, made in Thailand, sold through online in Ireland and shipped to my country Canada. Quite the journey, but they have found a nice home on my road bike! I have the 25 width. Broke them in on a century ride this weekend. Performed excellently on chip seal, hot pavement and even very course loose gravel for 3 kms. Very impressed with these tires already. I bought them for durability to suit my frugal pocketbook and can't wait to see how long they last! I definitely recommend them and also awesome shipping from Chainreactioncycles.com....I received them in just a week! Happy customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rossetti One of the best all round tyres on the market !!
This tyre is very durable. It grips well in both wet and dry conditions, while cornering, and climbing. It provides good puncture protection. After cycling approximately 1000 miles on a set of these from new, I've not had one single puncture. They are lightweight and easy to mount onto rims. Perfect tyre for training. I've even seen these tyres being used in road races. Great all round tyre, and good value for money. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent tyre
Used this tyre throughout the winter for both training and commuting (so combination of very poor country and city roads) and had two punctures in total. Although not as grippy as the continental gatorskins I had before, they are much tougher, longer lasting and puncture proof. Will buy again.

This is a great all around tyre. Perfect for training and commuting. I've even seen a few people using these for racing. Excellent value. Strong sidewalls. Durable compound. Good puncture protection. Grip is good in both wet and dry conditions while cornering, descending, and riding on the flat. Grip on the rear wheel is generally fine while climbing, but sometimes it slides from under you in damp conditions especially on steeper gradients during out of the saddle efforts. But that is a rare occurrence. Another plus with this tyre is that it easy to mount onto rims.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very reliable
I bought these and fitted them to my winter training wheels. I have to admit, these tyres are very good indeed! Covered 2.2K this winter and zero flats. Compared with summer riding on a set of Conti 4000s 4K and 3 flats, the Rubino is doing well. Comparing the two tyres, I would say that the Rubino will last longer but not as fast. The 4000s is considerable grippier and on the corners does inspire confidence. The Rubino is equally as good in the wet. The Rubino is about £10 cheaper and comes with a set of Vittoria stickers.

Got a set of these over the winter after getting a serious bad run with punctures, 2000k later and no punture. Good grip and smooth rolling too. Will be buying again although not for a long time as they appear to be wearing really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great set of tyres
Purchased these tyres in december 2012 to replace a set of GP 4000, the vits are brilliant as they have a harder compound rubber so that flats are nearly void but still remain capable in the wet. Picked up a tack on my last ride at the 40klm mark, road an extra 20klms with the tack in tyre and basicly no leakage of air..wil not go back to GP 4000 as they are way to soft
