Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire
Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tires promise amazing acceleration and greater speeds, especially on smooth roads. A durable 150 TPI casing is ultra supple, so you don't lose that cornering action that you need to dominate crit races, attack steep, winding descents, or make a breakaway from the peloton--an excellent all-around tire for the tough trainer or racer who wants performance and durability.
    Note: Stamp on tire says max PSI is 120 for 700 x 23c but manufacturer confirms that max PSI is actually 145.
  • Great, all-around tire for riders that desire a quick, fast acting tire
  • Capable of high mileage and low service
  • One of the most popular clincher tires ever!

    Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

    I put these tires on my new dura ace 24's.I was able to install them with the use of no tools,the sidewalls are very supple.was a little concerned about flats but the contact patch is the sturdiest part of the tire,they seem really fast got caught in a heavy rain storm seven miles from my truck, these are not that bad in rain but not a great rain tire.

    Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

    This is the third or fourth set I have put on my bike. They are a good value overall. I have cut a couple, but what tire doesn't. I love the 25mm size. Good traction. I will continue using them in the future. Good for what I do.

    Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

    I weigh 165 (weight is related to tire wear) and ride on city streets and county roads which some are rough in texture, I only got about 2,500 miles on them, usually I average about 4,000. In that time I only had one flat which was because the rubber had worn to thin and the cord got exposed while riding, so flat protection was stellar. The tire only got 2 small cuts in that time which I sealed the cuts with Gorilla Glue. This tire handled very well even in the wet, but I don't have fast mountain switchbacks so I can't say how they would do under those conditions, but I do ride in a lot of rain and never felt they were inadequate for the conditions. They also seemed to roll pretty good.

    I'm always trying different tires and found a couple of tires that are better than the Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III but only in the area of tread life, the rest of the aspects where pretty much the same. Overall this is one of the best tires I've tried except for the wear factor which could have been better had the company added another 32nd of rubber which would have added weight, or made the center rubber section a bit harder which may have compromised the wet weather handling.

    Get them on sale and you won't go wrong.

    Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

    I've been riding Rubino slicks for as long as I can remember. I get about 1500 miles or so on each, I rarely flat and almost never cut them. Great all around tire, dual compound works great. Also, when on sale, they are a great value. I've been running the 23s, but also the 25s, both work great. The 120 tpi is supple, I don't have a need for a better tire. Not the best tire in the rain, I don't ride much when it is wet.

    One other thing, Vittoria tires go on with some work, but nothing like Michelin or Contis. I keep cussing those tires when I have to mount them. I can work the final bead on without a lever, thus, I don't pinch flat.

            These came on my Marin San Marion and they lasted 3000, great handeling (through Garden of the gods), I tried a cheaper tire for some time, but went right back to these; the bike now has 7200 miles and I'm ready for my third set.
