Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

I have the 23s. I have had these tires for over 6 count them years they have never failed me. The battery on my cateye mity 8 ran out before the tires did. I have no idea how many miles I have on them now.

Since I changed the battery I now have over 700 miles on them. I attribute the reason why to the fact that I rotate them every 2 to 4 hundred miles. They have got to wear out someday but not today.

The only drawback is they are hard to mount. VERY HARD I just take them to the bike shop when I want to rotate them or if I have a flat. That way I will not damage the tires somehow

They do well on pavement.They accelerate and corner well. They even do well in wet weather. on gravel like on the trinity trail in Ft Worth they do ok. Just go slower due to braking they will slide especially the back. Even though you planted at the rear of the seat.

GET THEM IF YOU ALREADY HAVEN'T !

Great Value

By SDW90808

Pros

  • Low Rolling Resistance
  • Too Soon To Tell

Cons

  • A Bit Tricky To Install

Best Uses

  • Commuting
  • Serious Racing/Training

Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

Bought these because I've had good luck with the Vittoria brand. I like the fact that you can pressurize them to 145 psi. One caveat, however. The wire bead on these tires makes them particularly tricky to put on. I punctured two tubes installing them, before I realized it was due to my technique. Not a big deal but I've never had that happen before. So far I'm happy with them, especially for the price.

I'm not the aggressive rider I was in my youth so I can't give a fair assessment of cornering or how they'll perform in the rain but I think they're a great buy for most riders.

I have been riding on these tires for a few years now and had a rear flat. I was able to finish the ride of about 1 1/2 miles on the flat tire, put a new tube in it and am still riding on it.

    This is a good and solid training tire. It has phenomenal flat and cut resistance and appears to have relatively low rolling resistance. This is a good choice for a basic tire.

          Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire:

          These tyres are getting more expensive each year, but they're decent as cheapie tyres. Wait for a 20% discount to purchase. But you could get better tyres for a few dollars more. They last a good bit on the road in the sense that they won't go bald immediately & you can throw them on the trainer & not feel bad about wasting them away. Not really grippy but rolling resistance isn't anything to cheer about. They're solid for training & commuting. Red looks snappy. They are a beast to mount on your wheels though; definitely a work out.

            Bought these in red. Cooler than my leather jacket. They inflate up to 145! I constantly feel like I'm rolling around on a marvel of modern science. I like the non-directional tread. Nicest tires I've ever owned.

                    This tires are great on the road hard to wear but in my bike trainer will wear easy so don't use it for inside training.I know that is not a good reason to give lower rating.
