Vittoria Zaffiro III Road Tire
If high mileage is your middle name, then the Vittoria Zaffiro III road tire is the perfect choice in the rubber department. The Aramid Endura 3D tread compound is extremely rugged and its deeper middle groves with shallower shoulders increase cornering grip in all conditions. Puncture protection delivers peace of mind against flats while the tire still maintains a fast-rolling fiend. With an outstanding cost-per-mile ratio and low rolling resistance, the Zaffiro III is a sound investment for trouble-free mega-miles on the open road.
  • The benchmark by which training tires are measured
  • Racing inspired tread pattern ensures cornering confidence
  • Aramid Endura 3D compound combines low rolling resistance, grip, and long life
  • Updated for a more modern look

Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro III Road Tire:

I bought these tires by default as they were the only 27"x1-1/8" tires available from Nashbar. My bike is a 30 year old antique from Nashbar but it fits me nicely. The tires are heavier than the ones they replaced. There's more "rubber on the road" so they should last; they make for a less bone rattling ride. My old tires were 110 psi and these are between 70 to 100 psi. I don't notice any increase in pedaling effort required with these tires.

      Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro III Road Tire:

      I bought these after numerous friends recommended Vittoria products; however, I might have got some defects because one of the tires developed a bubble and then blew apart with twenty miles on it. Nashbar was great and accepted the return. Kudos Nashbar!

      Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro III Road Tire:

      Haven't had a chance to put many miles on them yet, but am looking forward to it. They were tight putting on- had to use levers, but no issues. It's rare to find a tire with this combination of features: 100+psi/28cm+ (less pinch flats and better rolling) If you pump them up, you do feel everything on the road. Decent weight. Not a racing tire, but one could happily put in a 100 mile day on them. You can't beat the price.

          Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro III Road Tire:

          I had about 400 miles on the front. Then about two rides ago the tire developed a thump. I was a little warm and they've been paving some in my are so I thought I had picked up a chunk of tar or something. Didn't think much about it. Got home and inspected it and the tire had developed a huge bulge. It looked like a bent rim but even more exaggerated. I dodged a bullet that day, from now in when I feel something like that I'll stop to look at it and I won't be riding these tires. BTW, I generally don't abuse tires and I was only running 105 psi.

            Use these tires on my commuting bike, they have good grip, resist punctures, and the back tire last me about one biking season (2000 miles)

              I still have some old ones hanging in the shed. My tires are good on my bikes but for the price I can switch at any time. So for a person with multiple bikes they are reasonable. I like Continental and Michelin as well. Once they start getting puncture wounds in the tread I change them.

                Bought these for more "trail riding" and limestone, plus the Michigan roads are getting very potholed. Was not sure they would fit onto our tandem, they do. Not much larger then our 28's. Have not tried them out yet.

                    Purchased to replace hybrid tire and reduce rolling resistance--it does the job. Less than 100 miles but so far exceeds my expectations--great buy for the price
