Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire
A legendary tire from a legendary manufacturer, the Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire delivers amazing acceleration and greater speeds, especially on smooth roads. A durable 150 TPI casing is ultra-supple, so you can corner like nobody's business -- be it diving through turns in a crit or bombing your favorite, twisting descent. Despite weighing in at a svelte 215 grams, there's plenty of life in this tire as the tread compound is optimized for tallying high mileage. And for the aesthetically minded, there's surely a color scheme on tap to perfectly match your favorite road rig's palette. Accept no substitutes if an excellent all-around tire that can handle the rigors of tough training and racing is what your road bike requires.
  • Smooth tread is optimized for low rolling resistance and superior grip on pavement
  • Tread compound durable enough for logging plenty of miles
  • One of the most popular clincher tires ever!

      Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

      I like these tires, handling has significantly improved over the Schwalbe Luganos, which wore out too quickly. Smooth rolling and absorbs a lot of the road shock, surprisingly comfortable tires.

      No problem mounting, but they took a little extra thumb pressure to get the last part of the bead over the rim. Gives me the confidence that they'll stay put no matter what the road throws my way. If they're like the Zafiro's on my other bike, they'll last a lot of miles.

        Used these tires for the past month & 1/2. Used them for a century on smooth & somewhat potted roads. Then 3 weeks later for another century. No problems in either long ride or trainings in between. Prefer these tires vs. the Diamente Pro SE (which costs more, wears out quicker & more prone to punctures/gashes IMHO). Even road in the rain for a recent century-handling on downhills & corners without hesistation. Rolling resistance fairly good.

                    I found these tires two years ago and they have been the longest lasting tires I have had. Don't know why but very seldom flat out and they last for hundreds of miles. I may have learned to avoid the c&*p on the road but they are now my tire of choice.

                        Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

                        I bought these for a new set of rims. Unfortunately after 3 hours of trying to mount them and puncturing the inner tubes 5 times I gave up and mounted my old Michelim tires with no problems. With logging 10,000 miles a year this is not my first rodeo when it comes to mounting tires. These have to be the worst tires that I have ever tried to mount. So, at the present time the Vittoria's are hanging out in my garage collecting dust.

                          These tires are great"
                          Thick tire puncture resist and smooth rolling, and soak up road vibrations. Very stable in rain conditions for a slick tire. Confident traction on the wet roads, turns well with confidence. Ide recommend these tires for riders who like to go on long meandering country side tours.

                          I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled these tires on both front and rear wheels. A really tough job to get the tire seated on the rim and equally difficult to remove. Once they are on, however, I think they are great. Smooth, good in corners, lightweght.

                            These tires are great on the road. Smooth rolling and absorbs much of the road vibrations while improving the bikes handling. Handled wet road well for slicks.
