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

  • One of the most popular clincher tires ever!

    Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

    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.

        Recently got back into cycling and needed to replace my old dry rotted tires. Good price and the lime green looks great!

        Its a pleasure to ride, lightweight and smooth, but they don't last more than 500-700 miles. The sidewall cracks easily.

            Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

            I've enjoyed every set of Vittoria tires I've owned. My bike came with Vittoria Corsa CX tires, which were fantastic, but they only lasted 1,200 miles (good for a racing tire). The Rubino Pro Slick III's perform almost as well, but they last much longer (900 miles w/ very little wear) and they're more affordable. In a nutshell: low rolling resistance, good cornering grip, no issues in the wet. These tires are a bargain. I'm 210 lbs and I inflate them to 115 psi.

              I tried both the 120 tpi and now these 150 tpi.
              Wow these feel much smoother, it tends to soak up more bumps.Taking the imperfections in road conditions and making the bike feel less buzzy vibration. I can descend and hold my line better around a 10 percent grade hill and then turn a sharp corner with full grip control ;) And when i go to the laughing place hill thats like 30 percnt grade and shoot the the twisties wow better than disneyland space mountain ride.

              Comments about Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick III Road Tire:

              I'm 205 lbs & ride 400 - 800 miles per month. These tires ride wonderfully; they corner & accelerate better than just about all other tires I've tried but my rear tire wore through to the cords in just a few months which is alarmingly fast. The front tire is still in good shape & I did purchase a replacement for the rear. I keep these set aside for the odd century or when I think I need an edge. Otherwise I'm quite happy with Michelin Krylons. The Vitoria tire rides much better, but the Krylons last & last. Flat resistance is equally good with either tire.

                Tire rides very well. Inflated to 110 front and back the ride is very supple and smooth.

                  Normally a stay with a solid tire without color. However, I couldn't pass on a high quality tire like this at such a great price - plus my bike has some blue in it so what the heck. Not sure there is a better deal out there!
