      I use the product on a daily basis for commuting to the local college, solo training rides, as well as weekend group rides. The zaffiros are relatively long-lasting & can purchased from bike nashbar at a great price point.

          I have been very satisfied with these tires for the last three commuting/recreational years. I have bought a new set for my primary bicyle for each 3000 mile season. Extremely good value; I am happy I tooks a chance on these tires after spending high $$$s on other tires.
          I am now a heavy rider (5'8" 210). These ride best for me at 120 psi. They are a bit harder to mount but can be lifted into place.

            I am a 230+ pound rider and inflate these to 115 lbs/sq.in. I get around 1300 miles from the back tire and 2600 miles from the front (good value).

            They are a little hard to mount (tight) but will go on using just my hands if I am careful and patient. At least I know they won't squirm off if they lose air pressure suddenly.

            I am very satisfied with these tires, and they even come in different colors if you're feeling wild.

            Great Tire at a Great price

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire - 700x25:

            The tire is more difficult than others to mount, but overall this is a great tire. It is wider meaning more rolling resistance, however it gives you more suspension to smooth out rough road because there is more tire to absorb the impact of whatever you run over. The most impressive part of these tires - they're ability to keep you on the go. I just rode 102 miles and at the start of the ride noticed two large gashes most likely from broken glass. I decided to ride them out and finished the 102 miles with no incident. After dismounting the tire and taking a closer look the glass had cut clean through the outer layers but the inner layers of weave were undamaged. I was impressed. I had just rode 102 miles with an open cut in the tire, allowing other road debris to enter the wound, and it held up. I'm ordering a new set.

            Weird Casing Bulge

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire - 700x25:

            Initial reactions were the same as everyone else: great tire for money, good rolling, long wearing.

            However, after 600 miles my rear tire developed a bulge in the casing, making it unrideable. I contacted Vittoria, and I am awaiting a new replacement tire. Today I discovered my front tire has now also developed deformities in the casing, just like the rear did. Now I have to order a new tire and wait on two shipments.

            These tires are great at first glance but they are only a dismal 26TPI! This makes me believe that is the fault of the casing failures. It cannot handle the high max 130PSI rating and/or durability of road forces.

            In the long run you will have to spend more when these prematurely fail on you and you buy something else. Unless Vittoria makes a new version, steer clear is my advice.

            Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Road Tire - 700x25:

            This is not a foldable tire; so not so useful for carrying as a spare, and is a bit harder to install than a foldable. That said, as a bigger cyclist (6'2", 185 lbs), it's more durable than most and more puncture resistant. A great training tire; so the slightly greater weight is not a burden.

              I'm 6'1" and weight 202 pounds and needed tires to hold my "power" without looking "flat", these 700-25 gave me all I needed, the 700-23 doesn't resist. They look slim, but perform better and last longer. The roll like feather and has a great grip even in rainy days. I just love them.

                  At first I thought these tires slowed me down, because as my boy friend said "you ordered truck tires!" Then after a few rides on these tires, I got stronger, because it didn't kill me and I have a feeling these will go like a year without giving me a flat so if you want road bike tires that last and last but are not so fast go for these low priced babies.
