        I was on a 6 day road trip and just put the tires on. They weren't bad but going down hill fast they got a little squirrely. Going down another hill hit a 2" rock and blow the tire have to replace it. Going to try some thing else.

          Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Pro SE Road Tire:

          I recently moved and my new local roads have a lot more glass, screws, and discarded alternators. Racing weight tires were just getting chewed up with flats every other day. These tires provide a lot more durability without big sacrifices on weight, performance, and looks. I've had these for a few months, and they're holding up great. For their price point, this is a 5-star deal.

          Great price, seem to be alittle on the small side of 25s. I'm a mountain biker and most of my money goes to maintenance of the mountain bikes. My Sworks road bike is a little neglected!! So I'm not sure if the old tires were just that bad and wore out or these tires ride that wonderful. Fantastically smooth running tire, I have about 200 miles on them with no issues.

                    I need to amend my earlier not-so-complimentary review: All things I said about these 700x25 Zaffro Pro's being an entirely different tire and the harsh ride remain, but on my last ride I was squeezed by traffic through pavement carpeted with broken beer bottles (you know the sound: crunch-crunch-crunch). Amazingly, not only were there no flats but there's not so much as a scratch on the tires. These new Zaffros are tough! So, is the harsh ride worth the no flats? Hmmm. Let me think about that....

                      My last set of this tire gave me about 2k miles.
                      One of the tires had a defective bead and I blew 2 tubes before I realized the problem.
                      NASHBAR sent out a replacement immediately, so Kudos to tnem. They stand behind their products - no question about that!
                      And I was satisfied enough with the first set to buy again.

                        Comments about Vittoria Zaffiro Pro SE Road Tire:

                        I've used Zaffiro Pros before and have found them to be a decent, even respectable, tire. Those tires have the rather gaudy red sidewall label that is pictured here (as of 04/15). The Zaffiro Pro tires I received, however, are of a very different construction. I've put about 150 miles on one pair and I keep lowering the pressure trying to reproduce the compliant ride of my earlier Zaffiro Pros. Alas, but these new tires have managed to turn my early season steel-is-real training bike into the punishing ride of my high performance aluminum bike (and this is with the 25mm version - I can't imagine what the 23mm are like). They do seem to roll rather well, but at a cost. You might like them, but I'm returning the second pair in search of something with more supple sidewalls. Be advised that the earlier reviews here may be of a completely different tire.
