Road tyres – Vittoria Rubino pro 3's
Better off with these for a little morePosted 3 years ago
They seem a good tyre for the price, but you are all talking of them as commuter tyres, i was thinking of putting these on my carbon bike – is that false economy?Posted 3 years ago
Looking for a comfortable yet fast rolling tyre (that won’t break the bank) for an upcoming coast to coast ride.
Thats the info i was looking for, thanks Jonathan 😀
Doing Walney to Whitby in a month & looking for a tyre that will roll well on those bad roads without being draggy. Not a racer, and just getting into audax myself. The route is 185 miles although we are splitting it into two days to enjoy ourselves.
Slicks or regular tyres?Posted 3 years agoprawnyMember
I got them for commuting because they are one of the cheapest really good tyres, they’re light comfy and fast rolling, my commute was 40 miles a day on a proper road bike with as little luggage as possible.
They’re a great tyre for people who can’t afford or don’t want to spend £40 per tyre. I currently have zaffriro pros on my carbon bike, cost me £16 for the pair. Bit wooden, but they go round.Posted 3 years agooldgitMember
My favorite tyre.
Use 23’s and 25’s on my training bike.
Use them for my Audax bike so comfy.
Use them for cycling trips because they’re so reliable.
I ran out of race tyres for the last road race of the season, so I lobbed on some old 25c Rubinos and ended up contesting the sprint on them.
Needing tyres in a hurry I bought Gatorskins. Several tears after day one, puncture on day two. Too tough, uncomfortable and misbehave. Rubinos seem almost too good.
jonk mentioned the Fortezza Tri comps, a slightly snazzier version IMO, but they wear far far quicker.
Doing a 400km this Saturday on mine.
Edit; They’re always about £17 at Ribbles anyway. And I find them very easy to fit and remove by hand.Posted 3 years ago
