Strengths:    Looks. Roll. Ease of installation. "Pro Racer" design.

Weaknesses:    Build. Flat protection. Longevity.

Bottom Line:   
First off, I have owned 3 sets of Vittoria Rubino Pro tires and have ridden 2k plus miles on them without a flat. That being said, I have been a fan of Vittoria tires for quite some time.

I really REALLY wanted these tires to hold up to the ideal in my mind and not be apart of the many statistics that tell horror stories of the flimsy nature of the Vittoria Open Corsa CX tires. I purchased a 23 mm set for the front and a 25 mm set for the back. I have literally been on 5 rides and experienced 1 flat and a gapping gash down the middle of the back tire about .5 inch long. In total, the rear tire had roughly 95 miles of use. I weigh 201 lbs and am an experienced rider. I am completely disappointed with these tires.

In essence, these tires are truly "race" tires in the sense of abuse them and replace them. And if you have that kind of budget, more power to you. However, if you are looking for longevity from your tires, DON'T PURCHASE THESE.

Strengths:    That's a hard one

Weaknesses:    Cut easily.
Pricey


Bottom Line:   
These are some the worst tires I have purchased, and they are not cheap. I only bought one because the shop was out of Rubinos, and I figured for the price it would be superior.
WRONG! They don't have the reliability of the Rubino.
After my first ride the tread looked like Freddie Krueger got a hold of it.
Slashes, and gashes everywhere on the tread.
I have flatted with them on every other ride. Today on my ride, I got in one mile, wherein I had two flats.
I have ZERO confidence in them, and doing my best to find another Rubino Pro.

Strengths:    Fast rolling and great for climbing!

Weaknesses:    Very difficult to mount, poor handling at 115-120psi

Bottom Line:   
I never felt secure with these tires untill I reduced the pressure to 95psi! Nowhere near the recommended 115-120psi. I weigh 150lbs and when riding at 120psi the bike was bouncing and sliding all over the place. I can not attest for its longevity because I 've only had a couple of hundred miles on them without any flats. Also, they were extremely hard to mount on Vuelta SLR's

Strengths:    Wear

Weaknesses:    Very poor grip on wet roads

Bottom Line:   
I noticed that on a steep climb, when I got out of the saddle the back wheel spun - never happened before to that extent. Then on a slight climb when I got out of the saddle I had my first fall. The back tyre just slid the wheel from under me. Two days later when cornering and not braking slowly, the same thing happened and down I came again - this time bringing a club mate with me! I have changed back to Continental 4000S - and feel much safer since.
