Strengths:    Flat resistant, high mileage, good traction, low rolling resistance

Weaknesses:    My LBS doesn't carry them. Be warned that if you buy online from

Bottom Line:   
I put 2,500 miles on my last set (700x23) with only one flat. I'm a pretty big guy- 195 lbs- so that's a lot of miles. I've never had any other brand of tire that gets anywhere close to the mileage with the flat resistance and relatively low weight (225 g).

Strengths:    4 seasons
Puncture resistance
Fast rolling
Smooth ride
Easy to install
Great in wet weather


Weaknesses:    Nothing yet, maybe weight for weight weenies.

Bottom Line:   
I am just getting into cycling. Although grew up riding bikes I really like the benefits you get from cycling, purchased a Scott CR1 comp that had a set of conti ultra race tires stock. Bought these in the 700C x 25. I am amazed by the difference it made. Living in Portland Oregon, I had many cyclist tell me they are great puncture resistant, fast rolling, good in wet conditions, and make a great everyday tire. I am nothing but impressed! And they are cheaper then Gatorskins.

Strengths:    ~ Tougher than many 500g wire-bead tires
~ Rolls nice
~ Incredible cornering grip
~ Superior flat protection, unlike its sibling Open Corsa EVO CX
~ Holds 145psi tightly
~ Easy to mount
~ 150tpi comfort and compliance


Weaknesses:    ~ Not cheap, in USA. ProBikeKit in UK has the BEST global price w/ free shipping
~ Not heavy/not light


Bottom Line:   
This review is for the 700x25c version. I use this tire on my trainer; 2001 Cannondale Bad Boy Sport Hybrid. Although it lacks the Mithril center performance layer of the Rubino Pro Tech III - the Rubino Pro III has a supple feel similar to the EVO CX....but with far better flat protection. Compared to the Conti GP4K - this tire accelerates like an Audi R8 - as opposed to the Continental's BMW M3.

The file tread has these water dispersing Chevrons, but I doubt its even necessary on such a thin-footprint tire. At under 250g/tire - I find them a great value...and trust me - I've tried them ALL.

Strengths:    Awesome tire so far. I have been riding Vredestein Fortezza TriComp tires for the past several years with no compaints. This is until the tire starts to wear out. Than the flats start. I do alot of road riding in and around Park City, Utah. The shoulders of the roads around here seem to always have lots of junk, sharp rocks, glass, staples, nails, You name it , its there. I have recently started getting to many flats. With tupes costing around 7.00 a piece well its to expensive to always put in a new tube. Fixing them isnt always a 100% fix. I have been riding the same junk filled shoulders for the past month on these tires with no flats. The tires still look brand new. Approx, 500 miles.

Weaknesses:    None,,, Yet. ?

Bottom Line:   
Great tire. Bought mine through Bike tires direct. for 7.00 dollars less than the MSRP listed above. this tire rolls very well, very low rolling resistance. Great cornering, I inflate mine to 110 PSI. If you want a bullet proof tire. This is the one.

Rubino Pro 3 Slick VS. Regular Pro 3

I wanted to know from someone who's owned both the Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 Slicks and the regular Pro 3s how they compare to each other. I've always enjoyed the regular Pro 3 because it's durable, rolls well, and has good flat protection. I'm curious, though, to know if the Slick version offers any di ... Read More »

Prorace 3 Front - Vittoria Rubino Pro Slicks Rear

Works well! Someone had purposed running a Prorace in the front and another more durable tire in the rear as a compromise because the Mich doesn't wear well/cuts easily. I couldn't tell the difference between two Proraces and the Prorace/Rubino combo. The ride is excellent with latex tubes which ... Read More »

Vittoria Rubino Pro....2 or 3?

I can't really tell the difference? I've been on the pro2's for about a year and need a new rear. I started searching for the pro2's and saw there is now a pro3 out. Any idea what was changed? Seems like the pro2 got consistently GREAT reviews, but the pro3 is more hit or miss. It seems like alot ... Read More »
