Strengths:    Reasonably durable

Weaknesses:    Ride quality, handling, flat resistance

Bottom Line:   
I'm shocked at some of the good reviews here. Compared to most decent multi-purpose training/racing tires, these are terrible. The ride quality is poor, cornering is awful, and they are flat prone. And heavy to boot. I'm a very experienced rider (over 20 years), and I would advise staying away from the Rubino Pros. There are much better tires out there for the same money.

Strengths:    No Flats

Weaknesses:    None that I've noticed.

Bottom Line:   
I'm relatively new to the road game, but have been a Mt. Biker for 20 years. The Rubino Pro came stock on my bike and after riding them for a year/ 2-3 thousand miles, I'm very happy to say (knock on wood) I haven't flatted on them. While I can't speak of a comparison for weight/grip, I never felt them to be sluggish or under par when cornering at speed. The fact that I haven't flatted in so long is impressive. The tires are 23 in width and I run them at 120 psi. THey are finally starting to show some wear, so a buddy of mine recommended the Vittoria Diamonte Pro and 25 width. I'm going to give them a shot and at least I will start to have a comparison.

Date Reviewed: September 28, 2012

Strengths:    Great confidence in the wet. Long lasting. Reasonably priced. Large variety of colours.

Weaknesses:    The new version with 150 threads per inch are the ones to get, with improved comfort and less rolling resistance.

Bottom Line:   
I notice that some reviewers have mentioned susceptabilty to cuts in the treads. I have never experienced this and have been using Rubinos for several years.

Date Reviewed: September 15, 2012

Strengths:    As an all rounder this tyre fits the bill admirably, living in melbourne where we can often get 4 seasons in one day it's a good value fit

Weaknesses:    Susceptible to Knicks and cuts

Bottom Line:   
Ive tried all sorts but always came back to the rubino, so some plus 40 yrs experience and I always come back to them.

Strengths:    Rolling resistance, High Pressure, Grip, light

Weaknesses:    Durability, cut resistance,

Bottom Line:   
Very disappointing in the tires, I bought them as a fast commuting tire (about 25 miles a day). Was drawn by high pressure and past reviews. Tire just did not hold up. I've run Tioga City slickers for years which averaged 1500-2000 miles before substantial damage or squaring off. Changed to 700C wheels this year and needed to find a new tire. This tire (the Vittoria) lasted about a month and a half maybe 500 miles. Rear tire eventually sliced open (1 inch or so) without my hitting anything significant. Examining the tire there were slices all over the tire (never saw this on the Tioga's running the same route). Front tire is also already squaring off. Tire grips nicely in both good weather and wet I like the high pressure and weight. But with a durability issue like this I won't buy them again. Suggest avoiding them.

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 »

Vittoria Rubino Pro Tubular

So I have 3 Vittoria Corsa Evo CX tubular tires for my "event' carbon wheels. The front tire has never failed - in all of maybe 400 miles of riding. The rear tire(s) have failed 3x times now. The first in a gran fondo last year - slow leak. The second burst 18 miles into its inaugural ride. A ... Read More »
