Weaknesses: Trainer type tires that are a bit heavier than true racing slicks.
This review is regarding the 700 x 25mm option.
"The Pro Slick is not a true slick, but an intermediate type tyre, with narrow strips of tread surface left and right of the slick center. The tires are billed as trainers, which means they are slighter heavier than pure racing slicks and should have a bit more durability than race tires. One of the pluses is that Vittoria states their Pro Slick utilizes the same rubber compound as the more expensive Rubino Pro."

Thanks! :)Read More »
