Strengths:    Great handling, excellent on the descents and curbs.

Weaknesses:    Lose air overnight

Bottom Line:   
I've had these tired for over 2 years with over 1000 miles ridden and I haven't had any of the problems with flats that I've read about here. I think these problems might come from the level of knowledge and skills the technician or person that installed them. I ride over various types of surfaces with no problems so far. I love these tires and will buy again.

Strengths:    Low rolling resistance, excellent grip, fast!

Weaknesses:    Low puncture resistance.

Bottom Line:   
I have tried them since April this year and rode for about 1000 km (625 mi). Rear tyre had two punctures and I am afraid it's going to necessary to replace it soon. This is my first experience with tubulars and I haven't used other tyre to compare to. It's a pity... I always wanted to ride Vittoria's tubolares and so far I've got frustrated. I hope this rear tyre would last a couple of hundred miles more.

Strengths:    Comfort, Grip - also in the prices, weight/puncture resistance aspect

Weaknesses:    Price, new valve system has no benefit - but is pricey, price, durability, price

Bottom Line:   
Despite only being 21 mm wide, the comfort is great on my Zipp 303 - supposedly due to the latex inner tube.
I run the with sealant and manage to close 9 of 10 flats with superglue from the outside and sealant from within.

Strengths:    Comfortable ride, good handling.

Weaknesses:    Lose air faster than most tubulars, tubes tend to rupture long before casing is worn - and long before I'm ready to shell out for a new tire.

Bottom Line:   
This is the new 320 tpi tire. I like the grip and ride quality of the corsas, but was hoping for improved longevity. Unfortunately I have ridden these less than a season and one is already shot. I pumped up the tires prior to a group ride (120 psi) and was putting my helmet on when I heard the dreaded pop and hiss. Sure enough the front tire was flat. No major damage to the casing or other problem, the tube just failed. I may try some sealant, but haven't had much luck repairing Vittorias that way. I probably have less than a thousand miles on the tires since I mounted them. I have had this problem with previous Vittorias and can no longer justify buying them. I've had far better luck with Tufos and will probably go back to those.

Strengths:    Only the glue that held them on.

Weaknesses:    Highest dollar per mile you'll ever spend.

Unsafe. Would you take a high speed corner with an unpredictable tire?


Bottom Line:   
What is the simplest way to sum up my feelings for these "top-of-the-line race tires"?

TOTAL POS.

2 Brand new tires mounted on a new set of Zipp 303's. This was my dream set up. 10 miles into my first ride and the rear tire blew. Not from a puncture but a blowout at the base of the valve stem, rendering the tire useless. Several days later while pumping air into the other tire (you heard right, I wasn't even riding!)it blew as well. EXACT same problem, a blowout at the base of the valve stem.

If you read the other reviews you will see that others have had similar problems, yet I talked to Vittoria's US Distributor in OK and they say they haven't heard of any issues of this nature. They're either deaf or simply don't care. I now have two tires hanging on my wall that will never see the road again.

Do yourself a favor and spend your money elsewhere DO NOT BUY THESE TIRES.

Read the recent threads about the great sale prices. Did a search and found many, many remarks about poor longevity, cut resistance and great suppleness and feel with some latex tubes.
