The green is the giveaway.

Look at photos of most races, and you’ll see a sea of all-black tires. Look at Roubaix, Flanders, or any of the other cobbled classics, and you’ll see a lot more earth tones popping up. There are a few tire manufacturers capable of producing tires for one of the most difficult sporting events on the planet, and Vittoria is one of them. The Open Pave EVO CG III is the latest in a long line of ultra-supple tires designed to take the edge off the cobblestones.

Sublime

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Vittoria has been manufacturing pro-level bicycle tires for 60 years. It shows. Their range and R&D is pretty amazing. These Pave EVO CG III's were specially designed to be used on the cobblestones (pave) in the hotly contested and highly demanding UCI "Spring Classic" races in Europe like the Tour de Flanders and Paris-Roubaix.

This is one strong and tough tire. Yet with 320 tpi a very supple one! And, somehow, fairly light (257 g in size 25 mm) -especially given the strength and excellent puncture protection.

The grip, braking, cornering, and road "feel" is fantastic. The latter, especially, set these Pave III's apart for me.

I use Vittoria "Corsa" race tires in 23 mm size for race or timed runs on clean, dry, smooth roads. Otherwise, I use these Pave III's in the 25 mm size as my general fast training and riding tire (especially in the winter) because I have terrible roads in my area.

In summary: Great fast training/riding tire for the rough (chip & seal) roads in my area -and yours.

By the way, the puncture protection is really exceptional with these Pave's. In 6+ months of near daily use, on crappy roads strewn with glass and debris (in town), I have experienced exactly one flat! And that was from a large industrial staple. That would have flatted any tire.

Vittoria Pave CG III's are great tires!

A tyre made for the sussex roads

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Riding the roads of Sussex are what i call a training ground for the spring classics races, such as Paris-Roubaix. The roads are a heavy mix of rough tarmac, pot holes and gravel. Over the winter months i had been riding Conti GP 4 Seasons. Although they are great tyres for winter months of rain , i wanted something more supple for the rough roads. I was recommend the Open Pave tyres and what a difference i felt on even the first ride, Running them at 80psi. When riding through gravel i felt a massive difference in comfort. On wet tarmac the grip was excellent when committed to turns. All though i don't try and aim for the pot holes but when travelling speed and on a road less than familiar, they can creep up on you. Great thing though is that they held together, which set my confidence on these tyres to an all time high. With out doubt the best tyre i have used.

Just swapped out my Bontrager R4 25mm 220 tpi clinchers for these Vittoria 27mm tires. All I can say is what a great tire. I don't know if its the extra 2mm or the super high thread count, but I'm 175lbs and I ran these at 110 lbs and they were like riding a magic carpet. I could probably run them at 100lbs with no problem. I ride regular chip seal but in Colorado there are a lot of expansion cracks and hitting them can be bone jarring, even on my Domane. But with these they all but disappear...love em.

what size tubes for 27C ?

Rides nice, 25C Smaller than expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The 27C tires roll smooth, feel great on chip seal roads and were confidence inspiring on a recent 12 mile winding descent in a surprise rain storm. The sizes are a bit funky. Bought the 25C first but it measured the same width casing as a 23C Corsa CX. Exchanged for the 27 C which was 4 mm wider than the 25C version. The 27C version weighs 247grams. Backcountry was great with the return. Over all very happy with the 27C version.
