Longevity

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I'm pleasantly surprised with how long these tires hold up. I've taken the same pair from late fall, through some sporadic winter riding (even on the trainer), and into mid spring. No flats. (Yet.) They feel a bit more supple than Gatorskins, and they won't throw off your bike's color scheme. I happen to like Conti orange, but it's not for everyone--the Rubino Pro 3 lets you run jet black if that's your bag.

Good training tires

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have put thousands of miles on these bad boys this past Fall and Winter and I am pretty impressed. Tire wear is very good, I'm able to get 2500 miles off a set (I do rotate them at ~1000 miles). They are also pretty puncture resistant, no cuts on cinders so far (just three pinch flats). Rolling resistance is okay, better than my heavy duty Continental 4seasons but they definitely don't feel as supple or fast as my Schwalbe Ones. They offer a pretty good middle zone between durability, puncture resistance, rolling resistance, and price that make them great training tires.

The one disappointing thing about these tires is that they do not grip very well in the wet... Compared to aforementioned Contis or Schwalbes I feel more slippage and less confidence once the roads get wet. I would not recommend these tires for all out descending. Despite this weakness these are still good training tires if you can get them at a good price. Just be careful in the turns!

Great all around tires

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Very happy with these tires. I moved from 23 to 25 so i am not sure how much of the smoothness I am experiencing I would contribute to the larger size, new tires or the model/brand. These tires are one of the best values in the market considering their excellent performance. I will have to see about its puncture resistance but so far so good.

Sticking with these for Winter

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I make a point of trying out as many tyres as possible, but for getting back to the basics of a simple tire that holds up over the long haul, these are the top choice right now. Perfect tire for winter for the durability, puncture protection, and the price. Have been rocking 25mm, but I'll be giving 28mm's a shot for the nastier weather that's about to hit Utah.

The reviews were right

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I was looking for a tire to replace the vredestein fortezzas , since they no longer came in yellow. These Vitoria Rubino Pro 3s are better. Grip, responsiveness, and the feeling of lighter weight ( although actually slightly heavier) give the bike a sharper, more controlled feel. And the yellow is spot on!

My new favorite tire

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I love this tires they're so comfortable!! I decided to purchase them because of the Great review and did not disappoint me they feel great and not to mention that when they go on sale at competitive cyclist you can grab them for almost half the price.

Great all around

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Stock tires on my CAAD10 were aweful replaced them with these after my first ride. Bought these because of the good reviews as an all around tire and they have lived up to the hype. Rolls smooth handles well and looks great comparable to gp4000s' but cost less and in my experience more durable

All Around Solid Tire

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've had Vittoria Rubino tires for three seasons, driven on Utah bike paths and traffic-congested, potholed roads in Boston. Husband and I both have rubino tires on our bikes and have had no slipping and zero flat tires in three years! They look awesome and are very dependable. Great road tire, definitely worth investing in.

All Around Solid Tire

They see me rollin'

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These are my workhorse tires. They were OEM on my bike, and I have had no reason to switch them out. The roll good, have good grip in the corner, and the green matches the green accents on my bike.

Buy them on sale and hang on to them for when you need to change them out.

My training tire of choice

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

When you get sick of sidewall cuts on your revered GP4000s then make the change over to this fantastic tire.

I made the switch in 2013 and have yet to retire one due to cuts, only wear. Mind you, this isn't my race day tire but I have raced on it on rainy days and some races with questionable roads and/or gravel and I don't feel like I gave up any advantage.

Plenty supple for training and long rides and even hooked up enough for racing.

Great looking, smooth roller

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Two things, OK three, led me to this tire. First, I'm a big fan of Gatorskins but just felt that I could get a better roll out of a different tire. So, my first requirement was a durable tire with better rolling characteristics. Check #1. Second, my Pinarello Razha has orange accents and after replacing the bar tape with Cinelli Orange bar tape (yep, got that here too!) I focused on the tires. This tire was available with Orange stripes. Check #2. Third, well sort of, I was hoping these might drop in price a little (though regular price wasn't bad). Every day during the TdF I'd watch for the daily specials here. Bingo!!! They went on sale and I snagged them! I had no issues putting them on my bike and they roll great. Though they can take 140 PSI I have only been able to get my floor pump up to 120 PSI. Time for a new pump?! Nonetheless, very happy with these tires and am now "Oranged Out!"

Great looking, smooth roller

solid training tyre that is race-able

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This tyre is durable and light but not the most durable or the most light. It is very very raceable but frankly not the most tacky. It fits in that rare, "every tyre" category but doesn't shine anywhere in particular.

Great tire

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I purchased a set of these to replace stock Bontrager R3s and the different is night and day. After a week of riding on the R3s there were several cuts from general road riding. I replaced them with a set of green Rubinos and have put 3000 miles on them. They handle well in all road conditions from smooth pavement to chip sealed roads. I unfortunately had to replace one due to running over a piece of glass that would've taken out a car tire but have no complaints with these tires!

Where the Rubber Meets the Road

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Overall this tire meets my expectations in three areas: price, comfort, and performance. Great handling in the mountains along with good rolling resistance makes this a great tire at this price point. Wear and tear is right up there with the best of the best as far as durability and flat protection are concerned, not to mention that it comes in several colors to spice up your bike...try a pair, you'll be glad you did and let me know how they feel

Love these tires.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I have 1400 miles on these so far, average 200 miles per week mostly on asphalt roads and bikeways. The mix of performance, style and durability is very good for my riding habits. So far I find the optimal pressure for me is 130 psi. and I am 200 lbs. The color options on the folding tire allow me to use a tire that looks great on my bike and carry a spare on long trips just in case.

Love these tires.

Love 'em!!!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I rode Conti Gatorskins for years as my go-to trainer. I'm 1,000 miles into my first set of Rubino III's and I won't go back to Gators. They roll better, smoother ride, better handling. I rotated after 500 & again at 1,000 and I really can't see much wear. I've ridden smooth roads, roads hammered by construction, CO mountain roads, cobbled asphalt, and so far (knock wood) zero flats!

Good all-around trainer tires!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I put this tire slightly above Continental Gatorskin for Training rides. They are quick, fairly supple, wear very well and handle nicely, and have good puncture resistance. Also if needed, like the Gatorskin, for Max Toughness they come in the Tech Edition which has sidewall reinforcement just like the Gatorskin.

Does this tire come in a 700x25? I only see 23 & 28.
If a 700x25 fits ok on my Mavic Road rims will the 28 be ok or is that too close to call witrhout mounting one first?
Thanks

In reference to the detail picture of the tire tread, which way should the tire be mounted for the tread to be in the proper rolling direction? Most tires I have had show an installation arrow on the sidewall, but my set of these do not.

Thanks.

What does the one year warranty cover? They say puncture resistant but on my fourth ride I already have flatted twice and have a whole in the tire.
