A high mileage classic.

Vittoria's Rubino Pro III Road Tire, the third generation of the well-respected Rubino Pro, offers even nicer ride qualities while retaining its incredible durability.

First, the casing has been upgraded from 120 TPI to an incredible 150 TPI for a supple ride, durability, and low rolling resistance. Kevlar® Endura 3D compound provides long tread life and better grip especially in wet weather. The tread design has also been changed to the Prism Vector Design for more reliability when cornering while retaining a smooth center for fast rolling.

This version of the Rubino Pro III is available in 700c (622 ISO) and various widths and colors. Folding bead. Claimed weight: 230g (700c x 23mm).

A great tire to use on bad roads

I put these tires on as a trial and have learned to love them. I have them on two bicycles now. North Orange County (Fullerton) and surrounding cities roads are rapidly becoming more like Belgium's pave than asphalt. Cracks, breaks, potholes, etc. It's easier to point out the good parts of the road rather than the bad parts. These tires seem to be impervious to those conditions and after hundreds of miles I have not had a flat. The bad roads also cause truck tires to lose their retreads and we pick up pieces of wire all the time, so far they have not made it through the protective strip. These tires can be a bit harsh riding if they are overinflated so one has to experiment a bit to get the proper pressure. For me, it's about 100 psi, and I weight in the mid 150's. My impression is that they work well, last a long time and don't cost a lot compared to the competition.

They were a great price, and seemed to roll and handle well, but my rear tire ended up with a pretty big gash in it after just a few hundred miles. Perhaps I just ran over the wrong thing, though, if so, I didn't notice when. I only ride on the road and do my best to avoid most debris.

Performance and puncture resistance truly meet with this tire. I would highly recommend them! Going to give the Rubino Pro Tech's a try next.

Rough road eating 28c

I ride a lot of rough road surfaces in western PA... including several chipsealed (tar and chip treatment on asphalt). So I decided to try a little wider tire after riding 23c's all the time. I started with 25c Bontragers that came stock with my new bike. They offered little improvement smoothing out rough roads vs. my typical 23's (at least not to my notice). Then I replaced those with 28c Rubino Pro's. Love them. They are fairly light, smooth running, and nice traction in dry and wet conditions. No flats in the first couple hundred miles and have hit some rough spots and holes (riding in a group). As I said, these are great tires, and I would recommend them to anyone who is laying down the miles on mixed road surfaces.

Good quality tire for the price. They hold up well for training in the northwest where gravel, potholes, and rain soaked roads are a normal feature on many of our spring rides.

Best training tires I've ever had. I ride 2,500 milesyear and have usually been able to only replace these annually. They don't handle like a traditional training tire (which are not at all supple and corner like crap) but closer to a low-end race tire. I have rarely flatted but know when I do get flats it's probably time to replace.

I have been using this tire for more than five years now. I have tried three others during that time and keep coming back to VIttoria's Pro III. It is a great all-around tire for training and racing. It is also (surprisingly) durable. I tear through other tires in almost half the time.

Avid cyclist. Rode 2500 miles year to date. Average ride is 40-50 miles.

These are 23mm and mounted on a 2011 cannondale synapse 3 full carbon frame. I run 115 front and 120 psi rear.

They are much more responsive than

Schwable (tires that came on bike) and continental gators both were 25mm.

Puncture resistance is great. Replaces rear tire after 2500 miles due to a side wall puncture from a piece of sheet metal. The other flat was due to a nail.

The ride is a bit rough compared to the other 2 tires mentioned but probably due to tire width and pressure. The trade off is the bike feels a lot more nimble.

The red color option looks great on my bike.

I have been buying Vittoria Rubino Pro tires for several years and they have never failed me. They have an incredibly long life and I have experienced very few flats. They provide a very smooth ride on my Cannondale road bike. In addition, they have always been a relatively easy tire to get off the wheel and back on again on those rare occasions when I have had a flat - that is a very important selling point for a woman like me who has small hands and not exceptional hand strength. They used to be a better value but apparently all rubber products have soared in price.

I have been using these tires for a few years now. In the summer they are great and last for around 4-5000 miles as long as you dont have too many cuts from class etc. Over the winter the wet winter here in PDX I get around 3-4000 miles. so I'm pretty happy with them

I ride every day during the year (except for snow, ice, and very hard rain), so I need really good tires on my Cannondale road bike. The Vittorio Rubino Pro III tires are the best - they last and they perform. They are also easy to get off and on when you have a flat - another very important consideration. And they also do not break the bank on price. There is nothing not to like about these tires.
