Optimized for excellence.

Vittoria's Zaffiro Road Tire is an affordable training tire that delivers many high-end features. It features Vittoria's Dot C.O.M. ("dot Computer Optimized Measure") concept, which allows for calibration of the size of the tread dots according to their position on the tread surface. The dots are smaller in the center, for less rolling resistance, and larger towards the sides, for better grip, creating a tire that is fast on the straightaways and reliable in corners. It also contains Vittoria's Aramid 3D compound for puncture protection, as well as a more robust casing combined with wire beads made from four twisted steel wires for better flexibility.

The Zaffiro features a wire bead and 26 tpi casing. Black tread/black sidewall. 700c x 23mm (23-622 ISO; 130 psi max; 340g), 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO; 130 PSI max; 350g) or 700x28mm (28-622 ISO; 115 psi max; 400g).

This tire replaced an OEM tire. Smooth riding and low resistance. Only draw back is it is a stiff tire and takes some effort to install. Otherwise perfect. It is a great value.

I have about 1000 miles on the set w/no flats. Good tire for winter training, but a little harsh on the road feel. Looks like I will get 2000-2500 miles out of them, which is great for the rough roads I ride.

We have some coarse chip-and-seal county roads here and these Vittorias help a lot. Installed very easily. Seem like a very good tire at a steal of a price. Recommended

I got a pair of these for my neighbor who has been wanting to get into commuting by bike. He was running 23mm road tires and I was able to get these in a 25mm width that still fit within his rear stays (28mm tires just wouldn't fit). He hasn't had any flats in over a month of commuting 22 miles round trip several days a week and he says the added volume is nice on the surface streets.

Original equipment on my Felt Z85, they lasted over 5,000 towncounty road miles in SE Wisconsin. So purchased as replacements - no need to try something else.

I am a rec rider at about 180lbs, and this one rolls fine and corners ok for training and fitness riding that I do in the midwest. Mounted with no trouble, it is a correct sized 700 x 25 as my last set of the same size was smaller.

Used this as part of a vintage 10-speed rebuild. After about 100 miles, this tire has performed flawlessly. Smooth rolling, no puncture flats. Great value

have to replace started getting punctures after 1,600 miles (rear)

I guess I was tempted to buy these for the price and the puncture resistance claim. My rear tire is looking pretty worn after 1,800 miles. In the last 200 miles the rear tire has punctured twice. I hate repairing flats and would gladly pay $10 more per tire to get better reliability. So no, I would not recommend.

I use 700x28 mm on a road bike in SE Florida, typically 50 mile rides on AIA a couple of times a week. Riding across bridges with high cross winds, metal grates, and wet concrete was pretty terrifying when these tires were new. For a long time I wouldn't inflate above 100 psi. They actually grip better now, but the current surface is soft it has worn down in patches from a few hard brake situations and they are very cut up from debris. They are OK for normal cornering and the ride is reasonably comfortable.

Bead Blew Apart During Ride

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

These tires felt smooth and fast but fell apart the first 20 miles. The rubber that surrounds the cloth bead is peeing off along the entire bead surface. They were mounted correctly. I have been a bike tech for 10 years. Spend your money on a safer tire. This is a safety hazard.

I bought these tires for my first flat bar rodie. I originally had some KENDA KRITERIUM 700 X 23 but those were a bit too narrow. As I am using this bike for commuting I didn't find it to safe for me yet. As I've heard 700 X 25 provide a better stability at least better control. Can't say much anything else but tires feel very smooth and no loss of control either. Thru the bumps and tears on the street the tire had pretty good rolling resistance. Will provide status after at least the first hundred miles or so.

These tires are not the greatest, but they're far from the worst. At $13, to get anything made by Vittoria is a steal. Traction is great on dry pavement and decent on wet pavement. I feel confident riding these in any weather.

Punish me later, I don't rotate my tires so my front is still going, but I got just about 3000 miles in on my rear tire. I ride a mix of smooth and decaying asphalt roads with the ever-increasingly usual beer bottle remains in our bike paths. I do use a tire liner so although a few of those chips have cut the tires I have had no flats and no blow-outs. Even with one long slice no cross face tears. I bought at the sale price but even if I bought regular price it would be a durable value.

Vittoria has always been a solid standby for me. All of their tires are a great value. I mostly roll on Specialized Armadillos and pump to max psi every time I ride. These tend to pick up more debris and get flat easier...still not as much as a Continental Ultra Sport.

I have the Zaffiro in a 28mm for my commuter -an older Schwinn la Tour- they look quite nice matching the tube shape in profile. They ride very comfortably and though not fast they have a good smooth feel on the road and not terribly slow. Over all good contact rolling and cornering, the tread seems adequate and casing durable. I've only had them on for a month but feel confident that they will be a long lasting tire as I'm running Vittoria's Rubino 23mm on my racetrain bike and they are just showing wear at well over 2K miles. I have become a fan of Vittorias price value, ride quality, and longevity.

I've had two or three sets, 25s and 28s, and hardly a flat. Wore the tires out on the rims. Especially at the price, and obviously if you are not expecting that pricey tire ride, these are a great value.
