For the longest time I was in serious like with Veloflex Master Clincher tires. Before that Vittoria Rubino Pros had my attention and prior to that the Continental Grand Prix series topped the charts. Then I picked up a pair of Pirelli PZero Velos and now I am officially in love. The traction on the PZeros makes cornering at high speeds worry free. Speaking of speed, these are tires feel fast and improve acceleration. Additionally, when I am sitting in a 22-25 mph pocket they really have a glide-like quality, especially on smooth pavement and warm SoCal days. I prefer riding with maximum levels of air pressure, which can sometimes take a toll on your body, but the PZeros have provided an excellent somewhat cushioned riding experience. Plus, the minimal graphics (clean black and silver colorway) gets 5 stars and are aesthetically fresh! I highly recommend these bad boys. Nice price from WBW, too. Buy a pair and you will see the light.
Daily commuter in the rainy & gritty Pacific Northwest, and every time it's time for new tires, I go looking for a set that's going to be better than the last. These are the best I've found in 18 years of searching.
Great grip, even cornering fast on freshly rain-soaked streets, I'm more nervous than they are. They feel speedy, if that means anything, and the 28s certainly cushion some blows.
I ride through some industrial zones with bumpy RR-track crossings where the shoulders are usually littered with truck-bed debris screws, staples, scrap metal, etc. Flatted out plenty of times over the years, but so far with 1,000 miles or so on these, no flats at all. knocking on wood here.
Maybe not the lightest, but pretty darn light for the protection they offer. I much prefer these to the gatorskins, armadillo elites, & endurance tires I've used before.
