This tire is everything that bicycle rolling resistance claims. It is light, extremely fast, supple and gets up to speed quickly. I easily gained 1-2 mph on the same stretch of roads that I ride. I deducted one star because of the poor puncture protection. With just 45 miles on the tire, I suffered a one inch cut in the tire and had sealant spray all over the the place. However, I believe that any road tire would have suffered the same cut. Overall, great tire for race day, but not good for training or group rides.
Only recently have I begun to use this tire brand more extensively, than the Continental Grand Prix I use to ride on my road bike. Main reason at first purchased new aero rims, and could not for the life of me install or even remotely take off the tire from the rim, even with the tire tool. Purchased these tires and install as I normally would. Find the rolling resistance and puncture resistance the same as the Grand Prix. Have about 500 miles on the tires with no issues. Also they come with a Red sidewall that matches my frame.
I have been riding Rubino Pro's for a few years now and I think they are one of the best tire values out there. With the new Graphene compound they last even longer. Very supple and good flat protection. Was happy when they started offering the tan sidewall version. Looks great on my all Black Focus Paralane. I actually like these better than the Corsa's due to the great wear and flat protection. Now if they would only offer a tubeless version with the tan sidewalls!
These tires have pros and cons. They roll incredible smooth and running low 85 PSI, they absorb a lot of harsh road feel. But I've punctured on them twice. One puncture self-sealed. The other puncture was due to a rock and ripped the side-wall. It did not self seal and I needed to plug it. This is all within a month of owning the tires.
