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.
This tire is amazing, most confident inspiring, super fast on everything, hooks up in the corners, and yet brakes like it was made specifically for each one of those characteristics. Absolutely amazing! The center tread is a bunch of hexagons but they are at a slight angle, sorta like fish scales, fast rolling but the edges dig in and hook up when braking and cornering.
The Vittoria Latex tube is a performance inner tube, best paired with supple performance clincher. I like the fact that there is no seam. You will need to add air before each ride, but that is a small inconvenience compared to the improved feel and performance achieved with this latex tube.
