I wedged these onto my daily ride last night (they replaced a set of worn Vredestein Gran Fondo TriComps that I rode through this bad winter). They seemed a bit heavy and I'm not a fan of tread patterns on bicycle tires. So I pumped them up to 130 PSI and rolled out this morning, ready to be disappointed by yet another set of training tires.
One of the most pleasant experience trying a new product, starting out with low expectations, and yet being surprised when expectations are exceeded. In the case of the Rubino Pro III - I was very surprised. They rolled well, gripped fine, and provided a nice ride on my somewhat harsh-riding Cannondale CAAD10-3.
I've ridden mostly Continentals and Vredesteins for years, but Vittoria continues to impress. While I love the Open Corsa series, wear is poor (maybe 1000 miles before it's replacement time). I'll leave those tires on nicer wheels and enjoy the Rubino Pro III for everyday riding.
Thank you for your feedback.
