The high mileage classic that is the Vittoria Rubino Pro comes into its third generation with even better ride characteristics. For the Rubino Pro III, the casing has been upgraded from 120 TPI to an incredible 150 TPI for a supple ride, durability, and low rolling resistance. In addition, Kevlar® Endura 3D compound provides long tread life and better grip especially in wet weather. The tread design has also been changed to the Prism Vector Design for more reliability when cornering while retaining a smooth center for fast rolling.

This version of the Rubino Pro III is available in 700c (622 ISO) and various widths and colors. Folding bead. Claimed weight: 230g (700c x 23mm).

Puncture this

After a rough stretch with several flats including a double flat on one ride, I needed a serious rubber upgrade. I spent time looking for a tire with a good rating for puncture resistance.

I have run-up 250 plus miles on three primary surfaces - concrete, chip seal & asphalt. So far I have a new favorite. No flats, no pressure issues (running from 105 to 110 psi), with no flats. The rubber just feels solid through the cracks and rough sections of the surfaces. On the asphalt you can flat out roll. I have hit 45 mph on asphalt downhill around a good curve and they just hug the road.

At this point I can wash them up and they still look brand new. I like the black and red combo as it matches the bike color. The coloring is not quite uniform so if you watch the front tire it looks like the wheel is out-of-round, but when I put it on the trying stand it's good. The goal is 100 miles a week - trek on!

Best all-round tire for a fitness bike. Sorry that they are going away!

Used mainly on paved bike trails wsome neighborhood rides thrown in. Great Ridding-very smooth. Solid grip in 20 mph S-curves. Rolls Fast. Handles driving rain easily(Cent FL). Durable, Ft tire has 2,800 miles on it and still has plenty of tread. Rear about 1,600 and also has plenty of life left. Have picked up small pieces of glass and thorns-No Flats. Using 700x28. Front PSI 72-75, Rear PSI 88-90.WT-rider plus loaded bike200lbs. Much faster and better ridding then Gatorskins-very comparable to Grandprix 4000. Just picked up a spare set because they are going away. Superb all round tire. Bike set-up, Felt Verza Fit 2.

Sweet Spot Tire

Vittoria Rubino Pro III sits right at the sweet spot for high mileage non-competitive riders. They are an excellent balance of light weight, low rolling resistance, flat protection, long tread life, good traction, and low cost when bought on sale. Also, they are one of the few performancedurability tires available in 28mm, which IMO perfectly balances efficiency and comfort for long rides on sometimes rough country roads.

Unlike some other tires, the Rubinos can be mountedremoved without tools, at least on the Easton & Boyd wheels I use - a characteristic that is seriously appreciated during rare flat & tire replacement times. I get about 2000 miles per rear tire, and at least 4000 for each front. Maybe 6000. I replace when the first bit of belt peeks through.

It may help to know my profile. I ride a custom steel bike that was built to take up to 28mm tires because quiet country roads around here are rough. 3000 - 4000 miles per year. Ride several mountainous century events each year. Rolling roads with some major climbs. All weather conditions.

Nice Ride but flat prone

Love the comfy posh ride, grippy in corners, but flat prone. 4 flats in first 3 months. I was running at 120 psi. That's more flats than I had with other tires in two years.

Great tire--until the tread separates.

Have used the Rubino Pro II and III, and have been pleased with the overall feel and ride quality.185 lb rider, 150 miles a week, country roads and highways. Occasional flats only, as with other tires. But then at a certain point, patches of the tread simply separate from the underlying beltbody. This has occurred on 4 out of six tires, usually in under 1000miles. One was weak under the separating tread, and the tube blew through the body in a large bubble before exploding.Going back to Conti.

I couldn't be happier with the performance of these tires they are great on dry roads along with the most slippery wet roads of Southwest Florida. I am a Clydesdale at 6'4, 224 pounds these tires last me on the rear at least 1500 miles if not more. These are great tires with cool colors at a super retail.

A supple, durable tire for everyday use.

I'm using these in a 25c size and just cannot believe what an improved ride quality I'm experiencing relative to the Conti Grand Prix and Vredestein Fortezza Tricomp tires I used previously. I did mangle one of them by hitting a large, sharp rock while bombing down a hill at about 35 mph (never saw it coming - tore a 2 gash in the sidewall), but it was the sort of jolting impact that threw my chain off and I doubt that any tire would have held up well. I ordered a replacement, and the tires are since holding up well, with no obvious wear after about 1,000 total miles of riding, maybe 100 of which were on pretty nasty gravel roads.

Excellent training tire.

I bought a set of the black V. Rubino Pro IIIs in 25C for my Kona Road Bike to replace a set of exactly the same tires. The old set had approximately 1500 miles on them. I rode on the old set a bit longer then I should. I started getting goat head flats as the tires reached the point of being worn (thinning). Anyways the Pro IIIs are excellent training tires. They are easy to install and are fast for a training tire and grip well on the road. I ride on asphalt/road. My new set has close to 300 miles on them and no flats or problems to report. Just a solid and quality tire.

These are great training tires.

I have ridden the same Rubino Pros for 3 years without a flat. Many of my miles are in Colorado where the paved roads are often intersected by gravelcrushed rock roads. This results in unavoidably riding through sharp stones. The tires have numerous cuts but still no punctures.

Not the lightest but a great training tire.

Excellent tire, look no further

I have used Vittoria Rubino Pro II and III tires exclusively. They ride smooth and fast and in approximately 12000 miles of riding (of course, not on one set)I have had two flats. I combine these tires with Vredestein Butyl Race tubes and that combo has proven to be very durable. I manage to get excellent mileage out of them and again, very rarely flat. They grip and corner fine (caveat I don't ride in the rain often). As long as they keep making them this good, I see no need to use anything else. (Trek Madone 6 series with Rol Race wheels. Riding 6000 miles a year. Weight 185-195. Tire pressure 120 competing, 110 training rides). If I were to experiment with another tire (see no need to as of yet)it would be with the Vredestein Fortezza Tricomps or the Conti 4000s.

splits in side wall where red meets black in redblack colored tire and jumped the rim during inflation on two new tubes

I had two 23c tires, redblack, for two years. Not a lot of miles on tires, never stored flat (on purpose), half house, half garage kept. The side walls have begun cracking and the red colored material is separating from the under-material. I had a flat when I noticed this. The tire jumped the rim and the tube exploded two times at 120psi, when I tried to install two new tubes. The holes were in the same place on both tubes, showing that the bead failure occurred at the same place both times, thus a defect in the tire bead, side wall, something.

Easily measures up to the quality expected from VIttoria.

I'd been riding a competitor tire for a couple of years after having been a loyal Vittoria rider. These tires made me wonder why I had changed. Great ride, super grip even on wet roads. And at the price a great value for the money.

Great upgrade to my ride

Replaced a variety of other tires I'd tried first, including Grand Prix 4-seasons, Gatorskins, and Diamante pros. This tire wears very well on the roads I'm commuting on, which are pretty rough on tires. It compares well to Gatorskins for length of use (approx. 1000 miles on the rear is a reasonable expectation, more than that is just window dressing), and is far superior to the Grand Prix 4-seasons and Diamantes. It rides much, much better than either Conti, compares very well to the Diamente at a lower price, longer wear, and in a 28mm.

Good grip, good feel, good speed. And all that for a lower price? This is a lot of tire for a pretty good price.

Reliable ... Rolls well and excellent while cornering at high speeds

It is the go to tire for competitive fast group rides and training rides. I would use these tires in a race, but I longer compete as racer. It is an excellent tire on wet weather and keeps flats to a minimum (2 flats (finishing nails) in THE LAST THREE YEARS). Present set of tires are doing well as the last sets. Front tire has not been replaced (2500 miles with plenty of tread left), rear tire was replaced at 2300 miles, it was showing very little rubber on the center line. For comparison, I am 6-1 - 178 lbs and average 350 miles per week. So, yes I highly recommend this tires. IF you are not a Pro Riders,' but you are into counting grams, these tires are averaging between 218 to 231 grams). If that is WAY TO HEAVY for you, get something else and pay more (BTD sells them). My theory on counting grams, do push-ups (as in push your food plate away (eat less), It will make you a faster rider.

Vittoria ride, training tire price

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.

Fantastic tire, Great Price!

I use these tires on my Cannondale synapse. I commonly come across roads that are rough due to the harsh winter we had but these tires handle great and much better than the factory tires that came with the bike. I was constantly getting flats with the factory tires. Haven't had a flat yet. Its also nice that they come in green to match the bike,

There is no comparison if you are looking for a durable training tire at a reasonable price

If you are looking for a training tire that doesn't sacrifice on rolling resistance, is very good in wet conditions, and has extraordinary protection against penetration flats, this tire is it. There are other tires that come close, but cannot compete on price. If this is not enough, the Vittoria Rubino Pro III can be inflated to up to 150 psi. I usually back off on that, riding at a the more comfortable inflation of around 135 psi (susceptible to pinch flats pushing to over 140 psi). Finally, this tire lasts a very long time. I usually get around 3000 miles before the tires need to be replaced. All in all, you have the best of everything, a long lasting, fast, comfortable ride with peace of mind protection.

Love these new tires and glad I switched from the Gator Skins...much softer tire.

I ride between 5-6 hundred miles per month. So far there is nothing to dislike. Softer ride and better grip and I was able to purchase 4 of these at the price of two Gatorskins.

Great trainer

These came stock with my new ride. It took me a while to wear them out. I train on all types of road and they have been great on everything. I do have to be cautious with turning on wet surface but I hope they have fixed that with the newest rev.

I did not get a flat till about 2000 miles into them. They lasted almost exactly 3k.

They are great workhorses and I highly recommend them to make your steed trusty.

Great durable tire for day to day riding.

My favorite tires are Vittoria Corsa Evo. The 320 tip casing makes for great handling and a smooth ride. I ride about 5000 miles a year and weigh about 180. I can go through the Evo's pretty quickly and they aren't cheap. The Rubino Pro Are my compromise for winter spring riding when there is more junk on the road and I want a tire that is a little beefier (I ride on 25's during the rainy season). I think the tires are a fair value.
