SMOOTH ALL THE WAY!!!

I bought these tires for my first flat bar rodie. I originally had some KENDA KRITERIUM 700 X 23 but those were a bit too narrow. As I am using this bike for commuting I didn't find it to safe for me yet. As I've heard 700 X 25 provide a better stability at least better control. Can't say much anything else but tires feel very smooth and no loss of control either. Thru the bumps and tears on the street the tire had pretty good rolling resistance. Will provide status after at least the first hundred miles or so.

Big bang for the bucks!

These tires are not the greatest, but they're far from the worst. At $13, to get anything made by Vittoria is a steal. Traction is great on dry pavement and decent on wet pavement. I feel confident riding these in any weather.

long lasting, fine ride - sale price

Punish me later, I don't rotate my tires so my front is still going, but I got just about 3000 miles in on my rear tire. I ride a mix of smooth and decaying asphalt roads with the ever-increasingly usual beer bottle remains in our bike paths. I do use a tire liner so although a few of those chips have cut the tires I have had no flats and no blow-outs. Even with one long slice no cross face tears. I bought at the sale price but even if I bought regular price it would be a durable value.

Great Value, but carry spare tubes.

Vittoria has always been a solid standby for me. All of their tires are a great value. I mostly roll on Specialized Armadillos and pump to max psi every time I ride. These tend to pick up more debris and get flat easier...still not as much as a Continental Ultra Sport.

Nice tire nice price

I have the Zaffiro in a 28mm for my commuter -an older Schwinn la Tour- they look quite nice matching the tube shape in profile. They ride very comfortably and though not fast they have a good smooth feel on the road and not terribly slow. Over all good contact rolling and cornering, the tread seems adequate and casing durable. I've only had them on for a month but feel confident that they will be a long lasting tire as I'm running Vittoria's Rubino 23mm on my racetrain bike and they are just showing wear at well over 2K miles. I have become a fan of Vittorias price value, ride quality, and longevity.

I've had good luck with these tires....

I've had two or three sets, 25s and 28s, and hardly a flat. Wore the tires out on the rims. Especially at the price, and obviously if you are not expecting that pricey tire ride, these are a great value.

VERY comfortable and tough

For the price I can't imagine you would find a better tire. I was running 23's before, some cheap chinese brand, which cost the same as these zaffiros. These just smooth out the bumps and I even skidded a few times with the tire and I do not see any marks whatsoever. Excellent set of tires for the money.

Performing Well, So Far.

I've put over 600 miles on paved trails (wooded with debris) so far and they're doing well. Probably not the best fit for my road bike, but they're more than adequate to endure my almost daily use. While the tire price was reasonable, the freight charge and delivery time (which was what I typically experience for free with Amazon) left me wondering if the overall value wasn't so hot.

Can't beat the price, durable grippy and roll fast if you want.

I've experienced one flat with these tires - on my first ride out with them. Ran over a construction staple which punctured the tire, and would have punctured any tire. A bit of gorilla tape inside, and they now have 1500 miles on them with no issues. The back is starting to show wear, the front is not. Will probably just switch them and keep rolling.

No problem keeping up on club rides with guys running the tires they say are much faster. Draft riding on the fast stretches over 30mph, hardly any effort. Great tire.

Good price but had several flats within the 3 months.

I moved the tire to the front wheel after several flats. The price was good and I feel I'll have fewer flats with it on the front. There is a degree of dificulty mounting it. You might want to spread a thin film of soap on the rim to get the last lip over the rim.

AWESOME Training Tire

I have used this tires for about a year for training only(well I did race with them once but that wasn't on purpose). I have had one one little problem and I am not sure what happened or how it happened but I think since they are cheap and they last a long time if one has some sort of little failure it does not matter much.

Durable training tire that provides comfortable ride

I am a recreationalfitness rider and use these tires for both leisurely rides and more intense fitness rides. Tires have nice, thick tread for durability, and, according to the inscription on the sidewall, take up to 140 psi (and 110 minimum!). Ride is comfortable.

Very good for the price

I ride a lot. Thousands of miles a year. These tires do not wear a long time, they are not particularly flat proof. But they are great for the cost. I've bought them for friends a long time out of work and though one of them is rather large at some 240 lbs he has gotten 2,000 miles on a set swapping back to front when it was getting a bit worn. And remember that the San Francisco area has a lot of steep hills and poorly maintained roads.

Just what I was looking for!

The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 are because I do not know how they will change over time. Specifically they where very hard to actually get both sides inside the rim prior to pumping up. 1 side was easy, then the last 10% of the other side required use of a tool. This might have been because their is actually a metal wile reinforcing the lips (clincher part that hooks onto the rim) as oppose to my last tire that was all rubber. I anticipate this metal to be a good thing in function because it should be stronger. I am curious if in the future replacing a tube will be easier once the tire is broken in. Anyway, great price and works well so far!

Great tire

These came with my Bianchi. The rear tire lasted for 1000 miles the front is still going after 2000. I cant complain about the longevity or toughness of the tires. I raced in 3 early season Roubaix races and did not puncture.

I am buying the 28's this time to do a few gravel grinders here in Co and the Kwansa 200. These tires are not folding tires so they are going to be tight fitting, so just knowing this makes the job for me easier. I just need to bring the right tools.

This is a fast tire.

On club rides, I'm usually one of the slower riders, but on the downhills, with my Zaffiro's pumped up to 110 psi, I coast faster than anyone.

Tough High Milage Bullet Proof Tire

I bought a pair of these tires about 6 months ago. I have put 2700 miles on them and I have had no flats. No Cuts. No failures all summer long. My rear tire still looks like it could go hundreds of miles more.

Let me say that I live in Southern California the land of drunks, broken beer bottles and goat head thorns.

I also weigh in at over 240 pounds so I am completely amazed at the toughness of these tires. They are a bit on the heavy side and they also are a bit tight to mount on Mavic open pro rim. But, I can still put the tires on without tools and I am no Hercules. I do need tools to remove them though.

The last few days I have been riding these tires in the rain and they may not be as grippy as some other tires in the wet but they did okay for me.

The black rubber sidewalls did show lots of cracking early on but these did not cause any problems with the tires. I ride size 28 width for pinch flat control.

Love them!

Comfortable low friction tire

I bought this tire for my brother's Canondale CAD100. He had on the original tires. He never rode the bike. After putting on these tires he absolutely loves the bike. It is fast without any sense of drag. Now he feels safe and rides all the time.

To be honest I don't know one brand from another. This was recommended by a bike this site and it worked out real well. This is also not a BS post.

great training tires

I rode with a guy today who just bought a $6000 bike and he probably will not want these Zaffiros. However, on my 27 year old steel Conalgo, they are just about perfect. I don't know where that 130 PSI in the specifications comes from. The sidewalls on my 700x23c tires state min -100 PSI and max -145 PSI. I ride them at 145 for low rolling resistance and maximum performance. Of course I can't DETECT any difference without scientific instruments, but I want the highest pressure I can get to help me avoid being dropped by the carbon folks. I bought four, and so far, one has been ruined by a road hazzard. But that can happen to any tire. Otherwise, I have experienced no pesky flats in about 600 miles of riding (much of it on road shoulders litered with gravel and glass) So I believe the protective belts are working. These tires are a little harder to mount (on my particular rims) than a folding tire, but that is to be expected, all that is needed is some strength and skill. How do they handle?? Fine, just fine - like any tire. (I only ride the bike, I don't make LOVE to it) Vittoria is a recognized brand with a good reputation, and the price of these Zaffiros is unbeatable. I recommend them.

Too good to be true? Nope, not this time. Excellent tires.

I use my bicycle for transportation and ride on road, paved trails, and crushed limestone trails, and my bicycle is decked out for touring with fenders, racks front and back, lights, the works. I always ride with one set of panniers on the front, sometimes a second set on the back. My riding style is brutal on tires. I've purchased expensive tires and suffered buyers remorse early on because they did not hold up as expected.

These tires are a steal at the sale price.

Good choice for daily trail riding.

These installed well and the first test at 50 miles suggest these are a great value. Unlike other inexpensive brand tires, I do not detect any twisting of the carcass or other defect. I ride bike trail and a little bit of city street. I would recommend these at this point if you are looking for a good, entry level tire.
