I use these on a dedicated roadracing bike, and they've now been through a few hundred miles, including two triathlons, with a 20 mile component and 56 mile cycling leg. They've held up extremely, zero flats, no noticeable wear. They feel a bit faster, relative to my entry-level training tires, but the biggest difference is that they feel much more secure on tight turns. This has led to a big improvement in my cycling, as handling was one of my weaker aspects. Highly recommend these tires, particularly for the price.
I bought these tires because I know Vittoria makes a nice riding tire from past expierence although they do tend to wear fast. Previously I've used the Pave tire. I'll have to say Bike Tires Direct staff were extremly helpful when I called for addition info on these tires, as they always are. They are my go to place for tires.
Anyway, I put these tires on and imediatly I could feel a difference from Mavic tires that I had been using. I'm also a fan of Vredestein but these Vittoria's had a super smoothsupple ride feel that was quite noticable. I love them. That said I have gotten a couple slow leaking flats in the rear so there is a trade off I believe in puncture resistence. However, if ride feel and cornering grip appleal to you this is a fantastic tire of which I will be buying again.
Have used for commuting an training noe on second set. Using latex tubes and ride is fast and excellent. Puncture resistance is fair. I have almost all my flats with wire from truck steel belted debris. Riding a lot in wet and cold and doing well. Using high pressure because of pot holes with winter and rain in north Texas.
Ive spent this season on these- 5000 on this bike . Great traction and handling, one flat after the tread was down to paper thin- and it was slow enough to pump up and ride home! The 5th (!!!) time l dug a glass sliver out of the tires- one that never got through to puncture, l was sold! Hard to mount, but arent they all?
Love love love these tires! Super gummy, grippy and smooth. Ive used the 25 and 28. The compromise is that they do tend to wear a bit quicker than other tires, particularly in the rear. I used my 25mm rear for about 800 miles before I was getting a bunch of flats due to the tire getting thin and cut up. Front lasted about 1500 miles. 28mm fit nicely in my Fuji SL, SRAM Aerolite brake combo, and ride like a dream.
Typical rear tire mileage for me is 700, this tire lasted 1300. The front was 2000 and I changed it to match new rear. I tried the Rubino Pro G and rear lasted 700. Both tires have less cuts in them. Next time I'll try the harder version for the rear tire.
During my 25 years of road bike riding I have tried many different brands of tires. Some tires wear longer or are somewhat more puncture resistant than others but frankly they all pretty much felt the same to me while riding until I tried Vottoria Corsa G Clinchers. These tires feel smoother and more connected to the road than any other tires I've used. They wear a little faster than some but okay. I get about 1500 miles rear and twice that for the front tire. Puncture resistance seems as good as most tires. My only gripe is that they have to be the most difficult tires I have ever had to mount on the wheel but once they are on they are great.
The ride with these tires is excellent.
Grip in cornersweather can't be beat.
Love everything about the tires.
Except how they wear or last.
I can't get very miles out of these tires before they are showing extensive wear. Verses the price of the tire, I view that as a disappointment.
Out of the gate I took these tires through a metric century. Performed so well with a plush smooth ride and continue to do so. Love the look and the ride. They bite in the corners too which is very nice.
I ride these for fast casual riding, 10 - 25 miles at a time on my own. They are extremely tough to get on the rims. That is the bad, however, by putting them in a warm clothes dryer for 10 minutes, it becomes a lot easier. I like that they hold a high pressure, produce a very smooth ride and seem to grip the road nicely. I used Conti's before and liked them, but these have become my go to tire.
After riding this excellent tire, it is no wonder why so many pro tour teams on them. I feel the ride on my carbon clinchers with these Vittoria Corsa G (with tubes) exceed that of my Conti Competition tubulars.
The Vittoria Corsa G clincher is an excellent tire which provides exceptional handling and a supple ride. I have a couple of bikes that are very stiff and these tires have improved the ride dramatically. I purchased the 25c size and inflate them to 87 psi front90 psi rear. I haven't had any flats (pinch or otherwise) in the several hundred miles that I have used them. They were slightly more difficult to mount than some other brands that I've used but nothing that would present a problem.
Ridden this tire for about 8 months and although the smoothness of ride is second to none, the flats are a little over the top! And initially this tire is definitely not the easiest to change out!
