100 mile per week road rider on nasty streets with lots of tire eating debris. I don't give a lot of 5 star ratings but the Vittoria Street Runner for those who ride a 'mountain bike' on the road earns the stars. The VSR is very well built, easy to mount and rides like a dream. They are long lasting and very puncture resistant (the only flat I've had in the 6 I've bought came on one that was well past its end of useful life). I see a lot of MTB's on the road with fat knobby tires and wonder if they ever leave the blacktop. Most don't look like they ever get into the dirt and all that excess rubber, rolling resistance and poor traction on the road is why I ride the VSR's. That and having tried all the 'bargain' house brands that end up costing more in time (fixing flats) and money.
i used this tire on a mountain bike that is only used on paved greenways. Now this bike rides and feels more like my hybrid. My daughter could not stop talking about how much of a difference she felt.
To be fair, I'm quite hard on tires. I am a daily commuter who rides 30 miles per day, reach max speeds of 38.8MPH, and I ride aggressively. I only recieved 1 flat tire from a piece of scrap metal in the road(razor sharp). I've had the tires for over 30 days and they are holding up great. Advice dodge sharp debris -)
