Not as durable and I hoped.

I use to run on the Diamante Pro Lights but they too wore out too fast. I went to the Diamante Pro because of its claims of durability (within its class).

Like the first reviewer said, I didn't expect these lightweight tires to be tough as nails but I also didn't expect to see the tire form a bulge after 2 rides (about 60 miles total). I liked the feel of these tires and it they were more durable, I'd be a loyal fan.

I think I'll need to look elsewhere.

Responded on

I bought 4 tires - for my wife's bike and mine, before a 400 mile club tour. After we got home and put on a few more miles, 2 of the tires developed bulges. These are obvious defects. So, 50% of the tires are bad. I don't think I'll buy Vittoria Diamante Pros any more.
