Description

How do you roll?

The Vittoria Rubino Pro III continues the success of the versatile Rubino series. Billed as a reliable, high-mileage solution to extended training, gran fondos, or even coast-to-coast, ultra-endurance rides. The Rubino Pro features a technical tread pattern for stability across a wide variety of road conditions (including those surprise gravel detours that Google Maps failed to point out.) Vittoria’s nylon anti-puncture belt adds peace of mind. More importantly, the ride quality afforded by the 150 TPI nylon casing will smooth out decaying tarmac and the occasional rumble strip. Choose from 700C x 23mm or 25mm widths.

  • Mithril cut-resistant polymer weave minimizes chances of damage to sidewalls
  • Updated tread pattern increases contact surface area for better grip
  • 150 TPI for long-lasting tread life
  • Recommended pressure from 100-145 psi

Love 'em!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I rode Conti Gatorskins for years as my go-to trainer. I'm 1,000 miles into my first set of Rubino III's and I won't go back to Gators. They roll better, smoother ride, better handling. I rotated after 500 & again at 1,000 and I really can't see much wear. I've ridden smooth roads, roads hammered by construction, CO mountain roads, cobbled asphalt, and so far (knock wood) zero flats!

Good all-around trainer tires!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I put this tire slightly above Continental Gatorskin for Training rides. They are quick, fairly supple, wear very well and handle nicely, and have good puncture resistance. Also if needed, like the Gatorskin, for Max Toughness they come in the Tech Edition which has sidewall reinforcement just like the Gatorskin.

The name says Black Fold, but the tech...

The name says Black Fold, but the tech specs say wire bead, not foldable. Which is it?
Thanks

I think that's an error. I've ridden the 2s and 3s and both were folding and came in a box identical in size to open corsa evos. There is a rubino (non pro) that is a wire bead but it's only 60 tpi and costs less $. CC needs to correct the spec.

Grippy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These tires stick to the road, and handle the toughest roads i ride on. I have not had a flat yet, and are leaps and bounds better than the stock tires my bike came with. I am still wondering when i will get a flat!

Good High-Mileage Tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used three sets of these tires and both times got almost 3,500 miles from the set (rotating them once). My last set was covered in nicks when I retired them. They are very easy to mount and have slightly above average road feel and performance considering their design. I prefer Rubino 3s in 25mm to Gatorskins.

Oh yeah, as of the date of my comment, the tech specs are totally messed up. Just sayin'. Says they are wire bead and weight 144 grams!!! Here's my specs: my last set averaged about 230-235 grams and were accurate in terms of width.

One of the best training tires

Vittoria has been manufacturing pro-level bicycle tires for 60 years. It shows. Their range and R&D is pretty amazing.

The Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 is by far my favorite overall riding and training tire. Excellent grip, handling, good wear (much better than dedicated racing tires), good puncture protection (ditto), and wonderful road "feel." The latter sets these Rubino Pro's apart.

True, the Rubino Pro 3 is not a racing tire. That is what the awesome (but much faster wearing) Vittoria "Corsa" line of racing tires are for.

I typically use race tires in 23 mm size for racing or timed runs on clean, dry, smooth roads. Otherwise, I use Rubino Pro 3's in the 25mm size (235g) for training and general riding. And, honestly, I use Rubino Pro 3's in the 28mm size (245g) for training in the Winter months on the wet and rough (chip & seal) roads in my area. 28mm tires provide much better traction, braking, and handling in these conditions; yet are still light and very fast. Rubino Pros are great tires!

Long Service Life, OK Handling

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you're on a tight budget but still want some decent handling, the Rubinos are a solid choice. They corner well, though not as well as the Diamantes and Corsas, but they three times as long as Corsas and half again as long as Diamantes. The tread pattern deals with wet conditions reasonably well, too. If you want a training tire and don't care about handling, the Rubino is a solid option. If you want something you can corner on a bit better, but still lasts and won't break the bank, check out the Diamantes.

so far so good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i've used the a handful of times and so far i love these tires! they grip the roads really well. i run them about 100 psi and i have not had a flat yet.. i am a fan of these tires, work and feel great!

This cut and no flat!

This cut and no flat!

Got this cut in my old Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 Clinchers about 500 miles ago, still no flat! Have over 2000 miles and they are good for another 1000 I would guess. Bought a new set because I was worried about this cut, but I'm not going to replace them yet.

Responded on

So true. I had a very similar dimple-type cut in my Rubino Pro 3 rear tire and still got 3,000 miles out of it, at least half of that after the damage. Reassuring.

sturdy

i like that they have several colors to choose from so that you can deck out your bike, i've gotten many compliments.

aside from their appearance, these are also thick and feel very durable. they have great traction so that i feel safer cornering, not having to worry about them skidding out. i haven't gotten a flat with these since the 3 months i've had them.

Great tires

Bought some of these for my wife to replace her old cheapies. We were looking for a pair of durable tires that didn't create a lot of resistance and these have worked out exceptionally. She loves the way they ride and they grip the road well without adding a lot of extra weight to the bike. I would recommend these to the casual biker and work commuter.

Italian for victory

Robust training tires with a ride quality that approaches a lot of racing tires. I have been running these since December on winter roads with no problems or flats (flats happen sometimes but seem to be less of an issue on fresh, high-quality rubber) I'll be purchasing these again.

Rock Solid!

I purchased these for my commuter that typically gets ridden through all sorts of terrible roads with tons of debris and these are AMAZING! After pumping them up to 115 PSI they are so solid that rocks and other debris just bounces off the tire and the Kevlar definitely makes this one of the most rugged smooth road tires! If you are looking for something that will grip, inflate to a higher PSI for less rolling resistance, and need something rugged that will hold up over time look no further. This tire is something I plan on running on all my bikes from now on!

Does this tire come in a 700x25? I only see 23 & 28.
If a 700x25 fits ok on my Mavic Road rims will the 28 be ok or is that too close to call witrhout mounting one first?
Thanks

It does come in a 700x25 but RC does not sell it. Check out Amazon and they should have one.

Great trainer

I got a set of these recently and threw them on for some training. I was skeptical because I normally ride a very tough tire like a gatorskin or armadillo. I rode 10 hours in Seattle in 3 days on dirty, wet back roads. So much junk was sticking to the tires from the rain, but I didn't get any flats. These feel a lot better cornering than the hard rubber wire beads I am used to, and are lighter. My new favorite trainer!

Great Tires

I bought a new set of wheels and decided not to go with the Rubinos again, and try the Mich Krylions. Bad mistake, third ride out with the new wheels and tires I flatted with a huge cut in the rear Krylion. Looked at it as bad luck and not paying enough attention on my part. However 2 weeks later the rear had a slow leak, that was enough. Not to mention the main reason I switched back to the Rubinos was the Kryloins felt sluggish and not nearly as fast. I had a full year with the Rubinos before and never flatted once. Glad to have the Rubinos back!

Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 Tire - Clincher

Awesome training tire that will last ages, and very good puncture resistance. They are not as fast for racing (best to go with the Vittoria Open Corsa range there), but as good tire as you can get for training. They would get 5 stars if they were a bit faster and grippier, but for a training tire, they're perfect.
Fantastic range of colour options too.

In reference to the detail picture of the...

In reference to the detail picture of the tire tread, which way should the tire be mounted for the tread to be in the proper rolling direction? Most tires I have had show an installation arrow on the sidewall, but my set of these do not.

Thanks.

Responded on

A good rule of thumb for tires is have the arrow of the tread pointing forward. So when you mount it have the tread point forward on the bike.
