Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Tech Tire - Clincher $34.95
Vittoria knows the importance of being able to rely on your winter training tires, day in and day out, without worrying about them being able to hold up to the rigors of the road. For that reason, its engineers designed the new Pro Tech Tire using a blend of proven tread and sidewall compounds, which gives you hard-wearing tires that were built for the long haul.
The Zaffiro Pro Tech is a reliable tire constructed out of Vittoria's Aramid Endura wet-grip compound. It's built to roll fast, far, and without incident. The nylon Puncture Resistant Belt (PRB) found in Vittoria’s higher-tier rubber, like the Open Corsa and the Rubino, is also used here. The Zaffiro Pro accomplishes all of this without adding an exceptional amount of rotating weight. In addition to the grippy tread compound, Vittoria added its denseweave sidewall protection. If you're familiar with the Rubino line of tires, you'll know this composition as the ultimate in sidewall reinforcement, constructed from a dense but flexible polymer weave.
The Zaffiro Pro Tech incorporates Vittoria's Aqua-Flow tread, with deeper grooves in the middle and shallower shoulders, meaning you get excellent cornering in both wet and dry conditions. And since it's a 60 TPI tire, the overall price is reasonably low for the high quality you receive.
The Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Tech Tire - Clincher is available in Black tread with Black sidewalls only, and in a 23mm width.
