Description

Rubino Pro 3 Tire

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

  • 150TPI nylon casing
  • Technical tread pattern
  • Nylon anti-puncture belt
  • Available in 700x23mm and 700x25mm

    I have about 400 miles on these, and so far, they've been very good. I ride the 25mm tires. Smooth rolling and stable cornering. They show no signs of early wear, so hoping to get 3K miles or so out of them.

    Great tire, great price

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    These are comfy, smooth-rolling tires that hold well in corners. They are a touch smaller than stated (closer to a 23 than a 25) when set up (easily by hand) on my & the Mrs. wheels. Have had issues with Vittorias cracking a lot on the sidewalls in the past, but no issues in the first 200 hot miles. Would be good tires at $30, so at the sale price they are a screaming deal.

    Great tires and a great price.

    Fit:
    True to size

    At this price it is almost stupid not to try these tires! They mounted by hand only (a struggle but I did it by hand). To get them off however I made need a tire iron to get things started. I don't have a lot of miles on them yet so I cannot attest to durability of resistance to flats. I moved up from 23c to 25c in the Rubinos but the Rubinos seem faster - they just really roll. They are supple and soak up some road vibration (not as good as conti, but close). They are grippy in corners and on fast descents - I trust them much more than the previous 23c tires. I was treat my bike to conti's, but thought these might be close to the same performance at 1/2 or 1/3 the cost. Get yourself a pair!

    Really good tire for a great price.

    I bought the 28 mm version of this tire and am very pleasantly surprised by how good they are for the price. They grip well and are very comfortable, as they can be inflated between 70-100 psi making the ride nice and cushiony. After a few rides and almost 200 miles, they show almost no wear, which is to be expected. I bought another 4 tires as spares. I highly recommend these tires as everyday trainers that are comfortable and plenty fast.

    I've been a Vittoria fan for years. And Rubino Pros are like a best friend: always ready, a pleasure to ride, and last forever. So far, my new ones are more of the same. Why change?

    Couldn't get tire on

    Familiarity:
    I returned this product before using it

    Had to cut it off the wheel. Waste of money, makes sense why they are 70% off, must have changed manufacturing over the years, can't believe this is the same tire that was getting 5-star ratings.

    Excellent All-Rounder or Training Tire

    I traded up from a set of Vittoria Zafirro Slicks (700 x 25) to these in 700 x 28. Visually there does not appear to be any difference in size but I have not actually measured. The ride quality is very good and the grip is night and day better than the Zaffiros. The price was very good and it didn't take me long to see the benefits in the reduction of rotating weight and the improved grip. Would have given it 5 stars but I have not noticed a comfort improvement as one would expect from switching to a higher volume and more supple tire. I am not trying to say that these tires are not comfortable, they are. Just not as comfortable as I would have expected.

    Longevity

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I'm pleasantly surprised with how long these tires hold up. I've taken the same pair from late fall, through some sporadic winter riding (even on the trainer), and into mid spring. No flats. (Yet.) They feel a bit more supple than Gatorskins, and they won't throw off your bike's color scheme. I happen to like Conti orange, but it's not for everyone--the Rubino Pro 3 lets you run jet black if that's your bag.

    Good training tires

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I have put thousands of miles on these bad boys this past Fall and Winter and I am pretty impressed. Tire wear is very good, I'm able to get 2500 miles off a set (I do rotate them at ~1000 miles). They are also pretty puncture resistant, no cuts on cinders so far (just three pinch flats). Rolling resistance is okay, better than my heavy duty Continental 4seasons but they definitely don't feel as supple or fast as my Schwalbe Ones. They offer a pretty good middle zone between durability, puncture resistance, rolling resistance, and price that make them great training tires. The one disappointing thing about these tires is that they do not grip very well in the wet... Compared to aforementioned Contis or Schwalbes I feel more slippage and less confidence once the roads get wet. I would not recommend these tires for all out descending. Despite this weakness these are still good training tires if you can get them at a good price. Just be careful in the turns!

    Great all around tires

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    Very happy with these tires. I moved from 23 to 25 so i am not sure how much of the smoothness I am experiencing I would contribute to the larger size, new tires or the model/brand. These tires are one of the best values in the market considering their excellent performance. I will have to see about its puncture resistance but so far so good.

    They ride well and last a long time. I've had many sets and after trying several others, I always come back. Great price point and seem to steer clear of punctures.

    Sticking with these for Winter

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I make a point of trying out as many tyres as possible, but for getting back to the basics of a simple tire that holds up over the long haul, these are the top choice right now. Perfect tire for winter for the durability, puncture protection, and the price. Have been rocking 25mm, but I'll be giving 28mm's a shot for the nastier weather that's about to hit Utah.

    The reviews were right

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I was looking for a tire to replace the vredestein fortezzas , since they no longer came in yellow. These Vitoria Rubino Pro 3s are better. Grip, responsiveness, and the feeling of lighter weight ( although actually slightly heavier) give the bike a sharper, more controlled feel. And the yellow is spot on!

    Stock tires on my CAAD10 were aweful replaced them with these after my first ride. Bought these because of the good reviews as an all around tire and they have lived up to the hype. Rolls smooth handles well and looks great comparable to gp4000s' but cost less and in my experience more durable

    I've had Vittoria Rubino tires for three seasons, driven on Utah bike paths and traffic-congested, potholed roads in Boston. Husband and I both have rubino tires on our bikes and have had no slipping and zero flat tires in three years! They look awesome and are very dependable. Great road tire, definitely worth investing in.

    They see me rollin'

    These are my workhorse tires. They were OEM on my bike, and I have had no reason to switch them out. The roll good, have good grip in the corner, and the green matches the green accents on my bike. Buy them on sale and hang on to them for when you need to change them out.

    My training tire of choice

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    When you get sick of sidewall cuts on your revered GP4000s then make the change over to this fantastic tire. I made the switch in 2013 and have yet to retire one due to cuts, only wear. Mind you, this isn't my race day tire but I have raced on it on rainy days and some races with questionable roads and/or gravel and I don't feel like I gave up any advantage. Plenty supple for training and long rides and even hooked up enough for racing.

    Great looking, smooth roller

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    Two things, OK three, led me to this tire. First, I'm a big fan of Gatorskins but just felt that I could get a better roll out of a different tire. So, my first requirement was a durable tire with better rolling characteristics. Check #1. Second, my Pinarello Razha has orange accents and after replacing the bar tape with Cinelli Orange bar tape (yep, got that here too!) I focused on the tires. This tire was available with Orange stripes. Check #2. Third, well sort of, I was hoping these might drop in price a little (though regular price wasn't bad). Every day during the TdF I'd watch for the daily specials here. Bingo!!! They went on sale and I snagged them! I had no issues putting them on my bike and they roll great. Though they can take 140 PSI I have only been able to get my floor pump up to 120 PSI. Time for a new pump?! Nonetheless, very happy with these tires and am now "Oranged Out!"
