You want to go fast—need to go fast. So does the Rubino Pro Speed G+ from Vittoria. Combining three rubber compounds to optimize suppleness, protection, and speed, this svelte tire delivers race-ready performance that will stand up to daily thrashing and long training sessions. Vittoria’s G+ Isotech compound blows away the old paradigm in which you traded grip for rolling resistance, and low weight for durability. Rolling straight down the road, G+ tires are at their hardest, reducing rolling resistance and increasing durability and puncture protection. When you get on the brakes or dive into a corner, the rubber actually softens, seriously increasing traction and road-sense. Go ahead and push them to your limits. Vittoria has you covered.
The tread on these tires doesn't last. I have gone through two tires that were on the rear of my bike already. In each case, I got less than 750 miles out of the tire. The tires lose large chunks of rubber down to the casing when they wear out. I also have had two flat tires with these, one on the front tire and one on the rear tire.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
