2.0 out of 5 stars tech specs ?!, 24 April 2012

This review is from: Vittoria Rubino 700x23 Tyres (Sports)
I was planning to buy this tyre but am confused by the description here
iknow for sure that the UPGRADED version of these has better casing - casing has been upgraded from 120 tpi to an incredible 150 tpi for a supple ride, durability, and low rolling resistance. Kevlar compound- better grip in wet weather. The tread design has also been changed to the Prism Vector Design for more reliability when cornering while retaining a smooth center for fast rolling.

could someone confirm; this is clearly being sold as something else... the tyre i want can been found on chain reaction cycles website under Vittoria Rubino Pro Tyre.

Correct, this is the 'non-pro' version and is being sold as such. It sports the same tread as the 'pro' version, but is not foldable and has a lower TPI value. Check out the Vittoria website, you'll find all the details there. Oh, and by the way - your review gives only two stars, which is damaging the overall score for this excellent tire, which is correctly advertised on Amazon.

i strongly recommend you not to buy bike equipment through this website; the less resellers between you and the manufacturer the better. check the tire selector on vittoria.com website. very often the manufacturers will me make the choice easier for you - then it is up to you how much you want to spend. it is always recommendable to check basic quality indicators; one of them is TPI - threads per square inch will talk a lot about durability of the tyre; 60 TPI in a cheap tyre worth 8-11 pounds, perhaps ok, depending what you expect from it; or excellent 150 TPI for a really good one for not even twenty quid? that's pretty much the basic differences between rubino and rubino pro. when you hold it in your hand, you will already see and feel the difference. don't be fooled by uninformed guesses in five star reviews. facts from the manufacturers charts talk loud. How often you read about 'experiences cyclists' riding these 'wonderful tyres' for 'more than a year and never had a puncture... ok.. what's the annual mileage, what roads, what style of riding, races? , wet surface, bike used ? up to you what you want to believe
