Vittoria Zaffiro tyre experiences required.

by trikeman   July 21, 2012  

Hi All,
Picked up my Son a bike which has new Zaffiro tyres fitted - never used these before - any good as far as P*******e resistance goes? Any experience would be appreciated. Was going to stick the favourite gatorskins on but if these are any good then saves shelling out even more.

I use them as my winter tyre - they are slightly smaller than my summer GP4000s so fit under raceblades on my Giant TCR. Last winter = no puctures.

I've used them loads and they're one of my fave all-round tyres. good balance of puncture resistance and fast rolling. not the stickiest on wet roads though

Thanks All,
Good reviews. He took it out today and put a good few miles on and no 'pops' Smile I just come back from a 'round the block' ride on it and they seem fine, roll nice and seem quite grippy - will check out in the wet Dave, thanks for the heads up on that bit.

Again, thanks for the reviews.

Grunt, puff, pant and groan goes the old man - but he gets there in the end. ;o)
