General information about our shipping
I've used these tires for years. Good all round tire, fast , sporty and fairly durable. Easier to mount than others on Campagnolo wheels. Super value.
I have always found this tyre to be just right for casual riding on good to average roads. They roll fast, are pretty resistant to punctures (have only had one one these in 2 years of regular riding) and the odd spot of bad road. At this price they are hard to ignore.
Vittoria is always my tyre of choice and the Rubino Pro Slick is fantastic! Very grippy, and being a Rubino it seems to be very puncture resistant while staying very light. As always a superb tyre from a superb maker. These were bought as a pair from Merlin at an excellent price and were delivered very quickly, great product and even greater price and service :-)
I have been using Vittoria Rubino pro slick tires for the past 2 years. They hold up well for training or racing. Nice rolling resistance and durable. Would recommend to anyone that wants a good quality tire (good product for the price).
Good fit on the rims - not too easy not too loose giving confidence that they will stay on when I go round the bend!
I've ridden these for the past several weeks and so far have been very impressed with their low rolling resistance. It's my first set of slick tires and I'm convinced that slicks are the best option for a road bike tire (under most conditions, especially racing). Leave the nobby tires on the mtn bike! I have gotten 2 rear flats so far. However, the first was a pinch flat after I hit an unavoidable and big pothole on a group ride. The second didn't necessarily seem to be due to the tire, but I'll keep an eye on them for awhile for puncture resistance. All in all, I recommend these tires!
Best value for money bar none. Not the tackiest race tire out there, but definitely a great balance of wear and handling. I use these almost exclusively for both racing and training.
Have been out on two 60/70 rides with these new tyres they roll quite well at 130psi, they are not black/black but a very dark gray thats neither here or there, a few grams more than my summer race tyres but around have or less in price, what I have noticed they spin up a little out of the seat on steep wet sections of the road and am a little more cautious when taking bends on the way down, this is most likely due to the rubber being more wear resistant...overall very happy with them...great service and price from Merlin very fast despatch.. Just be careful on wet roads after dry periods. Cheap, fast road tire
