Responsive, lightweight tire with very good feel. Got the 28c size for a more plush ride-still very lightweight. Smooth center bead with some tread on the shoulder will make it good for some light gravel riding, too.
So far I have only been for one wet weather ride on which the tyres performed very well..
This is simply the world's best training tire. I bought 2 pairs in 2013, from Merlin Cycles, and I keep using the last pair. I train an average of 200km a week in the very bad Brazilian's roads. I believe that ride more than 10,000km with each tire, practically no punctures and without any deformation.
Nice tire for price, easy to fit, rolls well. Wet performance is not bad for daily commuting.
Agreed with the others riders...the fit is on the skinny side so 28c is more like a 26c. My 28c fits ok on a 55mm brake caliper alright. Can't tell about reliability since I only rode it a few times in the wet, no problem so far though.
Currently riding on these tires. The set I bought is for future replacements. Have almost 1000 miles on current set and they are still going strong. Used to ride continental but now sold on Vittoria.
Seem reasonably grippy and light with acceptably low rolling resistance. Product feels like it will be much more puncture resistant than the tyres l'm taking off (Aksions), though l've not had them long enough. Great value tyres anyway. Suspect l will like my Vittorias.

This is my third set of rubino pros. They seem to have better puncture resistance than my old Conti GP4000s but they also have higher rolling resistance.
Great value training tyre.
These are my second set of Rubino Pro Techs. 5500 km on the rear of the last set. Not a single flat.
I've gone down the route of cheap tyres to have finally got into my thick skull that it's a false economy. So it's these for the commute and Conti GP4000s for the race/sportive season.
"For too many years ! I have heard people say Gator tyres are the best winter/training tyre ! ...I think it's because these people have never tried these !!!! Vittoria are far superior to Contis' ...grip ! ...protection ! ...longevity ! ...comfort ! ...COST !!!
NB ! Like most Vittorias these also cut quite easy ! But !!!! So far I've pulled: flints, thorns, shards of glass and most debris from the cuts and all but huge tyre killers have failed to penetrate the entire carcass so avoiding the dreaded "P" !!!
Only point needed making is these pro tech tyres come up slightly narrower than there normal or any other Vittoria equivalent size ...so if you want a 23 size up to 25 !"
