    Ride like treacle, pretty wide for their nominal size, and IME quite puncture resistant.

    I've got Rubino pro's on my winter/commuter bike and have had them on for about a year now.
    Fantastic tyres for puncture resistance and I find they ride just as fast as my Pro race 3's.
    I would dissagree with the width as most tyres foul my mudguards but the Rubino's just clear more than all others I've tried.

    Excellent tyres.

    The Rubino Pro is the folding version and is about 100g per tyre lighter than the simple Rubino non-folding version, but has same compound.
    I've run both on Winter bikes and very impressed.

    Gotta be the best value for money tyre there is - under a tenner if you shop around - I have them on my commutter and best bike - come in a range of colours as well

    My 25mm tyres measure more like 26.5mm

    Didn't have good experiences with either the Rubino Pro Tech folding tyre or the Diamante Pro Rain tyre purchased last year. Both started puncturing repeatedly after a month or so and soon ended up in the bin. Could just be bad luck of course but the Vredestein Tricomps on my other bike outlived both sets of the Vittoria's and are still going strong after doing considerably more miles so I'll be sticking with those in future.

    Rubino Pro folding - good puncture resistance - light enough for a training tyre - rolls well, grips well - good price - excellent value - prices have gone up recently though.

    I've got the ordinary Rubino's on my Best bike in 23. So far they seem quite good and haven't had a cut yet. That said, I'm taking them off and replacing them with something lighter. I think the Rubino's will do fine to replace my battered old 25s on my hack/winter bike.

    Good tough training tyre but I've found the slick version isn't very grippy at times in the wet.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.
