Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick Folding Tyre - Similar tread pattern to Vittoria's top racing tyres for a faster training tyre. - Fewer flats, secure grip and long tread life. - Weight: 245-250grams
Having tried specialized S Works tyres on my track bike and experienced an absolute nightmare of trying to get them to find grip on the boards at Manchester Velodrome I was advised to go for Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick Tyres. So fitted them, cleaned them twice with white vinegar, and with fear and trepidation took to the boards, now normally with new tyre you feel them slip and squeak a few times while you circle around the bottom of the track and run them in, then you are off. But thees Zaffiro's DID NON OF THAT JUST GRIPPED RIGHT FROM THE START which to say the least is confidence inspiring, and they were great for the rest of the night super smooth running and plenty of grip. I am sure the Specialized tyres are a really good tyre but not for SQT use at the track, I got them on the strength of seeing them on one of the sprinters bikes asked him and he said they were fine and fast, which at speed they are but not for doing slower bike handling and control exercises.

Great fast training and race tire
For higher performance training I use the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro slick 25mm tire. These are the first Vittoria clincher tires I've tried and they are a great value for high performance training and spirited group rides. The tire measures a true 25mm wide on a 20mm wide rim. They feel just like a pure slick and give great grip and confidence in hard cornering and fast descents.
