Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick tyres £20

Slick road rubber for mounatin bikes

BikeRadar score 4/5

The Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick is lightweight and completely slick, which is better for grip on tarmac because that puts more rubber in contact with the road – and because bikes don’t aquaplane in the wet.

Puncture resistance from the nylon breaker strip is good rather than great, but the trade-off in speed will be worth it for many.

This is a road training tyre that happens to be available for mountain bikes too. Few 26in tyres – Continental’s Ultra Gatorskin and Specialized’s Fat Boy are two – can keep pace.
