Vittoria Randonneur Hyper yyres review
Vittoria’s new touring slick has only light slits (‘sipes’) for tread, so is best suited to tarmac surfaces and hardpack.
Like Vittoria’s Rubino, the Randonneur has Kevlar particles in the rubber mix where most tyres have carbon or silicon, in order to improve durability and grip.
Puncture protection comes from a weave of aramid threads, which is more effective at stopping larger sharps than ﬁne ones.
Though bigger than most touring tyres, it rolls just as well so it’s a shame it doesn’t also come in narrower widths.
