- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
Had them in 25c. They are smooth, sticky and pretty much bulletproof. I rode well over 4,000 miles on my last pair and only had two punctures. In both cases casing was punctured and debris was kicked out. In one case I didn’t realize I had a flat until the next day. Measure up a little bigger, maybe a 26c which helps with smoothness. Only negative I have for them is they were difficult to change the first time I got a flat, but with so few it’s almost a nonissue. I don’t know how they compare to 5000s but it’s almost not worth finding out since you’re probably in diminishing returns territory between the two tires (at least for most riders).
Switched back to Rubino Pro 3s and I regret it and will be going back after they wear out.
