I've been using Vittoria tires for a long time. This tire is not your typical Vittoria tire. The G compound works like they say it does, very grippy and wears well. Flat protection is great so far. I hit stuff that any other tire, well with the exception of the Conti Gators maybe, that would have flatted for sure. The rolling resistance seems high to me compared to the Vittoria Diamante lets say. Would be a good commuter tire for sure.
