I have been using Rubino Pro for years. They last me about 3,500 to 4,000 miles, unless I was lucky enough to hit a large nail just right. I used to get the orange and black and now get the red and black.
I have been able to ride these tires on a few rides now, and I am super impressed. The roll well, have excellent grip, and do a great job at flat prevention. I have ridden them in the rain and have found they do excellent there as well. I have done long gravel descents with out any issues, and I have done full speed curvy descents with confidence all while enjoying a surprisingly supple ride for a training clincher tire. This is a great all around tire and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a fast, grippy, and reliable tire.
These tires have been fast and smooth, great for paved roads and for the moderate gravel roads in my area. Also, these tires went on my rims surprisingly easily. Didn't even need to use levers. At $36 each I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again.
3rd set of Rubino Pro tires. I'm 6' 0' - 185 - the roads available in Wyoming are primarily chip seal where I ride and usually full of shoulder debris and sand and gravel left from road salting and sanding. With my weight and the road type I do not get the miles out of these tires that I see in others reviews. I'm also one who will put on new rubber at the slightest sign of squaring off. If I rotate every 500 I might get more miles. I'm on a Trek so I've used some of the Bontrager lines as well some of the Michelin lines. Others I ride with swear by the Contas but after trying my first Rubinos I've kept buying them as I need them. Flats are few and it seems like when I do get a flat it's from metal - I can find the only braid on the road for 50 miles. Never had one due to glass or sharp gravel schards. I'm anxious for the snow and ice to be gone to see how this new line of compound and the graphene hold up under my weight and the endless miles of chip seal - easy to mount with minimal rolling resistance. Bike is black so I get the red sidewall just for the way it looks - have run size 23 but prefer the 25 just for a little more air under my 57 year old butt. I change out at around 1200-1500 miles.

I ride my road bike almost everyday - not a racer anymore. No cobblestones just paved streets. I bought these tires after reading the reviews on line. I have had them for a week and had a flat everyday (7 flats). The good news is I am very proficient at changing flats while out on the road. I think I am down to 10 minutes. I know some people have had really good luck with theses tires but I am not one of them.
