    Anyone use Vittoria Open Pave EVO CG tires?

    Vittoria Open Pave EVO CG tires?

    Seem a bit beefy and are 25mm wide. But the best part is they look like they're celeste will look purdie on my bianchi.

    But I'm kind of use to racing type tires on my fixie like 23mm forteza tri comps.

    Any opinions on these tires?

    I have been using these for about a year they are 24mm not 25mm have'nt had one flat they ride like a tubular and have good grip, I'am sold on these especially if your a big rider. they really smooth the road out.If there is a better tire I would like to know about it.I highly recomend trying

    I guess back in the old days of 2005, flip phones, and stone wheels, small 25mm tires were considered "beefy"

    Isn't that two different things. 'beefy' AND '25mm'. Besides which, "they are 24mm not 25mm" ;)

    Another thing in cycling that will apparently never go away is the vanity layer. ;)

    "best part is they look like they're celeste will look purdie on my bianchi"


    What's a flip phone?

    Well, let me tell you what I think Vittoria did. I have played with my share of Pave and Corsas.

    The Pave 24 back in the day was a big 24. It was not as big as my Corsa that I got at the same time that was a 25mm. The Corsas ran big too.

    So, what I think Vittoria did was just use the same casing, but called their new Pave a 25. It was nearly that anyway. So, no big deal.

    The new 27 Pave do measure a tad bigger than the current and old Corsas (25 mm). So, I think that could be a new casing.

    Oh and Let's talk Pave colors............old ones started black, then went green middle, then green sides, now black again. The greenies look freakin' Christmas awesome on my red CAAD 10

    Yep, love the Corsas, love the Paves. Mine are the older 24mm's, I think.
    They do feel very tubular-ish.
    Can be a real beeotch to get on some rims though.
    Dunno about celeste, the green on my Pave CG's is very green.
