    New vs Old Vittoria Paves

    So I just went to order some of these and noticed for 2013 the Pave is now listed as 25mm when it was 24mm. That and the usual dose of marketing speaking improvements compared to the 24mm version of prior years.

    Just curious if anyone has tried the new ones and if so what you think vs the old 24mm Paves.

    I obviously can calculate the difference between 24 and 25mm but in reality.....did you notice much of a difference in size as far as frame clearance goes? The 24mm work for me but not a ton of room left over so before ordering a supply I just want to make sure they didn't get significantly bigger. We know how tires co's can be with measurments so I just want to make sure that they really only increased 1mm like Vit says.

    Thank you.

    I haven't noticed any difference (size or performance) besides the different placement of green (sides vs center). I've got only 150 or so miles on them so far.

    They measure 24.5 or so on my Kinlin 270 rims (which are pretty narrow).

    I saw that too, I have the center stripe clincher 24's, but I'm interested in trying the new 27s that they released as well.

    Thanks hobe.

    mjduct, I don't think the 27s actually been released. I looked at a bunch of websites yesterday when ordering 25s and they all had 27 listed as "due on such and such a date" or something along those line. So you should be able to get them soon if not right now.

    The 27mm version should be an amazing tire for fast riding on really bad roads and heavy guys. I'm fairly light and my frame probably won't fit them anyway so I'll likely never try them but for specific riding conditions and riders a 27mm pave should be a dream tire.

    I've used the 24s for a few years and just got a pair of 25's. On wider HED rims, they both measure out to about 26mm, and ride almost the same.

    I also got a pair of the new 27mm clinchers...can't really recommend them for pure road riding, as they're a bit squishy feeling. Great for dirt roads.
