Pros & Cons
Pros & Cons
- The Zaffiro Pro G2 is made for distance and, as such, is a very good training tyre.
- The renewed Graphene 2.0 (G2) compound ensures that the Zaffiro Pro has a good balance of durability, rolling resistance and grip.
- As the carcass consists of extra thick nylon threads, the tyre's puncture protection is excellent.
- The focus of the Zaffiro Pro G2 is on durability, which makes its rolling resistance relatively high.
- Better puncture protection goes at the expense of low weight, as is the case with the Zaffiro Pro G2.
Makeover for 2021!
The Zaffiro Pro G2 has been completely made over for the year 2021. The tread has been fully redesigned, and now has elements inspired by Vittoria's more expensive Rubino and Corsa collections. The grooves in the centre of the tread are derived from the Corsa competition tyre and enable the tyre to mould itself more smoothly to the road surface. The texture on the tyre shoulders comes from the Rubino collection; with the Graphene 2.0 rubber compound, this ensures cornering grip in all conditions.
High durability, good grip
In addition to the tread, the carcass was also part of the makeover. It now has slightly thicker nylon threads, which has improved puncture protection and durability without compromising on performance. At the end of the day, the Zaffiro Pro G2 is still the number one mile-eater of Vittoria's road bike tyres. It is designed to last long; the Graphene 2.0 rubber compound has been adjusted in such a way that the focus is on durability; the rubber is somewhat harder, which has required sacrificing some of the tyre's grip. Nevertheless, the Zaffiro Pro G2 is a very balanced tyre that still gives you plenty of grip during fast descents and in wet weather.
For several years now, Vittoria has been using the magical material, graphene, in the production of its tyres. In 2019 Vittoria presented the second generation compounds, viz. the Graphene 2.0 compound, for which Vittoria uses 'functionalised graphene', whereby different quantities of graphene are incorporated in the compound. These quantities vary between 1 and 10 percent to adapt the rubber composition to the circumstances. In this way Vittoria is able to bring the tyre's performance to a higher level in terms of speed, wet grip, durability and puncture protection.

Beware of tight fit and balloon size.
I had the previous generation in size 28 and now I got this in 25. the old one with 28 had 1 mm clearance to the frame. this 25 has more than 5 mm. it looks like it's the size of a 23 mm.
25 is smaller than advertised
Amazing quality tyre for the price, I got the 28c
Amazing quality, amazing service from the guys at mantel had them delivered in three days to Ireland. The tyre is great I was using a 700x40 gravel tyre and switched expecting it to be very bumpy and stiff which it wasn't, great for all round cycling and climbing.
Good rolling resistance
Hard to fit at first
Will need two tyre leavers to put on
Ik zocht goedkope vervanging van mijn 622 racefiets. Voor alsnog erg tevreden. Slijtvastheid zou op lange termijn moeten blijken.
Good buy if you find it at a reasonable price.
Got it as my primary tyres at a reasonable price from Mantel. I use Vittoria since a few years.
Decent grip in all conditions
Good training tyre
Could be more puncture resistant
prijs/kwaliteit de beste
ik zocht nieuwe 28mm banden voor mijn woon/werk fiets en deze zijn prijs/kwaliteit het beste. Natuurlijk is de rolweerstand hoger dan mijn 25mm gp4000II's maar die banden zijn 2x duurder en veel gevoeliger voor lekrijden. Op de velg zetten ging makkelijk mits je de juiste techniek gebruikt (zie GNC op youtube). ik heb er nog niet door de regen mee gereden, maar ik heb er alle vertrouwen in.
