Vittoria Open Pave EVO-CG tyre

if you are after a Classics-looking tyre, don’t look any further than the Vittoria Open Pave EVO-CG — nothing shouts ‘Roubaix’ louder than these green and black treads.

Coming in a 24mm width, the Pave has plenty of air volume to add a touch of comfort, especially in winter, and a bit more rubber on the road. Needless to say, these tyres still run more than fast enough.

After enduring a winter of riding on some rough old roads the SiO2 3D compound has gripped well on water-drenched and mud-engulfed tarmac but has been a little susceptible to cutting up. Nevertheless, most of the debris has not managed to get past the PRB puncture protection, with Vittoria’s Corespun 290tpi casing. 

Verdict

The Vittoria Open Pave EVO-CG looks the part and the ride is excellent – far superior to a stiff winter tyre.
