Which track clincher Tyres would you recommend.

Postby fbaltona » Sat Oct 19, 2013 2:57 pm

I currently have Vittoria Zaffiro Slick Foldable 700c x 23c which need replacing.

I only use indoors and for training. Not looking ATM at racing, but not ruling it out.

What would you recommend?

Continental Grand Prix Supersonic Road Bike Tyre Folding 700 x 20
Brilliant indoors and outdoors. Get them on Ebay for $62 each.

Indoor wooden velodrome, go Vittoria Evo Pista 19mm - fabulous light race tyre, get them from the UK, approx. $100 each?

For a clincher tough enough for training and fast enough to race when you decide to I recommend the Vittoria Diamante Pro Light tyre.

I second these. They were on my first track bike when I got it. They lasted 2 years on our asphalt track for both training and racing. Last season, I put on a set of Conti SuSos and they cut up a bit, and even more suprisingly cut up pretty bad down at DGV. The rear is now retired after half a season on our track and 5 RAW meets at DGV. I jumped on some more Vittorias for this season.

Regardless of Conti or Vittoria, you should be able to grab either for under $50 on a regular basis from the usual euro shops.

Just curious why you would choose the Vittoria Diamante Pro lite and not the Pro Pista? The pista is a track tyre?

They are what came with my first track bike when I bought it. They were also recommended to me and as I have been happy with them have continued buying the Pro Lights...

I've found they work really well on timber indoors as well as concrete. And like Brawlo, on the rear I've found it last a couple of seasons racing and training mostly on our clubs concrete track. Though now they are relegated to training duty as I race on tubulars these days.

I guess when you're riding on outdoor tracks it would help with grip and less wear. Good call. Thanks

I've decided to go with the Vittoria Diamante Pista Pro. With only indoor riding I think these will be great.
Thanks for your help

I ordered my Tyres from chainreaction a few weeks ago. But unfortunately my order has gone missing. So I'm receiving a refund. Don't want to wait again for the Vittorias, so I've gone found an Australian seller and bought the Veloflex Records 20.
They were delivered this morning and they are already on the bike. They look great. Can't wait to try them out. Will try this Saturday.

Any need to scrub in?

I've bought a few things from these guys online. Aussie distributors of Vittoria i think, and they've always been quick with good pricing. They have the Diamante Pro Pista for $57 with free shipping for orders over a hunge.
