Vittoria Randonneur Hyper vs Pro

Postby Biffidus » Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:20 pm

Trying to decide between the Randonneur Pro and Randonneur Hyper tyres, probably in 700x32 size. I've been using the 26x1.5 Pros on my MTB and found them great for punctures but noticeably slower than the sports contacts they replaced.

Has anyone tried the Hypers? How do they compare?

I've been riding on 37mm Hypers on my commuter for a couple of years now. I love em. Zero punctures, great grip, fast rolling, and they look good too. When they finally wear out, I'll be buying another pair.

The Randonneur hyper is a lot lighter than the pro, but the pro is, from my experience, extremely puncture resistent. If you are after more speed, go the hyper, if you want the best proctection against punctures, go the pro.

Either way, they are both very good tyres.
