About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.

|Recommended Vittoria Tyre Pressure|
For normal road surface and dry conditions. Note rim specifications regarding max tire pressures allowed. For wet or rough roads, decrease by 0.5 bar (7.5 psi). For tubular tyres, increase by 0.5 bar (7.5 psi).
Ideal tyre pressure is subject to many variables such as road surface, weather conditions, bike materials and setup, rider’s weight and lastly, riding style. The best way to fine tune ideal tyre pressures is field testing a variety of different pressures. One method is to use a short criterium style circuit, preferrable with a variety of corners.
Start with the suggested pressure and ride a lap. Each following lap, lower the pressure by 5psi until you feel the tyres start to “wallow” or move a bit. This is your lowest pressure point. Return to the above table pressures and raise 5psi each lap until the tyres start to bounce and skip/move across the surface. This is your max pressure. Decrease by 5 psi from here until you feel you have the best pressure for the conditions.
Keep a tyre pressure log, including road surface, techinicality of the course, weather conditions, tyre type, brand, and TPI. Finally, the bike you used and your weight on that day. Over time, this log will become a valuable tool for referencing tyre pressures and road conditions in order to optimize your performance when on race day.

Magazine reviews for Vittoria Pave CG Open Clincher Road Tyre
Review from Bikeradar
Riders at Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders often use tyres with green bands â€" these are Vittoria's well-proven Pave CG tubulars. And if you want to enjoy the performance of the Pave CGs without swapping to tubs, then Vittoria also offers the Open Pave CG III.
Available like the tubular in 25mm or 27mm widths, our 25mm tyres weigh 257g each, and share the tubular's Corespun 320TPI (threads per inch) casing. This cotton casing is handmade in the same way as its tubular cousin, except with a clincher bead instead of being sewn up around a latex tube. The casings also contain Kevlar, which adds strength to the suppleness that's delivered by the high thread count.
With our tyres inflated to 80psi - a typical cobbles pressure - the Pave CGs demonstrated a great compromise between speed and grip, with no perceptible increase in rolling resistance compared to the 23mm tyres they replaced.
The tread pattern is identical to the much loved Corsa CX road tyre, with a file tread centre strip and diagonal ridges on each side, and despite theories suggesting that a smooth surfaced tyre offers as much grip as one with a file tread, we believe this tried and trusted design to be superior when the surface is changeable.
Taking in flooded, muddy, thorny country lanes, and potholed unmade roads, the Vittorias never once gave us cause to question their grip, their supple casing ensuring every turn or direction change felt secure.
The added air volume certainly increased comfort, and the wider contact patch that results is especially reassuring under hard braking on a slimy road. After a couple of hundred miles, we've yet to experience any cuts, flats or doubts that the Pave CG III is a superior tyre for poor riding conditions.
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
For 2013, the Open Pave CG (no Evo in the name) is listed by Vittoria as being available in 700x25 or 700x27 sizes, with the green bands on the shoulders.
Given this is listed as 700x25 and the green bands are the same, is it safe to assume that this the newer, 2013 Open Pave?
Additionally, will Wiggle be stocking the 700x27mm version?
