anybody have an update on these tires, specifically the P Zero 700x25c ? RR and punture resistance ?
I hated them. But that's just me.
First off they come out the box with the mold release gel on them, and sods law it was rainng first ride I had. Absolutely lethal. So my bad luck / bad choice not to run them in the dry. Never had that issue with other tyres, and that probably clouded my judgement.
From there then I just had bad luck with them. Started with front tyre blowout when I hit a bid stone when descening at 68kph. Doubt any other tyre would have done any better. But then had a run of a few punctures, combined with still not being 100% confident in the handling in the wet.
Also, didn't 'feel' they were that fast compared to my normal go to of Vittoria Corsas (with latex tube). Indeed I wasn't hugely impressed compared to my Rubino Pro training tyres (the P zero were faster, but not much by feel).
And finally then I got a huge gash in one after 6-7 rides. So then took the other off and it's in the pile of all the other rubbish bike bits that I insist on keeping for reasons that are as much a mystery to me as my wife, but that doesn't mean I ever intend to do anything with it all.....
