Ordered a pair of the Vittorio's, 700x38. Coming off four flats on Panaracer GKs in as many weeks, mostly small glass shards, at least the ones I could find.

Flatted my rear Panaracer on Thursday and my front one today. Sealant filled the holes before I lost too much pressure so both rides were saved. I am looking forward to getting my Marathons which should arrive soon. I am very curious to hear your impressions of the Vittoria's, I may have to get a set of those too.

Any first impressions on the Vittorio tires?

Yes. They feel very solid and smooth around turns. Perhaps a little more rolling resistance than the panaracer's but hardly noticeable. Running them at between 80 - 90 psi. Great tires so far.
