Great tires - good value!

Have ridden many other tires. Every tire has its &- but over all I really like these. Rolling resistance is very good, they hold great on roads even in wet conditions. Like Vittoria, but these seem to hold the air little better for 1 day race or ride.

Bought these w/tire discount so the value was great.

Absolutely no reason for me to switch!

Excellent racing you're

I'm using these tires exclusively for racing. They are very supple and seem to wear very well. I do not have enough miles to comment on durability yet. This tires have latex tubes which provides for less rolling resistance, but the side effect is that the tires will lose air pressure faster than tires with rubber tubes. For whatever reason, in comparison with other tubulars like this (Schwalbe Ultremo HT) these do not seem to lose as much air overnight.

Simply look at the pro teams buy to ride. Veloflex when possible

Put simply, Veloflex is the benchmark for all racing tubulars. There are more supple tires, and more durable tires. But nobody matches the balance.

To the earlier reviewers: ALL latex tubes will drop that much PSI. These are racing specific tires you need to pump up before every ride. The fact that they include latex tubes is part of the reason they are faster. If you want a tubular that will hold air forever, buy a Tufo or Conti.

smooth with grip

Once i got a pair of veloflex any type tire, I was hooked they ride smooth and grip well, depending on your desire to roll, race, or tour long. I suggest a more durable tire, if your looking for a tire that will last for 4000 miles or more, but you wont get a better feeling tire than this.

Not yet ready for prime time

These are my first set of tubulars and I'm currnetly stretching them out on the wheels (Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35) and they seem to fit nicely and have a nice feel and tread pattern. However, they are losing about 40-50 psi over the course of a few days time... both front and back the same. So, I don't think it's the extension, as I applied plumbers tape to the threads and they appear tight. I bought a second pair of the same tires and expect the PSI reduction to be the same after seeing a previous post indicating a similar problem. But, I hope the ride is worth it.... yet I'm open to other suggestions.

Excellent grip, supple ride, but these do not hold air well

These tires have superb grip and ride very supple. They soak up bumps and give extreme confidence in corners due to their grip. I had 2 original tires and both dropped 40-50 psi after only 3 days. My rear tire picked up a piece of glass that made a 1/8 inch hole in it so I replaced it with my 3rd Veloflex Carbon. This too dropped 40-50 psi after only 3 days. If you don't mind pumping them up every 2-3 days these are great tires.

I replaced the set with Mavic Yksiums which only drop 5-10 psi after 7 days, and are cheaper.

Happy with Veloflex Carbon Tubular

Purchased this tire when it was on sale. It fits easily on my Zipp FC 808 and Zipp 900 Disc and appears to ride well.
