A handmade Italian tire at an approachable price. The Corsa Clincher is tough enough for the abuse of everyday training but quick enough for worry-free racing. Calicot puncture protection belt keeps sharp objects out, while a 320 TPI casing provides an amazingly supple ride quality. Specialized rubber compound and diamond tread offer excellent grip for confident cornering. Black sidewalls set it apart from its sister model, the Master clincher.

  • 700c x 23mm and 25mm
  • 145 max PSI
  • Available in Black, Blue, Yellow or Red with Black sidewalls
  • 195 grams

Note: Some models of carbon fiber wheels have a sharp or inconsistent edge in the bead seat area, which could cause cuts in the casing of delicate Veloflex clinchers, potentially compromising the tires over time. Because they are not able to inspect every rim for such inconsistencies, Veloflex states that these tires are not compatible with carbon rims.

Light, very fast and puncture resistant

I have only done 2 races on very rough surface but these tires are very light and fast and have good puncture resistance. Well made tires but a little smaller than 25mm.

Durability will have to be gauged in the future

What a nice tire!

These are, by far, the nicest clincher's I've ever ridden. Anytime you can get 320tpi tires, get them. It doesn't matter to me if reviews state they don't last long, I like the suppleness of a high thread count tire. They are very tight mounting the first time but most good tires are. As for comfort, they're like riding on tubulars, I'm 6'2 190lbs, and inflate them to app 100 psi. The rubber is super grippy, you can lean hard into a turn with confidence.

I now recommend these tires to all of my friends.

Light and fast, with good handles

Got these on-sale, super good deal! A bit hard to get on the first time as others have stated, but if you leave them in the sun for a bit it isn't too bad to get on. They are a fast ride! And really grip the corners. I have only ridden then a hand full of times so far so cannot speak to long-term durability.

Nicest clincher I've ever ridden

These are, by far, the nicest clincher's I've ever ridden. Though they are very tight mounting the first time (at least on my DT RR465 rims), once the casing stretches a bit from use, they are very supple and easy to wrangle. As for comfort, they're like riding on pillows, I'm 6'4 190lb, and inflate the 700x25 to 85F 95R, and they still feel really fast. The rubber is super grippy, you can lean hard into a turn with confidence, even in wet conditions.

As for durability, I've had 2 flats in my first 1200 miles on these tires one front flat after rolling over a large piece of glass, and one rear flat after rolling over a big construction staple. Either situation would have proven difficult for even the toughest tire, so I don't fault the Veloflex. But I will admit, I'm a bit more paranoid about road debris with these tires, and sweep them with my hands a lot. In any case, both of those tires are still going strong, though the rear shows significantly more tread wear than the front, as expected. I figure I'll need to replace the rear in another 400-500 miles.

I now recommend these tires to all of my riding buddies.

Amazing tire in all categories

I just put these bad boys (25mm width) on three weeks ago and have about 370 miles on them thus far. Paired with latex tubes. I highly recommend latex for those who haven't tried them, especially with this tire. The ride quality is superior and I can't imagine running butyl with this tire.

So far, I'm wowed by these tires, and there are not many products that wow me. I've only ridden Conti GP4000s tires prior to these, so unfortunately, that's my only comparison. Really good tires as well, but in my results, the Veloflex Corsa beats it in all categories.

- Roll super fast and get up to speed quickly and easily maintains speed

- Descends and corners exceptionally well, even in wet conditions. Amazing grip. This is where the tire is far superior to the Conti. Not even a close comparison. I personally did not like the feel of the Conti tires in the corners, and I spend a lot of time climbing and descending.

- Durability I was initially concerned about the durability of these tires, due to other reviews. However, after 370 miles, both front and rear tires still look brand new with no signs of wear. I live in San Francisco - the roads in the area suck big time - potholes, cracks, choppy, glass, rocks, etc. I've had no issues (knock on wood).

- Incredibly smooth ride paired with the latex tubes. I run these at the same PSI as I did with the Conti - 100-105 in the rear, 95 in the front. I'm a male 140lbs.

- Installation The tires were fairly straight forward to install. I was able to install them on my 23mm wide HED Belgium C2 rims with only my hands and a little muscle. Certainly a little tighter than the Conti's, but I didn't experience the difficulties installing as some other reviewers noted.

- Light weight

Overall, I'm highly impressed with these tires and hope they continue to deliver as the miles add up. Give them a shot!

Excellent if racing, Fair is used everyday

These are great tires that have an excellent feel due to the high TPI count. The grip is excellent on dry roads. For a clincher, they are very light (195 gm) and nimble. However...they get tread cuts and flat easily. I have not had them long enough to accurately assess wear and durability. Get them on sale and they're a good deal.

Great tire, Great price

Veloflex tires have a great reputation. I have not used them before but the price was too good to pass up. I put them on a new Lynskey Ti bike I recently built and so far they are exactly what I expected, great rolling tire and not flats.

Great feel, quick wear

Originally I saved these for race days because they are very supple and the soft rubber wears out rather quickly. However, I now stock up when they go on sale and use them everyday because they are so pleasant to ride and I'm worth it!

Close to Tubular Ride and Cornering.

These tire are as close to tubulars as you can get. Time and money made me hang up my tubular wheels. I tried dozens lightweight clincher tires, but these tires are the only ones that have the response and secure cornering feel of tubies. I use these tires mostly for hilly rides. I would not recommend these for commuting.

These are what stays on my ride

I'am a tire junkie, have tried many brands. I have my fix with these, what I like is ride feel, don't care about miles, flats or cost. If cost, longevity& flat protection are your priorities look else where, if you want a smooth riding, light weight, fast tire, wet or dry this is it. My every day tire, I ride 6,000 miles a year, hot, cold, wet or dry.

I use a tire liner& light butyl tube, works fine,(not as nice as latex) still have a few flats a year, just fix it , never bums me out, part of biking. Used latex for a few years may again, but this set up is fine. Buy when on sale.

Really nice tire

These are really nice tires. They feel great on the road and are pretty fast as well. The only downside is that they wear out pretty fast. Recommend them for racing or events. You can use them for training, but they aren't going to get you too many miles.

A Great Riding Tire

I've read about Veloflex tires for quite a while. This is the first time that I've ridden the tire. It definitely rides as well if not better than the Conti 4000S, Schwalbe One and Vittoria Open Corsa. No comments yet on durability. The tire was easy to mount.

Good looks, supple ride

This is my second season riding on the Veloflex Corsa clincher tires. I really like the look and feel of these tires below me as I peddle the streets and trails around Minnesota. They feel stable on the straights, handling different pavement types and conditions quite well. I have the confidence to dive into corners at speed and these tires have performed well in both good and inclement weather. They seem to wear about the same as the Conti's I replaced these for, and my only reason for knocking off one star on my rating is due to the fact that the tread seems susceptible to nicks and cuts much easier than other tires I've ran previously.

There are better choices

Not happy with these tires. Mounting for me was easy and tires road really nice when they held air. Within the first 50 miles of mounting them I had 2 flats from punctures. They are not made for NJ roads. There are better choices.
