Great rolling, long lasting tubulars
I started riding Veloflex around 5 years ago and they never dissapoint. They will give you a soft ride (for example at 170 plus I only pump them up to 70 psi back/60 front for their 27mm tires, 10 more psi each for the Arenbergs. They will also wear slowly and rately ever flat, at least on decent roads.
All in all I rather pay a bit more for these and know I have top quality than on other cheap brands.
I've been itching to try Veloflex for a while now and as soon as my recent tubs expired I took the plunge. Superbly made, easy to fit and a super price from Merlin. These however are the tip of the iceberg in terms of benefits - quite simply the ride is sublime and the grip is outstanding compared with my previous Vittoria Corsa Evo/CX tubs I was running. So far so good in terms of wear/punture resistance but I'm super pleased with the purchase and top marks to Merlin for their assistance and promptness of delivery.
I have been on these 25mm for about three years and they are great as always. You can`t go wrong with Veloflex; its all I ride.
These tubbies are great for rough roads and cobbles
This is my favorite tubular tire right now. It is a joy to mount on a rim, compared to the super-tight Continental tubulars that I used to use. I weigh about 168 lb and I run this tire on my Zipp wheels for day to day riding. I use ~90 lb psi in both the front and back and that provides a very comfortable ride. The tires are long lasting; I think I got about 9 months/ 6300+ miles on the rear before it finally wore out, and the front still looks good.
