Mr TAKAHASHI Great driving comfort.Excellent!
Free My Willie This is my 4th order of Veloflex Arenberg Tubular Road Tyre .. where I am limited to 4 tyres per order. Yes - I purchased 12 of these - they are THAT GOOD. Sure these are the older model now but these tyres has been "proven" by the years they been in service till only recently Veloflex rolled out a new range. They are long lasting, durable - REAL DURABLE - where on my 1st tyre I hit a 2cm sharp thorn and I though I was done there -- nope - pulled it out and kept riding. Somehow it did not make it past the puncture protection. They grip really well in the dry - I cant comment too much for wet but I never taken a slide on these in the rain unlike continentals which I dispise because I kept sliding on them in wet that left me with zero confidence. So far it's held up in the wet (not too aggressive riding). I am a heavy rider at 95kg - prob 100kg with full kit on a titanium Lynskey road bike for reference.
Steve Pretty much the same tire and excellent ride as the Roubaix with black sidewalls . Mount up straight and true.
NG Always read about how good these are supposed to be and it's true. Superb ride quality. So good, that I bought a second tyre within days for the front. Easier to fit and a better ride than the conti gatorskin I had previously.
Steve H These are my favorite tubular tires. Easy to mount and they don't puncture very often. I usually end up deciding to replace the tire only when I have worn the rear down to nothing and flats become more of a risk.
louis My favourite performance/racing tubular tire. Great in all conditions, dry or wet, even on rough roads. Rides nice, and comfy. Good for 3500 km's + under my 74 kg.
louis The best tubulars for all round training and racing on any quality roads, good or bad. Great durability. Quality construction and finish every time. A great investment for all your tubular wheels.
Mr Palter Great rolling, long lasting tubulars
Daniel Atencio 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.
Paul Whitaker 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.
Daniel 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.
J Bouwer These tubbies are great for rough roads and cobbles
Steve H 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.
