Mr Comerford Excellent tyre I'm using the 28mm size on Mavic Ksyrium Carbon wheelset. Very easy to mount on rims very supple tyre yet hard wearing 2500kms from rear double that from front. Great grip in all weather conditions. 85psi rear 80psi front make for a very comfy ride. Recommended at sale price Merlin wont be beaten on value.
louis Great deal on some high end road tires. These ride like tubular tires with latex tubes.
Mr Portanier Still a great tyre , responsive and supple ride
Stephen Provides a comfortable ride and confidence inspiring cornering grip along with good straight line efficiency. One of the best tires for an older road bike that fits a maximum 25mm tire.
david I have been using these for years. They are comfortable and fast and I have hardly ever had a puncture.
Brian Handmade Italian tyres which are fast rolling, have great puncture resistance, provide superb grip and are less than £20 each...what's not to like?
old bald guy the GP5000 might have higher ratings and lower rolling resistance, but this tire has way more suppleness and feel for the road. a dream upon which to ride.
Louise Fantastic tyres! Really love these and great value too.
Franco I’ve been riding these tyres exclusively since I was first introduced to them in 2007 for good reason; unmatched quality, performance in all conditions and price. In my humble opinion no other clincher comes close. Simply brilliant and peerless ! Cannot recommend more highly !!
John My favourite clincher. running at 110F 120R on zipp carbons. rolls smooth and soaks up the road buzz. grip 100% in dry and wet and not a puncture
William So smooth I stopped to check if I was getting a flat 😁. Shipping impressively fast. Price so good I ordered a second set 👍
Mr Moss Super value at Merlin price. Wanted an open tubular for fast dry days. Very grippy and very fast - similar to Vittoria Corsa. They were incredibly tight to get on the rim - another reason I would only go out in the dry on smooth roads, I don't want to be stuck on a verge in the rain wrestling these!
Tom I have been riding Veloflex tires on my performance bikes for a decade now. Never disappoint. It is so supple of smooth. Give it a try.
Mr Ong i just like the high tpi for comfort ride.
Mr alexander Italian hand-made in Italy sub 200Gr clinchers. Proper serious grippy race rubber! A steal at the money. Prompt delivery.
Paul Having ridden Michelin, Vittoria, Continental and Schwalbe I think these are the best performing tyres
john Lovely, fast rolling tyres. Easy to mount and very light. I bought the 25mm version and they actually measure 23mm on my Reynolds wheels. I researched and found this out before buying, they are much smaller size for size than Continental or Vittoria.
Mr Robinson Excellent quality tyre. Very pleased so far
KEITH Excellent quality tyre, had a few sets of these and I consider them better than Vittoria Corsa. Come up small and 28mm is more like 25/26mm.
John A J Excellent tyre rides really well have used before and will order more when needed.
Mr Froelich When you already have a decent bike, it usually costs a lot to make a change that noticeably improves the ride. Here is the opposite: a tire that costs less than many high-end competitors but feels unmistakably better: smooth, lively, fast, and confidence-inspiring. Everybody needs to give it a try.
Mr Keeley Great price and excellent service. Not the easiest to fit especially with latex tubes.
John I have been using these tyres for few years now and have to say they are good. Easy on and off rim. Puncture resistant and really roll well. Grippy surface that does not pick up debris and always a plus they look good as.
Ric Veloflex are the best tire I`ve found. Supple ride, fast, good value.
Mr Chmielewski Great, grip good for traning and racing
John C A bit of a switch for me from my regular Rubinho Pros but the Veloflex seems to give a quieter ride and look really good. Ill often wipe them down before a ride or show their colour off!
Chow Great ride quality. Allows you to feel the road without getting beaten up. Fast enough to be raced too.
Mr Fear These tyres are perhaps the best on the market. They transform ride comfort and grip, in part due to the 320 tip cotton casing.
Henry Wonderfully grippy, supple, lightweight tyres. Not the most puncture resistant or hard-wearing- better for summer roads and lighter riders.
James One of the best riding tires available and at a great price. In my experience they do run small for the size but the ride is very supple. I have a hard time telling the difference between these and my tubulars when I'm out on the road. I've yet to punture one but I do ride on generally clean roads.
Mr Honn The best riding "clincher" money can buy! I use them on my touring bike and have logged endless miles with zero problems. Technically they're called "open tubulars" as they are made of the same material as their tubualr cousins. Treat yourself and shod your favorite mount with a pair of these.
Mr SIU Worth every penny, exceptional performance to price, good for everyday ride.
TB in Florida Supple casing provides a nice feel on the road. The grip in the dry and wet is without any issue for training on the road. The price is good compared to other options with high thread count casing. The tread life is decent , other tires (Vittoria Rubino Pro) offer longer tread life but without the nice ride. Puncture resistance is good but not up to bad road conditions or facing a lot of debris (glass etc.) . If you experience punctures often look to something more durable.
Mr Berry The closest thing to tubulars in a clincher I have found. Fast, smooth, and confident on corners. With the softer, grippier rubber they don't last forever, but I come back to them year after year.
Eddie Veloflex Corsa clinchers are my favourite tyres - I use them exclusively on my race wheels - they look and feel like tubulars
Mr Lancaster Very pleased after a couple of rides. Easy to fit without levers, excellent grip in the wet/dry and roll nicely. No punctures so far...
Mr Keen I was very impressed with just how smooth and fast these tyre are. They take a bit of muscle to fit them, but its well worth the effort. No punctures yet . Awesome tyres.
Mr Watkinson Great tyre for fast riding and racing. They are puncture resistant and grippy. As close as you'll get to a tub. They don't last long which is why it's recommended to only use them for racing.
