All-purpose open tubular that will give you more than you can expect from a clincher tyre. Built with the same 320 TPI casing of our tubular tyres for low rolling resistance and incredibly supple ride feelings. Suited for training and racing for everyone that wants the excellent characteristics of a tubular and the easiness of mounting of a clincher tyre.
The special tread will grant outstanding grip and cornering stability in all weather conditions. Corsa models come with black coloured sidewalls for a more aggressive look and four colours of choice for the rubber tread.

I've been riding Veloflex tires exclusively for about 15 years...first Pave's (now discontinued) and now Corsa. Great tires (or tyres, if you prefer) for general riding. They are super firm with the "almost" feel of a tubular. Two cautions (not complaints): I find they last about 2500 miles (including a front/back rotation at 1250 miles). So don't think they'll be on your wheel for several seasons. Secondly, the initial mounting of a new Velofleex is a complete bear because of the tightness of the bead. I recommend letting a shop do the virgin mounting. I've pinch-flatted too many tubes during the mounting. Best to let the pros swear at your wheel than you. After that initial mounting, the bead seems to "loosen" up somewhat and is a manageable field changeover, if and when needed.
Dear Probikekit, Difficult for me to evaluate these nice tires, we are in full winter and receive yesterday 50 cm of snow. Regards Marcel Perron
Veloflex tires are still handmade in Italy... Need I say more?! But I will. Absolutely love these tyres. Great grip, confident cornering, stable in wet conditions. Pair them with latex tubes and the suppleness is immediately evident. Reasonable puncture resistance. The box says don't use with carbon clinchers but I spoke with Veloflex CS and they said it can be done at your own risk. To quote them directly: "we reported this information because after some tests resulted that some carbon rims of the last production models have really sharp and aggressive edges in the bead seat area, this could lead to the casing cutting of our clinchers. Not being able to check all the rims on the market (this depends on the single rim and it is not related to a certain brand or a model) we wrote this warning on our boxes, the responsibility of the use of our clinchers on those rims is on behalf of the final user". So I read that as it was a problem in the past but shouldn't be with newer rims.... I could be wrong but haven't had any issues yet. The only reason they don't get a perfect rating is because mounting them the first time is incredibly hard! Once they've been mounted, they are the easiest tyres to take on and off, but that first time fresh out the box, it can be a real struggle.
The cotton casing of this tire is one of the most supple on the market. While it will not last as long as some tires, the pleasure of riding a tire of this quality far out weighs its shorter life span. I have found these tires to resist punctures and cuts pretty well. It helps to avoid punctures and improves ride quality if you run the tires at a pressure that is under 100 psi. I find them to ride best at around 90 psi for my weight. The larger volume in the 25c adds to the great ride quality and also helps improve cornering over the 22c version. This is without a doubt one of my favorite tires to ride.
