Strengths:    Rolling performance, cornering, confidence inspiring, durability

Weaknesses:    Susceptible to cuts

Bottom Line:   
I purchased the Corsa's based on the recommendations posted in this thread and I couldn't be more pleased with following the consensus of the users of roadbikereview. Initially, I was concerned after a couple consecutive flats but since that time (July 2011) the tires have been simply excellent. My bike rolls better than any bike when the downhills come and cornering is fast, controlled and confidence inspiring. I'm over two hundred pounds on a Cannondale CAAD8 with Mavic Ksyrium Elites running around 100 psi and I've been extremely satisfied. Wear performance is as others have described, susceptible to cuts but it keeps going. I've accumulated more than 2000 miles in 7-months. I've limited tire experience but these are the best tires I've ever owned.

Strengths:    Fast,light and beautiful Italian style.

Weaknesses:    Can be a little hard to mount on some types of rims.

Bottom Line:   
Great road feel. Very comfortable and responsive. Best road clincher I've ridden.

This tire is not for every day use but more for racing or special rides. Any of the tires with the same specs will cut and wear faster than most tires. Compare apples to apples

Strengths:    Tread holds very well, even on wet roads. They are easy to get on and off and can withstand higher pressures than most clenchers. Very resistant to gravel and other road debris.

Weaknesses:    seems like sidewalls wear faster than tread.

Bottom Line:   
Very impressed with these tires. When I first got them I inflated them to 10 bar and took them for a test ride, hit a piece of glass and tore a huge chunk out of the tread on the rear tire. 2 and a half years and 1500 miles later the hole finally wore through. Up until then, 0 flats.

Strengths:    Very good traction in dry weather and good in wet weather, puncture resistant and long wearing for a racing tire.

Weaknesses:    The sidewalls are easily damaged and they do not wear as well as some of the less aggresive tires I've tried. They are a racing tire what do you expect?

Bottom Line:   
A durable racing tire. I've had a hot love for Open Corsa's but like a bad girlfriend they've left me stuck out on the road (It's a whole other review). The Veloflex tires just keep going. They're a little bit slower than the Corsa's in the turns but they still inspire confidence. The ride is not quite up to the Corsa's, but dang good. I have had good luck with the Velos avoiding flats and they wear well for a racing tire. I'm giving up the hot love and marrying the reliable Veloflex.

Can't find a 700 x 28 black kevlar bead quality tire..Suggestions Please

I'd like to try a 700 x 28 tire but all I see are wire beaded or something else with funky sidewalls. I want black sidewalls, slick or very minimal tread and sub 300g weight. So much scalded concrete and potholes..... Any suggestions? Thanks SBRead More »
