Strengths:    Durability, very puncture resistent! Low rolling resistance. Excelent finishing.

Weaknesses:    None that I could notice. The only bad thing is that they are a bit difficult to find in stores.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing product. Certainly the best tire I have ever used in my 10 years experience. One detail worth mentioning: mine are labeled Hutchinson. You will find Veloflex tires under a variety of names, and even unlabeled, as pro teams erase it due to sponsorship deals.

Strengths:    oh man they are comfortable as hell. rolls real nice, plenty of grip. love the black sidewalls.

Weaknesses:    wasn't cheap, not the lightest, but okay, I'll take the tradeoff for a magic carpet ride. plus why cheap out on tires if you're spending a k or so on your set of fancy hoops?

Bottom Line:   
I got a pair of these after plenty of research and coming off a set of veloflex black clinchers (best clinchers i've tried so far) for my new easton ec90 aeros. I had a very good experience with the blacks so I gave these guys a try. super comfortable, very well made, straight and mounts pretty easily.

The first was a guy no insurance who did a rolling stop and hit me square no real damage to the bike just minor scratches. The sec ... Read More »

Has anybody ever true carbon wheel with bladed spokes?

I been putting it off for quite a while. The Boyd 38mm carbon clinchers most likely got out of true from all the cracks and small potholes on the roads I ride on. I only notice the rubbing on the brake pads with the front wheel when I climb out of the saddle. Another factor is likely I set my bra ... Read More »

Cannondale Super Six 105 Carbon 2012 - gear problem - new parts?

hi, The gear cable recently broke on me on the way home from a cycle. During the way home I was stuck in the hardest gear (at the back). I switched to the smaller gear on the front and I could manage although it didn't feel safe(chain slack). I brought it to a LBS and he fixed the gear cable. ... Read More »
