Yup. You feel faster when you're bouncing like a bucking bronco.It might FEEL slower but there are plenty of studies showing that for a compliant casing tire, it won't BE slower. The FEEL faster mindset is how we got to running 120 psi with narrow road tires at the expense of traction, comfort, and tire wear with zero benefit for speed.
TBO, I cannot tell a difference in speed between 25mm and 28mm tires. I do notice 28's have a nicer ride. Nor can I tell a difference in comfort or speed between Vittoria Rubinos and Corsas.
