Veloflex's best all around design.

Ideal for road racing, criterium, fast training and recreational riding, the Veloflex Master Clincher delivers outstanding grip and cornering stability thanks to a full diamond tread pattern plus a special road-holding rubber compound that together allow you to push to the extreme while cornering, without ever losing traction and control.

The 320 TPI corespun casing allows the lowest possible weight without compromising strength or comfort, while the Calicot puncture resistant layer keeps sharp objects out. Overall, this is one of the most responsive and comfortable tires available.

Classic gum colored sidewalls set it apart from the Corsa model and blend beautiful with virtually any frame and wheel color. Handmade in Italy. Size 700c x 23mm and 25mm (207 grams for 700c x 23mm). Available in Black, Blue, Yellow or Red with Gum sidewalls.

Note: Some models of carbon fiber wheels have a sharp or inconsistent edge in the bead seat area, which could cause cuts in the casing of delicate Veloflex clinchers, potentially compromising the tires over time. Because they are not able to inspect every rim for such inconsistencies, Veloflex states that these tires are not compatible with carbon rims.

800 miles on these, no flats, smooth & fast rolling
by AngloTexan
Cycling Enthusiast
Dallas TX

I purchased these back in April 2018 , I've put about 800 miles on them. I ride mainly country roads in North Texas. I went from some cheap Kenda K152' to these, the Kenda's did the job , but as soon as I put these on the bike I could really feel a difference. Cornering is so much better, more grip and less flex in these tires. They just give you more confidence when you ride at speed.

I haven't had any punctures yet. They seem to be wearing better than the Kendas I had previously. If I know I am going to be encountering chip seal roads I normally take them down to the min 100psi rating for comfort, for optimal rolling resistance they should be at 120psi per bicyclerollingresistance.com , they have the Veloflex Corsa listed which is the same tire with a black sidewall.

Which brings me to my only gripe, the natural gum sidewalls look awesome, but get dirty easily. I've used Bleche White white wall tire cleaner with some success though.

I wouldn't buy these tires for commuting, but for casual and weekend riders go for it!

these tires were super grippy from the start and still remain that after 200 miles, somewhat skinny compared to today's standards but most rims these days balloon tires out so its all good, somewhat hard to mount but nothing a bit of elbow grease couldnt fix

Great tire for the money!
by Dwight

This is really a good tire. My ONLY issue is that it is a royal pain to get on my rims. I have carbon Bontrager Aeolus 3 Clinchers. On my other rims that are NOT carbon they go on much better. I bought a tool to help get them on. The tire is great mounting is rough. BUT i don't let that stop me from buying them..

I use these tires on all four of my vintage steel road bikes. they roll and handle great and after a year, I can't say anything bad about them. I have not had a single flat. I average 30 miles a day. I live in the country and the trails around here sometimes have a lot of debris from the surrounding woods especially after storms. I preveously used conti 4000 lls and had trouble with just about every one. namely flats and the long sidewall threads that always came off.

I rode conti's for quite sometime and heard great things about this tire. Got it on a deal of the day and are super happy with them. They seem to roll and roll and roll! Super comfortable. So comfortable that when I ride my other bike with 23mm continental's I have to double check if the tire is low on air or have a flat. Great tire in my opinion! You won't be disappointed. Oh and they also look spectacular on my black inc with gold lettering. Almost a perfect match in color.

Superb Clinchers
by Anonymous

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

Uncontested ride quality with unparalleled handling. Extremely supple, while remaining incredibly responsive, these clinchers are not only a pleasure to look at but also a pleasure to ride. However, this does come at a price they lack the resistance to punctures that you'll find in Gatorskins. A trade off that is worth it in my opinion.

Amazing tires! But... they run narrow and don't have a great lifespan.

Yes, I love these tires. Super fast, plush and grippy. And did I mention how good they look! Kept track of mileage when I installed these and we're looking at 1000miles and it's time to change the rear. In that 1000miles I've climbed 80k feet so that definitely doesn't help. Front is still in perfect condition. If I had to guess... we're looking at 3 rears for 1 front. So far, one flat on the rear. No biggie though, it happens. Tires do run narrow. With the 25s mounted on my DuraAce C24s I took a measurement of 23.6mm.

Prior to running these, I've always run Contis. Conti GP 4000s II 23s most of the year and Conti 4Season 25s in the winter. Hands down, the Veloflex is better. Not that the Contis are in anyway a bad tire, its just that the Veloflex is a truly wonderful ride. Magical if you will. Unicorns, rainbows... all that stuff. So do yourself a favor and grab some of these!

I've tried other tires along the way, but the Veloflex is hard to top. A Fast tire and a soft ride with the psi not too high.

Narrower than marked width
by Flatlander

Been rolling on Vittoria Open Corsa Evo SC 25s for the past year and love them. Since they cannot be got now for a fair price, I thought to pick up one of these Veloflex Masters in a 25 to replace a worn Corsa. Just put it on the rim and I am disappointed to note that this 25mm tire (as marked) is only (barely) 23mm wide, a quite obvious difference from my Corsas, which are quite definitely 25s, as marked and as measured on my rims.

I ride the 25s for a reason, because I like the width of the tire, not because I like the number. Could these have been mismarked at the factory? If all the Veloflex tires are like this, I would not buy them again.

Love the feel of Veloflex clinchers - miles better that the Contis I used to use.

Have had only a couple of punctures on these over the last three years, so generally just use and forget.

And love the gum side-walls! Retro cool, or makes them look like tubs.

Ride about 100 miles a week at 120 psi. These tires are very comfortable on roads with cracks and bumps. Keeping my fingers crossed, after 800 miles no flats. Hard corners are no problem, these tires stick to the payment.

I can't say enough about this tire. Its simply great and even better if you find it at a discounted price like what I paid. The tire is super soft which allows for a supple smooth ride (25mm). I would recommend it for racing only considering that is 320 TPI. But I have been riding them as my training and racing tire (to check longevity) and its doing just fine. Its a great tire all around.

Probably the best tire I've ridden in my life!
by Steve Young

I bought the 700x25 black clinchers. Coming from riding Continental 4000's 700x23, the Veloflex was definitely a huge upgrade. Yes, they are somewhat challenging to mount. Just remember to roll the tires on with your fingers. Don't use tire levers and try to pry them on. Roll it...and it'll go on quit easy.

The ride...wow. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I switched from 23's to 25's, but this tire rolls. And it seems to really accelerate in the corners. On my ride today I averaged about 31 mph on a straights that I usually hit 27 on. The tire rolls.... I'm just floored. Can't wait till they start making all the colors in 700x25's.

I love these tires. I use them for racing only so cannot comment on durability for training (which I suspect is not that good). They are soooo supple and grip well. Paired with latex tubes, they are fantastic tires for crits or other types of racing.

Fantastic ride quality, but delicate
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

Let me start by admitting that I am old enough to remember the ride quality of the Italian-made Vittoria CX tubulars of the yester-years. The ONLY tires that were even better were the ultra-expensive silk tubulars. While these Veloflex Master tires are not quite that good, they are VERY good. I install them with latex inner tubes (Vredestein) and the performance is just about as good as any currently available clincher tires one can get. I have tried Michelin, Challenge, and Continental tires and none of them have the fast feel of these. The Thai made Vittorias get close, but their casing is not as consistently even as the Veloflex tires. There are couple of caveats to these tires, however. First, they are initially very tight fitting, making the first-time installation a test in patience. Second, their exposed sidewalls are delicate.

I absolutely love the way this tire rolls. So smooth in and out of corners. I have more confidence in high speed descending than any other. With a cotton spun tire the life span will be less but I was very pleased to get 1600 miles out of a set.
