Hi,

Had about a dozen of those (for free).
These pre-date the special liquid crystal Kevlar anti-puncture belt (forgot the name).
I had a flat on every single ride I used them. Granted it was late November and the roads were in very bad condition but I'm sure it won't have happened with either the newer Comps nor the Veloflex Carbons though.

IOW, I wouldn't spend my money on them.

Ciao, ;)

Can't help much with a price recommendation. But I doubt the current Continental Competition tubular tires are much different than the old ones. Different color, yes. Maybe slightly different rubber is used now. But tube and casing are the same new or old tires. Same factory in Germany making the new also made the old tires. So look at the new tires and get a price from them. They go for $103 at BikeTiresDirect.

The only things that remained the same are the casing and the butyl inner tube really. No Vectran, no Black Chili compound.

Ciao, ;)

Just sell them to lo-pro fixed riders. They will make good use out of them. Aging them stretched on the rim is known to improve their ride and flat resistance as well...
