TBH my Zipp Tangente Speed RT25 tubeless feel amazing at lower to medium pressures. They're manufactured by Hutchinson also, along with the new Mavic tubeless. My only complaint about Hutchinson manufactured tires in general is their tread longevity.

my 0.02c worth:

Just fitted a set of 28mm Velo's (standards) to the SLR 2018 Emonda. 17C wheels. measures 29mm wide, BUT 27mm tall. So these are not as wide as the GP4000SII 28mm, which come to 31mm, but are a touch taller. Something to think about. I am using R8000 direct mount calipers and there's heaps of room. The GP4K28's rubbed on the calipers before hitting the brake blocks.

I am very, very impressed with the road holding, cornering and smoothness of the tyre. These beat the GP4000SII for cornering stability, feedback and handling due to their shape when installed and braking grip is far superior.

So to anyone considering these in 25 or 28mm for a fast road or racing tyre, don't hesitate. give them a go. Very happy. I'll consider a set of 4S for the training wheelset.

Thanks for the review and comparison to the GP 4000 S II, it's on my wishlist for the year.

I’ve ridden on the Velo 4S 28c’s. Soft and supple with excellent grip. Could only do 1 ride though due to caliper rub as they are a tad too tall for my frame.

Again "opinion" instead of experience.... Did you rode them, had in hand at least ? No ? So stop trolling.
