Hi,

Rumour and maybe it's just that, has it that Veloflex is going to change the width of the tyres to accomodate the current fad of wider is better tendency.

Anyone has anything definite to either confirm or reject this?

Ciao, ;)

I hope so too.

With apologies in advance for the thread hijack: In the meantime, or in case they don't, does anyone know of a similarly fast (i.e. supple and reasonably light) clincher that's wider than 23mm?

I'm thinking something like a Veloflex MAster/Corsa, Conti Supersonic or Michelin Pro Light.

All I can find is the 25mm Vittoria Corsa Evo CX.

Hi,

Oh dear, my italian sucks.... :mrgreen:

Micky, do you mind asking the guys at Veloflex what's in the pipelines for 2012 so we can brace ourselves?

The e-mail addy is info@veloflex.it.

Grazie mille, (and that's where my italian ends)

Ciao, ;)

+1. Slightly pricey, but mine's been going since May. My rear tire's about one month past replacement date: I'm starting to flat more than I should. Front is fine. Nice round profile and a very good weight: supple, nice handling tires.

Nice, although I'm pretty happy with the size of the 24mm of the Roubaix. Would opt for the 23mm over the current 22mm Carbon. As long as they still mate with my Boras l'll be a happy man. D'oh... Now that I've said that we'll probably hear that Campy is widening their rims too.

Last time I visited their company and spoke to the son of the owner was probably September but never thought to ask if they had any news.

Anyway email just sent!

Micky, please keep us posted with your findings, also as to when rollout ( :lol: ) of the new widths is expected!

Been using the Vittoria Open Corsa EVO CX II in 700x25 beginning of summer.

Three thumbs up. Much better than my mixing up Italo-Spagnolo cocktail lingo....

Ciao, ;)
