Anyone roll these in tubular? They are a pure speed tire and do well with regards to Crr and now I am reading that they have decent durability too. Reviews? I am on Veloflex roubaixs but thinking about the CS for at least the front.

the g+ one?

the standard corsa g+ tub is a really nice ride, very supple carcass, plusher than veloflex carbon/arenberg even at higher pressure

dry grip ok though it felt not quite as good as veloflex, but they seemed to lose grip progressively so more chance to react, i felt wet grip was better

only downside is that they cut like crazy on wet roads, i had so many flats it was ridiculous, i just kept putting tufo sealant in but eventually gave up and binned them

the corsa speed g+ is the lighter/thinner version, should be great on dry/clean roads, but i'd avoid unless you have the luxury of dry rides only (or wet roads devoid of any sharp stuff)

Thanks sungod. I live in the desert so dry riding for me 95%+.
I came across this idea recently on Slowtwitch.com and frankly have been thinking about Crr alot and how tubeless seems to be king now in that area. I have another wheelset that is tubeless and really like it but the ride of tubulars still seems better to me, plus the low weight is great. So I am trying to get better rolling resistance. If i can get 2K miles out of the CS tubulars, that might push me away from the roubaixs.

*edit* I believe that the reference is to the g+ version.

As mentioned above, the G+ is a very nice ride and reasonably durable - I find it takes much less visual abuse than the old CX line.

The Corsa Speed is CRAZY light and a major bummer it only comes in 23mm. I put 120 miles on I'm dry weather and picked up an almost invisible piece of glass that resulted in a puncture. I'd recommend running them with sealant full time and, if you're only hoping for 2k miles, you'll probably be content.
