Following. Wow these are light. If the gum sidewalls look like that irl a lot of people here will be happy.

Send me an email when you get them in stock please. They look like they are only available through veloflex directly as of now. Not surprising as they haven't even updated their social media.

err veloflex corsas (non-tlr) have been out forever. corsa is just Italian for "race" so it would be kinda weird trademark that.

not just that, have a look at their tub section.....most tyres are gone including their recent Service Course. There is now a new proTour and proTour Race, but seems inferior to the recent service course (their little chart shows same all aspect but slightly lower performance), any ideas? Covid-19 impact may be?
Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:

If anything, it looks like they have basically simplified their product lineup - there are now 2 options of all their tires - "training" and "racing" with 23/25/28mm variants for tubs, 23/25/28 for clinchers and 25/28 for tubeless, with 320TPI being the training flavour while 350TPI is the racing one.

So goodbye to Carbons, Extremes, Sprinters, Arenbergs, Vlaanderens by their names.

Omg. This. Might. Be. It.
Cotton casing (corespun tech so same as vittoria corsa) 350tpi. 220g (!!). I have been waiting for a cotton casing light tubeless and this might just get me of latex tube and cotton clincher if it works as well as advertised. The spec hit all the right spot.

If Veloflex Record crr is anything to go by, this will definitely be best-in-class.

Am aware of Corsa meaning; but admit complete ignorance to their previous clincher offerings as I only ever used their tubs

Can't wait to get my hands to a set of these. Look very promising and I was a fan of their clinchers and tubs.
