Interesting point of view. With your experience on both is it just the general puncture protection that you found better on the Competitions? It looks like they are only 180 TPI so ride feel surely can't be as good as the Veloflex at 320 TPI?garjo wrote: ↑Thu May 23, 2019 4:43 pmThis wheelset looks awesome, it has the right rim height for your frame.
About tubulars I can say Veloflex are good but Continental (Competition, their best model) are better, then managing tubulars is pretty easy because their punctures can be fixed with latex always running inside them, and with some attack flexgel + little pieces of american tape you will go to put on the tread in the point of puncture, it takes like 3 minutes to fix it.
Currently I ride Challenge "Open Tubulars" on my other bike - 300TPI I think. They were a vast improvement over other clincher tyres i've tried and the Veloflex look very, very similar. Wouldn't be suprised if they all came out of the same factory. In fact, I probably would have gone Challenge again as their actual Tubulars are meant to be brilliant as well, but they tend to be a lot heavier than Veloflex and others. Claimed weights for Challenge tyres always seem to be about 10-15% under actual.
