1 reviews for Veloflex ProTour Tubular with an average rating of 5/5 points.
Bestimmt Ausgezeichnet! (Most excellent!) Veloflex are extraordinary, and these tubulars more so. In 40 years, I've ridden almost every brand (and every price) of sew-ups, and these tires top them all. My current ProTours (28mm) have ~3,200km/2,000 miles, all on Los Angeles roads (and light gravel), and still have exceptional tread, though the rear is showing wear. There are no bald patches and no visible thread cores, but the crown of the rear is level. At this rate, I expect the front tire to last through one more rear tire.
The sidewalls and tread are supple and responsive, and the traction's reliable and reassuring, even on wet surfaces. I weigh ~75kg/170lbs, inflate the tires to ~6.5b/100psi, and they're comfortable, but still quite fast.
As for flats, I've only had one small puncture in the front and one in the rear. That's luck, certainly, but the quality and characteristics of these tires have helped. Both flats were easily fixed with about 15ml/1tbsp of latex each.
I mount on alloy rims with Tufo tape (19mm, also highly recommended), and have no worries/issues with the tire seating properly and staying absolutely true on the rim. I prefer the gumwalls, which means cleaning with a nail brush and warm water once or twice a month.
