i rode contis for a year because of the speed reports, then i got on other tires and don't look back.
Your right. I have loved the ride of Veloflex but switched to Contis. They don’t ride as well but they wear really well for a fast tire and at 80psi in a 25 they sure don’t ride bad.

I will try these.

My favorite road tires by far! Even the 25's are super plush.

I'll have to disagree. I weigh 135lbs and really like the feel of 28mm GP4KS tires, run at 75psi. I run Challenge and Compass tires on other bikes, so it's not like I'm comparing them to Gatorskins.

That is my experience too. I have 45 pounds on you and I run them at 75F/85R today with our currently horrible roady conditions and they are sublime. My poor riding buddy is still running tires at 120

Trying the Vittoria Corsa G+ 28 clincher as an alternative to Compass 28 ELs.

The Compass tires still have my vote for comfort by a narrow margin. Though the Corsa 28s are mighty nice and feel as fast. With the the heavily discounted price, the Corsas make a lot of sense.

I wonder if the Vittoria tires are more puncture resistant with all that graphene goodness as compared to the Compass tire.

Just picked up a pair of 25's in tan, with $10off thanks to dustyrider! Big thanks to him for the coupon, and cheers to all here for the deal hunting efforts.

edit: And just got an email from ActiveJunky re: $8.90 cashback! What a deal!

to get $10 you have to get an invite link from someone that is already a member.You can PM dusty and get a link or you can use my link on page 1.

what happens is when anyone that is a member refers someone else, they get $10 and you also get $10. No one in this site should not be a member of active junky. This year alone I have got about $130 cashback, its fantastic. Pretty much backcountry.com is always at between 6% and 12% cashback.

I want to thank the couple of people that signed through my link

What is the narrowest rim that the 28mm would work on? Currently I am running the 25mm vittoria open corsa sc which have been discontinued. They already stick out from the rim. Wondering if these 28mm would look ridiculous. Oh, the rims are the old Atlanta 96 rim, which I think are 19mm outside dimensions. Thanks!

I think they would work just fine.


My 28s arrived yesterday. Gotta love free 2 day shipping.
I don't have my calipers on me but I know the tires that were on the bike measured 27mm (paves) and these are a tiny bit bigger so I would say they are probably 28/29mm.

Exactly right. Mine arrived yesterday and I mounted them up last night. Compared to the 27mm Open Paves they replaced, these were just about 1mm bigger judging by the clearance at the brakes before and after. This is on a Pacenti SL23 v2 rim.

I have to say, these look and feel extremely nice and mounted up 10000000x easier than the Schwalbe S-Ones I mounted on the same rims the other day. I guess that is another benefit of those plush sidewalls. Hopefully they hold up ok.
