Veloxflex 28 mm Corsa tyres

Anyone seen these for sale? Veloflex has them on their website and there have been a few reviews. I'd like to try a pair one of these days.

But aren’t they made in the same factory in Thailand as the Vittorias?
Still Vittoria Corsa Elites out there as well as Paves in 25 and 27.
Merlin in UK

Yes, and I think they're very similar to the previous version of the Corsa.

No complaints on Corsa G+ for me!

If a Veloflex 25 comes out closer to a 23mm tire (which it does), then a labeled 28 probably measures closer to 25mm.

Anyway, I don't see a [gum/tan]wall option, so not interested.

the 25 veloflex measure 25mm on my 23mm rims... they are just terrible tires.... they ride fine but they suck at staying a tire.

a chacun a son gout I guess (to each his own)
the Veloflex 23 and 25 I have had ride both like buttah--smooth as the proverbial baby's bottom

I have an allergy to all things Spesh, BTW
for so many reasons
