Arrived: Veloflex Vlaanderen Tubular 700 X 27C

Readers know that I’m a huge fan of Veloflex tubular tires; I’ve ridden probably 60K miles on them in the past 8 years, going through at least 60 tires (I’ve lost count), and I know how each of them performs.

So I was intrigued by the introduction of the new 700 X 27C Veloflex Vlaanderen. I requested some review samples, and Veloflex obliged.

I received two of the new Veloflex Vlaanderen tubular tire today. Wow! I am intrigued by the supple casing and tread pattern and substantial tire volume. By palpating the tire build with my fingers I’d say that the Vlaanderen holds huge potential as about the most comfortable ride in a tubular one might find. My guess is that it will be distinctly more supple and comfortable than the Veloflex Roubaix and possibly less puncture resistant (the rubber seems less thick). But that is speculation until a road test.

Because I’m leaving on a trip I won’t have the Vlaanderen glued up until about mid June 2015, report to follow. But it looks very promising as possibly a tire of choice for anyone looking for an ultra comfy tubular with superb handling and grip. I won’t be able to test it on the rear of my Moots Vamoots RSL because it won’t fit a 700 X 27C, but it’s the front wheel that has me intrigued in terms of exploring the comfort zone.
