Veloflex Criterium / Carbon Tubular Tire

Veloflex Criterium 700 X 23C tubular tire

See the official Veloflex web site for the full range of tires.

The Veloflex Criterium is a little wider and significantly heavier (40g) than the Sprinter, but lighter than the Roubaix.

The Criterium has a 320 TPI casing compared to a 350 TPI casing for the Sprinter, so in theory it should ride a little more stiffly but be be slightly more puncture resistant. Not that a 320 TPI casing is non-supple.

The Criterium has a gum-colored sidewall, but the Carbon is the same tire with a black sidewall, so take your pick.

See pricing at Amazon.

Good choice for the rear wheel

The Sprinter is my default tire of choice for the rear wheel, offering substantial extra tire life over the Record, provided one avoids punctures. The Criterium could also fill that role with somewhat longer service life.
