BRR updated their review of the VFR with the following:
BRR wrote:
Veloflex renewed all their tires in Q3 2020 and the Record now makes use of a "natural rubber and silica" compound instead of the "natural rubber exclusive" compound that was used before Q3 2020. The use of silica increases wet grip but it comes at the cost of a 10-15% increase in rolling resistance.

Interesting. Did you guys see any differences on the packaging?

Hoping some other enterprising folks with rollers can confirm that the Crr has gone up significantly... or not.

I'm going to give them a go and see how they workout for me. I do have pretty pristine roads and I had zero flats on my Corsa Speeds. But it might be an expensive experiment that doesn't workout for me.

What has your experience been with them so far, with regard to puncture/flats?

I'm in the down to the chords camp too. I think a lot of people just don't pay attention to where they're riding. I'm pretty sure very few people do the "brush the tire" trick with their fingers when they run through stuff either. I was taught
that early and it is pretty much reflexive at this point.
Can you explain what this trick is?

Bumping this. @Xavier? Considering purchase.

Also buying corsa speeds 2.0 in the meantime...

Not really a trick... just rub your gloved hand on the tire while you are riding.

Only experience I have is mounting the textured version on my new wheel. The baby butt versions are still in the box. Haven't touched a bike all year, but for one memorial ride. I am, however, looking to change that and will be doing some testing here soon hopefully. Although, that all depends on my change of hobbies. So I wouldn't hold your breath. sorry.

Just picked up some of the tubs and clinchers to roll at track nationals. Hopefully I didn't make a bad call here but have you all heard of the best glue for these? I assume the Vittoria Mastik will work but there could be an issue like the conti/vittoria mix that I'm not aware of.

Also, we've just retested the latest batch of Veloflex Records that we've been sent, and there's a ~7.5% increase in Crr compared to previous ones. The tread is a bit different on these. We contacted Veloflex and they confirmed that the tread is now done differently, but the difference is only 1.2w for a pair of wheels at 45kph (0.6w per tyre), meaning that they're still faster than Corsa Speeds.

We'll update our Crr chart online soon to reflect that

*Pista Speed*

*Pista Oro

I don't have the fitness for this half-cocked attempt to warrant/justify the Oro's. Maybe when elite nationals returns to LA and I actually train for it. I still have a speed glued on my 900 disc from a local TT last year so I might just roll that if it's in good shape but I wanted to make sure that I had backups in case I get a flat between IP, TP and points races.
