    fwiw i tried the corsa g+ tubs

    lovely ride, absolute grip ok but didn't seem quite as good as veloflex, though i think g+ had better grip in the wet

    downside was the g+ compound (at least on the corsa) cuts like crazy on wet roads, even with sealant in they were puncturing so often i gave up and binned them

    small sample size, but i won't be getting any more of them, not impressed by g+ at all
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    I know! Those 2W at 100psi will just ruin a ride!!!


    Get a grip.

    There are people that have to put in 6 months of solid training to gain 2 watts.

    Agreed dont write off what sounds like a tiny gain, I switched out my rubino pros for Michelin pro4 endurance v2 which claim about 4w difference, i can tell the difference when I'm on a club ride, just hoping I'll be able to tell the difference when i put the schwable pro ones on.

    Marginal gains ;-)
