    how much better are the Cubus Flexus than the normal Flexus?

    Woops. Cubus Flexus vs. normal Cubus.

    Double the price, double the performance? Please advise.

    Better casing, lighter weight. Supposedly different rubber. I have the Flexus Primus as I primarily race in dry hardpack conditions, they have been fantastic tires so far.

    I have a set of the normal Cubus and I wouldn't pay up for the Flexus version. At that money I would go FMB/Dugast. The regular Cubus weighs the same as a Grifo so they are reasonably light. The nice thing about th Tufo's is that they are bomb/flat proof so you can run them at low, low pressure without fear of flatting.

    the flexus

    models are much more supple and yield a more compliant ride
    the lower end models are durable as hell
    I train, beat ride on these models

    cool guys. thanks for the info.

    I'm thinking I'll put the non-flexus cubus on my B wheels/training wheels and I'll put the Vittoria Cross Evo XM on the nicer race wheels (Wiggle has that nice price on those).

    Sound like a good setup for a mix of all conditions from dry/sharp to mud bog?

    i train on the regular cubus with stans sealant in them and boy do they take a beating. They are neither light nor very supple, but are pretty affordable and robust.

    is leaning more toward the mud side of the equation
    with that said I rode some Tues Eve in dry/loose to Sandy /Pack with loose talc on top and they did pretty well
