About Road Race Tubular Tyres
These tubular tyres are designed for tubular rims, these are glued on using tubular cement or tubular tape. They are the preferred choice for serious riders and professionals when all that matters is performance. A tubular is a sealed unit with an inner tube sewn into the tyres casing, this means the tubular is perfectly round in profile and offers a better feel when cornering. Vittoria have introduced open tubulars which are the same design as their tubular tyres but with a bead for use on a clincher rim, these will offer the closest feel of a tubular but the ease of repair associated with a clincher. Sizing is subtly different to clincher wheels and can be a bit confusing as most manufacturers still quote the old imperial sizes. However there are only 2 real sizes: 26" is the same as 650c, then 27", 28" and 700c are all the same size. We spotted this useful article on Bike Radar which explains briefly the benefits and how to fit tubular tyres.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Also do these have a removable core so you can use sealent?
Im looking for a 700c x 25 ish tub, and the Conti Giro and Sprinter tubs are listed as size 28x22. Please can this sizing be explained.
I hope this helps.
NOTE: for a 100 section rim, the Topeak extender won't be enough. Although often advertised as 90mm, it is actually only 70mm !!
The rims are what I used to call 27" sprint rims, all the tubular tires I have are useful only as spares.
Will the Continental Giro tires fit my rims?
In other words, are the Continental Giro tires, the same size as the old Hutchinson, etc tires?
