These tyres sit neatly on the rim, but have the functionality of a tubular tyre therefore giving outstanding rolling performance and are lightweight. They also offer excellent puncture resistance and 240TPI. Great tyre for riding and training on.
|Puncture Protection:||Protective Belt|
|Use:||Road and training|
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
Thinner tread also lowers rolling resistance while the tyre is maintaining ideal shock absorption properties and high puncture resistance.
How Does the Tubular Clincher Tyre Work?
When inflated, the tubular clincher (see image below), in the same way as a tubular, is pressed towards the rim. Simultaneously, the bead blocks of the profiled rubber band spread out embedding on the rim shoulders and eliminating any rotation of the tubular clincher against the rim as well as the possibility of the tubular clincher unseating. As the tubular clincher is inflated, the band side literally 'bite' into the rim shoulders.
Benefits of Tufo's tubular clincher tyres: high inflation pressures - up to 15 bars (220 psi) without any damage to the rim walls, even in a case when the rim manufacturer specifies lower inflation pressures (the pressure is contained inside the tubular clincher and does not affect the rim wall), same riding quality as with tubular tyres, safe handling in case of punctures (the stability of a rider is not affected), the tubular clincher can be ridden when flat, and the fastest and easiest installation and dismantling without any tools.
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
Tufo was founded in 1991, based on more than 25 years of experience in rubber tyre industry and was founded by Mr Miloslav Klabal. The basic philosophy of the company is specialisation in the development and production of tubular tyres – the best option for cycling. From the very beginning Tufo has worked hand-hand with many world champions and elite riders from all cycling disciplines. This cooperation makes the transition of theoretical knowledge from development and research into new products much easier. The top priority from Tufo is the quality of their products, therefore all the production is under direct and everyday control in the Tufo plant in the Czech republic. Most of the production is accomplished by skilled handwork making it possible to concentrate on details which is very important to achieving maximum quality.
