This Tufo Elite Ride 23 Tubular Tyre is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
This tyre model provides a comfortable, smooth and fast ride with a minimum of vibrations even in the most demanding conditions of road cycling.
|Puncture Protection:||Protective Belt|
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
The wide tyre tread overlapping the sidewall and the puncture proof ply in the middle of the tread effectively decrease the possibility of flats.
The special system of grooves in the centre and the double diamond tread pattern on the tyre shoulders expel water from the road and give this tyre excellent adhesion on wet or dry surfaces.
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.
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.
