Excellent tape for all applications, sufficient for one 28" rim.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
The Extreme tape is plastic backed and pressure activated. It is very easy to fit, but difficult to remove from the tub. The tape is excellent for tough applications like track sprints or cyclocross use.
However, Tufo only guarantee proper adhesion of their own tubs, due to the fact that other manufacturers use the old-fashioned method of stitching (which reduces the contact surface) and some also treat the base tape.
Tufo's Tub Tape (see image below)
Tufo have developed special double sided tubular gluing tape for installing on their own tubulars on any tubular rim. This tape is very different from all the similar products on the market. When using the tape, installation of the tubular is fast, safe and very clean. Right after the installation, your wheels are ready for riding, no need to wait for the glue to set.
1. The tape consists of a few layers, every layer has its function with its own specific rim side and tyre side.
2. Active white strip on the tyre side is absorbed into the tubular base tape resulting in a perfect tubular rim bond.
3. Due to the protective plastic film, the tubular is easily installed and centred on the rim. The film is pulled out from underneath the tubular after installation.
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.
