Top Features of the Tufo Tub Tape for Road Wheels
- Road: 19mm x 2m
- Orange packaging
|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.
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.

- But can be re-used a couple of times (when changing tubular on same wheel)
How easy is it to pull tyre off, and how easy to then get tape off?
Does tape pull off in a strip, or come off in little bits?
Thanks for any help ;-)
you are right, for your safety. Very easy to pull tyre and get tape off (in a strip).
Great tubular for this price!
Once your tub is off though, the there is some adhesive residue. I've ridden the best part of 42 years on tubs and take my advice, you're always best to leave the old glue where it is as it give the new stuff something to bite on.
Removing the tyre can be a little difficult ease about 5 cm on one side then turn it over and do the other side until you can pull the tyre off
I've just replaced the tyre on my rim and the old tape almost came off in one go, where it did tear it was still easy to get the remainder off, it didn't break into small sections thankfully!
when you take it off, it's in a strip and very easy to detach but taking off tyre is so hard because it's so strong...
this is a very sticky tape, but you roll the tyre off when its deflated, using the palms of your hands.
The tape often pulls off in one continuous strip through my own use.
TUFO recommend only using this with their tubulars, due to the way they are manufactured.
I have use with conti. many time, it works but please use at your own risk.
Extreme= mountain biking
Normal= road bike
Its always a good idea to remove all of the old glue, this will ensure uniform adhesion of tyre to rim and eradicate the possibility of slight high spots in the tyre. I don't think it has to be spotless but get most of it off for sure.
I've spirits to clean off old glue on rims. Hope this helps.
Off-road version (for 26" wheels) will be too short.
I hope this helps.
