5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

With up to 440 TPI, Tufo tires offer the light road feel of a tubular but the ease of mounting a clincher. As the tubular/clincher is inflated the rubber bead engages the rim "shoulders" to seat the tire securely. 65 PSI, 700x30, 375g. Cross version

Strengths:    WAY light, way fast.
Glues up very nicely.. wide, rough base tape, even tread
It can be bottomed out (you feel the rim hit the obstacle through the tire) with no problems.

Weaknesses:    The sidewalls are on the thin side. Watch those rocks and curbs!
Wears quickly, but not more than other similar offerings from other companies
Kind of high priced, but you get what you pay for, a fast racing tire that wears fast.

Bottom Line:   
Great RACING tire for all around conditions. Easy gluing, more durable than most cross tubulars. I've run these as low as 30 psi and have had very good results.
