Tufo Special Diamond Tires - Tubular

5/5 (2 Reviews)


Product Description

Diamond tread pattern provides excellent riding properties and very good transfer of power on dry and sandy surfaces and on compacted snow. 122 TPI in the side wall and 183 TPI underneath the tread. The tire carcass is very flexible and the tire copies the terrain exactly. Excellent riding properties are enhanced with activated silica in the red tire tread compound, improving traction and lowering rolling resistance. Ease of riding is assured by low weight of this tire.

Strengths:    Lightness for size of tyre,strength, ease of fitting, possibly ease of repair,smoothness of ride,very easy to centre on the rim.

Weaknesses:    Garish colours, Tufo should make a tyre about 25mm wide.

Bottom Line:   
Well made, astrong and light for the width. Give a smooth ride and easy to fit. I use the taped on version.Forget about messy glue, you could fit these while wearing your best suit. Iwish Icould comment on the sealant but I haven't punctured one yet.

Strengths:    Terrific tyres for sealed surfaces and gravel. Give a comfortable and safe ride also in wet conditions. Superb quality, always round and tight. Same tyre available for both clincher and tubular rims. Modestly priced. Tubular clincher is an excellent opportunity for novices wanting to try the 'real' pushbike tyres. Mounting of tubular clinchers is a breeze

Weaknesses:    Repair (Sealant may clog valve core and render it unsuable). Limited availability (Australia)

Bottom Line:   
Superior tyres for ANY rim. No one needs to put up with sluggish and rough clinchers any longer.
