Description

The Tufo Hi-Composite Carbon Road Tyre features composite puncture proof ply. The composite carbon tread compound is made possible due to the thinner tread and the tyre still maintains high mileage. Thinner tread also lowers rolling resistance while the tyre is maintaining ideal shock absorption properties and high puncture resistance.

When inflated, the tubular clincher, in the same way as a tubular, is pressed towards the rim. Simultaneously, the bead blocks of the profiled rubber band spread out embedding on the rim shoulders and eliminating any rotation of the tubular clincher against the rim as well as possibility of the tubular clincher unseating.

The carcass consists of two layers of rubber cord composite with reverse bearing cord orientation in each layer, joined with natural rubber matrix strengthened with silica. The carcass TPI varies from 60 to 210 for different tyre models.

The bottom profiled bead band does not function only as a filling in the area between the rim and the tubular clincher but also plays an active role. As the tubular clincher is inflated, the band sides literally “bite” into the rim shoulders.

Key Features:

  • Puncture proof ply - Made of rubber cord composite with the cord angle very close to the direction of the tyre circumference, also decreases rolling resistance and increases power transfer
  • Activated silica tread compound
  • The inside airtight layer is made of a special butyl-rubber compound. Very low air permeability of this layer means long intervals between tyre inflations. Solid bond between the airtight layer and the tyre carcass means lower rolling resistance.
  • The bead profile reinforcement of tubular clincher tyres provides easy tyre installation and prevents the tyre from unseating in extreme situations.
  • The bead profile itself copies the shape of the rim and after inflation provides a perfect joint between them. Also protects the rim lips from damage.

What a great product. I've been riding Tufo tires for at least 10 years now and have not been disappointed with any of their tires. I have been looking for this particular model for a few years now and have just found them on ProBikeKit.com. I just recently put these on so I haven't logged that many miles on them yet. What impresses me most about Tufo is I get the smooth ride of a tubular ("perceived" ride. I haven't ever ride a real tubular wheel set up) without having to purchase a whole new wheel (I can't afford them.) No more pinch flats, easy installation and very little air pressure difference for a few days, so if I'm rushed to get a ride in I can be confident I'm not riding on a half inflated tire like a regular clincher. I'm looking forward to seeing how many miles I can get on these. I only do about 2300 miles per year but have worn some models out in that time
