The Domestique is Kenda's new entry-level tubular, offering a superior ride quality at an approachable price. Light enough for racing and tough enough for training with a supple 220 tpi casing plus an Iron Cloak Belt puncture protection layer under the tread. The tread has a long wearing rubber compound that handles predictably even in wet weather. Butyl inner tube with a removable valve core and smooth presta valve. Handmade construction. Size 700c x 22mm (622mm ISO). 290 grams.

Weight: 290 grams

Excellent tire for the price

As tubular tires go, these are extremely easy to mount and are reasonably (if not perfectly) round. I mounted them with tape, was completely easy, I didn't need to stretch them, they went on easily right out of the box. On my wheels mounted, despite being stated as 22mm, they measure about 24.5 mm in width. They weigh about 290 grams. I haven't put many miles on them yet so I can't comment on the wear/durability but for the price, if you get a cut you can chuck them. The ride is certainly good and they are stable in the wet. No matter what, I suggest that you use Orange Seal from the get go (a 4oz bottle of tire sealant for two tires). That has worked well for me in many tubular tires for me (even with extreme cuts). Much better that Stan's, Cafe Latex, Slime, Vittoria Pit Stop etc. In summary, the more expensive tires may be a tick better (but very little) and if run over a glass shard and trash them you wont be crying over the loss )

1000 miles and going strong

I wanted to do a follow up on my first review of these tubulars. I initially got two of these, and I admit being initally skeptical, but found that they are easy to mount and really durable. So durable, that after 500 miles on the pair, I realized that these are indeed a steal and bought another pair (though I don't now how long I'll have to go before needing using them).

True, they are a bit heavier that some other tubulars I've used but they ride well and are bullet proof. Another nice point is that most tubulars at this price range do not have removable valve core but the Kenda's do. Every other tubular I have used has accumulated many serious cuts when the 1000 mile mark rolls along, but not the Kenda's. I hope that BTD will offer more Kenda tires to their line up.

Buy them before the price goes up.

Very nice tubular at a reasonable price

These tubular tires were easy to mount and centered up nicely when a small amount of air was applied. The performance is excellent especially given the price. They roll smoothly, and cornering is confidence inspiring an overall nice tire

As far as cheap tubies go, these are the choice.

As someone who is rather new to tubulars, I am impressed with these tires, they grip well, and seem to be wearing well so far (almost 1k miles of training and racing crits and RRs). I did get one puncture during a rainy race, though I think that piece of wet glass would have punctured most tires... On the up side, they are rather easy to repair!

Good first time tubular tire but not that great

I bought a set as my first tubulars. They were not easy to align for some reason. It might have been the shape of the rim channel though, but they wanted to flop to one side or the other. They seem like a great set to practice installing, but there's nothing special about how they feel to ride. If you're looking for the hyped ride quality of a tubular you probably have to get a more expensive tire. Note however that they work fine. I've raced on them several times with no complaints. Mounted with Tufo Tape. They got cut up a little on a couple of rough crits, but were easy to repair with super glue.

Price is definitely right, but durability not what I expected.

Price is definitely right, but durability not what I expected or hoped for. I bought cuz this is my first time to glue tubulars myself and didn't want to screw up $$ tires. That went fine with tape and tires beautiful on bike, but I've had two flats (fr and rear) in last 200mi that I've had to save with tire sealant. Overall, I'd say okay for training, but may want something a little more durable when it counts, even if more $$.

Very well made tubular at this price point.

These are without a doubt the best sub-$40 tubulars I have come across.

All that I have purchased are extremely well-made, and install straight and

true with absolutely no out-of-roundness noticed. Nice and grippy for a slick,

reminds me of the supercomp HD clinchers that I rode for a while in the mid 90's.

I use them for training, but they would probably race quite well.
