Tufo's lightest road racing, triathlon and time trial tires, puncture proof ply, 440 tpi casing, smooth lentil shaped crown, herringbone shoulders, extremely light and fast tire.

To make the tire weight of tubular clinchers more understandable, Tufo started to use TEW marking (tire equivalent weight). For instance, C ELITE JET < 160g TEW means the tire weight is equivalent to open clincher tire of 160g. 700x20 in all black or red/black or 650x20 in all black. 230 grams. 145-220 psi.

The valves stems on these tires are approximately 32mm. They can be extended using a Tufo Valve Extender.

NOTE: THESE ARE TUBULAR CLINCHER TIRES FOR CLINCHER RIMS ONLY AND NOT REGULAR TUBULAR TIRES - PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT VERSION CHOSEN BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER.

These Tirers are for RACING, not 200-300 mile workouts DUHHHH!!

As stated, these tires are for RACING, not training, not toodling, not sip-n-spins, not hill assaults, not group rides....RACING. Put them on for racing, VERY fast, quick to change...did I mention fast? Again, put them on for racing, take them off AFTER racing (are you starting to understand what these are for?) So, if you ponied up big money to look cool, ride fast, brag about your gear, you will... then you will also FLAT often, and waste money often....dont bitch about how fragile they are when you are not using them for the intended purpose. Want to race fast -these are your babies- worth every penny. I am a half and full distance Triathlete, flats are always a concern. Do they flat? EVERY tire flats, these are very quick and easy, not tubes to pinch, no tubulars to glue, rip it off, stick it on, blow it up, get the hell back into the race! It is how changing a tire in competition SHOULD be. Long story short- if you are racing, must haves, if you are not, GET ANOTHER TIRE, for these are for RACING only.

Super simple tire to install and no more tubes.

I recently heard about tufo clincher tubulars so I tried them. I like that I don't have to mess with tubes anymore. I bought one of the light weight tires as a spare since it folds a little smaller than the elite ride 23. Best part is there's no glue to mess with. LOVE THEM.

Very fast tire, but flats too easy

Really fast tire, I love that about them, but flat way too easy. I rarely get more than 2-300 miles before a blow out or puncture. Also, these tires have gone from $79 to $99 in two years, so going through 4-6 tires in the summer season is just too pricey. If you want a really fast tire and don't mind spending $400-$600 per summer season, then it would be hard to beat this tire.

Misleading reviews

The reviews on this tire are misleading, I've been riding them for 4 years. I've ridden for 40 years, many of them on sewups, in fact I still ride on sewups a lot. These elite jets are the finest and fastest tires I have ever experienced. No they will not last forever and if your not used to running sew ups your going to puncture more, but for the lowest rolling resistance on the planet, lower than any sew up at any weight, these tires reinvent the bicycle. I don't see how they can do this on a clincher rim. I suspect I'm not the only guy who has discovered these treasures.

All out race tires. Not for bad roads.

These tires are made for speed. The casing is extremely supple and lightweight. My average time trial speed is noticeably faster with these having switched from standard clinchers Pro3 Race and Open Corsa Evo CX. But they are a bit fragile. If your course has glass or sharp rocks, I'd find another tire.
