Very good performance & value.....impressed....

I wanted tubular performance but only have 1 set of Tubular Carbon rims, but several aluminum rims. I mounted these Tufo S33's on my beloved Mavic Kyserium Elites, and am impressed at the solid ride & handling. It's firm, but not buzzy. (well, except on extremely rough pavement, true of any high pressure 700c road tire) And the 175 psi rating attests to it's toughness.

I'm 195, and I've run em at 160 psi, and they are super efficient, just floating across the tarmac. I also run about 2 oz 60ml of Stans sealant in them as a flat preventative measure, and so far, no flats. I expect they will work similar to a Hutchinson Road Tubeless tire I tested last year (which sealed many small pinprick punctures, but had 'bead seating issues' that made me sour on them), but perhaps this arrangement is better as the sealant is totally contained within the tubeless casing, and this should (still testing to find out....) result in the sealant remaining liquid & effective for longer than the 3 months on the Hutchinson road tubeless.

The only downside was it was initially a bit tough to mount. But I did manage to mount the 2nd tire in 13 the time, so that shows how it's just a bit of a 'learning process'. Once you get the hang of snapping the bead hook portion on the rim bead, no problem. One tip inflate the tire to 120 psi & let sit overnight, then deflate to 5-10 psi & mounting will be MUCH easier ! I do love the peace of mind of knowing flats are highly unlikely now.

Just to be sure if I get a larger cut than the installed sealant can handle, I carry another 2 oz bottle of Stans sealant, super glue to heal the cut externally, a valve core wrench & an inflator. I learned of this method from some blog posts & this also can work or regular tubular tires, of course.

I also appreciate the very high performance - I'd equate their road feel & efficiency to a Conti GP 4000 (my favorite clincher), but they seem to be even tougher constructed. Only in my first 1000 miles & no discernable wear yet. Bravo Tufo......I'm buying a set for my Daughter who races for Christmas.

Thanks for the good deal BTD !

Love these tires

Used them 10 years ago. Tried again after they went on sale and now with Stan's. Run at 150 psi and the ride isn't too harsh but man do these things roll! Once up to speed they fly

Tufo's are the best bicycle tire your money can buy !

If you have not tried Tufo tires before you will be blown away at the quality, weight specs,and free speed you will gain. I have raced on just about every wheel and tire combination out there. You can take your training wheel set and be the fastest person in the event.

The install for the tubuler clincher is somewhat tricky and it helps to have a warm tire.Once on, they are true running and very smooth with a high PSI and low rolling resistance.

I love these tires

Make no mistake, these are a challenge to mount. But worth it. I commute to my downtown office on a track style fixie (with brakes)and I fill these to 165 lbs. Initially, I thought the high pressure might be a bit much but these tires grab the pavement and won't let go. If I hit a pothole I'm not concerned with getting a pinch flat. They feel lighter than a standard tire and tube and make for a really fun commute.

Awesome Tires

I have ridden Tufo tubular clinchers for at least 5 years. They are a perfect compromise between traditional tubulars and clinchers. I think they offer a superior ride to clinchers without the hassle of gluing tubulars to the rims.

I use about an ounce of Stan's sealant in each tire and can't even guess how many flats that has prevented. Tufo does have a sealant but I have found it to be unreliable. It seems to become watery after a while and it will loose it's sealing ability. Stan's has been a good alternative.

The only other thing to mention is it does take a little practice to get used to how to install a tire. With a bit of practice you will get the hang of it. The few times I do get flats I can be back riding in about 5 minutes with a spare. The key is to use a spare that you have ridden on and has already been stretched so it is an easier installation.

I honestly don't understand why these tires are not more popular.

Great tire for clincher

Very high mileage tire. Very reliable, high performance.. Just like the S33. Ultimately, lighter than any of the other clinchers since you have neither tube nor rim strip. Prolly 120 gr. for those.

These tires are awesome!

I've got about 700-800 on these tires and they are still riding good. I like that you can pump them up to 175 psi. I use these tires on all of my bikes.

best ride ever

I was introduced to Tufo over a year ago. The ride is smooth, the tires durable. I enjoy not having to take tubes in my pack, just CO2 cartridges. I have never had a mechanical issue with these tires and I average 105 miles / week.

Tubular Clincher ?

been riding since the mid 70s.always on clinchers.decided to see what all the hype was about tubular clinchers.i'am 6'2 180lbs-185lbs.lot of chip seal and smooth,no dirt or gravel.2000-3000 miles a year.616.79 miles on these tires.when I bought these tires they were less expensive(they might have been on sale I don't remember)now they are more expensive.i started at 110 psi all the way to 150psi,at 5 pound increments.110 psi was like it was flat.at 120psi it was much better,better ride on all surfaces.120psi to 130psi was about the same.130psi to 140psi it getting to be a rough ride on the chip seal.at 150psi it was a nice ride on the smooth stuff.but on the chip seal it was bone jarring.i keep them at 120psi now.616.79 miles on them now.first tire i got on in a couple minutes second one took almost half hour(that had to be my fault)rear tire is starting to square off

and the tread is wearing.i can get 700- 800 miles on rear clinchers before it starts to square off.they don't get nicked up as bad as clinchers.they look a lot better at 600 miles than others.i don't see any big difference than clinchers.

Great tires and great service

If you've never ridden with Tufo Tubular Clincher tires, now is the time to start. Once you get the hang of putting them on you will be very satisfied.

They are very robust (last a long time), stay on your wheel in the event of a high speed blowout. I can attest to this as I had a blow out on a mountain descent at high speed and the tire stayed on the rim. That plus a no tools needed to put them on a wheel make them a great addition to your long distance riding.

long term review of TUFO S 33

I rode tubulars for almost 30 yrs and enjoyed the upside..fast and smooth, but the downside of hard to mount and fragile. I purchased TUFOs 3yrs ago because the promise of a lighter system of tire ...single tire and tube weighed more than Tufo tire. And the cost was 25% less.

The tires are moderately difficult to put on the and have to be hand stretched over a period of time. It take persistence and a strong set of hands or at least an extra hand. Like a tubular you have to spend sometime making sure the bead is set and tire aligned.

These tires do not come alive till you start running them at 150-175 psi. Below 140 psi they feel like a clincher. Hit 160 psi and oh boy they take off. Silky and corner with security and speed. Old tubular roll off .....never a thought or problem. Punctures...I ride city, urban and country roads and run over glass and road debris all the time...never a problem..I have not used the TUFO sealant but probably should.

Minor issue... the inner stem on the valve stem will come unscrewed if you use a presta valve adapter as I do because I choose the reg stem length and my presta valve pump head tends to blow off at about 150 psi. I use the adapter so I can use the schrader valve head to pump to 170-180 psi. just be gentle when re-tighten the inner valve.

I let my riding partners use my old set of tires to try them out and all it takes is a quick 50 miles to convince them to buy.

If you are considering TUFOs because of weigh, then thats fine, but crank em to 160 psi and have a faster and tighter ride. Just because they are at 160 psi does not mean they are bone jarring. Think supple and smooth.

It's all in the wheels and frame...everything else is just gravy.

Lewis.....6'2 200 lbs..18-20 avg. from 62 yr old been riding since I was 5.

I Love these tires

I have been riding these tires for close to 5 years now and absolutely love them. I cannot understand why Tufo hasn't established a much larger market. The tubular clincher gives you a similar feel and ride to a glue on tire with-out the gluing hassle.

I have tried switching back to traditional clincher tires and just couldn't do it. The ride on the Tufo's is so much better.

The only issue I have had with Tufo is occasionally I will get a tube of sealant that just doesn't work. I recently switched from the Tufo sealant to Stan's and that seems to have done the trick.

I hate flats and even more fixing sewups!

Thirty years ago I rode on sewups. Anyone who has ridden on sew ups, you know they cant be beat for performance. There fairly easy to replace on the road, but fixing, what a pain! So now Ive gone to Tubular Clincher. I feel the best made are the Tufo brand. Minimizing flats on the road and half way decent road performance (115-175psi). Easy to fix on small punchers on the rode with Tufo tire sealant.

Incredibly high performaning tire

I have been using this brand and model tire for three years. I ride two hundred to three hundred miles a week and have only had four flats during this time. Flats are easy to repair with Tufo's tire sealant. Even though the industry is going to wider tires, The 21 mm tire with 145 PSI performs exceptionally even while descending 28 miles from the top of Mt. Lemmon. Given the price, performance and longevity of this tire, it's an outstanding value.

First time use of tubular clincher for clydesdale rider- Impressed and yet disappointed

I was interested in a higher PSI rated tire for recreationaltraining use and so I decided to try the C S33 tubular clincher for a start. The price was comparable to any other tire I would purchase. I weigh 230 lb and rode the tire at 150PSI for approx 300 miles. EXCELLENT ride! I didn't have a pancake of a tire as I normally would in a 120 max PSI tire. Felt fast! And was mildly amused to carry the small sealant bottle for potential flats compared to a spare tube and levers. Here's the problem. I got a small puncture flat with a tiny piece of glass. I used the Tufo tire sealant. It got me home the remaining 25 miles or so. The stuff never dries inside of the tire. I am still getting drips of the solution out of the hole to this day (3 days later) when I try to inflate the tire back to 150 PSI. The tire will not hold the high pressure now. (And I don't want to ride it at a lower PSI... That defeats the whole purpose of buying these tires.) Unless I can repair the hole, this Tufo is trash, and that's the risk you take with this product is higher PSI is your aim. And that is way the overall rating is low. So a great tire for a big guy until you get a flat.

Nice ride.

I came across these while looking for a 700x21 clincher for the tight fit on the rear wheel of my TT bike.

Yes they are heavier than a regular clincher but when you factor in the tube and rim tape you don't need they work out lighter.

They mount up a little differently but the instructions are very clear and there are even videos available on-line if you need more help.

I had to bunny hop an under-construction manhole cover on a 47 mph downhill the other day and these tires held up great.
