Seriously fast rubber that makes you fly.
At first, I was hesitant to use Tufo tires because of the bad reputation they have on the Internet (being slow, giving harsh ride etc.). However, after a season on Continental Competition tubulars, I was looking for something that would result in a more comfy ride. The Competitions were not perfectly round and no matter how I tried to seat them, they always produced a bumpy ride. I ran the Competitions at 105 PSI and this pressure (72 kg rider) seemed to be the best compromise between comfort and speed. Nevertheles, at the end of August I was just fed up with the bumps and went for Tufos as they offer a seamless casing. The difference was apparent at first. The bumps disappeared. However, the tires were slow (at 120 PSI). As riding the Competitions was deadly when I once tried to ride them pumped at 130 (no grip while cornering, very harsh ride) I was not sure if it was a good idea to try a higher pressure. But I did try and what a transformation! I ride the Tufos at 150-160 PSI and they are seriously fast, grip well and provide a supple ride comparable to Continental GP4000S clinchers (one of the best clinchers ever) pumped to 110 PSI. I cannot comment on durability as I clocked 1000 km only, but the ride quality and speed are excellent.
