When the red shows through an Elite Ride, you have lot's of miles left.

My rear Elite Ride has been showing red for about three months. It's now beginning to show black and next will be the threads. I'll change it then. I spend lots of time riding dirt roads and never had a flat. I put 15 ml of Stan's in them when I mount them. So don't change them too soon.

Solid Tough Tubular

I wouldn't consider this a racing tubular, but I think the Tufo Elite series of tires are among the very best tubulars for training, group rides, road event rides, etc. I ride 23mm on the front and 25mm on the rear. They are very durable, seem to withstand puncture better than most tubulars and wear extremely well. I use Stan's NoTubes sealant, an ounce or so, in my training tubulars and Stan's / Tufo creates a tubular setup you can ride for months pretty much worry free. Forget about the Tufo sealant, by the way, as it's just not as good as Stan's. I mention that because I did get a small puncture on this tire about 600 miles in, and Stan's sealed it immediately. Not only did I complete that ride with no problems but I've ridden it several hundred more miles without incident.

Easy to install, durable and solid feel on all road conditions.

Use on my road bike used for training rides and rainy or winter weather conditions. Tire goes on without a struggle. I use Tufo gluing tape which makes the install a breeze. Tire is durable and wears well, at least so far after only a few hundred miles. Solid road feel - good grip and roll.

First tubular experience has been good so far

Being new to tubs I was a bit hesitant about the whole black magic of the glueing process. Came across Tufo in my research and their taping system and thought I'd take the plunge. These 23's roll well, but seem a bit stiff coming from what I'm used to (Michelin Pro4 clinchers), but my experience with tubs is limited so take this review with that in mind. The installation couldn't have been easier. I've only ridden in the dry so no comment on the wet experience.

Long lasting, reliable, and a great training and racing tire

I've use Tufo tubulars for many years on my race wheels. I've never flatted - I use Stan's or Tufo tire sealant and mount my own tires using the Tufo tape. Tufo just gets better every year. These new tires have a better ride and grip plus the reliability and bulletproof features that have always been Tufo's trademark.

Nice and light, wears easily.

10 crits, 2 time-trials, with zero training miles on 'em, and the wear strip is showing over a 13 of the tire. I'm not a fan.

A tough, reliable, all-around tire with good ride characteristics and grip.

I now use this as my regular everyday tire (I am a die-hard fan of sew-ups). I ride hard 200 - 300 miles per week year-round along the Chicago lakefront and suburbs, including some notorious glass-strewn stretches. They are quite good at resisting flats. They also wear well giving good service for 2K miles. Highly recommended by a veteran rider.

The Tufo Ellite is now my favorite tube tire.

After installing these tires and putting my first 100 miles on them I have decided these will be my mainstay for my pleasure and semi-competitive riding. I switch from tubular to clinchers in the winter because I am riding rough country roads and its dark in the fall when I ride. But I am looking forward to next spring when I get back on my tubulars! I like them so much I set up two sets of wheelsets with the Tufo's but I haven't had any flats yet after about 450 miles.

These tires. Easy to install and very durable. I just wish they made a folding version to have a spare.

These tires are awsome

Prior to these I have been running Zipp and Vittoria tubular tires. After having two Zip's and one Vittoria fail at the stem in the course of two weeks, I will no longer be purchasing those brands again. They have been replaced by Tufo.

Solid tire if you can get a decent buy.

Riding these to replace the even more pricy Vittoria Corsa Evo CX with my carbon wheels. Reasonable wear (1264 miles on rear, 3863 front may be my best) but usually flatted before that. I do run them with Stan's sealant which is great for the occasional staple or thorn, but doesn't help if I lock up the brakes and take the tire down to the red layer. Operator error, I know.

Great Tubular so far. Love the feel and unexpected air retention.

Have stayed with tubulars, even for training. Love the feel. An unexpected surprise is these tire hold air for days, I've gone up to two weeks without topping off the air.

Very satisfied with this tire

So far, very satisfied with these tires, I have rideen Tufo tubulars before, and needed a 23mm for new wheel set, This appeared to be only Tufo road tire available in that size, I have riden over 1000 miles on the tires so far, and tread wear is holding up pretty well, also have run over some debris that has caused a few minor slits in the tread, but tires seems to have held up well in spite of the minor damage.

Solid Training Tire. Finding the proper psi is the key.

I have about 500 miles on these tires to date with no issue. I have experimented with different pressures and found that 140-150 is a good comprimise. They take more psi to reduce the rolling resistance than other tubulars.

Overall, I would put this tire in the training versus racing category due to the high rolling resistance.

I would NOT use any type of tape on this tire but good old fashion glue. I tried the tape just to see and it made the tire ride very lumpy.

3000 miles and running on my front

Some emergency braking took my back tire into the red layer and I had a puncture on the back just under 1,000 miles, but the front is performing very well with over 3,000 miles logged. I'm on my third rear tire in that time.
