Tufo follows up their best-selling S3 Lite Tire with the updated Elite S3 Lite Tubular Road Tire. It features a redesigned tread pattern for improved cornering traction and a higher thread count casing with 375 TPI under the tread plus wider base tape for even better ride quality. It comes from Tufo with a guaranteed weight of less than 265 g, so it's plenty light for race day, yet its grippy SPC Silica tread compound provides high mileage as well as fantastic grip. Backing it all up are two layers of flat resistance with their standard puncture-proof ply underneath, plus an additional protective rubber ply under the tread.
700c x 25 mm. 210 TPI casing at sidewalls, 375 TPI under tread. Claimed weight is 265g maximum. Fits tubular specific rims only.
