Tubular benefits; easier install

The Tufo Hi-Composite Carbon Tubular-Clincher tires sit neatly on the rim while also having the functionality of a tubular tire. With outstanding rolling performance, these tires are lightweight and offer excellent puncture resistance. The tubular clincher inflates in the same way as a tubular, pressing towards the rim. At the same time, the beaded block of the rubber band profile spreads out to embed on the rim shoulder without any rotation of the tire. The Tufo Hi-Composite Carbon Tubular-Clincher is a win-win for racing and training.


  • Tufo's tubular clincher tires can be inflated up to 220psi without any damage to the rim walls
  • Maintain the same riding qualities as tubular tires
  • Safe handling in the case of punctures
  • Fast and easy installation without any tools

Wasn't easy, but they went on. Don't fail to watch Tufo's instructional video. I put them on my Mercier Kilo. The difference between the tires that came on the bike and these is stark. These ride like butter.

Tubeless without the mess

Now that I have 1200 miles on these tires, I feel I can give a review. I set up my tires on Campagnolo Vento wheels with 17mm internal rim width.

Following the instructions that come with the tire, I found them easy to mount right out of the box. The trick is to ease the tire only going to the middle of the tire first. Once the tire is halfway on all around then its easy to push it the rest of the way on. After seating and inflating the tire, I let out the air, pulled the valve core and added 2 ounces of sealant per tire. Since Im 185 pounds I added air to 70 pounds front and 80 pound back. I worked my way down to this over a few rides. The tires measure 1 inch even, an honest 25.4mm.

Every ride of mine starts and ends with three miles of gravel and dirt road. I then go to questionably maintained pavement. The tires ride very smoothly. When riding in the drops I feel no road buzz. Acceleration is good, cornering is extremely secure. Ive even had the chance to ride them on wet roads and the ride was confidence inspiring.

After 1200 miles, Im seeing miner wear and cuts in the tread. Most of the cuts dont show any sealant leaking through. I really enjoy the ease, durability (so far), and comfort of these tires. I would like to try the Ride Elite some day. I feel tubular clinchers are far superior to tubeless tires.
