Smash the gas.

I run these on a set of Reynolds DV 46T UL's and I run them hard... 2K miles on rough stuff like highway glass and thru construction zones. I wore the drive tire ragged until the sealant would do no good and bought a replacement - no front wheel swap either. The front should last at least until I fray the bejeezus out of the rear again. These tires roll well over the gnarliest street chode, so I imagine they should do well for those looking for an inexpensive high-end bruiser tire. Spend the extra dough for the tire sealant and Tufo rim tape, when you get to using them, you'll feel like you did yourself a solid.

A league of their own!

These were my first Tufo's and I now realize that that TUFO tires are in a completely different league of their own when it comes to performance road tires. Conti's and Vittoria's don't even come close to the durability and reliability of these TUFO tires. Granted, this is the only TUFO model I've had, but I can't imagine ever getting a non-TUFO tire again. I paid a lot more for mine too so this is a really good deal. I'll buy them here next time, except their so good it might be a long while before I need to. Definitely use the TUFO Extreme gluing tape by the way. WAAAYYY easier than glue.

Great tires at an unbeatable price

I have ridden many hundreds of miles on these tires without a flat. Their durability is the best I have seen. the road feel is not quite as good as some other tires I have ridden, but given the price and the confidence of not getting a flat these are the only tires I run on my good bikes. It should be noted that these tires are not stitched together and therefore cannot be repaired. However, the Tufo sealant will fix just about anything.

Excellent Flat Protection

A year or so ago I was musing on whether to buy a set of Tubular wheels but hesitated due to the negative issue of flat repair on Tubular Tires. Although my highly rated Tufo Special 33 rear Tufo flatted within a couple rides due to unlucky nail laden path,giving me that Oh NO feeling, my front Tufo Sp. 33(cousin to Tufo Hi-Composite Carbon ) has lasted for over two seasons of riding the mountains of Frederick, Md where roads are not smooth ,it even survived a crash where my front wheel was knocked rightward askew. It was still going strong about two months ago but the tread was beginning to wear a bit too much even tho the tire held its 150 psi pressure for many days. I replaced it with the Tufo Hi-Composite Carbon and its held pressure and had no flats even over my spring climbing season in those mountains. There so good, I kept them on my Trek for a climbing vacation in France. Stay away from Vittoria tubies until they solve fast leak issues on the Vitt Rubino Pro or Evo corsa Tubies. The former flat very easy

Tufo Carbon Tire, great road tire.

This is my first venture into the world of tufo tires. As of this writing and several hundred miles on these tires, Im very happy with the performance of them. I have always glued my other tubulars,what a messy and long process,the tufo tape which goes on very easy and the ease of aligning the tire on the rim makes short order of this process. It took me about 15 minutes to mount a tire.

i have gone down hills at 40 mph, done some pretty sharp corners,with no problems. Also did a lot of research on these tires and the tufo tape. As it stands now ,I will be using these tires exclusively from here out.

Great quality, great ride, minimal downside

I've ridden almost nothing but tubulars since 1981. I trained and raced on them, and I went through Panaracer, Vittoria, Continental, Wolber you name it. Tufo tires are the most uniform, roundest, and the most free from defects by a wide, wide margin. Also, not having a tube allows sealant to make permanent repairs, because you actually seal the thicker tire wall. I use Tufo sealant when I mount the tire with Tufo glue strips and I carry a bottle on the road for a quick repair. Every 5,000 miles or so I have to call for a ride home, but that's probably an average for any of us. This particular Tufo is their best all-around value, and it rides as well as many of the more costly ones. The 700x22 size is durable and supple. I use these on two sets of Campy Hyperons, and the combination is as good as anything at any price for all-around road riding and racing.

After using almost 500 tubulars in my training and racing career, I now use half as many tires per year with Tufo H-CC tubulars. And if you have to, you can actually ride home on a flat, but I don't recommend it on a $3,200 wheelset. Once you get the whole stretching, sealant, glue strip thing down, they're a joy.
