A tyre that can be used on a course which is dry or where the layer on top of the course is slippery. The duo compound gives the tyre its excellent capacities. The outer studs are twice as high as the studs in the middle. This and the extremely soft rubber mix of the outer studs give an extreme grip in the turns. Because of the lower studs in the middle the rolling resistance is very limited. This tyre is the perfect mix between a rhino and a typhoon.
The Flying doctor casing makes it possible that you dont get the feeling that your tyre rolls off the rim, which allows you to take the curves faster with a low tyre pressure. The flying doctor casing also offers you a better protection against flats because of stones or glass and the casing is 10 g lighter as the normal cotton casing.
Pressure: 1.8 to 3.5 bar
Weight (approx): 375 g
This tubular has been treated with a neoprene coating so does not require the addition of Aquasure.
This tubular is only available in the wide base tape.
Wide basetape - For rims 23 to 28mm
Please note that this is a high performance tubular designed for grip and suppleness and recommended for racing only. To maximise the lifespan of the casing great care must be taken with the tubular's maintenance regime.
Care instructions for Neoprene coated tubulars:
It's important to remember that the thin Neoprene coating is designed to improve tubular durability and resistance to degradation whilst not affecting the tubulars performance and without the need to manually coat the tubular with a substance like Aquasure. However, the tubular still requires a high level of care. It is important that after using the tyres you wash these with water and soap - but be sure not to use any aggressive products. Let the tubulars then dry at room temperature (around 20 degrees).
It's important to choose the correct width base tape for your wheels. To ensure ease of fitting, inflate the tubular for 24hrs before gluing. To ensure a successful bond after gluing it's necessary that the radius of the rim well and outer radius of the tubular are matched. For rims with a smaller radius than the tubular it's advised to fill the centre of the rim with an additional strip of old basetape to ensure contact between the tubular and the rim in the centre as well as the edges.
