Dugast Pipistrello Neoprene Cyclocross Tire
Equipped for smooth and dependable performance on fast tracks, the Dugast Pipistrello Neoprene Cyclocross Tire features a cotton casing with a neoprene coating for a premium handmade tubular experience.
Ready for racing, this cyclocross (CX) tire features a diamond tread design with Rhino side knobs for grip on slightly wet track, grass and in the woods. Another highlight is its 100% cotton casing with high thread-per-inch (TPI), which offers increased puncture resistance, more elasticity, lower rolling resistance and better handling in corners. Used and loved by most professional riders, and winners of races and championships, Dugast joined the Vittoria Group in May 2021.
Invented and first used by A Dugast, the Neoprene Coating is a special protection coating applied to A Dugast tires to extend their lifetime preventing the tire casing to absorb humidity and mud. The Neoprene Coating is a 0.1 mm-thick layer of silicon applied with a brush on the tire casing filling the empty spaces in the yarn. The coating prevents water and debris to penetrate the casing as well as preventing aggressive cleaners to deteriorate the casing material. Thanks to the Neoprene Coating, A Dugast tires are easy to clean and last longer. More importantly, the coating does not affect the tire functionality and comfort.
Base Rim Tape
As the use of wheels with disc brakes and the use of larger tires are increasingly popular, A Dugast offers Cross tires with a wider base tape for a better fit with larger rims. The larger base tape increases the protection of the tubular sidewall from snakebites.
