Please Note: This tire is listed as a clincher tire, but it is a specific tire of tire that brings you the benefits of a tubular tire, that is only compatible with clincher type rims. It is called a “tubular clincher” type tire and cannot be used on tubular rims.
The thinner tread of this road bike tire also lowers rolling resistance while the tire is maintaining ideal shock absorption properties and high puncture resistance.

How Does the Tubular Clincher Tire Work? When inflated, the tubular clincher (see image below), in the same way as a tubular, is pressed towards the rim. Simultaneously, the bead blocks of the profiled rubber band spread out embedding on the rim shoulders and eliminating any rotation of the tubular clincher against the rim as well as the possibility of the tubular clincher unseating. As the tubular clincher is inflated, the band side literally ‘bite’ into the rim shoulders. Benefits of Tufo’s tubular clincher tires: high inflation pressures - up to 15 bars (220 psi) without any damage to the rim walls, even in a case when the rim manufacturer specifies lower inflation pressures (the pressure is contained inside the tubular clincher and does not affect the rim wall), same riding quality as with tubular tires, safe handling in case of punctures (the stability of a rider is not affected), the tubular clincher can be ridden when flat, and the fastest and easiest installation and dismantling without any tools.
