Tubular and Tubular Clincher

Tufo's main products are tubular tyres and tubular tyres for clincher rims (tubular clinchers). Construction of both types is essentially the same, consisting of closed tubular toroid. Difference is only in the installation of the tyre on the rim.

How does the Tufo Tubular Clincher work?

When inflated, the tubular clincher, 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 possibility of the tubular clincher unseating. The bottom profiled bead band does not function only as a filling in the area between the rim and the tubular clincher but also plays an active role. As the tubular clincher is inflated, the band sides literally “bite” into the rim shoulders.

Benefits of Tufo Tubular Clinchers

• 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 walls) • same riding quality as with tubulars • safe handling in case of punctures, the stability of a rider is not affected • in case of emergency, the tubular clincher can be ridden flat • the fastest and easiest installation and dismantling without any tools
