Speed above all else. The Tempo II Tubular is the ultimate track racing weapon thanks to its super-light construction and excellent handling characteristics.
Each tire is handcrafted in Germany using a super-fine nylon casing and a thin layer of Black Chili rubber for an incredibly low rolling resistance, superior ride quality and excellent traction. Though it's engineered exclusively the track, the featherweight Tempo II is frequently "misused" by the pros in grand tour mountain stages and time trials, though not officially endorsed for these applications.
The Tempo II features a three fabric ply casing for a total of 180 TPI. Max inflation pressure of 170 psi. Manufactured in Germany. 700c x 22mm (22-622 ISO) 220g.
