Tubular (Sew-up) Race Tires
Used with Tufo tape instead of glue for no mess, easy install. Insert Tufo sealant to prevent flats from small punctures. Ride more, wrench less!
Got 3000 miles on my last set if tires. Will only purchase Gatorskins. No tire is puncture resistant but these wear great. I roll on 25mm, like the wider tire, rolls smooth.
As a former Cat II racer who is just getting back into cycling after 15 years of sitting on the couch, I was looking to replace the dry rotted Vittoria Corsa CX tires on my racing bike. Not wanting to spend the money on the new CXs, I decided to try the Conti Giros. After 400 miles, the tires are holding up nicely. They corner well, show good traction in wet condition and seem to hold air pressure. While I am not sure that I would race on them, for training and fast rec rides, they are a fabulous value. Time will tell if thay rate 5 stars.
