Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The same great tire as its' 225 gram brother! Same vectran seal! The difference is in the air pressure you can apply -- I run 180psi, but it can roll at 220psi if needed -- not needed. Fast tire, less weight, and very very gripy. Compared to TUFO 33s, they're not as fast (fractional), but are far superior in design and grip. Much much more safe guarded against punctures than TUFO.

Top Speed that flats fast as well
3 5

Let's be honest, if you want the best tubular tire for speed, for one race, then this is your tire. If, on the other hand, you're looking for durability and long wear then you're looking at the wrong tire.

This tire is a low milage, expensive tire -- not recommended for your group ride!

This is perhaps the "only" tire type you will find (in a high-end tubular) which truly pumps up to an extremely high pressure (up to 220psi, I run at around 185 psi), and rolls on the very tip of the tire(for the ultimate reduction in rolling resistance).

Conversely, If you want decent speed without any worries regarding flats then I highly recommend the Continental Comp 19 at around 230 grams for the 28/19 tubular (170 psi easy). Now this is a great tire for the money.I hope this helps!Cheers!!!
