From all choices is clincher tyre the heaviest. Necessity to use a much heavier inner tube that adds more weight and increases rolling resistance.
Used by majority of competitive cyclists. Tubular tyre is the lightest one from all the tyre types and has the lowest rolling resistance. For a ride with feeling of lightness and great acceleration in critical moments.
Unique patented construction. No extra investment in switching from clincher tyres to tubular clincher tyres. Riding properties are equal to those of tubular tyres.
A durable tread compound that has proven its quality for years. This standard compound with a high content of Carbon black quarantees very good mileage for road tubulars, durability and puncture resistance in certain cyclo-cross tubulars and low weight for means of which the high modulus long aramid fibres are introduced into the tyre carcass during the technological process. CRCA increases the puncture resistance and total carcass strength. CRCA improves riding comfort and decreses vibrations. In all models.
A soft compound (60 Shore A) developed for MTB cross country and marathon tubulars. Adding a reasonable amount of oil to a polymer blend with Activated Silica improves traction and reduces rolling resistance. Reasonable tread wear.
A very light rubber/polyester composite antipuncture layer. This is used in Calibra tyres to enhance sidewall durability.
CRCA is a special composite material, by means of which the high modulus long aramid fibres are introduced into the tyre carcass during the technological process. CRCA increases the puncture resistance and total carcass strength. CRCA improves riding comfort and decreses vibrations. In all models.
We use this high performance road racing tread compound in the majority of our road tubulars. With 66 Shore A hardness this well-balanced blend of synthetic and natural rubbers with Activated Silica filler provides tubulars with excellent wet grip and low rolling resistance.
A compound for indoor sports on wooden or plastic floors. Used in Cycle-ball, Artistic cycling and wheelchairs sports tubulars for excellent traction and quick handling. Manufactured in many colours including black, this compound doesn’t leave any colour marks on floors. Not suitable for wet conditions.
This natural rubber based compound with Activated Silica offers lower rolling resistance than SPC. The softer 63 Shore A hardness compound used in Calibra road tyres is the key factor for speed, ride comfort and predictable cornering. Despite its softness the LPS Silica compound also gives very good mileage to our road tyres. Thanks to its natural rubber and Activated Silica blend excels especially at low temperature and provides our Flexus cyclocross tubulars with a supple ride and an unbeatable grip on snow and ice.
A specially formulated slippery sidewall strip protects the most vulnerable part of certain MTB tubulars. This special sidewall strip allows the tubular to slide off sharp edges without damaging the tyre carcass.
This is an indoor wooden track specific compound for extra speed, grip and quick handling. Not suitable for wet conditions.
VECTRAN PUNCTURE BARRIER
This most effective anti-puncture system is placed directly under the tread area. A core of the anti-puncture system is made from VECTRAN – liquid crystal polymer (LCP) fibres which are five times stronger than steel. VECTRAN offers also outstanding cut resistance and high impact resistace at a low weight – highly demanding properties for high-end bicycle tyres. VECTRAN PUNCTURE BARRIER not only provides the best possible puncture protection but also ensures cornering and stability.
