TUFO Tubular and Clincher Technology

   TUFO TUBULAR TIRE 

How does it work? When inflated, the tubular tire is pressed towards the rim. The joint between the tire and the rim is glued.



   TUFO TUBULAR CLINCHER TIRE

How does it work? When inflated, the tubular clincher, in the same way as tubular tire, is pressed towards the rim. Simultaneously, the side blocks of the profiled rubber band spread out, embedding on the rim shoulders, eliminating the possibility of a rotation of the tire against the rim as well as the possibility of the tire unseating. The bottom profiled band does not function only as a fill in the area between the rim and the tire but plays an active role. As the tire is inflated, the band sides "bite" into the shoulders of the rim. This is the major difference from all previous unsuccessful experiments of other tire manufacturers, where the bottom rubber band was in fact only a passive fill between the rim and the tire.
 

The characteristics for both types of TUFO tires are:

  • high quality
  • minimum run-out
  • excellent traction
  • high mileage
