Choosing the right tyre for your cycling needs is essential as your tyres are the only point of contact between you and the road. Variations in treads, compounds and designs are used to offer the maximum amount of grip for the intended terrain of the tyre.
A tubular tyre, also known as a 'tub', is a bicycle tyre that is stitched closed around an inner tube, the tyre is fitted to the wheel rim using either glue or tape. Tubular tyres are designed specifically for racing, they offer a reduction in rolling resistance and therefore an increase in performance and speed. They can be run at low pressures and still provide great puncture protection which is ideal for racing on varied terrains.
