Continental Giro Tubular Tire
The natural sidewall Giro Tubular Tire has seemingly been around forever. And why not? There is still a significant number of riders who love tubulars and want an affordable, durable tire that rolls well. This robust and economical tire suits these cyclists to a T. The Giro is also a great training tire for budget conscious racers, especially those who prefer not to train with clinchers, then adapt to tubulars for a race. The durable tread delivers high mileage and decent puncture protection. This inexpensive tire is also great to carry along as a spare, and with it's removeable valve core, you can easily add sealant for small punctures that penetrate the casing.
The Giro is built with a smooth rolling 2-ply cotton casing and a natural rubber compound. Time tested, and true, these materials keep the price down and the tire rolling. With pressure range of 115-145 psi, most riders will find a perfect pressure for the conditions. Glue it on (cure), then let it roll!
