Regular tubulars look like on the right side. A cotton tube sewed together with a basetape covering and a thread glued on the other side. Added are a latex tube inside. But Dugast is making progress and gluing and adding latex to the cotton so loosing both seems and tubes. Makes the construction better so riders like Nino Schurter and Wout Van Aert can ride with higher pressure but with same grip and plushness. The solution also saves 10% in weight compared to regular tubulars.
Tufo has always done this but with rubber all the way so have been pretty harsh. But who will follow Dugast now when they soon are releasing their tires leading the industry once again?
Started the day with a long sleep. Really nice to just sleep until you wake up yourself and then a bit more 🙂 Easy morning and then I used my winter riding jacket, shoecovers and lobsters for the first time this winter. minus degrees outside and 3h on the schedule. Rode in to work to meet Jessica and we left for Hellas, Erstavik and many gravel roads in the sun. Beautiful day to ride in the sun with blue sky and not to fast. Great in all ways. Except I forgot to take a picture to share with you.
Nice with my winter jacket and lobsters today too, took some time to learn to ride a cx with Campagnolo levers with lobsters but worked fine. And my Assos Fugu jacket was almost too warm with just a thin underjersey underneath 😉
