Construction of the Open Tubular tyre includes lightweight Aramid bead for compatibility with ETRTO standard clincher bead rims and a high thread-count, SuperPoly casing which increases suppleness and reduces rolling resistance compared to regular Poly casings. Designed especially for the high speeds of time trials and triathlon, the great thing about this hand-made tyre is that being an open tubular it can be installed on a rim for clinchers with inner tube without having to fuss with rim glues and time consuming clean-ups' afterwards. Whether you're a Pro or just a hard core enthusiast, Record is the tyre you need.
What is an Open Tubular?
The Open Tubular is constructed using the same process, casing and tread materials as a standard tubular. The difference is that instead of sewing the casing together (closed), the sides of the tubular casing are folded around Aramid fibre cords to produce beads. This 'open' design performs like a tubular, yet conveniently mounts like a standard clincher tyre. If combined with a latex inner tube the ride becomes even closer to that of a tubular, offering excellent traction and cornering, low rolling resistance and shock absorption.
