The Criterium is already a super fast rolling tire with impressive cornering control. This model's silk (seta) casing enhances the tires suppleness for an even more extraordinary ride. This handmade tubular combines a supple, 1000+ TPI Sealed Silk casing with natural rubber tread, and a seamless latex inner tube for improved comfort, confident cornering, and quick handing. The latex tube is lighter, thinner and more flexible than a butyl tube, increasing your comfort, lowering your rolling resistance, and helping to prevent flats. The tube also includes a removable core Presta valve. This tire includes PPS Ganzo, a lightweight and supple Puncture Protection System placed between the tread and casing to increase resistance to punctures.
