Tubular with a very soft 320 TPI (Threads Per Inch) Corespun casing and an innovative compound that provides very low rolling resistance and great roadholding. It is equipped with an anti-puncture protection belt and an exclusive latex air chamber, for improved elasticity in every condition.

Technical details
TPI (Threads Per Inch) 320 Threads Per Inch (120/cm)
Protection Belt Calicot puncture resistant layer
Casing Compressed Pes/Co corespun
Rubber tread Natural rubber and silica exclusive compound
Inner tube Latex low rolling resistance
Valve Presta 42 mm with changeable core
