Diamond or Latex?
The diamond tread is an excellent tread for tactical races, where rolling resistant is less important, like for example races behind a derny or the points race.
The latex tread is an excellent tread for races in which every second counts, like for example the keirin and the sprint.
Cotton or silk?
The silk tyres will give you more pleasure because of the lower rolling resistance.
The cotton tyres give less risks on a puncture than the silk tyre.
What is the lifetime of the track tyres?
The life time of the tyres always refer to the lifetime of the tread.
The lifetime of the diamond tread is about 2000 km, if the tubular is used on a good track.
The lifetime of the latex tread is at least 350 – 400 km, if the tubular is used on a smooth track. On a concrete track the lifetime is very low.
How long are the valves of the track tyres?
All road tyres have a removable valve of 38 mm. If you would like to have a longer valve, you can add a valve extender to your order. Our valve extenders are 25 mm long and are compatible with our road, cross and track tyres.
