DUGAST Tubular 26 "Fast Bird Flying Doctor 50mm Tubular
The second of Thomas Frischknecht with developed tubulars characterized by its very low rolling resistance. The trick, in the carcass is the cotton thread is replaced by a more solid, the "Flying Doctor". The carcass gets thereby more rigidity, making riding even lower air pressure while allowing but not made to feel that the tire rolls off the rim.
The Tubular system allows the use of less pressure, which offers more comfort and just relieved on long trips, the postural muscles and can tire the driver later. In addition, greater lean angles are possible in curves, and improved substrate adhesion uphill the recipe for success of this lightweight tire. The composite tube and tire provides weight savings and increased breakdown strength because the tube can not be "crushed" on the rim. Furthermore, the jacket in extreme braking maneuvers do not slip off the rim, since it is glued.
