This is from Sagan's ride for Roubaix. I have seen the Specialized sponsored team riding these tires in classics and road races for sometimes now but don't seem to be available for sale? All I can find on Specialized website are the Turbo Tubular allround 2. The one Sag and co are using seems to have tire structure very similar to S-Works Turbo Cotton which are amazing clinchers tires.

Is this the case similar to Continental Competition Proltd shenanigans where normal people can't buy them of the shelves? Whatever the case with UCI rule that all race equipments must be available to the public?

Edit- i read on cyclingtips , saying these tires are FMB corton casing with specialized tread cap.

Those tires look so pretty... I'll still ride Vittoria Corsa G Tubulars in 28. Such a durable and sexy tire.
