We have catheads where I race but I imagine the probability of flats would be the same with clichers and tubies.

I've heard of riders using it with Tufo tyres, is it an option with other brands?

As I said above, I used it with a Veloflex tubular.

i think the Tufo are lighter than the veloflex (tufo 160g - velo 180g) the clincher version is lighter tho 130g tufo's have a higher thread count 400TPI - and are very puncture resistant under normal situation.
