Unknown (to me) tubular tires

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Sunday I saw the Rabobank team using these Vredestein tubular tires but I cant' seem to find them on the market.
I wonder if they it's a prototype that we will see on the market in the future or they are custom tires made only for them

pretty sure they are rebranded Dugasts
A light bike does replace good fitness.

No. It's the other way around. This tire is designed with the Typhoon like tread in mind.

The tubulars on those wheels are regular Typhoons with teamsponsor branding on it.
