I have some Tufo EliteJets 20mm and Elite Pulse 22mm tubs here. I'm considering putting the EliteJets on LW Meilensteins.
I'm curious how such a light tire behaves. I'm quite sure they are very resistant to flats but I'm afraid they are too narrow for good handling.
Any thoughts / experiences with any of these?
Not trying to be harsh - just a realistic view of the value of a good search
Bottom line - tufos on such nice wheels is a shame.
But, I just want to test things, I dont make decisions by reading forum posts. I just have the chance to get tubulars for testing so what's wrong to put Tufos on LWs for a few weeks? I have used many tubulars on different wheels and I can say that some Tufos are really excellent while other are far away from excellence. Depends on the model. The same with some other more respected brands.
I think that if you want to test the tyre you should put in on top wheels to really feel the details. (And on a wheel which you are used to)
Anyway, that's another topic, I don't want to start a tubular war here:)
Now I am just curious if there is anyone having any kind of experience with Elite Jet and Elite Pulse tubs.
Yesterday I have put both on the wheels (not glue them) and EliteJet really looks too narrow for all-around use. But they are amazingly light (155g on my scale) and very well build so I'm sure that there are people on WW who use them.
Yesterday I also got some info that they are among the best handling tyres (on wet and dry).
I'm not a true WW but 155g comparing to 260 (conti competition) is 210g saving on rotating mass.. Does this still means "shame" on wheels which are intentionally light?
So, simply saying that puting tufos on LWs is a shame is not enough for me but thanks anyway for your opinion;)

Ok, I volunteer to be a test dummy for Tufo Elite Pulse. I will let you guys know how shitty the are:) Just give me a couple of weeks...
For the record - so far I tried
Schwalbe Ultremo HT
Conti Force Attack
Favourites so far: Schwalbe ultremo, Force Attack, S3Lite.
Btw, speaking of tubulars.. does anyone know who makes the Bontrager tubulars? Vittoria?
