Specialized rep left his laptop unattended for 5 minutes Image.
26mm and 28mm only. No 24s. Too bad they are slow as hell. Don't require sealent or tire levers apparently.
These are what PS was using at tdu people's choice classic and etc.
Supposed to have a poop load of grip and not be useless in the rain. ImageImageImage

So it's not as fast as the turbo cotton, but better puncture resistance and grip then.

Also doesn't say what kind of inner tube were used but I assume normal butyl so the RR Delta could be a tad higher in favour of the TC.

Disappointed to not see a 24mm. The 25mm GP5000 is giving me some slight frame rub

If it is a grippy as they say it is, then I'm getting a set. The Gp5000 is just okay in terms of grip and I am willing to trade watts for cornering.

Spec rep claims turbo ultralights (butyl iirc) for 1, 3, 4. no sealent for rapid air tl.
