The Turbo Tubular Team is built to be the fastest tire in the pro peloton. Its 290-thread-per-inch casing provides and Specialized's proprietary Gripton rubber compound offer an amazing road feel and exceptional traction. These treads also feature Specialized's BlackBelt technology for worry-free riding and great flat protection.
Size: 700 x 23c
BlackBelt is Specialized's most efficient and dynamic puncture protection for their fastest tires. A strip of tightly cross-woven material (see image, red) is tucked directly under the tread, providing ultra-tough puncture and cut resistance. This lightweight barrier protects against glass, nails, or whatever else the road throws in your way, and is highly flexible to keep rolling resistance low.
Tubular tires are compatible with tubular rims and are installed with glue or a special adhesive tape. Tubular tires will not work on clincher rims (the standard rim type). If you have any questions about compatibility or mounting, please contact us for details.
The high thread-per-inch casing let this tire conform to the road/trail for superior cornering and comfort.
