A great choice for all-around cyclocross conditions
Pro riders get equipment free and can afford to have multiple tubular wheel/tire combos for grass, mud, dry, asphalt, etc. to suit the day's conditions - a luxury those of us who pay for tires cannot afford! A Grifo tubular feature an all-around tread pattern that works well on many surfaces - providing a single setup you can use with confidence in almost any race conditions. If you can only have one tubular tire/wheel setup, make it a general-use tread pattern like the Grifo.
TECH NOTE: this is a tubular bicycle tire with a captive (stitched-in) latex inner tube (also called a "sew-up".) It must be glued or taped onto a tubular rim for safe use. It will not work on a traditional clincher wheel/rim. Proper setup is essential for your safety - if you are not qualified to install tubular tires, please seek expert guidance first.

Worth the xtra $ - I have been a challenge fan for years. However, I would go through at least two sets a season - primarily do to sidewall breakdown. The TE - with coated sidewalls will last 1.5 to 2.0 seasons - worth every incremental dollar.
Thanks for the comments Kevin and I really appreciate your business.
