The Almanzo is the ideal tire for gravel and adventure riders seeking more control than the Strada Bianca and lower resistance than the Gravel Grinder. This handmade tubular combines a supple, 260TPI SuperPoly casing with natural rubber tread, and a seamless latex inner tube for improved comfort, confident cornering, and quick handing. The latex tube is lighter, thinner and more flexible than a butyl tube, increasing your comfort, lowering your rolling resistance, and helping to prevent flats. The tube also includes a removable core Presta valve. This tire includes PPS2, a combination of our sub-tread Puncture Protection System and an additional layer inside the casing to increase resistance to punctures.
- Handmade tires combine many attributes to create the most comfortable and lowest rolling resistance tires.
- Latex tubes are stronger, lighter, super supple, absorb shock, and conform precisely to terrain, reducing rolling resistance.
- The Puncture Protection Strip is a special fabric placed between a tire's tread and casing to increase resistance to punctures. Designed for rough roads and gravel, PPS2 tires have an additional protection layer between the casing and the inner tube.
