The Dugast Typhoon Flying Doctor- This is a competition tire for fast courses. The tube is designed for low pressure. It has a slightly stiffer casing than the original Typhoon and Pipistrello tubular tire. This casing will help keep the contact patch of the tread exactly where you want it. This creates less drag because of the minimal tire movement, which results in higher speeds. Available in 33mm. 380 grams. (32mm) 1.6-3.0 bar recommended pressure. The current inventory has a natural tan sidewall and BLACK tread. These differ from the shown picture. A perfect match with our Mastik Tubular Glue and and Sidewall Sealant. Absolutely no tubular may be returned that has been glued. Dugast tubbies are truly hand constructed the “old fashioned” way. This produces a tire that is second to none. Andre Dugast started with Dourdoigne in 1952 and branched out on his own in 1974, just three years before Dourdoigne closed their doors forever. He has seen the rise and fall of all the modern champions, and made tubulars for most of them. At its height, the Andre Dugast Company employed 6 people. Today he works alone and is one of the masters of a dying art. Dugast casings define what supple means. In Europe, Top pro’s run these at unthinkable low pressures. A top notch glue job is critical when rolling around the course at 25 psi! Dugast tires are designed for classic European style cross courses. This means grassy fields (generally smooth) with a combination of pavement.
