FMB Performance Tubular


A tubular tire for setting records. Superlight, with the most supple silk casing and an ultra-fine tread pattern, the Performance TT is the ultimate race tire. Also available with the more economical cotton casing.

FMB tubulars are made by hand in a small workshop in Brittany, France. The tread is glued to the inflated casing to avoid the inbuilt stresses that occur with ‘flat-glued’ tubulars. This means that the tread absorbs less energy when it deforms as the tire rolls along. The result is a faster, more supple tire. These are the tires that professional racers buy with their own money for their most important races.
