Still the wheels of choice of pros and top amateur racers, if you want to get the most out of your race bike, then tublars are the way to go.

They are light, very aero and fast, developed for the Handsling Racing team riders that wanted super lightweight tubulars with the latest, wide profile rims, and use these wheels in road races, crits, time-trials and in cyclocross.

All wheels are built by professional, experienced wheel builders to the closest of tolerances.
