Eventually Hubjub was going to have to offer a tubular product and here it is, the TB25 tubular. Tubulars are still de rigueur on track applications and were always a popular choice on road time trials due to the lightness of the tubs themselves as well as lightweight rims made possible by dispensing with the bead hook required by clinchers. In this instance the weight is 438g, and that is with no shallow section hoop but a medium profile aero rim. Whilst the incremental improvement to clincher rims and the advent of tubeless technology has continued to erode the benefits of tubular tyres outside the velodrome they are still favoured by many connoisseurs and these Kinlin rims are an affordable means of building your own decent tubular wheelset. They are a medium profile design with machined sidewall and without eyelets. We normally have 32s in stock and can supply drillings between 24 and 32 hole.
The real Kinlin edge is their metallurgy. Know how people go on about the quality of things in the old days being superior to products available today? Thats often due to the quality of the metal. Kinlin uses T10 tempering on its aluminium: the most comprehensive of the internationally recognised heat treatment proceses.
