What happens if we put tube in tubeless TYRE?

Even from a performance point of view, tubular tires make sense for pro racers. A tubular isn’t constrained by the rim sidewalls, so it can flex more. This means that a 25 mm tubular gives you the shock absorption of a 28 mm clincher – useful when you’re descending bumpy mountain passes at speed.

What’s better tubeless or clincher?

In our experience, a tubeless tyre is best run 10-20 psi lower than an equivalent clincher tyre with no degradation in performance. As the trend moves towards wider tyres though, being able to safely run reduced pressures makes a lot more sense.
