FAQ – Bike Tyres TUFO 2021

Bike Tyres TUFO

TUFO Company History

TUFO was founded in Czechoslovakia in 1991 on the wave of social and political changes that accompanied the collapse of the previous political system. The TUFO company was founded by former cyclist Miloslav KLABAL. He built his first tyre on 13 January 1991.

The company started to grow and Miloslav KLABAL hired his first five employees after several modifications and extensions to the production equipment he had installed in his garden house.

Initially, they sold their TUFO bicycle tyres in the immediate area, then started shipping them throughout Czechoslovakia to begin exporting their products to the United States in 1992.

TUFO Bicycle Tyres – 3 decades of experience

In retrospect, it has become clear that the US market was crucial for a strong and stable introduction of TUFO tyres and products to the global market.

From the very beginning, the company has paid strong and special attention to the high quality of its products. TUFO bicycle tyres undergo rigorous checks on every component during production, and the company tests its products in its own dynamic testing laboratory.

TUFO bicycle tyres – 1993 – Otrokovice

TUFO acquired larger production and office space in Otrokovice in 1993. This year, the company has also expanded its range to include TUFO sealant and TUFO adhesive tape for gluing tubulars to rims.

In the same year, TUFO launched and patented an innovative solution for bicycle tyres as the first in the world. This was commonly referred to as a tubular clincher tyre.

TUFO bicycle tyres in Australia and Japan

In 1994, the company successfully entered the Australian and Japanese markets and gradually gained partners in more Asian countries. In parallel, the company grew very well in the United States. TUFO bicycle tyres and other products gradually covered other branches of cycling.

Further development of company headquarters and capacity for TUFO bicycle tyre production

In the following years TUFO bought the previously rented office and production premises in Otrokovice in the Czech Republic. In 1996, it also began construction of its new headquarters with production, storage and office space.

Thanks to the company’s further growth, it expanded its production area to its current size in 2006. And in 2008, the company invested in and bought the old production building at the original Baťa plant in Zléwsie and started development and production of bicycle tyres there.

In the following years, the company set up a modern physico-mechanical laboratory. And thanks to research and product development, in 2018 TUFO added tubeless tyres to its portfolio.
