As the name suggests, the new Dugast Small Bird is similar to the company's Fast Bird mountain bike tubular with sharp, hook-shaped knobs derived from the mud-slaying Rhino but with knob heights and sizes varying across the width of the tire.

Billed as a sort of hybrid between the current Typhoon and Rhino treads, the Small Bird is Dugast's first 'cross tubular with a dual-compound tread - and it's already been used to win U-23, Elite and Junior races at the recent World Cup in Tabor, Czech Republic.

The Small Bird's side knobs are tall and stout to pierce through softer ground and provide a firm, secure shoulder for attacking corners - just like the Rhino.

However, the knob height and size decrease progressively as you move toward the center of the tread in order to provide a faster roller and less knob squirm when on harder ground. In addition, the Small Bird is the first tire from Dugast to sport a dual-compound tread with harder and faster rubber down the center mixed with a softer and grippier compound on the sides.

You're reviewing: Dugast Small Bird Tubular

Dugast tubulars are truly hand constructed the "old fashioned" way. This produces a tire that is second to none.

Andre Dugast started with Dourdoigne in 1952 and branched out on his own in 1974, just three years before Dourdoigne closed their doors forever. He has seen the rise and fall of all the modern champions, and made tubulars for most of them. At its height, the Andre Dugast Company employed 6 people. Today he works alone and is one of the masters of a dying art.

Dugast casings define what supple means. In Europe, Top pro's run these at unthinkable low pressures. A top notch glue job is critical when rolling around the course at 25 psi! Dugast tires are designed for classic European style cross courses. This means grassy fields (generally smooth) with a combination of pavement. In UK cyclocross the Dugast Rhino and Dugast Typhoon are by far the most popular for light to heavy mud.
