Last month I upgraded my tires to new Vittoria Rubino Pro, which are folding tires. My previous tires was cheap entry-level clincher tires with steel rings.
Yesterday I had a blowout in my rear wheel while I was riding after noticing a more and more weird feeling in my rear wheel. I have been recalling the moment before I noticed such feeling and the only strange event I remember is that just before it I had passed on a bump in a corner at high speed and it ended in a very strong lateral movement.
My theory is that it moved the tire and the inner tuve found a way out so it exploded. The good point (for safety) is that it did not explode until I stopped the bicycle. The bad point is that such thing has never happened to me and I think it should not normally happen. I believe it should not be normal and it never happened to me with my previous (cheap) tires in similar situations.
I am wondering if I had put too much pressure to the tire (9 bar / 130 psi) and the rim could not hold it or that folding tires are less strong to lateral movements. Please, let me know whether you have experienced something similar and, if possible, how can I prevent it to happen. Thank you very much.
