Tough rides call for tough tires, so if you're hitting the cobbles you better have Challenge's Paris Roubaix Tubular glued on your wheels. It has a wide profile to take the sting out of rough pavement and dirt roads, and puncture protection under the tread. It's hand made on their light and supple 300tpi SuperPoly casing with polyester-reinforced sidewalls, and a durable tread compound that sticks to the road in the corners. These tires also use latex tubes which are lighter, thinner, and more flexible than butyl tubes, increasing your comfort, lowering rolling resistance, and helping to prevent flats, too.
- Handmade tires combine many attributes to create the most comfortable and lowest rolling resistance tires.
- Latex tubes are stronger, lighter, super supple, absorb shock, and conform precisely to terrain, reducing rolling resistance.
- The Puncture Protection Strip is a special fabric placed between a tire's tread and casing to increase resistance to punctures. Designed for rough roads and gravel, PPS2 tires have an additional protection layer between the casing and the inner tube.
