Your search for an intermediate, all-conditions 'cross tire is over! Challenge's Chicane can tackle it all, whether the course is dry and fast, or thick with mud. The grippy side knobs ensure you stay upright in every technical turn, and the center file tread rolls fast and smooth. It's built on Challenge's light and supple 300tpi hand-made SuperPoly casing with polyester-reinforced sidewalls, and there's an anti-puncture strip under the tread. Open tubular tires feature many benefits of traditional tubular tires, but with the low maintenance and ease of installation of clincher tires.
