Challenge Chicane PRO HCL 33
Cicane PRO HCL tyre is an amazing handmade clincher cyclocross tyre. The tread was designed to grip on any surface that a pro cyclocross rider could meet, like wet mud, slippery mud, clay, soup, peanut butter—the list goes on. Challenge is using an extra layer called Puncture Protection Strip (PPS) in their products, to reduce the risk of punctures.
Handmade clinchers are non-vulcanized. It will avoid the heat and pressure process called vulcanization, which most tires undergo in production. It is used to bind the materials but compromises the ride quality when the rubber gets stiffer. Treads are hand-glued onto Challenge Tubulars and Open Tubulars, and the latex and rubber maintain their ideal quality.
