Challenge Limus Open Cyclocross Tire

The Challenge Limus is increasingly a popular choice with the racing crowd thanks to its aggressive tread and lug design that is one of the few that can hold its own in sticky mud for a distinct cornering advantage. Challenge uses a special 300 tpi casing that allows low pressures down to 30 psi when you really need bit in the corners on uneven terrain. The Limus also works well on a variety of courses reducing the need to change out tires.

Challenge handmade tires achieve their impressive ride quality by gluing the tread onto the casing by hand during the manufacturing process. Most other tires bond the tread to the casing with a high-heat, automated process. The high heat vulcanization process produces a tire where the tread is under tension. This creates a stiffer casing, harder ride, and tread cuts that tend to rapidly expand. Challenge's method of hand gluing the tread to the casing allows the tread to conform to the surface and offers the best performance with the supple, high tpi casing of a premium tire.
