Gravel Tires - Cyclocross Tubular
Description

If you ride tubular tires for cyclocross, you just know- as great as some tubeless and clincher tires may be, the best ground interaction and rider control come from the supple and conforming nature of a well-made tubular tire. All of the big names in cyclocross tubulars follow a similar design ethos. Challenge executes their Team Edition tubulars with a super supple, yet strong 320 TPI Sealed Cotton CoreSpun casing. The S3 designation of the Team Edition models speaks to the Sealed casing, Softer tread rubber compound, and incredible overall Suppleness fully centered around the natural properties of a latex inner tube system. By adding correspondingly supple PPS protection belt, the Baby Limus Team Edition Tubular offers grip and control on rocks and rougher surfaces with less fear of a puncture.

While the Limus is a pure mud tire, the Baby Limus has been designed for races with constantly changing conditions; ready to take on wet sand, sticky mud, or dry, fast, packed courses. It achieves this with a similar tread knob shape, but is more aggressive overall with tightly spaced, softer knobs than it's Limus parent tread. The shoulder knobs are a bit taller for more edge control and all-pressure grip. With this tread system the rider can cut through just about anything that requires real traction and grip while maintaining more speed. With a 22-35 psi pressure range, you can truly find the proper set-up for any course and terrain condition, barring a true dry hardpack environment.
