Challenge named their Paris Roubaix Clincher Tire after that brutal early Spring race in northern Europe, because of the tendency for racers there to use larger, but still race-worthy tires. The name fits because this tire is larger at a 27c width, yet still race worthy, with a supple handmade feel. It might not fit some road bikes, though, with this large size. If you have an endurance, or gravel bike you won't have any such issues. At first install, too, this tire can be tight. Best practice is to mount it without a tube a time or two, and let it stretch some.
Challenge Paris Roubaix Clincher Tire Specifications:
I absolutely love this tire! It fuses a supple casing construction with a grippy tread and an integrated puncture protection strip. There aren't too many tires like this on the market, to be honest. If you have a road bike that can fit these, GET THEM.
I am about 175 lbs and I run this tire with latex inner tubes on 22mm internal rims at about 65-70 psi. They are BIG... they measure out to a true 29-30mm wide. The ride quality is far superior to anything I've previously ridden. The casing and tread is tough enough to survive light gravel riding and the tire is pretty impervious to flats, especially with the latex tubes at a low pressure. The tubes seriously make a difference!
Yeah, they're expensive, and they do wear out faster than a training oriented tire, but life on these has been extremely good thus far. Plus, tan sidewalls. Gotta have 'em.
