• 2011/11/01 COMING SOON: New MTB ONE tubular for MTB
    • Thanks to the long lasting experience on developing tires for the worst conditions on cycloross races, Challenge is now introducing the first tubular for Mountain Bike in his product line.

      There are clear advantages in riding tubulars on MTB. You can lower the tire pressure for the best grip to less than 2 bars without damaging the tubular. Infact, the rim has no flanges that can esily cut the tire side when bumping on asperities. The tubular is firmly glued to the wheel, there is no chance to see the tire falling off the rim when riding at low pressure, and, the tubular wheel is lighter.

      Initially one model will be available, but more will follow. For sure, Challenge tires is determinated in looking into this growing market and make high quality products, with the same passion and thanks to the same experience that have brought Challenge brand in the leadership of cyclocross.

      Here you can see a 3D drawing of the new MTB ONE tread design. Available in the market for 26" and 29" wheels. Information on availability will follow as soon as possible.
