Description

Description

The Challenge Grifo is a handmade Italian cyclocross folding tyre of professional quality. In combination with a latex inner tube this tyre approximates the quality of a tube, but with the comfort of a clincher!

The feel, flexibility and stability of this tyre feel extremely good. It is the perfect training tyre, which feels just as at home at competitions.

Fantastic tyre

- George 3 October 2019

I used these tyres all of last year for cyclocross and they are fantastic. It is a great all rounder and coped with pretty much everything all season.

Pros & Cons

Beautiful ride
Well made
Hard to get onto the wheel when new. THUMBS!
Sore thumbs

4 / 5

great cx tyres close to a tubular

- STEPHEN 13 February 2019

Hi quality tyre , very flexible ideal for cyclocross or gravel trails Patience is require to fit these tyres due to the construction design but when fitted give a compliant ride ,recommend latex tubes with this product

Pros & Cons

4 / 5

Great all round grip

- Stuart 22 September 2018

This tyre is almost perfect for multi surface cyclo cross racing. Good in most conditions and most surfaces bar deep mud. My only gripe, and why I can't give 10/10 is the fact it will not stay on my Stans Alpha rims due to the year drop shaped bead! Fine on every other rim I have tried but the slightest pressure from a dropped curb, cycle cross hurdle or flying remount pops it straight off the rim. My Scwalbe 1 tyres and Clement pdx don't have this issue.

Pros & Cons

Great grip
Multi conditions
Multi weather
Supple
Not "officially" tubeless
Will not stay on Stans Alpha rim

5 / 5

Great choice of tyre for autumn Cx

- Robert 18 September 2018

I tend to really research the hell out of every product I buy. I went through all sorts of forums, took advice and it always pointed to these tyres. Yes they are a few quid more than your next best tyre but to get what you pay for. Silky ride and great grip. I used them with latex tubes and can not fault the ride. Mantel best the opposition by about £5 per tyre. Well packaged and well received. I’ll be getting some Limus’ for the really muddy stuff in November.

Pros & Cons

Fast roling
Light
Look great
Silky feel
Hard to get on first time

5 / 5

The best tyre for most conditions

- Craig 10 September 2018

The Challenge Grifo open tubular is my choice of tyre for all occasions until the real thick mud arrives and can be run at low pressure when fitted with the challenge latex cx tubes with less chance of pinch punctures they also look cool on the bike

Pros & Cons

Grip
Lookrun at low pressure
Can be hard to fit
Have to be clean straight away to keep side walls
