You've seen them at your local race course, or while live-streaming the cyclocross World Cup: eye-catching tubular tires with distinctive white sidewalls. What are those tires, exactly?
The tires with the white sidewalls are the Team Edition S3 line from Challenge. In addition to being available to sponsored athletes, they're also available to amateurs in the United States. Let's take a look at some of the features of the Team Edition S3 tire line, and find out if they're right for you.
Challenge's "S3" label includes 3 primary features: Supple, Sealed, and Soft - important features for both pro athletes and privateer amateurs.
In addition to the supple, sealed, soft features, each Team Edition S3 tubular tire also includes the Challenge PPS puncture protection system to help prevent flats.
The S3 is available in all popular tread styles, including the Grifo, Limus, Baby Limus, and Chicane, to suit every possible terrain and weather condition a rider may encounter.
Over the years you've seen the Team Edition S3 tires underneath elite athletes like Stephen Hyde, Ellen Van Loy, and Helen Wyman.
The S3 Team Edition line from Challenge is the choice of riders who want a no-compromise, race-day-only option. Because the sealed sidewalls are standard, they're idea for riders who race in wet and muddy conditions that require repeated bike washing.
