If you aren't ready to make the leap to tubulars, that's OK - Challenge still has a full line of traditional clincher (i.e. tire meant to be used with an inner tube inside) tires that are ready to tackle any cyclocross race course.
This 120 TPI "Race" version of their Chicane tread is ideal for the hard, dry, fast courses that dominate the American southwest. Think the SoCalCross series or CrossVegas where desert temperatures dominate and the courses don't have any wet/muddy conditions. In the middle of the Chicane you'll find a file-type tread that rolls incredibly fast in these dry conditions, while on the outside, you'll find aggressive edge knobs so you still have cornering grip.
This is not a tubeless tire - it is designed for use on a traditional clincher rim with an inner tube.
