Racing cyclocross or gravel on dry, fast conditions? Chicane is the answer. It features a file tread in the middle that rolls incredibly fast on pavement, hardpack dirt, and dry grass.
Unlike a traditional file tread, however, Chicane adds aggressive side knobs inspired by the Challenge Limus tire - so it still corners and bites with authority. Consider CrossVegas in the desert of Las Vegas. Totally dry without a hint of moisture - Chicane rules those types of conditions.
Chicane Pro features the classic tubular "look" with black tread and brown sidewalls that stand out, plus these features:
- claimed 415 grams
- PPS anti-puncture
- 300 TPI SuperPoly casing
TECH NOTE: this is a tubular bicycle tire with a captive (stitched-in) latex inner tube (also called a "sew-up".) It must be glued or taped onto a tubular rim for safe use. It will not work on a traditional clincher wheel/rim. Proper setup is essential for your safety - if you are not qualified to install tubular tires, please seek expert guidance first.
