The Strada Bianca excels on poor quality pavement, gravel, and dirt roads. It's an almost completely slick tire with only a minimal file tread. As a result it is very fast rolling and offers maximum comfort, thanks to its wide casing.
Compared to Challenge's other gravel tires, Strada Bianca offers the lowest rolling resistance among Almonzo (which has minimal edge knobs) and Gravel Grinder (which offers bigger edge knobs). You'll love the Strada Bianca on bad, bumpy pavement and rides that go from paved to gravel and back again. If your rides have cornering on loose dirt surfaces, check out the Gravel Grinder instead.
