Time to test new rubber

Bike Tires Direct were having a sale on Clement CX tires and they were dirt cheap so I decided to give them a try. I raced on Clement tubular tires back in the 80’s and always had a fondness for them.  First impressions are that they feel really light, run very true and roll quickly. I will update my thoughts after I have had more time on them, 60PSI for road feels just about perfect.

“Clément is back in the game with the quick rolling LAS Cyclocross Tire. Taking its name from CrossVegas–the most entertaining and exciting cyclocross race in the US, the LAS delivers blazing speeds on grass and hard-packed dirt.

A unique nail file tread pattern is short and fine at the center of the tire and gets progressively taller and coarser as it approaches the shoulder knobs. The result is a tire that handles predictably in corners and rough conditions while keeping rolling resistance to an absolute minimum. Additional side knobs are lifted straight from the more aggressive Crusade PDX model to ensure complete cornering confidence. 120 TPI casing. 45-75 recommended PSI. Folding bead. 700c x 33mm (33-622 ISO). Available in All Black or All White. 350g. [Bike Tires Direct]”
