Durable, excellent value training and racing tyre for rough, wet roads
The Elite Pro is a handmade clincher tyre with the Challenge SuperPoly casing and a kevlar, folding bead. It is intended for use on the road, whether that is for training or racing purposes. The SuperPoly casing is made from polyester and is designed for durability. The natural rubber used to make the tread provides superior grip. A layer of uniquely-crafted fabric with highly resistant properties sits between the casing and the tire to reduce the risk of punctures.
This folding tire with a 260 TPI casing is very supple and provides a very low rolling resistance. So it is a comfortable tire especially for long stage races. With Puncture Protection Strip (PPS), which is an extra layer of highly resistant material between the casing and the tire to reduce the risk of punctures.

Why choose Challenge? What’s the point in training till you drop if you’re going to be losing efficiency and speed in your tires?
Ride quality is paramount, and no other tire offers the supple, responsive traction of a Challenge tubular, eliminating barriers in achieving your maximum speed and potential. Supple tires not only offer a sublime ride, they reduce rolling resistance, and enable more precise handling and a greater range of pressures. They adapt quickly as the tire changes shape while cornering and rolling, which increases road surface contact and grip while cornering, plus shock absorption as you pass over irregularities in the road. We make Challenge Handmade Tires 100% in our family-owned factory in Thailand, 90 minutes down the coast from Bangkok. We are in Thailand because that is where our natural rubber and latex is sourced, where we can control the raw materials and where the world’s rubber and latex experts work.
Challenge tires' high-end, flexible casing provides superior grip and comfort with higher speed due to its lower rolling resistance. Challenge offer clincher or tubular options for Road, Gravel and Cyclo-Cross and in 2019 introduce some Tubeless (TLR) options in their range.
