World-class, fast rolling and cornering, comfortable, maximum control, higher volume, all-condition tyre for rough or cobbled roads
Having supplied multiple Paris-Roubaix winners and cyclocross world champions over the years Challenge tyres are ready to stand up to rough and unforgiving terrain. The Challenge Handmade Paris Roubaix Pro Road Tyre is no exception with many of the same superb features that have made their tubular tyres the 'go to' for Roubaix and other cobbled races.
This tyre version has a 320 TPI(threads per inch). This high TPI count makes the tyre super-smooth rolling and soft, allowing it to easily glide over rough terrain.
Durability is ensured by the combination of the SuperPoly bead casing and PPS2 puncture protection. These two features act to help prevent punctures, gashes and rips while you traverse adverse terrain. This tyre's 27mm width is ideal for conquering gravelled, paved or cobbled terrain, as the wider footprint of the tyre acts to smooth out bumps and vibrations.

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.
