Fast rolling and wet cornering, all around road use
The Challenge VCL Strada Race 700cx25 clincher is a world class, fast rolling and cornering, comfortable, maximum control, all-conditions road tyre. It has a low thread count allowing more vulcanised rubber between the gaps in the nylon mesh, delivering extra durability. The PPS special fabric provides good puncture protection. The 25mm width will fit most modern road bike framesets and tubeless rim combinations.
Puncture Protection System (PPS)
The Puncture Protection System is a special fabric placed between a tire’s tread and casing to increase resistance to punctures. Some Tyres designed for use on rough roads, cobbles and gravel receive PPS2, an additional layer of PPS between the casing and the inner tube.

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.
