CHALLENGE OPEN TUBULAR HAND MADE:

Open tubular differ from traditional clinchers for the construction. The Tyre is produced just like a tubular and uses the same materials and production process. Instead of being sewed with an inner tube inside, at the end of the process beads are made by folding the casing around Aramid fibers threads. For this reason an open tubular gives very similar ride feel of that of a tubular, mainly if a latex inner tube is used.

Mounting an open tubular on a wheel is the same as mounting a standard clincher but with the advantage of riding a much more comfortable and performing tyre.

You're reviewing: Challenge Open Road Elite 23c Tyres

The Challenge story begins in 1985 when Italian company Brewo Italia begins selling and servicing Italian products including Clement tyres. In 1990 Vittoria and Clement move to Thailand to cut costs. In 1998 the Thailand factory closes but the following year the owner of Brewo Italia buys and re-constructs the factory so he can continue supplying tyres.

In 2003 after failing to reach an agreement with Pirelli for use of the Clement trademark, the owner and his son create their own brand named Challenge to produce and sell tubulars and open tubulars. In 2005 the original molds for the famous Grifo, Criterium, Paris-Roubaix, Crono and Pista are joined by new innovative treads like Grifo XS and Strada.

In 2006 Challenge creates an innovative process to produce the worlds first seamless latex inner tube and Erwin Vervecken wins the Cyclocross World Championships on Challenge. In 2008 Challenge release the Fango tread and 2009 sees them expand the open tubular range with the Forte, Triathlon and Fango treads made.

By 2014 Challenge have introduced the Chicane cyclocross tyre and now makes the 320TPI Corespun Cotton casing Team Edition Grifo and Limus tyres available to the public.
