The CX racing clincher.
The Cyclocross race makes its case with a voluminous 35 mm carcass and has a racer’s heart beat. It promises the convenience of riding tubulars without having to deal with the cumbersome cement. Even at low air pressure, perfect balance between grip, comfort and low rolling resistance is provided.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mettler Definitely worth having
Bought to cover a range of surfaces. On the loose over hardpack they do a good job. In mud they're ok - they slide a bit at first but eventually dig through the slop to the hard stuff below. In the wet they give confidence. On tarmac they wear down quickly but I ride to the forest which means using some roads so thats my own fault. Managed to get a flat on a trail within the first 80 miles so maybe not too puncture resistant but it was a pretty big thorn. All in - pretty much what I expected from a tread pattern like that and for the price I'm more than happy.
