Introducing cyclo-cross tires
When you're riding a cyclo-cross bike, you need a tire that can handle the rigors of off-road riding. Cyclo-cross tires are specially designed for cyclo-cross bicycles.
Cyclocross tires are available in a variety of widths, tread patterns, and compounds to suit your riding style and conditions. They're often used for riding in wet conditions, but they can be used for a variety of other conditions as well.
The tread on cyclo-cross tires is often knobby, with a pattern of alternating deep and shallow grooves, which helps them grip the road when it's wet. This deep tread pattern with three center knobs provides most of your contact surface with the ground, while still letting you maintain a smooth ride.
The maximum permitted width in UCI-sanctioned cyclo-cross races is 33mm, though some brands may make them slightly wider or narrower than that. The width can go even up to 45 mm. The further it goes from 33 mm they are considered gravel. How wide you will go depends on the clearance you have on the bike fork, the size of the wheel, the type of the wheel and the intended use.
Cyclo-cross tires come in all three options of bike tires and wheels: tubular – the most popular, then tubeless, and clincher as the least popular.
If you're looking for wheels that are going to take your cyclo-cross bicycle to the next level, look no further. We've got a full range of cyclo-cross tires that are designed to be lightweight, so they're easy on your bike and easy on your wallet.
