4-season ELITE XP joins Challenge road range!

Introducing the NEW Elite XP Handmade Clincher

Based on rider feedback, the Challenge Elite clincher has evolved. Now you can have a road tire with “the best of both worlds” - a fast rolling, comfortable ride due to the handmade construction, and a more robust construction. The ELITE XP provides durability paired with performance.

The ELITE XP provides:

  • Excellent cut & puncture-resistant due to both our GANZO PPS under the tread and our CORAZZA Armor for improved sidewall protection.
  • A higher mileage, grippy, natural SMARTplus tread compound that handles wet and dry conditions while not compromising the quality of handmade comfort and suppleness.
  • A proven tread design known for great handling and grip.

ELITE XP is a reliable tire designed to meet your needs during demanding training, Sunday rides & tours, or just fast urban commuting. This is your 4-season, year-around tire.

The ELITE XP is available in both 25 & 27mm Handmade Clincher (H-CL) in line with ETRTO guidelines and retails for € 44.90 / USD51.99. A quality, sturdy tire at a great price!
