Race it hard or just head off the beaten path. The Strada Bianca wraps Challenge's proven herringbone tread pattern further around a large volume casing and adds a gravel specific construction to take you comfortably over less-than-perfect surfaces. This is your tire for rough roads, packed dirt, and most gravel surfaces. This handmade tubular combines a supple, 1000+ TPI Sealed Silk casing with natural rubber tread, and a seamless latex inner tube for improved comfort, confident cornering, and quick handing. The latex tube is lighter, thinner and more flexible than a butyl tube, increasing your comfort, lowering your rolling resistance, and helping to prevent flats. The tube also includes a removable core Presta valve. This tire includes PPS2, a combination of our sub-tread Puncture Protection System and an additional layer inside the casing to increase resistance to punctures.
