Challenge launches new handmade, tubeless-ready gravel tire, the GETAWAY

Published December 21, 2020

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (BRAIN) — Challenge Tire's new GETAWAY model is intended to be an all-around gravel tire with a handmade tubeless-ready construction.

Challenge said the tire's tread "includes a tightly packed, fast-rolling center for straight-line control and speed, open transition knobs for either sandy or wet terrain, and more aggressive shoulder knobs for controlled cornering and stability in loose conditions."

The GETAWAY includes a double layer 260TPI SuperPoly casing, which Challenge said provide sidewall protection while retaining a very supple and comfortable ride. There is also a bead-to-bead latex-based inner coating to improve puncture protection and reduce air leakage.

A new "GANZO PPS" puncture protection system uses a flexible, tight weave, multi-component puncture protection fabric placed between the tread and the casing. 

The gravel-specific tread includes a high durometer, natural rubber SMARTplus compound. The GETAWAY includes a bead protection strip to reduce the effects of chafing, or rubbing, that can occur with a rim's carbon bead hooks. The contrasting black chafer also acts as a precise line around the rim to confirm that the tire has obtained uniform bead seating all-around.

It's available in 700x40, with a black tread and tan casing. Weight is 460 grams. Retail Price $85.99. More information:
