Clement expands tire offerings with new cyclocross, gravel and road models

Published March 23, 2016

TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Clement has introduced the most new tire models in the brand's recent history, with five new tubeless versions and new cyclocross, gravel and road tires.

For cyclocross, the PDX and MXP models will each be available in tubeless versions for the first time, in addition to tubular and tube versions.

New to the 'cross line-up is the BOS model, bearing the three-letter code for Boston's Logan airport. The 33mm tire is designed for even messier cyclocross conditions than the PDX model (named for Portland's airport), with 1.3 mm taller knobs overall and buttress-supported side knobs for turning and sideslope traction in mud. The BOS will be available in a tubular version by fall.

The BOS weighs 397 grams in the tubeless-ready version. The tubular version will retail for $130; tubeless-ready is $70 and the tube version is $50. 

Clement also added several new gravel tires using a new tubeless casing. The MSO line is now available in a new 36 mm size in both tubeless and tube versions.

The new Strada USH tire is a cross between the Strada LGG road tire and the X'plor USH gravel tire; it combines a fast-rolling center track with an aggressive herringbone tread for turning grip, and is intended for everything from commuting to adventure riding. The Strada USH will be offered in 32mm  in both tubeless and tube versions.  

The Strada USH also will be available in a 650b x 42 size in June. 

Clement also is launching a push into the more traditional road tire market. In December, the brand released its LCV road line, named after the Italian town of Lucca.

The LCV line is positioned as a high performance, competition-level road tire. It has a vulcanized 240 TPI casing that incorporates varying thread counts that the company said gives the tire both tough and supple qualities simultaneously.  The 180 gram tire (700 x 23) has integrated puncture protection.

The LCV road clincher is available in sizes 23, 25 and 28 x 700 and retails for $75.


The new BOS tread is for Boston-style mud.
