K IS for Knob­bly tyres

Cycling Weekly - - FEATURE -

Five fan­tas­tic op­tions:

Du­gast Small Bird, £65 You know Du­gast is the real deal by its pre­ten­tiously un­pre­ten­tious logo stamp. Promis­ing suit­abil­ity in a va­ri­ety of con­di­tions, this re­cently in­tro­duced tubu­lar is the com­pany’s first dual-com­pound of­fer­ing.

Chal­lenge Griffo

Pro, £60

Sup­ple yet ro­bust, this hand­made clincher is about as close as you get to rid­ing on tubs with­out hav­ing to spend the pre­vi­ous evening stick­ing your fin­gers to­gether.

Sch­walbe CX Pro, £23.49

Great do-all rac­ing clincher po­si­tioned to­wards the friend­lier end of the mar­ket. Black side­walls mean less scrub­bing them clean.

FMB Su­per Mud Pro, £100

An­other con­nois­seur’s tubu­lar from a bou­tique brand; brightly coloured and re­as­sur­ingly hard to find. Does a su­perb job shed­ding mud when con­di­tions get ex­treme.

Don­nelly LAS, £35 For­merly mar­keted un­der the clas­sic Cle­ment brand and named af­ter the fast and fa­mous Cross Ve­gas race, a proven file-tread clincher for those early-sea­son ‘grass cri­teri­ums’.
