Donnelly Cycling announced a new tubeless-ready clincher version of their classic 33mm PDX cyclocross tire. Meant for muddy conditions, the new tire uses the same tread as its tubular brethren, with tubeless beads and a 240tpi construction.

The PDX was Donnelly’s original tire, launched over a decade ago in tubular trim. Now that the market is evolving with much more tubeless tire use, they developed a brand new PDX WC in tubeless-ready clincher format. With a 240tpi casing and 350 gram weight, it is made at the UCI size limit of 33mm.
The original tubular PDX is still available for purists, but company founder Donn Kellogg said it was time for a new option:
“The idea of the PDX came from my passion for cyclocross and to provide racers with a superior mud tire. It’s hard to believe this tire has been in use for more than a decade with out needing a change. I could not be more excited about this enhancement.”
The PDX WC will be available initially with tan sidewalls, with an all-black version to follow. Both will retail for $80 USD. Donnelly also plans to release LAS and MXP versions later this year.
