It’s been a long time coming, but the new Clement X’plor MSO 700×36 is more than just a new size, it’s the brand’s first tubeless ready tire.
Compared to the current 32 and 40 width X’plor MSO tires, which remain tube type for now, the tubeless ready version’s sidewall and bead are completely different. The sidewall has more rubber content to make it airtight and improve the supple nature of the tire. The bead is thicker, but not squared off. A protective belt runs bead to bead to reduce the likelihood of punctures.
Available in November, claimed weight is 425g and price is $75. There’ll also be a 60tpi tube type in the new 700×36 size. Look for the MXP and PDX tubeless ready versions to follow in February. Also shown above is the Strada LGG in its new 32 width, which also hits in November.
The Clement LCV is a new road tire named for Lucca, Italy. It’s a standard tube type tire that weighs in at 200g for the 700x25c. Casing is 240tpi with a protective belt under the tread. It’s designed to be a high end racing tire that’ll cost $80. Available in 23, 25 and 28 widths.
Not shown, a new Strada USH will be coming soon. It won’t have quite as aggressive of a side tread as the X’plor USH, but keeps the fast rolling center section like the regular USH. Look for it next spring as a tubeless ready 700×32.
Another new tire is the BOS (Boston) wet weather cyclocross tire with deeper, more aggressive paddle-like center treads than the PDX. Will come in tubeless ready and tubular in February.
