The Challenge Pista Tubular Track Tyre is designed specifically for use on the Track, to perform to the highest level, roll the fastest and help get you to the podium first.
Optimised to provide exceptional rolling performance with minimal resistance, it rolls at an unmatched rate. The tread profile supplies superb grip, which in turn offers exceptional rider confidence when racing around the velodrome. Built for world-class performance, this tyre uses its aerodynamic handmade tubulars and clinchers to give you smooth performance on wooden indoor tracks.
Challenge Handmade Clinchers (HCL): These Handmade Clinchers are made from the same materials and processes as our handmade tubulars but instead of sewing an inner tube inside the casing is wrapped around an aramid bead to form a tyre that fits on a clincher rim. The HCL is moulded flat, not in a horseshoe like a TLR or VCL. This shape allows the casing to naturally deform over surface imperfections and minimize rolling resistance. A tubeless tire is moulded in a U-shape to make the sidewalls rigid, so the system does not “burp” or lose air when it deforms after it encounters a surface imperfection. The tubeless tire’s stiff sidewall compromises its ability to equal a supple HCL with a latex inner tube.
In 2003 Challengetech created its own brand “Challenge”. Challenge, as the word says, wants to point out how difficult and exciting it is to keep the tradition of high quality products, created with obstinacy, with the steady research of special materials and through handcrafted processes. Since the 2000s, Challengetech has being producing tubulars for other brands, thanks to the constant use of these products in the professional cycling.
