Customer reviews for Challenge Paris-Roubaix 27 Open 700C Folding Clincher Road Tyre

Challenge Paris-Roubaix 27 Open 700C Folding Clincher Road Tyre

Open tubular differ from traditional clinchers for the construction. The Tyre is produced just like a tubular and uses the same materials and production process. Instead of being sewed with an inner tube inside, at the end of the process beads are made by folding the casing around Aramid fibres threads. For this reason an open tubular gives very similar ride feel of that of a tubular, mainly if a latex inner tube is used. Mounting an open tubular on a wheel is the same as mounting a standard clincher but with the advantage of riding a much more comfortable and performing tyre.

Nice fat tire comfy ride

Posted09 May 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: fit is tight
Pros very comfy tire to ride, rolls very well, weight is acceptable , when mounted on fulcrum racing 3 wheels it measures 29mm. No flats so far .
Cons only one , it is very very difficult to mount on the fulcrum racing 3. Broke 4 plastic tire lever do so, it's really very tight.
I would highly recommend this product as long as you can get pass the mounting of the tire
