Q: Which direction should I install the PDX cyclocross tires?
A: We prefer to install the PDX (and most tires) so the arrow-shaped knobs in the center of the tire face forward when viewed from the top. This is true for both front and rear tires. Some riders may install them differently to get different traction characteristics and that’s perfectly OK!
Q: Which direction should I install the LAS cyclocross tires?
A: Just like the PDX, we mount the LAS so the arrow-shaped knobs on the shoulder face forward when viewed from the top.
Q: How wide are the cyclocross tires?
A: All our ‘cross tires (LAS and PDX clinchers and tubulars) measure 33 mm wide on an average rim at average pressure. Slight differences in width may occur on especially wide or narrow rims, or at different pressures. Tubular width is less effected less by rim width. Clinchers may run slightly wider than 33 due to manufacturing variances. New tires are sometimes slightly narrower, and will become wider by about 1-2 mm after being inflated for a couple days.
Q: What air pressure should I use in Clement tires?
A: Pressure is an important factor that determines a tire’s performance. But it is impossible to say exactly what pressure will be right for you. The ideal pressure depends upon a combination of factors that include rider weight, tire type and size, riding conditions, and rider preferences. A hand-held tire pressure gauge will help you learn what tire pressure works best for you. Carry one in your pocket for a few rides to experiment with different pressures and combinations. This will help you know exactly what works best for different tires and conditions.
Q: How do you glue cyclocross tubulars?
A: See our favorite how-to articles here.
Q: Should I add liquid sealant to the cyclocross tubulars?
A: See our complete tips for sealant here.
Q: Do I need to coat the sidewalls of Clement cyclocross tubulars with weather-proofing sealant?
A: Our tubular tires feature a pre-coated sidewall and do not require sidewall sealant.
Q: Where can I find media reviews of Clement tires?
