The Clement MXP Tubular is our newest cyclocross tire that combines an intermediate tread pattern with an innovative tubeless casing to create an excellent all-conditions tubular.
The MXP is named after the airport code for Milan, Italy, a World Cup venue that calls for an all-conditions tire. The name is also a homage to Clement’s Italian pedigree.
The tread is an updated version of the classic Grifo profile first developed by Clement decades ago. Some of the changes include cuts in the central chevrons to allow the tread to flex and more aggressive side knobs with a shape inspired by a soccer cleat. The MXP is designed for a wide variety of conditions and variable surfaces. It excels on grass, loose dirt, sand, moderate mud, hard pack, snow and pavement. If you could only have one cyclocross tire, this is the one to have.
Size: 700 x 33mm
Tread: Center chevrons and staggered side knobs for all-conditions. Soft rubber compound for extra grip and shock absorbtion.
Weight: 370 grams
Tubeless: There is no innertube, instead the entire casing is airtight. This creates a very light-weight tire, but more importantly it is very resistant to punctures. The tire accepts sealant liquid easily, and typical punctures can be quickly sealed from the inside.
Durable: The sidewall is much more durable than traditional tubulars, and is coated with rubber to prevent deterioration from water, mud, and dirt. No additional sidewall coating is neccasary. The tread is manufactured integral with the tire and can’t peel away or become detached from the casing.
High-quality: Every tire is produced in a highly exacting process that creates a very straight tire with no variances in size or alignment.
Ease of Use: The high-quality manufacturing process results in a tubular tire that is much easier to install than other brands. The tire is straight and the base-tape is consistent, providing an easy-to-glue surface that won’t peel away from the casing or become damaged from normal use.
Removable Valve Core: Simple unthread the valve core and use a squeeze bottle or syring to add liquid sealant to the tire to repair most punctures or prevent future punctures.
