Strada HCL - Best cycling components 2018/2019

"Challenge's Strada Pro Open Tubular is a super-supple tyre designed for racing on rough roads. It's not the quickest tyre I've ridden, but for the battered B roads of Somerset these are ideal for racing, fast riding and even as a summer training tyre."

"Challenge's Strada Pro Open Tubular is a super-supple tyre designed for racing on rough roads.

Open tubular mounting is never great fun and these are a bit of a pain to get on the rims. Once on and inflated, they form into shape making subsequent tube replacements easy.

The ride feel is fabulous and is the reason I'll always choose these supple tyres over a vulcanised tyre, such as Continental's GP4000S II, which can be harder. They simply float over rough roads.

If you're a rider who wants a beautiful tyre that can cope with UK roads, these are a brilliant option. The extra volume they provide along with an exceptional ride quality makes them near perfect in my opinion.
