Top 4 – Clincher Road Tyres

Clinchers are almost certainly the most popular choice of tyre. They’re simple to install, dependable and allow you to quickly replace an innertube should you be unfortunate enough to puncture while out training. These days, however, it’s becoming increasingly common to see clincher road tyres in races. They’re faster, lighter, more puncture resistant and grippier than ever before. Below are five of our favourites clincher tyres on the market.

    Vittoria Corsa G+ Clincher Graphene Road Tyre

    The reviews speak for themselves, the Vittoria Corsa G+ is undoubtedly the biggest rival on the road tyre market to the GP 4000s II. Vittoria has managed to produce a tyre that’s durable and protective enough for training without compromising on speed and grip, which are essential for racing.

    Key Features

    • Cotton casing – similar to that found in tubular tyres, it’s supple and increases comfort.
    • G+ compound for superb puncture protection and decreased rolling resistance.
    • Intelligent Tyre System (ITS) – compounds become harder and softer, depending on the conditions and rider.
