Though the cycling industry is prone to radical self reinvention every few years, one thing remains a welcome constant: the supple ride quality of Clement tires. The Strada LGG 60 TPI Clincher Tire lives up to that reputation, albeit with a lower TPI than its more expensive LGG 120 counterpart. The lower TPI means the LGG 60 does take a hit in the suppleness department, but it makes up for it with a longer wear life and more puncture resistance. This being Clement, we're obliged to note that the tire's LGG initialism is a nod to the airport code for Liege. We can't ever hear or read about that city without mentally appending Bastogne Liege to its name. The oldest of the classics, La Doyenne has been held rain or shine or, occasionally, snow check out the unforgiving 2016 edition or the 1980 edition where Hinault dropped a huge, badger shaped hammer on the proceedings over 100 times now, and the Strada LGG's mix of a slightly textured center strip and Clement's shoulder chevrons helps maintain grip in unpredictable spring time conditions. The 60 TPI model features a single compound compared to the LGG 120's dual compound construction. Instead of the latter's softer shoulders, the LGG 60 uses a single, efficiently rolling compound throughout. Using the harder material on the shoulders also adds an additional boost to the tire's longevity, and the addition of a puncture resistant belt helps fend off ride ending debris.
