Whether you dream of gravel rides in the shadows of the Sapphires or you're lucky enough to call the trails of Missoula's Rattlesnake Recreation Area home, Clement's X'Plor MSO Clincher tire was made for the combination of gravel and road riding that the area is known for a point driven home by the fact that MSO is the airport code for Missoula, Montana. The brand formerly known for its iconic road tires has shown its desire to change with the times, delving into the world of cyclocross with a tire inspired by Montana's winding trails against backdrops of pristine alpine lakes. At home on gravel and hardpack, this fast rolling tire was designed with a smooth, evenly spaced center tread that keeps it feeling quick and responsive with raised shoulder lugs for grip while cornering on unpredictable surfaces like gravel and grass. Clement constructed the tire out of soft rubber to give it consistency and shock absorption on terrain from woodland paths to the 'cross course. At the end of the day, the tire takes on the pavement as well as it does the dirt, so your coast back into town for a cold, frothy beverage with be as smooth and quiet as your day in the mountains.
