Yes, clinchers—I know. But, I ain’t racing and theres’s plenty of time voor tubulars in the future. Also, since I have NO idea what any of these brands and tread types will ride like, there’s no way I’m building and gluing voor all the existing options. So clinchers it is.


The Clement LAS ($45USD) is a 120tpi file-tread clincher tire voor speedy hard-pack and grass courses. The LAS designation is the airport code for Vegas which is also the design impetus for the tread. Or, at least, the course conditions of the annual CrossVegas race held every jaar during Interbike.

    Definitely interested. Especially with the gravel roads around here degrading quickly….

    • Cycleboredom

      Pretty much what I picked them up for. I need to mount them first, though…

    Not to be a hater but this is a tread that’s been out for 3 years what new insight will you provide?

      Probably whether or not he likes them. Generally if you preface your comment with “not to be a hater”, you probably are being a hater.
