Review - Clement X'Plor USH Tyres

Clement XPlor USH Tyres
​When you're looking for the best tyre for bicycle touring, you're demanding a whole host of attributes... You want a tyre that will grip well and inspire confidence, even when fully loaded. You want a tyre that will roll fast, so you can munch through the miles. You want a tyre that is puncture resistant, because changing a tube on a fully loaded bike is a right faff. Finally, you want a tyre that will last; because by its nature, bicycle touring is hard on your kit.

The new Clement X'Plor USH tyres are part of the 'Adventure' range from the French/ Italian brand. They are tyres designed to excel at back-and-beyond touring; ticking off all the attributes above, in the process. The USH X'Plor model is the 'hard-pack' touring tyre; it features a tread pattern that is at home on asphalt, but equally capable of handling gravel sections.

I selected the Clement X'Plor USH as my tyre option for my upcoming 'Coasts and Cols' tour; it was an easy selection to make - this is a great touring tyre. The smooth centre ridge provides fast rolling speed, whilst the diamond edges give significantly more confidence through the corners than on fully-slick tyres.

Put simply, the Clement X'plor USH tyres deliver on their promise of being a great bicycle touring tyre. I am sure that they'll help me to roll through the 1,900 kilometres of the 'Coasts and Cols' tour, with confidence.
