Last Lap, Make It Count

The Challenge Criterium RS TLR Tire aims to enhance the perfect mix of speed, grip and durability, while at the same time providing refined control and shock absorption capabilities thanks to its handmade construction. The Criterium RS comes in a 350tpi Corespun Cotton casing that optimizes weight and comfort. And with the new SMART PRIME compound it becomes one of the lowest rolling resistance tires on the market.

This new compound consistently increases grip in both dry and wet conditions and significantly reduces rolling resistance. It is flexible and shock-absorbing at the same time, bringing the overall tire performance to new levels of safety. SMART PRIME compound stands out where other materials fail, keeping its properties intact under great stress.

Since the beginning Challenge's premise has been to develop bicycle tires that can deliver a premium experience to cycling enthusiasts, amateurs and professional athletes alike. Being an innovative force in the market, Challenge offers a wide range of high-end handmade performance tires, in different disciplines including but not limited to Cyclocross, Gravel, and Road that have created a legacy of champions and utmost customer satisfaction.
