Almanzo Open Gravel Black/White 700c Tyre 33mm (Ex-Demo / Ex-Display). This is an ex display Tyre which has some minor cosmetic marks and the original packaging is missing. Please see image(s).
The Almanzo Open Gravel 700c Tyre from Challenge is designed with gravel racing in mind. The tread pattern has been tested and proven in the Paris-Roubaix road race and features the new PPS-2 double puncture protection strip for better protection against tacks and other sharp objects. This tyre gives better traction and cornering in loose-pack gravel with a comfortable casing volume, allowing better comfort, control and handling. Available in Black/Black or Black/Tan.
Open Tubulars mount like a standard clincher, but are made using the same artisan Handmade process as the Challenge Tubulars and maintain most of the suppleness and ride quality gained from a Handmade Tubular. But ultimately, the major difference between a Handmade Tubular or Open Tubular and the majority of clinchers is that it will avoid the heat and pressure process called vulcanization, which most tires undergo in production. This process binds the materials, but at the same time compromises the ride quality when the rubber gets stiffer. Because Treads are hand-glued onto Challenge Tubulars and Open Tubulars, this means that the latex and rubber can continue to be more flexible and supple, maintaining their ideal quality.
Ex-Display parts, accessories and clothing are items that have very slight imperfections or have picked up minor cosmetic marks in store, in storage or in transit. The vast majority of Ex-Demo items will have had minimal usage only, but individual listings and images will make this clear. On rare occasions parts are missing and we would have been unable to source the exact original fittings, but with some suitable replacements from your spares or a reputable hardware supplier, these could be restored to full working condition. Please read the defects description and view the images for full details on each item. These items are only available for online mail order purchase or Click & Collect, and we are unable to supply these items internationally.
