The Grifo, evolved.
Never heard of Clement before? In the US of A, the name isn't as widely circulated as some of the bigger rubber brands, but in Europe, its reputation was long-ago solidified as procurers of some of the finest tires available. Makes sense, then, that the very Euro sport of cyclocross, as it rises in popularity in the States, ushers in "new" brands like Clement. The Clement MXP Clincher is an example of the knowhow that the company brings to the table.
Based on its famous Grifo tread, the MXP is Clement's new definitive all-rounder. Designed to be your tire if you can only choose one tread for all conditions, the MXP's center track of clovers and chevrons is designed for low rolling resistance on pavement or hardpack, but it also digs in a bit when things loosen up. For when the going gets really rough, the larger, more aggressive side knobs — whose design was inspired by soccer cleats — grab the earth and don't let go. The MXP wasn't designed to be the single best tire in any one type of course or terrain, but for everything, from tarmac to muddy snow, the tire is there to make sure you get through it, and fast.
The Clement MXP Clincher Tire comes in size 700c x 33mm and in the color Black. Clement recommends against setting their clincher tires up as tubeless, because liquid sealants can corrode the interior of the tire.

Fast and Smooth
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
They say that smooth is fast. These tires prove that. Not particularly a mud tire, and not a file tread, but good for everything in between. doesn't gather mud and dirt, and rolls well on super buff stuff as well.
Good for what you want it for. Just keep it out of soft sticky mud. Fast on the road, fast on dirt. Works well even in wet grass.
