Ready for an adventure.

Whether you dream of gravel rides in the shadows of the Sapphires or you're lucky enough to call the trails of Missoula's Rattlesnake Recreation Area home, Clement's X'Plor MSO Clincher tire was made for the combination of gravel and road riding that the area is known for — a point driven home by the fact that MSO is the airport code for Missoula, Montana. The brand formerly known for its iconic road tires has shown its desire to change with the times, delving into the world of cyclocross with a tire inspired by Montana's winding trails against backdrops of pristine alpine lakes.

At home on gravel and hardpack, this fast-rolling tire was designed with a smooth, evenly-spaced center tread that keeps it feeling quick and responsive with raised shoulder lugs for grip while cornering on unpredictable surfaces like gravel and grass. Clement constructed the tire out of soft rubber to give it consistency and shock absorption on terrain from woodland paths to the 'cross course. At the end of the day, the tire takes on the pavement as well as it does the dirt, so your coast back into town for a cold, frothy beverage with be as smooth and quiet as your day in the mountains.

Love these tires

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like these tires on my Surly Cross Check commuter.
They offer a much wider range of riding experience due to the light knobbyish tread pattern, but I did not feel that the road experience suffered at all because of this tread pattern.

Best all around tire available

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Excellent all around road/cross tire. Super fast rolling so you don't feel slower on the road and gives you very capable off road performance too.

Avg. ride time: 2h 19m per week

Mama said they's my magic shoes; mama said they'd take me anywhere.

These are stellar tires! I've now trusted the MSOs now for a slew of terrains, and they haven't let me down yet.

They've survived everything from pavement, all the way to the back-road, badlands of Moab.

The tread preforms extremely well in loose terrain from sand, to gravel, to scree. And the lugs that hang close to the sidewall really help keep you on the trail in loose corners. You dont have to worry about any extra work when hitting the pavement either, because the closer, interlocking tread on the center offers all the rolling resistance of a road tire. They also preform very well in wet conditions, channeling the water out and providing proper contact with the pavement or rock. I've even had some experience with them in snow (a bit slippery on ice, but what tires don't without studs).

I highly recommend these as a must for your favorite gravel grinder; or even as an option to tackle commuting the urban terrain of your city's streets.

For whatever is thrown at you.

You mama is indeed correct.:-)
I have a set of 700X36, and they are great tires.
