I would appreciate advice on CX clincher tyres please. I'm new to cross racing and not entirely sure which tyres to go for. I can't afford tubs. Might be able to go tubeless down the line.
Currently using 35mm Kenda Kommandos on my 29er but they seem to best in proper wet and muddy conditions so looking for something a little more capable all round.
I've read that Challenge open clinchers are good and have similar qualities to tubs. The Challenge Fango appeals as being best for dry and muddy courses, whereas the Grifo seems to have less tread which with my lack of racing experience makes me a little nervous.
The Vittoria XG pros seem to have good reviews?
I'm a long time Maxxis fan on my MTB but no idea how their cross tyres shape up?
Ideally I want one or two tyre sets given limited budget.
Thanks in advance.
