Tubular Tires vs Clincher Tires
vs Tubeless Tires

The same as wheels, tires also come in clincher and tubular, and you can learn more about the differences between clincher and tubular tires here . Again, as with wheels, you can get yourself a tubeless tire. Tubeless bike tires work, as you’d imagine, without an inner tube, and can be a really efficient way to ride.

Recommended Tyres


If you’re choosing clincher tires, a solid choice is the Continental Grand Prix 4000s II, it’s a favourite for cyclists because of its super fast speed and its grip. What also makes this a special bike tire is its patented BlackChili rubber compound which helps to increase grip and mileage.

Other good choices are the Michelin Pro 4 Comp Clincher road tire and the Continental Grand Prix 4-season Clincher tire, of which the latter is a particularly tough tire that is great for all seasons and conditions.

If you prefer tubular, you can generally find the manufacturer’s tubular counterparts to their clincher tires.
