Tubular Tyres vs Clincher Tyres
vs Tubeless Tyres

The same as wheels, tyres also come in clincher and tubular, and you can learn more about the differences between clincher and tubular tyres here . Again, as with wheels, you can get yourself a tubeless tyre. Tubeless bike tyres 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 tyres, 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 tyre is its patented BlackChili rubber compound which helps to increase grip and mileage.

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

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