About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
About the Clement brand
Clement - A Classic Cycling Brand with Contemporary Style. In cycling, the name Clement is as legendary as the many champions who logged time and wins on these classic silks. Names like Eddy Merckx, Jacques Anquetil, Felice Gimondi, and Ole Ritter to name a very few. The CLEMENT brand was founded by Gustave Adolphe Clément-Bayard, the second son of a French grocer, who left home at the age of 16 with 30 francs in his pocket and died in Paris in 1928 at age 74 a multi-millionaire industrialist. He began his manufacturing career in 1878 by manufacturing high-quality bicycles and expanded into tyre manufacturing in 1888 and, later, into the manufacture and development of airplanes, automobiles, motorcycles, and dirigibles. In 1912, he was named a Commander of the Légion d’Honneur. After World War I, the Clement brand moved to Italy, and this is how most people think of the brand – as an Italian brand. CLEMENT tyres were the premier tyre in competition for decades, and probably more Tour de France and single day “Classics” were won on Clement tyres than any other tyre in the world.
