Not the same as Clement?

This will be my third or fourth season on MXPs. A good tread for a multitude of conditions up to but excluding sticky, clayey gumbo mud. (The treads are too close and tend to build up clay). As the center treads wear away I "downcycle" previous year's models onto my gravel & commuter bikes & they are still good for another 2000+ mi on pavement & easy gravel.

I expected the Donnelly model to be identical to my old Clements. After all it's the same company, right?

HOWEVER I just took delivery of the newest DONNELLY MXP tires and they are noticeably different from previous models under the Clement name. I have not raced on them yet so I can't comment on their performance. But this year's (Donnelly) model:

* noticeably heavier

* do not fold as tightly

* bead maintains creases at the folds, at least temporarily. I would worry this would affect tubeless setup

* came packaged in a box instead of through a hang tag

* made with a stiffer, more plasticky compound

* have a weird smell (kind of urine-ish?)

We'll see if they race or wear any differently!

Speed Ride 700x42 is the best choice for Michigan patched pavement and dirt roads.

Following low traffic routes takes me on less well maintained pavement and dirt roads. These tires are good at any price and excellent when you consider their price. I would like to try a 42mm version of the folding Ultra Sport II though. That would be even faster and more supple.

Good on gravelfire roads, Great on snow!

Bought the 42mm for local gravelfire roads and they work great. Was pleasantly surprised when they also excelled in the recent Portland snow. Ran them at lower pressure and the width and thousands(?) of edges on the tread gripped all the snow and ice. No noticeable wear and tear or flats after a few hundred miles. Would definitely buy again.

A great tire

Have the 42s. Super tire using on my cross bike mainly riding roads. Ride real nice and fast for style tire. When riding with groups I don't feel as if I'm giving up anything to my buddies riding road bikes. As another reviewer stated, this tire rolls. On downhills as fast most road tires. Well buy again.
