Clement may find itself a relatively unfamiliar name for younger American riders unaware of the French boutique firm's glory days in the middle of the last century. After a few disappointing years of dormancy, new ownership and a strong lineup of 'cross tires have brought Clement some deserved attention stateside. The company continues to pick up steam each season, with the MXP Tubeless Tire bringing more versatility to the line in its tubeless-ready clincher configuration.
As with all Clement tires, the MXP shares its name with the airport code belonging to an iconic cycling city, in this case Milan, for its World Cup presence and its role as Clement's adopted home after World War I. We appreciate that though the MXP holds the distinction as Clement's newest 'cross tire, it uses a modified version of one of the brand's most proven tread profiles. The decades-old Grifo profile now enjoys added flexibility from small cuts in the central chevrons, and newer staggered side knobs modeled after soccer cleats designed to tear through mud. Unlike the PDX, the MXP enjoys a more versatile construction. It won't hang on through the soft and sloppy stuff as unfailingly as the narrowly-focused PDX, but it's extremely adaptable through a broader range of conditions, including snow, grass, hardpack, sand, and dry singletrack. If you'd rather show up on race day with one-tire quiver than a trunk full of tires to choose from, you can't do much better than the MXP.
