Donnelly Tires: X'plor MSO 700 x 50 tubeless ready foldable bead protective belt 70 tread compound black
The MSO Adventure Tire
The XPlor MSO Clincher is a Donnelly adventure tire, that (like all of the Donnelly adventure line) is meant to fill the gap between pavement and cross-country. The MSO runs a little wider and thicker than the USH, providing more durability, grip, and stability. The close packed center knobs allow a low rolling resistance, smooth ride, while the larger, widely spaced shoulder lugs provide traction and durability on single track trails and gravel roads. The tires are well suited for your urban assault, pavement, and even some cyclocross. The tire will fit on your cyclocross/gravel bike, commuter, touring, or road bike.
The tire is named after the airport code of Missoula, Montana (the beautiful home of the Adventure Cycling Association) and is made to easily handle a large variety conditions from gravel racing to touring and exploring long forgotten single tracks.
"In the dirt, the Donnellys are fast, but still very predictable. There's enough tread to keep you out of trouble, but not so much that they prevent you from hammering when you want to really motor. The X'Plor excels on hard pack and in small, fine gravel." -Gravelbike.com
"When people ask me about the MSO I tell them that its so good on dirt and gravel roads that it makes you irresponsible" - Adventure Cycling Demon
