    X'Plor MSO Tire

    While some riders shy away from mud wallows and grassy climbs, you've never been one to let variable conditions slow you down, and the Donnelly X'Plor MSO Tubeless Tire isn't either. These tires are build to maximize your versatility for cyclocross domination, rolling through loose sand pits and over hard-packed singletrack alike, while offering 36-millimeters of rubber to keep you afloat, increasing small bump compliance, and comfort.

    This all-around cyclocross tire features a more classic tread profile, except for a few modern updates like precise flex grooves along the center for course-conforming grip, alongside aggressive side knobs for added stability and acceleration out of corners. The softer rubber compound readily grips to off-road surfaces, as well as adding a bit of cushioning from harsh terrain. It's reinforced with Aramid along the casing, so it's not as prone to punctures from road debris and rough surfaces.

    • Start an adventure right with these tubeless tires
    • Soft rubber compound adds grip and shock-absorption
    • Integrated puncture-protection belt under the tread adds defense
    • Center knobs and aggressive shoulder lugs make for a smooth roll
    • Tubeless-ready design also works with a tube

    Mixed Bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I've gone through a few sets of these tires and here's my take.

    The Good: Tires ride and roll VERY nice. Great mixed surface tire (road, gravel, broken).

    The Mixed: I am over 200 lbs., so I will be harder on stuff than most others, but tire seems to wear down pretty quickly.

    The Bad: The sidewalls of these tires are pretty thin. I've only had one sliced sidewall, so no big deal. What is disconcerting is that there are manufacturing flaws in the sidewalls that leave pin size holes in a few places on about a third of these tires I've purchased. You have to set bead, insert sealant, inflate, find holes by listening, then lay wheel down on its side so sealant can cover the hole(s). Repeat as you find holes on both sides. Should be good to go. However, once, I had to stop mid-ride and lay wheel on side to get tire to seal again.
