Has anyone used the Clement Strada USH?

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Has anyone used the Clement Strada USH?

This 700x32 could be an ideal 70/30 road/gravel tire, as long as the gravel is firm.

It's probably a great tire for the use you propose. People in This thread seem happy with their clements. Lots of people report success on gravel with road tires. I don't really see the advantage of an off-road tread for gravel use. Mountain bike tires are a different matter altogether, knobs are useful there. Since I live in a rock garden, a larger size and robust sidewalls are pretty important to me. And if there aren't enough natural rocks, the Dept. of Natural Resources goes out and dumps more. But when I lived in the mountains of Virginia, I used to ride my road bike on the gravel roads. I've seen lots of roads like that, no maintenance and not much gravel to be found.

Yeah, I've been using a nearly slick 700x32 Vittoria Voyager Hyper with great results on firm level gravel. It's light, fast and supple with good flat protection, see: Vittoria Voyager Hyper Rolling Resistance Review

I have the Compass Barlow Pass on my vintage PX10. Nice tire but more fragile than the Hyper and more expensive.

I'd like the same construction and weight of the Hyper but without the reflective sidewall and with a micro textured tread pattern. The 120 tpi Strada USH matches that requirement.
