All FMB tires are hand made in France, and as cyclocross racers know, the French know a thing or two about tubulars. The FMB Gripo XL is ready for the mud with its aggressive tread pattern, but not just the mud, the REALLY nasty stuff. This tread pattern sits on an all natural cotton casing to provide a tire that is supple and has low rolling resistance. Also, for an even lower rolling resistance, as well as better puncture protection, all FMB cyclocross tires use latex tubes.
