    Grifo Question

    The tuular grifos come in a 32 and 34 with the gum wall which I see most people riding but they also have a 32 with black sidewall with white tread. If there a performance/suppleness difference between the two?

    I believe the white tread is designed for cold/snowy conditions....(It's softer).

    As Kram said, the white rubber is softer. I have the Grifo XS 32 in white and it does just fine in the grass.

    I emailed Challenge and asked if there was a difference in the two and was told there was not a difference besides color
