Cyclo Cross tyres are for use with road wheels to allow them to be ridden off road. They range from 30 to 35mm wide and are designed with different tread patterns to suit the various conditions that can be encountered during the Cyclo Cross season. Usually at the start of the season the ground is dry and hard so a narrower low tread tyre is needed as low rolling resistance is a priority. Later in the season when the ground is wet, grip is a priority so a wider tyre with increased tread would be the better option.
Panaracer offers the highest in quality tyres. The quality of bicycle tyres is critical in those crucial moments of a split-second track race, during a long, epic road race, an MTB race, or during your own personal ride. Panaracer tyres have provided the world's best racers and riders with precisely what they look for in a tyre. Reflecting Panaracer's commitment to top-notch compound technology plus its years of experience, Panaracer tyres are perfectly suited to even the most demanding use on track, trail, or road.

The Crossblaster is Panracer's race specific tyre, designed more towards performance than durability and puncture resistance. The feathery 280g weight is very competitive for a cross clincher whilst offering a good mud shedding, block design tread, good for UK conditions.
Mounting the tyre I could certainly feel it was lightweight, verging more towards the studded condom end of the rubber scale. With the weather we have had over the last few weeks I have been using my cross bike rather than my road bike for training. Using these tyres I have had an above average number of punctures, as I would expect for such a thin tyre. For this reason I would not recommend them for anyone other than a racer and just keep them for race day.
The tread is a simple square block pattern, which I found a good all rounder. The blocks are spaced enough to shed mud but still offer good grip and when fitted on the front, corner extremely well. Being quite a low profile, the blocks also roll well on smooth and hardpack surfaces. Wear too, seems to be good, after a few weeks use even with the rear ridden on a flat for 1.5hrs (don't ask!).
