Different side knobs and slightly different diamond pattern.

I'm debating between these Challenge offerings, some Vittoras, and another pair of LASes for my gravel bike.

LOVE me some tubulars on the gravel.

Looking at the Challenge site, there's no more Grifo XS, just the Chicane and Dune.

Gonna go ride 4hrs (ish) on my LAS tubulars again tomorrow. Riding big hills in preparation for Hilly Billy Roubaix. Let's hope that round will no longer be my shape

I think they changed the Grifo XS tread and then named it Dune.
I bought Grifo XS TE S, with the Dune´like tread. It was 50€/pc. Cheaper than clincher :)
