All road tyres for the Summer of Gravel

There’s a recent buzz around Gravel rides and riding road bikes on gravel. This has lead to a plethora of tyres becoming available to fit this new niche in the market. We have been stocking an ever increasing range of these gravel suitable tyres and thought it was time we gave a little wrap up of what’s available .

Panaracer Gravel King 32mm

Thin with a file tread these tyres are lightning fast on gravel and excellent choice for well groomed back roads. However we know a few people who have taken them way beyond there intended habitat with great sucess. Measures 32mm wide on a 24mm rim.

Soma Cazadero 42mm

This might well be our favorite, the boss man initially put them on the Wolverine to see how they would go tubeless and as a weekend tyre. We are yet to see him take them off and they are handling the rigours of commuting very well. The continuous centre tread helps them to roll fast on the tarmac. Measures 42mm wide on 24mm rim.DSC02065

A pioneer in mountain biking, Bruce Gordon designed this for the 29er bike well before it’s time. Measures 44mm wide on a 24mm rim. Great for when the blacktop ends and the fun begins! Also available in 650B.
