With their GravelKing SK tire, Panaracer has created one of the most well balanced gravel tires available. Equally comfortable on or off-road, the GravelKing SK is one of the most capable mixed-use tires on the market. The tread pattern features a wide row of tightly-packed small knobs down the center with longer blocks on the shoulders. This low profile pattern results in a fast-rolling tire on the road, with the tightly-packed knobs providing the added bonus of a quieter rolling tire than many of its peers. In addition to the tread pattern, the proprietary ZSG (Zero Slip Grip) provides the same low rolling resistance and comfort as Panaracer’s premium compound while enhanced wear resistance make for a long lasting tire. When venturing off-road, the longer shoulder blocks provide ample traction when cornering in loose terrain. The Advanced Extra Alpha Cord technology, or AX-a, utilizes extremely narrow cord that is weaved into the casing at a very high density for lightness and flexibility. Beyond providing a supple feel, the density of the weave also improves cut and abrasion resistance. The casing also features Panaracer’s Anti-Flat technology, an anti-puncture reinforcement throughout the tire which ups the resistance to pinch-flats and cuts. Being a tubeless ready casing, the capabilities of these tires can be further enhanced when set up as such. Rated tubeless compatible up to 60 PSI, running the lower pressures that a tubeless set-up allows will further lower the risk of flats while providing even more comfort. With excellent on and off-road performance, the Panaracer GravelKing SK is right at home on mixed terrain and should be a serious consideration for your next gravel tire.
Currently available in sizes 700 x 43 (490 grams) and 700 x 38 (420 grams) and in all-black or skinwall (black/brown) color options.
