Equipped with the Gravel King, rides need not end where the pavement stops, they need not even see any pavement at all. Natural rubber, a puncture protection breaker, and a special casing for low rolling resistance make this tire suitable for just about any road surface be it concrete, asphalt, dirt, or (of course) gravel. 127 threads per inch makes for a very supple tire, and the claimed weight of 240g (26mm version) will appeal to the weight conscious.

The Gravel King Tire is available in 700c x 26mm (26-622 ISO) and 700c x 28mm (28-622 ISO).

Probably my favorite tire

Although they are called Gravelkings I am riding them 80/20 road to gravel. They work great for both. Super smooth for the road, and tacky enough for gravel. I run them lower on the gravel and went tubeless for even less weight. They set up on tubeless really easily. I like the gum sidewall look but don't know about it's specs or longevity.

Great smooth riding gravel tires

These tires are a great option if you do a mix of dirt and road riding, as they roll smoothly on road as well. Even though they dont have knobs, they do surprisingly well in dry dirt. Sand or mud may not be the best for these tires, but for hard pack they work really well, and for loosely packed dirt theyre good also. The tan sidewall is cool, and seems fairly tough. These tires are fairly light also, compared to some other tires with more tread or knobs. Time will tell if they last, but running them tubeless theyve been great so far.

35mm nice ride but flat prone

I've put a few hundred miles on my set, on mixed terrain.... 90% road and 10% dirtlight gravel. Comfortable tires on the road but was very surprised to get a puncture flat so soon. Time will tell if this was just a fluke but these tires are known to be puncture-prone. If they hold up I may consider them again in the future.

Great All Around Tire

Bought a set for my Specialized Sirrus. I wanted something that was wider and more supple. Im heavy and I wanted to ride some light gravel trails and not confined just to the road or smooth trails. These tires roll real well and give a lot of cushion without feeling sluggish. Ridden over some edgy gravel and no punctured. Great all around tire and it helped transform my fitness bike into a more versatile machine.

Excellent tire, best bang for your buck.

Best value for performance weight and protection. Not the longest wearing tire but great for spring summer and fall, I switch to a thicker tire for the winter months.

32mm - Great tire for all round riding with packed dirt.

Used on a go-for-coffee bike and general commuter on a route that includes some hilly grass sections and trails. Very nice riding and they feel fast.

No flats yet. If you are getting 5 flats in 100 miles, there is something other than the tire causing a problem.

Great tire great price!

Ive put about 1000 miles on these tires so far and Ive been extremely pleased. These tires are not quite gravel tires, they are more like road tires with some grit. Ive been riding on ruff paved road on a fuji SL and having just a little extra grit tread over a slick has been amazing. Great tire awesome look I would definitely recommend and would definitely buy them again!

Great Tire

I've been running this tire for three months, about 700 miles for commuting. They've had great grip in all kinds of weather. I just rotated the rear to the front since the rear was showing wear. I use my bike for commuting, and have two ortlieb gravel panniers on the rear with varying weights from time to time, so the wear is not unreasonable. Like others, I've had trouble getting the bead set and also since this is my first set of road tubeless tires, have had some flats from glassdebris which makes running tubeless a bit of a tricky proposition for reliability.

Better than my old gatorskins! My new favorite winter training road tire.

Gravel kings have been great! I was a little worried it would be too much tire tread for how much road riding I do but I love them. There's so much crap on the road this time of year they definitely provide some extra security. 28's are the way to go! No issues on group rides at all or holding my speed plus it's nice knowing if I want to take a detour on some fire roads i can link all kinds of new rides together. I've ridden them anywhere from 80 to 105 psi, no pinch flats or flats at all. I've put at least 500 miles on them already & they still look brand new.

Rides smooth, but punctures very easily

I rode these at the belgian waffle ride in 2017. Tire performed well during that event, but only a few rides later it punctured while riding in the rain. I know punctures are something that just happens and that when the roads are wet, you're more likely to pickup a piece of glass. But upon close inspection, it is obvious the tire is too thin. I love how these ride, but will get something different for my next BWR ride. I rode them with tubes, but have now gone tubeless. I will try something different next go around.

Almost a magic carpet ride but flat easily

I bought 700x32. The tires are fast and super comfy, especially when compared to the Gatorskins I took off. The first few times I used them they put a massive smile on my face. Only problem is they are prone to flats, especially when they wear. With gatorskins I only flatted maybe about once year max with commuting everyday and could run the tires forever. But with the Gravelking, I got 5 flats in about 6 weeks after I'd had the tires about 6months, all in the rear. It was showing signs of wear but it wasn't worn out. I took the rear off and put my old gatorskin, which must have 7k miles on it and it is still going strong. No flats since.

Nice ride, offers confidence on lousy NYC streets.

I bought these thinking they would be durable and they seem to be. Although I don't crush gravel, they offer confidence on really lousy NYC streets. They are a lot more comfortable than my previous Mavic clinchers. I like the size, which is listed as 26mm, but may be more like a thinner 28mm. I didn't think I had clearance for 28mm tires so these worked out well. So far, a few hundred miles and no cuts, nicks or bruises. The only rub is the very tight fit. Hopefully they will stretch after a bit of time and I can stop carrying tire levers.

28c narrow

The 28c tires run narrow. I mounted a 28c on a 24mm OD width rim, and they barely measure 27c with calipers. I was hoping for more width

Super tire

So happy with these tires. Such a big deference going tubeless and from 35s to 38s. There is a huge difference cornering and on the open road it feels much softer. On the gravel I cant say enough about these tires They seem to be holding up everything that I can throw at them. Ive only put about 400 miles on the set since getting them but I believe that theyre going to be the tire for me.

Unable to mount

These may well be great tires, but I'll never know because I cannot mount them on my Neuvation R28 SL2 wheels without damaging the tube. I gave up after pinch flatting two tubes and realizing that even if I managed to successfully install them at home I would never be able to out on the road if I got a flat. These rims have a reputation for a tight fit, but I've never had this problem with them before.

great tires

Great fires, my bike came with 700-38c Schwalbe Road Plus commuting style tires. They felt like molasses and had a ton of rolling resistance. They felt ok on corners but i never wanted to take anything too tight, especially as speed at speed. not great traction in dirt, they got squirmy fast. I got these in 700x32c and they feel great. they corner much better, and roll sooooo much better. i have not had to take them through dirt yet but they feel so much better already. the only downside is it took me about 2 hours, tire levers, and one pinched tube to get them on. they are a TIGHT fit. great tires, I will buy again.

Good Tire

I like the tires. They roll nicely. I use them on commutes and training rides. Any flats have occurred because I failed to inflate fully. That's my fault, not the tires. I've ridden on some rail trail, road and some service roads. I would repurchase.

Great tire in not so great conditions!

The Gravel King tire was awesome on the mixed surface gravel event that I purchased them for. I felt super confident climbing in the muddy conditions, descending and picking lines on technical single track. I had to sacrifice some traction on the deep mud due to not having any lugs on the tires but this was a trade off. Great tire!!
