Panaracer has done it again!

The GravelKing has reached its strongest version yet. For riding in the toughest conditions, the use of ProTite Shield Plus makes the new GravelKing Plus the best, most puncture-resistant gravel and dirt tire of its kind, yet.

The GravelKing Plus is the perfect tire for getting in solid road mileage and not being afraid to throw in a lot of gravel and dirt. These tires handle exceptionally well and are reasonably light thanks to the ultra-thin 'Ax-Alpha Cord' technology.

A 120tpi super supple AX-a casing, at the core of the tire, offers a subtle ride quality. The Panacracer ProTite bead-to-bead protection belt is responsible for preventing flats. This extra protection is essential for running coveted lower pressures on tubeless tires.

The GravelKing Plus, the apparent winner of its category, allows you to ride off-road with more confidence and ultimate traction.

Fast rolling supple tires

I purchased these tires to be more road biased but still climb the gravel/fire roads here in the Bay Area. The suppleness of the tire works well with my Topstone's kingpin suspension to add another layer of comfort. The 38mm X 700c tires actually are about 40mm wide on 25mm ID rims (they are marked 40x622). The 120 tpi casing is noticeably supple and was a little bit of a challenge to get on the wheels (HED Eroicas) with a single tire lever (crank brother's awesome one) but that also meant that a regular floor pump was able to set the bead on the rim. After three months, the bead has stretched and removing from the wheel is very easy.

Performance wise, The + casing has allowed me to forge rock strewn stream beds as well as bomb smooth tarmac hills cornering hard. The file tread and supple casing means that lowering the tire pressures allow me to climb gravelly fire roads and trails up to about 14-16 degrees of incline ( any steeper, and I have to get out of the saddle and then the tire slips and its game over). On the road, I can keep up with most group riders but I'm sure that the width and my gearing (46/30 & 11-34) start to be a factor. The extra wide tread does feel more confident at high speed cornering.

Wear is okay- at 1500 miles, the rears have worn the file tread off the center 10 mm wide section and has flattened. The fronts are barely showing wear. however, I did get a 2 mm cut on the rear tire near where the tread is worn. I was fortunate and didn't even know until this morning when I discovered that I had almost no air in the tire. It would hold air at 25 psi- unloaded. I believe that the wear is about where the protection starts to become an issue. I've already ordered another rear and am pretty sure I'll get near 3-4000 miles off the fronts.

If this was my only wheelset, I might consider the Gravelking SS next time. However, if you have another set for off road duties like me, I feel that the Gravelking slicks are a good all around tire. I am considering 35mm when the fronts wear, but am not willing to trade the offroad capabilities that 40mm allows because some of the fire road climbs do take 10-20 miles of road riding to get to. Having a very competent road tire that can cover some offroad in a pinch is the best compromise for me and allows me to run a more aggressive gravel tire on my other wheelset for the closer rowdy rides in my local regional park.

Difficult to setup & punctures like crazy

Getting these tires seated (tubeless) on 21.5mm internal rims was unlike anything I'd experienced to date and, while I eventually figured it out - tube in for 24 hrs (any less = failed attempt), remove tube/leave one bead seated, add sealant, use a booster pump - the amount of experimentation (aka failed attempts) required to even seat these things was nuts. Flash forward 1 month and after 6 rides with these tires on my gravel bike, I ripped them off. Sure the ride is nice, they corner well on pavement at high speeds, and provide acceptable control on light gravel/dirt roads, but 3 punctures over the course of those 6 rides is simply unacceptable.

Top notch

I ride gravel and have the Panaracer SK on one wheelset and these tires in the other. These are great since I can ride road miles and not feel like they are holding me back from a smooth ride Plus they perform well on heavy duty gravel. I have well over 1200 miles on these and are still in good shape. FYI. They bleed Stans quite a bit in the beginning but eventually seal up nice.

Bad batch? Stick to the SK or non-Plus

Hoo boy. Big Panaracer fan, not a big review writer but these GK+ missed the mark and made me feel like I wasted my money. I�ve run and loved the SKs for many many tubeless miles without a hassle but these, on the other hand...no thanks. I picked these up from BTD within the first week on sale, and had a nightmare of a time getting the bead seated on the tubeless DT rim on which I�d previously run Panaracers. Strike one.

Finally got them holding air, added sealant, and both tires leaked like a sieve through the sidewalls. Pulled them off to throw tubes in them, and the bead had stretched so much that they would never be able to safely be run tubeless again. With tubes, they ride more harshly and less lively than classic GK slicks. I�m not sure if they were mislabeled, if the tubeless casing was defective, or what happened, but these are NOT tubeless appropriate and were a huge letdown.

Sidewalls leak like a screen door.

I bought these to use on my cross bike.I wanted a tubeless road/trail tire to soften the ride on local trails.I have mounted many mountain bike tires tubeless without trouble.The GK's side walls leak like crazy even after adding 4.5 oz of Stans sealant and 50 miles of riding.Out of desperation I coated the insides of both tires with flexible contact cement.and 3 oz of sealant.No change.I put tubes back in.They are fine rolling tires and are reasonably fast, loads of grip.I gave tubeless 1 more try and added a much thicker layer of contact cement, 2 oz of Stan's Race sealant to 1 tire.Most of the leaks stopped.The few stubborn leaks were sealed with Gorilla glue. I have ordered some Orange Seal Endurance for the rear tire and have removed the contact cement. Am hopeful! I had previously purchased Vittoria Zero tires and they were just as bad. 4 leaky tubeless tires in a row. Stan's regular sealant was the constant factor.The Orange Seal has better reviews,so maybe this time? Great Customer service by Ron of BTD.

700x35

Purchased these for a gravel race with a lot of pavement and have really grown to love them. Usually run them tubeless at 38 psi and up to 50 on a recent all pavement ride. They do get a little squirrely on loose gravel and I wouldnt run them in mud. Initial tubeless setup had a lot of sealant leakage throughout the porous rubber. After about 5 rides seemed to diminish. Greatly reduced rolling resistance over the SK, which I really like for more technical conditions.

Great deal on a nice tire

I wanted a semi slick tire to get around on the greenbelt trails with an occasional run on a single track trail. I have ridden about 100 miles on these tires and am very happy with them. Here is what I have experienced thus far with the various terrain ridden with them

-Hard packed dirt - These tires excel here. Kind of scary how well they hook up.

-Pavement - About as good as expected with a file type tire. I run tubeless around 50-60 psi and notice they are a little grabby going around slow turns. If I were to go on a full pavement long road ride, I would pump them up a bit.

-Gravelcrushed granite - Pretty good here. I have notice the tires breaking loose when corning on thicker crushed granite which is mostly poor line choices.

-Thicker marble sized pebbles - Not good. But this a semi slick tire that I am pushing too far on single track trails.

-Mudsnow - Terrible. Hit a few patches of north facing mud and snow by accident. These tires are not intended for this.

Overall very pleased with the tires.

Not bad

A good all around tire. It's enough to keep up on the road, but can still take a reasonable beating off road. You can get a lot father off road on a file tread like this than you would imagine. I use this on rocky double track in southern California all the time. I have gotten a few punctures when riding tubeless, but they all sealed well enough. My one significant complaint is that the maximum pressure is only 60 psi when tubeless. This is low for riding on the road, so keep that in mind.

Perfect for pavement and limestone mixed riding!

These tires roll fast and stable when going from roads and paved trails to limestone trails! As a bonus, they are comfortable on rough roads. I have been running them for two years on my trail bike and i Not changing!
