The Panaracer Gravel King SK 700c Tire is ready to take on even the most hardcore roads. Featuring a more aggressive tread than the standard Gravel King tire, the SK utilizes Panaracer's ZSG Natural rubber compound for optimal natural puncture protection and grip. Go beyond the end of the road with confidence thanks to the aggressive tread with raised knobs through the central patch, while more sizable blocky shoulder knobs keep you rubber-side down while cornering. The AX-α low rolling-resistance casing and anti-flat puncture protection breaker keeps the tires rolling even when the terrain gets rough. Take the comfort and durable protection to the next level with a tubeless setup (in widths 35mm or wider), supporting inflation pressures of up to 70 PSI.

Folding aramid bead. Multiple widths available. Max inflation: 70 PSI (60 when tubeless). Claimed weight is 400 grams. Available in Black or Brown sidewall. Available in 650B sizes as well.

Fast rolling tubeless gravel tire at a great price

I've found this to be a fast rolling gravel tire. I purchased the 38mm tire and mounted them on a rim with internal width of 19mm, the mounted tire measured 38mm. Fairly easy to mount and inflate on a DT swiss rim. The tire held air when first mounted. With the addition of sealant the tire barely looses any air between rides. The tread pattern is unique. The center tread pattern help this tire rolls fast and provides very good traction when climbing. The side knobs are a bit unconventional. Each knob is linked to the next knob with solid strip of tread. its basically on continuous patterm with knobs interspersed. The tire corners ok compared to a cyclocross tire. I guess gravel tires probably don't have to corner as good as cx tires.

Unfortunately i got a sidewall cut after only 200 miles. Sealant could only hold pressrue around 20 psi, so I am now running the tire with a tube. The sidewall cut happened when I was riding a pretty rocky section of gravel so that may just be normal wear and tear. I would still recommend this tire.

Great Off-Road Option

I put a set of the 26mms on my Cannondale EVO road bike to see how it would do on dirtgravel roads. Great performance and traction, even with the narrow width. Nice to have these as an option.

Impressive grip for such tiny lugs, was very effective for me

I was planning a tour on a crushed limestone rail trail in the Black Hills of South Dakota on our older road tandem. Unfortunately, our tandem frame did not have clearance for large tires. I had tested the bike with road tires on gravel and the front end skittered about quite a bit, sometimes edging toward hard to control.

I tried to fit several gravel tires, and (only) the 700x32 Gravel King SK barely fit the front. I had little gravel tire (or gravel) experience and was skeptical that the Gravel King's modest lugs would help improve control much. I was very pleasantly surprised - the Gravel King tremendously reduced front-end skittering and vastly improved control.

The tour was successful thanks in part to this tire. It rode well on pavement, with only a little buzzing, though I didn't try any hard cornering on pavement. On the gravel - which was sometimes much coarser and deeper than the better crushed limestone parts of the trail - I always felt solidly in control - a vast improvement over road tires.

I'm pretty sure a more aggressive tread (or a larger tire with the same tread) would have been even better, but due to frame clearance, those were not options for me. I was very happy I had tried the Gravel King.

Great gravel tire

Great gravel tire! I've ridden these on dirt, gravel, grass, and pavement. They mounted tubelessly quite easily on Iron Cross rims. I have the 32 mm width and they are about as wide as most 35 mm cyclocross tires on my other bikes. It has a nice supple ride feel and rolls quite fast on pavement. The only downside I've found is that the tread does throw quite a few rocks if you have any small gravel (between sand and pea-size) in your local roads. It's time to replace my rear tire, but I got 3000 miles out of it, not too bad! I will replace it with another GravelKing SK.

Great tubeless gravel tire

I purchased the 35mm version of these tires to run my CX bike in a 75 mile gravel race. They set up tubeless on my Stans Avion wheels easily, and I was very pleased with how they performed in a variety of conditions from wet, slick grass to chunky, loose gravel. Recommended.

Great all around tire!

I bought this for gravel rides and lousy pavement but they actually roll really well! Sure they are heavy so they dont accelerate well but once up to speed they roll over everything. 45 psi with the 38c on a wide rim works great!

Surpassed all expectations! Finished DK with no issues

Used these tires for the Dirty Kanza based on reviews. They did not disappoint. Traversed through some of the most rugged roads America has to offer. These will be my tire of choice for gravel events.

Solid gravel tire

I've been using the Gravel King SK on my cyclocross bike for about a year and a half. It's does a great job on gravel. I've raced gravel and cyclocross with it. It's a great overall tire.

The wear on the tire is above average. I rotate front tire to back and replace and have no problem getting 2 seasons out of it.

I run these tubeless. They were easy to setup and I've never had any punctures, even when I roll single track.

Unique tire that fits the need perfectly

I searched high and low to find a tire that I could use on my older model Specialized Roubaix for gravel road racing. Most of the gravel tires are too wide to fit in this bikes more

Traditional road bike geometry.

The ultegra road brakes in particular wont fit a tire wider than 26

Voila- Panaracer to the rescue- these tires fit in the frame and under the brakes. They are tough and offer excellent grip on dirt roads and through the corners. Lighter than a CX tire and roll faster when you hit the pavement too!

I love these tires- good work Panaracer!!

Good gravel tires

Got the SK Gravel King 32mm tires for gravel riding and am very pleased. They ride great and offer good traction at around 320 grams each. No problems with flats and durability - good tire for the money.

One of a kind

I searched high & low for a pair of knobby tires that I could mount on my Specialized Roubaix with Ultegra brakes- nobody had anything that fit

Until these

A shout out for bike tires direct- Ive bought many tires etc from them in the past, and this is the second time Ive called them for advice -

The fellow helping me went and looked at them and confirmed later they would fit my bike - this is excellent service!

Riding them on gravel is fantastic-they offer almost CX like traction and they roll fine on paved

Highly recommended

Runs narrow, flat profile

I bought a set of the Gravel King 32s based on my excellent experience with the GK 28s. However, they are very different tires and I am disappointed with the 32s. The 28s run wider than most tires in that size, about 29 mm on Open Pro rims and 30 mm on Velocity Dyads. However, the 32s barely measure 32 mm on Dyads, which are wide rims. They also have a much more aggressive tread and flatter profile compared to the 28s, making less than ideal for cornering and riding on pavement. I would not buy these tires again. Clement LAS 33s or Ritchey Crossmax Pro are better alternatives for a wider tire with moderate tread. That said, the GK 32s are a great value at $27, particularly if you don't plan to ride on the road and corner a lot.

Surprising good for dirt-sand-fine gravel

I'm running this on the rear on the bike trails and enjoying the traction and ride. The tire seems to glide smoothly over trail and likes about 70-75 psi for my average weight. Does fine on the pavement too, but most of my riding is on the trails. Ran a 32mm Clement X'plor 120 tpi when the ground was softer, but the Gravel King gives superior traction when it gets hard, dry and dusty.

Thought the small tread blocks would wear fast but not so - they've held up, roll quietly, and don't seem to mind the patches of deeper gravel.

Not so good for the front - the tire has a flat profile which puts a lot of rubber on the ground, but I like a rounded profile to bank into the corners easily. It does grip decently but is not as fun to toss into a turn.

Think you need wider rims (I use 19mm internal) to get the most out of it.
