The trusted choice of touring cyclists, daily commuters, and roadies who aren't afraid of gravel, the Panaracer Pasela is all about durability and flat-resistance without giving up ride quality. This ProTite model is even more flat-resistant than the previous PT model with an upgraded ProTite belt that provides almost 25% more protection, and it's paired with their tough 400D Cord casing reinforcement to improve cornering and reduce sidewall damage. Against the road is the Pasela's signature inverted chevron tread pattern and robust rubber compound that provide traction over a wide range of terrain.

Available in folding or wire bead options. Claimed weights are 280 g (700c x 28 mm, folding) and 330 g (700c x 28 mm, wire).

Punctures easily

Used it for 150 miles on my trip across country and had 3 flats while the Marathon Supreme had none for 3000 miles. I was riding in the shoulder a lot.

Get's Punctures Easily, But other then that fast and comfortable.

Im a bike commuter that cycles to work and sometime to the store. Also a attend group rides thats average over 50miles. Best thing about these tires or the yellow side walls. For two reasons, looks and comfort. They are really thin and I guess it was designed that way to cushion the bumps on the road. Theyre really fast. Because it has great grip can put the power to the ground quickly. Proof is on Strava where I have 3 KOMs with this tires so fare. Also every time Im on a group ride people always compliment my rear tire. The Bad thing about it is you can only truly ride it on the road and cobble stones. Any time I ride on grass which may have something as small as a needle or a paper clip it will puncture very easily. It happened to me twice my first month riding with it, because I like taking shortcuts to work. So I had to change my routes to stay on the road. Best advice with this tire is to only use it for the rear. Thats where you need the power.

Reliable, smooth riding good handling

I have a set of the 700c x 32 Pasela PT's on my commutertouring bike. So far have 1335 miles with no flats. Front tire still has the little diamond tread pattern showing.. Rear is just starting wear the diamonds off in the center. I think tires will probably last 3 to 4 thousand miles if I rotate them. For an earlier reviewer, these are mounted on Velocity Blunt SL 29er rims. Rim width is 25mm OSM, 20mm ISM. Tire width measures 33.5mm at 75psi inflation pressure (which gives a great ride and decent handling for my 150lbs). Overall, I am very happy with these tires and they are a good deal at BTD.

Best All Roundr Tires

I started using the TG version back in 2010 when I first started riding brevets. On my Rando bike I have over 12,500 miles, all on these tires. My first set, front tire lasted 6,500 miles and rear was 2700 for the first, 3800 on the second. Tire size are 700 x 28. My second set are the same size as the first I have a bit over 6000 Miles on the front, the rear 5,600 on the first, almost 1000 on the second which is the PT. Feels the same as TG. These tires are pretty supple, fast and durable, only 4 flats total on all tires ridden. I also have size 32 on another bike with almost 2000 miles with no flats and very nice to ride on. Great tires overall!

best upgrade i've made so far

i live in nyc and ride everywhere i go year round, the roads are full of broken glass, widow-maker pot holes, left over winter sand, and all sorts of weirdgross things waiting to give you a puncture or worse. these tires have made my rides and commutes so much more comfortable. I'm running the 35mm's and they're great. Grippy, supple, tough, fast rolling. All the things i thought i'd have to pay $50ea for. And my bike looks pretty pretty good with the tan side walls.

Quality tire, true to size

I rode these tires a bunch when I first built up my rainy day bike. After using another brand, I came back to this tire as they're a good balance of toughness, weight, and ride quality.

Very nice gravel tire

I use these tires (700x32) on my commutergravel bike. I'd go one size larger (700x35) but I can't fit with fenders. Nevertheless, the 32s are very comfortable and relatively light weight (I got the folding version). Panaracer makes quality tires.

great ride

I'm a randonneur and year-round commuter logging about 5000 miles per year-lots of wet weather and lots of night riding where I don't necessarily see road hazards before I hit them. I get plenty of flats with all kinds of tires, and I'm not afraid of flats. If you are, then you should get over it, or give up on road feel. Tires are basically a wear item. The Paselas provide an excellent road feel and light weight. They do have some puncture protection. As another person noted, when they are new flats are more rare. For me this is just gravy. But for this price and this road feel I'm not sure you can do better. I've used the 28s and 32s. I do like how compact the tire is when folded-I carry a spare most of the time. I'm moving one of my bikes toward wider tires and gravel. I plan to start it's new life with the Pasela 38s (available at an LBS).

Great tire when you have enough clearance. It rolls happily on pavement, and accepts gravel graciously

I purchased my first adventure bike and chose this tire. I have a couple of hundred miles on it now, and I'm happy with its performance. Most of my miles have been on payment, city and country, and I've always been pleased with the road feel. I've done a few miles on gravel, and no complaints! (BTW, no flats so far.)

Supple Budget Touring Tire

Panaracer is the OEM for a high end touring tire brand here in the Seattle area, so I thought, why not get a deal and go directly to the manufacturer? That said, I've ridden the high end brand, and this is not the same tire-but for the price difference, I didn't expect it to be.

I picked up the 38c size to run on my daily riderlight touring bike. They do a great job of absorbing the potholes, cracks, and other atrocities found on Seattle's third world-like roads.

I believe supple is the word all the skinny-jeaned kids are talking about these days. So, supple it is....errr...they are.

The Panaracers also hang corners like nobody's business.

Well....I'm sure it's somebody's business...but nobody that I know.

And they look cool with their classic gumwall styling.

Looking cool automatically makes you 20-30% faster. Scientific fact!

My only beef with the tire is that I somehow got a hole in the sidewall on the Seattle-Portland ride this year. Whether that happened on the road or in transit, I'll never know. But, the tube stayed intact, so it could have been worse.

So maybe it's not really a beef. Maybe it's more of a tofu.

All in all, a nice tire at a nice price.

Great tandem tire

These have been my go-to tires for our tandem for decades. 700x28 for general riding and 700x32 when we load up the panniers. The 32's must have thicker rubber. Get many more miles on them.

Great While They Lasted

I posted a review in July 2014 once I hit 800 miles on these tires with no problems and joked that I had probably jinxed myself. Well.....in the two months since, I have had FIVE flats all from small pieces of glass embedding in the rubber and grinding their way through to the tube.

My riding conditions and miles haven't changed. I gauge my tires at least twice a week. The tires look noticeably worn after 1100 miles.

I believe this is like a race tire. Super soft compound, great grip and ride but like race tires, they aren't designed for the long haul. Prior to this I had a set of Vredestein Moiree's that logged 2500 miles with one flat.

These are not worth $70.00 every 800 miles. They are not good citycommuting tires and are going in the recycling bin. Wish I could find the Moiree in a 700 again.

Well worth the extra bucks.

I bought a set of wire bead Vittoria tires for my commuter which were hard to mount and one was seriously out of round. Returned them to Bike Tires Direct where they made me a good deal on these. Several of the staff at the warehouse use these for their daily commute.

They don't LOOK tough and I have waited to review them because my only doubt was durability. Now I've passed 800 miles on them without a flat (just jinxed myself!) and will say they are easy to mount, they weigh nothing compared to the Vittorias and have excellent grip.

Great touring, commuting tire

I installed some of these on my touring bike before embarking on a 400-mile loaded tour on the GAP - C&O Canal trails, which consist of dirt, mud and gravel paths. The Paselas rode great, provided plenty of traction and never flatted. Their light weight made it easy to carry a spare. I'll be keeping these tires on my bike for commuting.

Sweet balance of performance, durability and price.

I use these as my daily driver on a disc gravel bike that's a fenderlight commuter bike all winter. I rode a set of these into the proverbial ground with only one flat in 18 months of riding. Nice road feel, light weight and a plenty durable. All for a super good price relative to the market (at least IMO). Hard to beat for the money.

Awesome balance of performance and protection

I have run Paselas in various sizes on gravel, touring and commuting rigs for a couple years. I bought these for my wife's commutingtouring bike and I am never worried that she'll find herself stopped to fix a flat during her ride home, and the rubber is sticky as hell on Seattle's slick streets.

Not what I expected.

I have used Panaracer tires before and thought these would be just fine. They are okay but are not what I was expecting, however will continue to use them. Not sure but it maybe the rims I have them. Hope they are more like what I wanted after I chance rems and tubes.
