If you're willing to sacrifice some weight, this is probably the best trail/road/trekking/gravel tire . I use the 2.25 version on two of our family bikes. They're not the lightest things, but they are as puncture proof as any legendary Schwalbe touring tire.. They also have a nice profile for good handling, and the tread is suitable for dryer trails as well as asphalt. Oh, and gravel, of course. Tread wear is good. Did I mention no punctures? I took a star off for weight.
