The Gravel. Versatile and a perfect choice for riding conditions in the UK if you like to venture off the tarmac. With a high tech multi-depth tread design the Gravel is a tyre which can not only maintain a high rolling speed on forest roads but as soon as you turn from hardtop to dirt the excellent off-road abilities become clear. Out climb and descend your rivals with confidence in traction and control in all conditions. Built using our UCI XCO U23 World Championship winning tubeless carcass this is a high-performance tyre competitive on the trail and in price.
Huge care has been put into developing the technology to create individual traction pockets in the top of every tread block giving unparalleled grip even on smooth surfaces where the hundreds of small changes in angle provide contact points no matter what shape, texture or surface is under the wheel. You will find purchase even in places where you would expect a grip to be lost. Think Squid tentacles! The side tread is an evolution from our world-class cross country MTB racing Roller and Rock & Roller Models and has exceptional cornering qualities, providing security whilst allowing the rider to maintain speed through technical sections.
Every detail down to how the tread blocks are spaced, allowing excellent mud-clearing ability whilst still maintaining tread coverage across the width and length of the ground contact point means that you can take on our usual UK trail conditions with confidence that you won't come unstuck in the mud. When riding on cambers and greasy slopes, the lateral grip is fantastic allowing you to handle a wide variety of technical terrain in all conditions with ease.
