Why We Like The Connector Ultimate Tire

Whether we're crushing Kansas flintstone or digging hard through Texas gravel the Goodyear Connector Ultimate tire helps see us through to the finish. Built for the long haul, these gravel-specific tires are what we're mounting on our gravel race bikes. With up to a 50mm overall width, ride quality has never been better and after 200 miles in the saddle we're thankful for any kind of support we can get.

  • Aggressive gravel tire for big race ambitions
  • Smooth-rolling center patch with aggressive side knobs
  • R:Shield protection defends against slices and sidewall cuts
  • 50mm width runs smooth at 25-35 PSI for most riders
  • Increased overall toughness protects against punctures

Great tires but difficult to mount

These are really good tires. I've ridden it for over 500 miles and it gobbles up gravel without any problems. The one con with these tires though is that it was very difficult to set the bead on my carbon rims. It took a about an hour of fiddling using an air compressor to finally set it.

These seem really great so far

I've used it several times
True to size

Hadn't read any reviews of Goodyear's tires, but I liked the tread. Reminds me of DONNELLY X'Plor MSO, which I liked but always seemed kinda klunky to me (not sure how to describe it, they just never felt fast). These seem great so far. I run them on 25mm internal width carbon rims at about 30-35 psi (I'm 157lbs) and they seem really great on both road and gravel. Fast rolling, good traction and comfortable. Sizing seems correct but I haven't pulled out the calipers.
