Description

GravelKing SK Tire

Designed with a grippy tread and reinforced with Anti-Flat Casing, the Panaracer GravelKing SK Tubeless Tire is your partner-in-crime for adventures down bumpy gravel roads where flats and punctures are common. This tubeless-ready tire in wider casing runs lower in pressure for greater bump compliance and excellent grip across rough gravel and bumpy roads. The ZSG Natural Compound balances low rolling resistance with tread longevity, giving you the best in efficiency and durability along mixed gravel and asphalt surfaces. Please note, this isn't the best tire for muddy conditions, as Panaracer developed a specific version of this tire for sloppy muck.

  • Reinforced for gravel grinding along rough stretches
  • Grippy tread for unrelenting grip across gravel roads
  • Tubeless-ready and wider casings for running lower pressure
  • ZSG Natural Compound balances rolling speed with durability
  • Anti-Flat Casing prevents flats and nasty punctures
  • Max tubeless pressure of 60PSI ensures a cushy ride
  • Recommended for use with internal rim widths of 22mm or less

Good traction

700x35

I put about 50 miles on these tires in mixed use of pavement, dirt trail, rocky and rooting trail, and leaf covered trails with a little bit of mud. So far they give good traction in all conditions. There is some slip in mud, which is not a surprise with the short blocks, but they have pulled me through in all cases.

My first gravel flat

700x38c

First gravel bike and first gravel tire, so I don't have much basis for comparison. I've been riding 23-25mm road tires for over a decade. Yesterday I had my first gravel flat and figured time to write a review. 700x38c. These roll smoothly on road with no perceptible buzz sound or feel. Maybe that's how gravel tires are all designed but it's worth noting. I have not quite 1000 miles on this set and probably 85% was on the road. I've also taken them up along most of the off-road portions along the bayou around Terry Hershey and Bush Park in Houston and even along Anthills and they perform fine, though even at 35psi I've considered getting a gravel suspension so I can do more of that. The traction is surprisingly good on dirt, as I've taken them up steep dirt grades like the Addicks Dam and they don't break traction easily even though I realize these aren't mountain bike tires. My first flat occurred yesterday after about 20 miles of gravel along Addicks Dam (https://www.hikingproject.com/photo/7066214/view-from-addicks-dam-gravel-trail). Apparently something (perhaps a piece of construction debris) impaled the side wall and caused sealant to squirt onto my chain stay. That tire is done. I might try the SK+ next time which has reinforced sidewall. So this was also my first gravel flat-change, and I was surprised how easily the tire came off and a new, different tire went on, with just my fingers and no tools.

I wanted to love these tires. They seem to be very popular in the gravel community and have a great reputation. They were easy enough to mount and no trouble running them tubeless on my stock WTB wheels. My only real complaint is that they pick up and throw tiny pebbles almost like they were designed to do so. On my first 40 mile ride, I noticed immediately the sounds of little pings off my bike. I assumed once the brand new stickiness of the tire wore off, this would subside. After 40 miles through dirt and dust, they're still flinging rocks much more so than any other tire I've used. I guess I will put a few more miles on them and hope that it calms down. I get the feeling these are better for dirt and muddy conditions and less ideal for someone like me who tends to ride finely packed gravel on a regular basis.

Hello, I ride a Cannondale Synapse/Shimano 105 with disc brakes, and currently have 30mm tubeless ready road tires on. I'm looking to make the jump to gravel and read around that these in 32mm will be a good fit. I'm not looking for mud clearance, just a bit of versatility. Can you confirm they'll be the right fit? Thank you.

Grip & Rip!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

After much goofing around trying to get the right tape/sealant solution working out, I've been putting these tires through the paces. One of the first rides I had, I got a nice few mm wide gash in the tread. Hey, it happens, and it would have flatted any tire. Cool thing was, the sealant plugged it enough for me to finish the descent, plug the tire, and keep rolling. After repairing that gash with a piece of inner tube and rubber cement, I've gone full send a good few times and they are rolling great! They roll pretty well on road, feel supple on gravel, the shoulder knobs are great when things get a little wild on gravel switchbacks, and seem to be holding up to the abuse well.

Great tires, surprisingly fast rolling

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I put the 35mm tires on my Canyon Endurace, which isn’t actually a gravel bike, but has quite a bit of tire clearance. I’ve put a couple hundred miles on them without puncture, and I love them. They do weigh a bit more, but I can run tire pressure at 40-45 PSI, which actually makes a lot of roads faster (compliance) and a lot more comfortable. I’ll even take the bike for a nice long road ride up a canyon, then take a section of Bonneville Shoreline single track on the way home! All while still getting PR’s on the road. Just have to be careful of toe overlap ;). Good times to be riding wide tires on compliant road/gravel bikes. These things are great and look great!

Awesome review, thanks Clay! We have some things in common... I also own a Canyon Endurace (and came wondering if the 35 mm Gravel Kings would be a good fit for it) and live along the Wasatch Front (in Salt Lake). I am contemplating the 35 mm Gravel Kings for many of the reasons you commented on (including wanting to take the BST). How much clearance do you have at the chainstay junction? I think 35 mm is the max the Endurace can safely take but just wanted to get your thoughts on that. Also, what wheels are you running with the Gravel Kings? Thanks! John PS - on a side topic, I'd love to compare notes with you sometime regarding your experience with the Endurace. I love that thing but frequently get a bit of rotor rub at the front disc. Wondering if you get that too? I wonder if the fork is just a little too compliant? Would love to get your thoughts.

Great review. I also have a Canyon Endurace. How much clearance do you have at the chainstay junction with these on?

I’ve got an Endurace as well and glad to know these will work well for both road and off-road at 35mm.

The GravelKing SK is still simply one of the best all around gravel tires out there.

I see these recommend max internal rim width of 22mm. I want to mount these in a 35c with a 25mm internal rim width. Will I have an issue with that setup?

I highly doubt that would cause any issue.

These are an incredible performing tire. They were easy to set up on my Mercury S5's where they seem to grab and able to roll over anything.

700 x 43, how it measures

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Haven't had a chance to really put some miles on them, but was worried about how they measured. the 700x43 measures: 40.9mm wide at 60psi (max to seal them up) 41.9mm at 40psi (what I plan to ride) Mounted on Mercury M1 rims (20mm) inner diameter, tubeless. 2 layers of Stans tape. With a compressor, getting the bead to settle in was easier than my other bikes, but too snug to set up with a floor pump. On a Niner RLT Steel, there is plenty of clearance in the front and back.

Solid Option

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking for a solid all-round tire, this is your best choice. Does not have the best tread and is not the lightest, but it will won't let you down. On my second set and I would have a hard time looking at other options when it comes to my third set. Beware that they are a challenge to set up tubless. I'd recommend putting tubes in them for 1-2 weeks to get the 'folds/creases' out of the bead before adding any sealant.

Hello, will these tires ( 700c x 35mm) fit my Trek Domane SL6 Disc (2019) with Hunt 4 Season Gravel Disc wheels?

Hi Francesco, on Trek's website they recommend a max tire size of 32mm for the Domane SL6 Disc frame.

Francesco, did these work out on your domane?? I am buying them and also setting them up a domane sl8 disc. Trek says “have to say only 32 because of...blah blah blah but other sites say up to 38 but I don’t believe that. So I bought 35. Did they work??

Francesco & Mike - how'd it go? I, too, have a Domane Disc with the Trek-approved max width 32mm. I'm running Zipp 30 Course rims with 21mm internal width. Do the 35mm's fit, and as importantly, what's your internal rim width?

terrific gravel tire.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Originally bought as a commuter tire, I found the 700x43 version excellent on mixed terrain and in mixed weather. I have faster rolling tires for those warm summer days. But for anything less than perfect asphalt on a warm day. The Gravelking had traction to spare. Casing is at the durable end of medium toughness. For a tire with this much tread, it is fairly fast rolling!

Sidewall tear and easily punctured

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have only put about 400 miles on these and in the same week had a sidewall tear and another puncture that just wouldn't seal up. Not sure if this was coincidence but I am not very confident in their durability. Moving to another brand.

Panaracer does it again!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Got a set of GravelKing SK, 77x43 For my all weather commuter/bikepacker. Mounted on my Soma Wolverine. Panaracer excels at making fast rolling, fluffy tires that ride like a dream. this tire rolls more along the lines of a medium quality 35c. Which is terrific for a tire with this much dampening. everything short of mud and boulders can be handled by this tire. Not a mountain bike tire. but as close as you can get to one without suffering serious issues with rolling resistance. For commuters, Tourers, moderate Dirt Tourers. bad weather riding. This tire is as close as they come to a jack of all trades!

will the 700Cx32's fit on a 2019 Fuji Gran Fondo 1 disc?

Hey Pat, most likely a 32mm will not fit that bike, especially with a wider aftermarket wheel. The frame is pretty close tolerance wise with the factory 30mm tires it comes with.

A great gravel tire

I love these tires. great grip on loose gravel but also smooth on the roads. I have the wider tire and they are a very comfortable ride (35PSI). They seem to be very durable so far. I would take these tires anywhere.

I live in Utah, wondering if you have had them in the snow? If so how did they do?
