This is our choice for a gravel tire. Everyone at Ride The Whites uses this on their bike and loves how it performs. Designed to roll efficiently, while still providing traction on rowdy sections. There are a few different GravelKings models available from Panaracer. We have played around with as many variations as possible. The SS is definitely great on dryer days but will still get you through the ride when the trails are wet. Whether you are ripping single track or smooth dirt roads, the gravel kings do an excellent job transferring power from your wheels to the ground.
Keeping good tires on your bike is crucial to having a good time riding your bike. Typically, there really is never one single tire that rides great on everything. Every tire has drawbacks, but that's what makes it fun. Having a quiver of tires will make you fast on any condition.
