Wear the crown.

Designed for those of us who've chose to venture off the well-trodden asphalt in search of real adventure, the Panaracer Gravel King SB Tire features a more aggressive tread pattern than the standard Gravel King. This aggressive tire features tightly-packed knobs through the center tread, ensuring traction in loose terrain or hard-packed gravel, while the raised blocky shoulder side knobs keep up with you even during aggressive cornering. Using the same basic construction as its sibling, the Gravel King SB uses a ZSG Natural rubber compound for tacky grip and natural long-lasting durability. Under that supple outer layer, the AX-α casing provides a fast-rolling and durable, puncture-resistant foundation that can go anywhere.

Folding aramid bead. Multiple widths available. Tubeless ready (widths 35mm and wider). Max inflation: 70 PSI (60 when tubeless). Claimed weight is 400 grams. Available in Black or Brown sidewall. Available in 650B sizes as well.

Puncture flat less than 500 miles..But

These have been great up until I got home from my evening commute and my rear tire was Pssssshht. Investigating, something microscopic and sharp as eff penetrated the tire between the center knobbies and the corner knob wall. It is a small puncture. My commute is mostly tame, but the very high volume road I ride on has everything on earth in the gutter...oops! I mean bike lane. Including standard road furniture. (Manholes!)

Am patching now, will post follow up. Otherwise, GREAT tires. Perfect for mixed pavegravel. I think maybe I just got unlucky, but still. A tiny sliver shouldnt stop the party.

Great Tire for Gravel

Got these tires 3 weeks ago for my gravel grindercommuter bike. It was a killer deal from Westerbikeworks, mounted easily on my mavic allroad wheels (I used a compressor this time) and sealed properly using Stans. They are advertised at 35 mm but at 60 PSI they go up to around 37mm which is not a problem for me. They feel soft and comfortable on gravel but feel a tad slower on tarmac ( compared to my Clement MSO) it endured very well on the total beat down during the Castell grind last weekend. they are also lighter than the Clement That I previously used. So far so good I would probably buy them again

These tires seem to work well on gravel and pavement. I am using tubes and run 45psi in back and 40 in front. No flats so far and with 35s. Tires seem to hold speed on pavement and the side knobs and file tread seem to handle predictably on gravel. So far I am happy with these tires.

My 1st foray into 700x35mm for the CX Gravel bike, up from 28mm. Ive got a couple hundred miles on them so far - i think i need to run a higher pressure than what was suggested to me - they feel a little squishy on the bumps. I realize thats likely what they are intended to do, i maybe just am not used to the firmer skinnier tires i rode last year. So far a solid B

My first race on the GK SK was called the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic which is part of the Triple Crown event series. This was a 60 mile gravel ride filled with non stop climbs and descents. I caught a sharp edge during my first 10 miles and nearly catapulted off of my bike. After I fixed the 34 slice, I not only finished the race, but have since ridden the same tires for thousands of gnarly gravel miles. This is an incredible gravel tire. The only drawback of the GK SK is that the rolling resistance on asphalt is a bit high. However if you plan on riding gravel, this is the tire for you. Once the tread is worn off these babies, I already have my replacement set ready to go.

Excellent Tubeless Gravel Tires

I mounted these on a pair of American Classic AC28 rims and they were easy to set up and sat correctly on the rim first time.

Been running Clement MSO and Challenge Gravel Grinder (not Tubeless) in the past. I expect to buy replacement panaracer when I need a new pair.

Finally we have an option to be more adventurous on our road bike with more confidence. The SK thread pattern is just perfect for the fire roads even if its a little loose. Just a little more bite. You know when youre out there anything that help for you not to get stuck matters! Good job panaracer for making this small enough for bikes that can only accommodate smaller size tires.

Running them tubeless.. easy mounting and installation. Limit psi to 65 rear (55 front).. ride great... good traction and cornering. Tubeless bike tires are too expensive now.. this one less than some... decent value overall. I'll look at Panaracer tires next time around.

Fast rolling tubeless gravel tire at a great price
rating
by San Jose Cx

I've found this to be a fast rolling gravel tire. I purchased the 38mm tire and mounted them on a rim with internal width of 19mm, the mounted tire measured 38mm. Fairly easy to mount and inflate on a DT swiss rim. The tire held air when first mounted. With the addition of sealant the tire barely looses any air between rides. The tread pattern is unique. The center tread pattern help this tire rolls fast and provides very good traction when climbing. The side knobs are a bit unconventional. Each knob is linked to the next knob with solid strip of tread. its basically on continuous patterm with knobs interspersed. The tire corners ok compared to a cyclocross tire. I guess gravel tires probably don't have to corner as good as cx tires.

Unfortunately i got a sidewall cut after only 200 miles. Sealant could only hold pressrue around 20 psi, so I am now running the tire with a tube. The sidewall cut happened when I was riding a pretty rocky section of gravel so that may just be normal wear and tear. I would still recommend this tire.

I purchased the 35mm version of these tires to run my CX bike in a 75 mile gravel race. They set up tubeless on my Stans Avion wheels easily, and I was very pleased with how they performed in a variety of conditions from wet, slick grass to chunky, loose gravel. Recommended.

I bought this for gravel rides and lousy pavement but they actually roll really well! Sure they are heavy so they dont accelerate well but once up to speed they roll over everything. 45 psi with the 38c on a wide rim works great!

I've been using the Gravel King SK on my cyclocross bike for about a year and a half. It's does a great job on gravel. I've raced gravel and cyclocross with it. It's a great overall tire.

The wear on the tire is above average. I rotate front tire to back and replace and have no problem getting 2 seasons out of it.

I run these tubeless. They were easy to setup and I've never had any punctures, even when I roll single track.

I searched high and low to find a tire that I could use on my older model Specialized Roubaix for gravel road racing. Most of the gravel tires are too wide to fit in this bikes more

Traditional road bike geometry.

The ultegra road brakes in particular wont fit a tire wider than 26

Voila- Panaracer to the rescue- these tires fit in the frame and under the brakes. They are tough and offer excellent grip on dirt roads and through the corners. Lighter than a CX tire and roll faster when you hit the pavement too!

I love these tires- good work Panaracer!!
