Feel Like A Winner With This Race Day Tire
When your bike's tires seem to be wearing a little thin, you know it's time to upgrade. No matter if you prefer gravel or dirt, the Panaracer GravelKing SS is the ultimate race day tire. With durable construction and the power to crush through long miles of gravel, you'll be on a whole new level with these 650b tires.
The SS features an all-new tread pattern consisting of a smoother, diamond pattern center with more aggressive side lugs. This tread pattern allows the rider to keep the speed going into corners and maintain control throughout any transition a gravel ride could present. The GravelKing SS incorporates a supple 126 TPI casing with a nylon puncture-resistant belt and Panaracer's proprietary ZSG (Zero Slip Grip) compound. For those extra demanding courses or rides with sharp flint rock, the SS is the tire for you.
Make the most of your next race day with the Panaracer GravelKing SS 650b Tire for any of your dryer gravel and dirt needs. Featuring advanced extra alpha cord protection on the casting, this construction allows for a winning ride every time.

Stiff yet fragile
Bought these because I wanted a fast Groad tire with enough volume to handle some fast descending over the rough stuff.
Very stiff side walls take away corning feel and make for a rough ride until you drop the pressure down to nearly 20psi.
2nd ride out, on a well maintained almost 2 lane gravel road, I hit something and ended up with a slice as wide as my finger plus a second hole near the bead.
