Pasela pace setter.

The Panaracer Pasela has long been the go anywhere tire of dedicated off-season roadies, commuters, and adventurers alike. Now with a ProTite belt under the tread that's 24% more effective than the previous PT puncture protection, you can jump your Paselas into questionable terrain with more confidence than ever. It still features tough 400D Cord casing reinforcement to ward off sidewall damage and give you more cornering traction at lower pressures, and of course, its chevron-patterned tread and all-conditions rubber compound will leave you with thousands of happy, worry-free miles.

Available in folding or wire bead options. Claimed weights are 280 g (700c x 28 mm, folding) and 330 g (700c x 28 mm, wire).

The 700 x 28 is adequate, but is definitely not a 28mm wide tire

The context I bought a set of the Pasela 700 x 28 tires to mount on Mavic Open Pro wheels underneath a vintage steel bike. The bike is set up as a road racing bike from the late 70's. I'm a 60kg132lb rider and I take this bike over urban streets and gravel roads in the Portland area. This is an initial impression so rain and worse road conditions might change the evaluation. The tires were mounted with Conti Race butyl tubes and inflated to recommended pressure for evaluation, then deflated to 85psi for riding.

First, these tires, when inflated to recommended 105psi measure just 25mm compared to the stated 28mm. That is a substantial difference and a disappointment as my interest was in a wider tire for both performance and comfort over long distances.

The ride On smooth pavement, these tires proved very quiet and smooth with good cornering. But, in Portland, our streets are generally not like that. Once on rougher pavement, the typical Portland street, the ride was a no longer quiet and smooth. I think this has more to do with the tire width than the materials or air pressure. Once on minimal gravel conditions, the Columbia Slough path, the tires behaved well, but as you would expect from a 25 or narrower tire. It negotiated the fine and occasionally soft gravel adequately. In softer ground, they proved a very nice ride.

Overall If I had known the actual width of the tire is as it has proven to be, I may have gone to the 32mm, assuming it is narrower than stated. If it is proportionally narrower, it would be a 28 and ideal for my purposes. On the plus side, these tires look good, are reasonably priced especially for gum walls, and seem to have many admirers.

I use these as my daily driver on a disc gravel bike that's a fenderlight commuter bike all winter. I rode a set of these into the proverbial ground with only one flat in 18 months of riding. Nice road feel, light weight and a plenty durable. All for a super good price relative to the market (at least IMO). Hard to beat for the money.

I have run Paselas in various sizes on gravel, touring and commuting rigs for a couple years. I bought these for my wife's commutingtouring bike and I am never worried that she'll find herself stopped to fix a flat during her ride home, and the rubber is sticky as hell on Seattle's slick streets.

I have used Panaracer tires before and thought these would be just fine. They are okay but are not what I was expecting, however will continue to use them. Not sure but it maybe the rims I have them. Hope they are more like what I wanted after I chance rems and tubes.

I've been using these tires and it's predecessor for 20 years. I have crossed the country and I didn't have a single flat in the whole distance. They are relatively light, fold and mount easily. My only complaint would be the tan sidewalls deteriorate and look shabby.

This is my go-to commuter tire. I'm currently running a 35 on the back and a 32 on the front. Easy to mount, stylish and puncture resistant. I feel a nice grab on the corners yet a suppleness and road-buzz cancelling quality that is very comfortable. I'll always use these on my winter commutertouring bike!

The Paselas last a long time, have better than average traction, very good resistance to punctures. The gum sidewall never showed any wear in spite of often being ridden on trails. There are probably faster tires but these are the right tire for me.

I've been riding Pasela ProTite tires for years. They are lightest in their class, roll smoothly, offer low rolling resistance, transition to dirt well, and despite their suppleness, they're very tough and last a long time. Yes, I can find tires that do any one of these attributes better, but those "better" attributes result in either heavy, slow, stiff or less durable tires.

Im a bike commuter that cycles to work and sometime to the store. Also a attend group rides thats average over 50miles. Best thing about these tires or the yellow side walls. For two reasons, looks and comfort. They are really thin and I guess it was designed that way to cushion the bumps on the road. Theyre really fast. Because it has great grip can put the power to the ground quickly. Proof is on Strava where I have 3 KOMs with this tires so fare. Also every time Im on a group ride people always compliment my rear tire. The Bad thing about it is you can only truly ride it on the road and cobble stones. Any time I ride on grass which may have something as small as a needle or a paper clip it will puncture very easily. It happened to me twice my first month riding with it, because I like taking shortcuts to work. So I had to change my routes to stay on the road. Best advice with this tire is to only use it for the rear. Thats where you need the power.

somewhat cushy good for road/rough road/occasional gravel

Been using these for few five years commuting and going on longer bike rides. We typically ride on asphalt, however we almost end up riding gravel for cut offs, or short cuts to get from one area to another. These hold up pretty well; only had one failure due to a sharp object penetrating the tread. No tire likely would have survived that.

I got these to make my gravel bike a little faster on the roads, and was not disappointed. These tires offer awesome all season traction at an affordable price. I have roughly 400 miles in mine and they are still looking/riding like new. Not to mention the gumwall sidewalls looks really nice.

I use these tires (700x32) on my commutergravel bike. I'd go one size larger (700x35) but I can't fit with fenders. Nevertheless, the 32s are very comfortable and relatively light weight (I got the folding version). Panaracer makes quality tires.

They are plush, cushy, and a joy to ride.

i live in nyc and ride everywhere i go year round, the roads are full of broken glass, widow-maker pot holes, left over winter sand, and all sorts of weirdgross things waiting to give you a puncture or worse. these tires have made my rides and commutes so much more comfortable. I'm running the 35mm's and they're great. Grippy, supple, tough, fast rolling. All the things i thought i'd have to pay $50ea for. And my bike looks pretty pretty good with the tan side walls.
