The Gravel King SK is one of our favorite tires for mixed terrain, delivering an ideal blend of pavement efficiency, off-road traction, cushioned ride and easy tubeless setup. Panaracer is now offering these modern classics with a purple or military green tread on a brown sidewall for extra style! Mount up a set of Gravel Kings, hit the road and see what you've been missing!
The Gravel King's square micro-knob tread pattern provides excellent traction without adding significant rolling resistance. The tight, tall and long shoulder ridges provide confident cornering in the dirt without squirming on pavement. They feature a lightweight bead-to-bead puncture protection layer that provides peace of mind without adding much weight or stiffness to the 126tpi casing.
Set them up tubeless on compatible rims to maximize their performance. We prefer Orange Seal sealant for its quick sealing and lack of funky, acrid odors. 2oz should be plenty for most sizes so one 4oz bottle will be enough if you're careful. Grab a spare if you tend to spill things, want to run a little extra sealant or aren't great at estimation.
