- Tyres for gravel
So I’ve taken the plunge and ordered a gravel bike which I will be using for most of my winter riding on the North York Moors area and my local bridalways and tracks.Posted 4 months ago
What tyres are you guys using?
It comes with Vittoria revolution G+ Graphene which it says are for light off road use. Whadda ya reckon?hollyboniMember
Can’t go wrong with GravelKing SKs (how could you go wrong with a tire named like that?).
They have more traction everywhere than a slick, but they barely feel any slower. They aren’t super heavy, or super thin and fragile. They are pretty darn durable. They are available in a bunch of sizes, multiple colors, and now even a “Plus” version with a bit more protection.
I’ve ridden mine pretty much everywhere. Pavement, gravel, dirt roads, rocky singletrack etc. Zero issues, love them.Posted 4 months agoeasilyMember
I’d give the Revolutions a try. I’ve been using mine for about 6 months and I like them.
Fast on tarmac
good for ‘fun’ off road stuff
great on canal paths, dry mud tracks, dry grass, etc.
no punctures so far, and seem to be wearing ok
useless on wet grass
quite slippy on wet mud
silly reflective stripe.
They are not ‘serious’ off road tyres, but for my commute and general messing around I’m very happy. Not a bad tyre to come with your bike.
If you decide not to use them you could bung them my way 🙂Posted 4 months ago
