How do you make the Panaracer Gravelking SK, one of the best gravel-specific tyres on the market today, even better?

Simple. You make them available in color! Brown / tan sidewalls have been an option for a couple of years, but the new color options take it to a different level.

    No love for 650b?

      At this time, no, but I could see that changing later.

    What no 35’s!
    32’s are a little narrower than I like and not sure 38’s will fit in my cross frame.

    • JOM JOM

      Dennis, the decision is likely due to demand. The 38mm GK SK tyre has been very sought after.

    JOM, what size gravel king SK is your preferred size? What did you run at DK200?

    Many thanks,

    • JOM JOM

      Chris, my preferred size is 35mm or 38mm. I’ve run 38mm at DK200 the past two years. Sometimes I’m forced to run 35mm depending on the bike I’m using, all related to tyre clearance, etc.

    The 32c GK SK version is a slimmer 38c version? I mean it has still 3 rows of square knobs in the middle?
    Also do you know if and when they will be available in Europe?
    Riding the 38c now and they are great, but sometimes I wish they were just a bit faster on roads.

    no pics. of how it looks on the bike?

      If you read the article, you’ll see there will be a follow up posting of the tyres on bikes. Thanks.

    Oh dear, reminds me of the awful coloured tyres found on mtn bikes in the early 90’s, so very wrong ?

    20” in white, pink, and purple are the prettiest , according to the shoppers in that demographic at stores I’ve worked at.

    I’m waiting for gold sparkles to match my bike bling.
    Just sayin’

    That blue is wonderfully hideous. I must put it on my bike!

    Any word on a release date?

    • JOM JOM

      Sometime in September is all I know… sorry.

  12. Avatar Koyote

    Many years ago, in relation to some Michelin road tires that were available in different colors, I read that, due to the composition of black vs colored rubber, the colored tires would have slightly less grip than the straight black tires. I wonder if this is true of the GKs? (I also wonder if it was ever true – I don’t recall any more about the explanation.)

    • JOM JOM

      I have some miles on these already, negative on less grip in my experience.

      • Avatar Koyote

        Thanks for that info, JOM. Those green tires would look epic on my bike.

        • JOM JOM

          I have an article coming next week with the tyres mounted onto wheels and paired with two of my personal bikes.

    Awesome review and just what I was looking for. I am “hopeful” to make the DK200 lottery (hoping being 62 yrs old will help my chances), and looking for a tire that will provide the best protection for a rider over 200 lbs.
