Announced a few weeks ago, this year’s special edition Flamingo Pink and Pansy Blue Panaracer Gravelking tires are now available for order, and they say they’ll sell out like every other year.
These single-run, limited edition colored Gravelking tires are made with the same ZSG tire compound technology, anti-flat casing and 120tpi construction as the others, just with new colors on the outside. All Gravelking tires 32mm and wider are tubeless compatible.
These limited edition colors have a brown sidewall and are available in 700×32 and 700×38 sizes with the SS, SK and Slick thread patterns. All tires are $49.99 each, available only through Panaracer at the links below. Here they are from smoothest to knobbiest:
The Gravelking Slick has barely a tread on it, with slight file patterns across the surface. Claimed weights are 290g and 330g with a max tire pressure of 95psi for the 32mm wide version, and 75psi for the wider 38mm. Get it here.
The Gravelking SS (semi-slick) keeps the nearly smooth center section but adds a small row of dots off to the side of that, followed by longer, but still low profile, blocks of tread to help it hold through the dusty corners. They weighs in at 320g and 410g depending on size. Same tire pressure recommendations here and on the SK below, but chances are you can (should) be running much lower pressures than that. Get them here.
The Gravelking SK (semi-knob) is the burliest of the bunch, but remains more of a fast-rolling design for real gravel roads…as opposed to rides that end up on singletrack. Claimed weights are 380g and 420g each. Get them here.
