Pirelli Cinturato Gravel H Tires: At The Finish

So who is this tire for…..They are the kind of rider that wants a bullet-proof, easy tubeless set up, a tire that doesn’t require baby-sitting in terms of air pressure retention, and a tire that wears well. That is a tough combination to get right, but I believe that Pirelli did get this right with the Cinturato Gravel H tires.

The tires we have are the blackwall versions, but Panaracer lists a skin wall version as well.
