Ritchey Design 700 X 40mm Speedmax WCS Tires: At The Finish
This tire seems to me to be the “mountain biker’s gravel tire”. A tire for rougher adventures, dirt roads, mountains, and even light single track.
American Classic Kimberlite 700 X 40mm Tires: Checkpoint
It (the Kimberlite) felt less wooden and stiff than the previous versions of American Classic tires and more akin to a tire costing much more.
Goodyear County Tires: At The Finish
The County is the tire one should look to for mostly paved riding or where the unpaved roads are typically harder, smoother, and not covered in deep crushed rock.
American Classic Kimberlite 700 X 40mm Tires: Getting Rolling
The Kimberlite is a tire that American Classic says is meant for pavement and mixed-surface rides. However; here at Riding Gravel’s home, we have found that a minimal amount of tread works fine on deeper, loose gravel.

WTB Vulpine Tires: Checkpoint

WTB SG2 Gravel Tires: At The Finish
