WTB Resolute – TCS Light/Fast Rolling SG2 700C / 650b
WTB Resolute – TCS Light/Fast Rolling SG2 700C / 650b

WTB Resolute – TCS Light/Fast Rolling SG2 700C / 650b is a gravel tyre with a large cube and tread similar to typical MTB tyres.

? Pluses:

  • It is adapted to tough, wet and muddy conditions.
  • The tyre is equipped with the SG2 anti-puncture layer, which makes it even more resistant to various types of spikes, thin stones and sharp objects.
  • The gravel tyre has a fairly low pressure range recommended by the manufacturer – 25-50 psi.
  • The tyre weight for size 700C is 565 grams and for 650b it is 525 grams.

? Minuses:

  • Due to its characteristics, rolling resistance on asphalt will be noticeable here, but it should be noted that it was designed for very demanding terrain. It is worth noting, however, that the tread in the centre of the tyre has been placed quite densely, which should still reduce its resistance to the asphalt and reduce rolling noise.
  • A notable downside so far is that it only comes in a 42 mm wide size.

WTB Byway 700C / 650b is a versatile fast gravel semi-slick tyre for both on-road and gravel riding. Only wet muddy or grassy surfaces will pose a problem for it.

  • The tyre features a smooth central tread that flows seamlessly into a textured intermediate section and then into the outermost lug to provide unwavering traction on loose ground and gravel
  • Side tread extends all the way down the sidewalls for an extra level of protection
  • At this point it is worth noting that the Byway model is an identical replacement for the previous Exposure model. The manufacturer changed its name in order to standardise the naming structure, in which all tyres are named according to their tread pattern

? Pluses:

  • The tyre is well suited for dry conditions, asphalt, gravel and gravel
  • The tyres in several variants have the SG2 anti-puncture layer, which makes them even more resistant to thorns, thin stones and sharp objects of all kinds
  • The gravel tyre has a fairly low recommended pressure range by the manufacturer depending on the model – 25-60 psi
  • Tyre weight for size 700c x 34mm is 394 grams
  • Available in various widths 34 – 47 mm
  • Different colour variants available
  • Suitable for tubeless kits – Tubeless ready
  • High durability

? Minuses:

  • Not suitable for wet mud, grass or snow
  • To take full advantage of its properties, great care must be taken with the pressure range used

WTB Gravel tyres are mainly built on rubber compounds such as:

  • Dual DNA
  • DNA
  • Distance+

Gravel Tyres Maxxis Receptor 700C 650b
Gravel Tyres Maxxis Receptor 700C 650b tread

The Maxxis Receptor 700C / 650b is a fast, semi-slick gravel tyre for asphalt roads, with an upper tread pattern similar to endurance road tyres.

? Pluses:

  • Low weight: 429 grams (700C), 484 grams (650b)
  • Low rolling resistance on asphalt and paved roads
  • Puncture resistance thanks to EXO puncture protection layer
  • Tubeless ready

? Minuses:

  • The tyre is not designed for use on demanding wet or muddy terrain
  • Poor grip on gravel bends

Gravel Tyres 2021

If you’re wondering which gravel bike tyres to choose, the gravel tyre ranking above will certainly help. We have taken into account as many factors as possible in the compilation. You will also find tyres that belong to other categories, such as road, cross-country and MTB. However, it is worth noting that most of these are tyres whose manufacturers classify them as gravel tyres.

Which gravel tyres should I choose?

When planning to buy gravel tyres, you must individually identify the tyre parameters that best meet your expectations. Only the resultant of all these factors will allow you to choose which gravel tyres are best for you, whether they fit the size of your gravel wheels, the width of your rims and whether you have the right budget to buy them. Therefore, when choosing gravel tyres, it is worth considering factors such as:

  • wheel size – you probably have the most popular wheel size, 700C, but you may also have 650b
  • rim width
  • budget
  • width of the front fork and the rear triangle in the frame
  • the maximum acceptable tyre weight for you
  • tubed or tubeless
  • tread type
  • Your weight and the weight of your bike and planned equipment

All-round gravel tyres

The best all-round gravel tyres combine features such as:

  • good grip
  • good amortisation
  • low rolling resistance on asphalt
  • low weight
  • ready for installation without inner tubes
