I don't have clearance for the 38/40 mm tires that everyone is going to these days. What is your favorite gravel tire under 35mm?

Looking for an all rounder.

I'm interested as well. My team was sponsored by Kenda for a few years, so I was running whatever we could order. My cx/gravel/adventure bike won't take much more than a 35.

Really liking the Sammy Slick that comes on the Warbird, comes in right at 35

I've heard good things on the Panaracer Gravel King SK's. 32/35/40 available.  For my next set I'll probably be running these.  Maybe a 40 in front and a 35 for the rear.

Has anyone used the Maxxis Raze for Gravel?

A buddy ran the Raze at the Gran Fondo Ephrata. Said they worked well. Pavement, sand, fresh gravel, chunky stuff, hardpack. Worn a bit, so the center tread was about 1/2 depth.

I can recommend the Gravel King SK32, especially if your frame cannot clear a bigger tire. I run these (as well as the 28c Gravel King ) on a Black Mountain Road bike: they roll FAST for a treaded tire, they feel lively (120 TPI sidewalls), and the cornering is very predictable. Admittedly, being only 32c they will not handle big or deep gravel as well as a bigger tire will, but I doubt you'll find a faster all-rounder in that size than the GK 32. I only have 700 or so dirt miles on them, all puncture free, but I compared them with the 35c Clement USH (which my frame clears just), and the GK was just a better, faster ride for what I do ( no mud, no rain in SoCal).
And the 28c Gravel Kings did 3500 miles, one puncture. I'm a big Panaracer fan!

For a tubed tire the Clement Xplor USH 35-622 is a great all around tire with a flat center tread and outside knobs. 
Anyone see something like this tubeless please let me know...

Another vote for gravel kings. Running 32's on 27mm wide rims tubeless. Fast tires as panaracers generally are. When conditions call for it, I switch to a 42 tire on a 650b wheel. Soma cazadero. Made by panaracer.

I just bought a Jamis Renegade with this exact tire.  I tried it at the listed minimum of 65 psi and it was still a little harsh.  I dropped the front to 50 psi which was better.  I weight 185 lbs - what is the minimum pressure you run?  Also, can this tire be set up tubeless with sealant?  

For the OP, it rolls smoothly on pavement.  I haven't had a chance to try it on gravel yet.

Jonz, the psi range on my tire is 55-90  I have had them as low as 45-50 and like them but I mostly use these on hard pack or for paved touring and keep them around 50 -60 I tried to set them up tubeless on some WTB Frequency I23  UST rims without success couldn't get the bead to set. Maybe others had better luck. 


Since I posted,  I discovered Kendas Flintridge pro tubeless ready and ordered a set in 700x35 tread pattern is simiilar with different knobs. Since I have gone tubeless on my other bike riding with tubes seems weird.KendaFlintridgePro2015-2.jpg

where did you order the flintridge 35s from?  I have the 40s but would like to try the 35s and can't find them anywhere.  Thanks!

Clement Strada USH looks real nice and tubeless design. Photo credit cxmagazine nahbs-gravel-tires-2016-img_4049-cxmagazine-ay-v2-750x500.jpg
