Super secret tires to be released
Ohhhh, looks nice!
I hope that they do a tan wall version for the 650b model. Its available in the US but not in Europe
From my understanding they are to release lighter versions and wider versions!
Awesome, the weight is like the only complaint that I have… My favourite tire of all time for gravel and all round riding!
Just bought the old ones…
Considering the current state of parts availability, I will probably need new tires by the time I got these.
Lbs said they will be released in new sizes (including a sub 35 size), but no official date yet.
IMO a sub 400 gram (something like 380g) 700 x 35 would be perfect for gravel racing. This is assuming you are riding a modern wide rim.
Really depends on Surface. All gravel events I have taken part in were either too muddy, too sandy or had too coarse gravel for a 35 to be perfectly rideable.
Don’t see myself going below sub 40.
And where i live, i would love some 45s. Our gravel is sketchy and long hills.
Michigan gravel is perfect for that size unless it rains a lot. My 35 vittoria’s on a 32mm OD rim blow out to 38.5.
I wonder if specialized makes a 35 it will actually be a 38 and blow out to 40 on a very wide rim. That’s my hope.
they currently make a 38 that effectively is 40 or a tiny more on wider rims
Every race I have done in Michigan the fast guys have ran 32s
I just measured (at a shop) a Pathfinder 38 at 38.95 on a 25mm internal width rim.
I guess mine stretched out? As im bigger than that on 25 mm rims
Yea that is the 38mm tubeless version that they have had.
It says 32c though.
Oh wow I missed that, I’ve not seen a 32 and that’s something I’d be interested in!!
