Make your mark on the gravel scene with the Gravel Grinder. This tire combines a fast-rolling diamond center with aggressive shoulder knobs that only hook-up when the terrain gets soft, muddy, or a bit sketchy. This tire takes tubeless to a higher performance level by combining TLR's properties with a handmade construction for the ultimate in traction and ride quality. This tire includes PPS2, a combination of our sub-tread Puncture Protection System and an additional layer inside the casing to increase resistance to punctures. And, puncture protection is enhanced when combined with the appropriate tubeless sealant. Constructed with a 260TPI SuperPoly casing.
- Handmade tires combine many attributes to create the most comfortable and lowest rolling resistance tires.
- TLR tires versions can be ridden tubeless with the addition of sealant but can also be run with an inner tube.
- Handmade construction means maximum comfort. In this version, a bead-to-bead inner coating gives added puncture protection to these tubeless ready tires and greatly reduces gradual loss of air pressure. An aramid bead protection strip increases tire longevity and reduces rim chafing.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
