Acknowledging the breadth of the gravel spectrum, French tyre brand Hutchinson, has released an off-road tyre designed for “muddy woodland trails to super technical rocky descents”, whilst seeking not to sacrifice the “fast rolling speed” Hutchinson claims its tyres are renowned for.

The tread pattern is said to have drawn inspiration from Hutchinson’s Black Mamba cross-country MTB tyre for a “more secure feel through the most technical of routes”. To boost its clag-coping abilities, all but the most important tread blocks have been removed in order to provide as much mud clearance as possible.
