The Peak is Goodyear’s most aggressive gravel tyre, sitting in a compact range alongside the virtually slick County and the intermediate Connector. Even so, it’s still a pretty standard-looking tread pattern with small, closely packed knobs along the centre line and larger, more open lugs on the shoulders. This design gives decent rolling speed on tarmac or hardpack but still offers cornering grip in looser, off-road conditions. The tyre’s profile is more rounded than that of a mountain bike tyre, giving a smooth transition between the centre line and the shoulders. 

It’s at the knobblier end of gravel tyres, “with widely spaced blocks to aid grip and forward drive in wet or very loose conditions” according to Goodyear - perfect for year-round UK use then!

He can’t remember a time when he didn’t own a bike and has road, gravel, mountain and retro bikes in the shed. His favourite place to ride is the Dolomites, a simply stunning area which has breathtaking views and incredible roads combined with lovely food and great wine.

He prefers long, hot climbs in the big mountains, but as he lives on the edge of the Peak District he has to make do with short, cold climbs most of the time instead.
