The Cannonball was designed to be a first-choice gravel racing tyre. The directional, tight-knit center tread efficiently sheds dirt and debris to decrease rolling resistance, while the side knobs provide effective cornering traction.

Formally known as Premium, the durable casing features a layer of woven aramid fiber reinforcement between the outer rubber and the inner casing. This material is twice as strong as Kevlar and lighter in weight than any competitive product. Located under the sidewall of the tyre, it provides moderate protection against abrasion and sharp gravel that may result in a flat tyre.
LIGHT & SUPPLE CASING
When extra puncture protection isn’t necessary, the light and supple casing offers decreased weight and a comfortable, ultra-supple ride quality at lower pressures when set up tubeless.
“The DK200 is always a challenge and 2015 served up the biggest one yet with an epic muddy disorder. Record-setting rain the weeks prior meant miles of Kanza roads had been turned into wartime, muddy trenches. This meant I needed a tire capable of not only handling the DK flint that loves to slice tires, but also something that could float and give me some traction in the muddy stuff. The Cannonballs did an amazing job with the flint. They never flatted, and they helped me survive the miles of peanut butter mud. I came to trust them quickly and this allowed me to use the 38mm tubeless width to float over the rocky sections. These great tires helped me to 9th place and kept me rolling all day in “less than ideal” conditions!”
