Not all gravel roads are created equal. The Teravail Cannonball Tire is made for the nasty stuff. With an intentional tread design, sidewall slicing, razor-sharp flint stands no chance against the Cannonball. It comes as no surprise that the Teravail Cannonball is the official tire of the Dirty Kanza 200. The race covers 200 grueling miles over the flint hills of Kansas and is widely considered one of the premier gravel events in all cycling. It was prototyped along this course and the end result is incredible. We know you will love and more importantly respect the Teravail Cannonball.
There is no one size fits all gravel tire. If your ride covers loose, sharp, and unforgiving gravel roads then the Teravail Cannonball is the tire for you.
Tree Fort Bike's recommends that you setup your tires using only Stan''s No Tubes sealant.
About the Durable Casing:
Our durable casing features a layer of woven aramid fiber reinforcement between the outer rubber and the inner casing. This material is twice as strong than Kevlar and lighter in weight than any competitive product. Located under the sidewall of the tire, it provides moderate protection against abrasion and sharp trail debris that may result in a flat tire.
"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!"
