"Tires Made to Master Your Terrain"

If you've ever experienced the frustration of a mid-ride flat, then you'll appreciate all the engineering and testing that goes into Teravail Tires. David Gabrys and team take each tire from fledgling concept to prototype and then put them through the rigors of field and bench testing, making 100% sure they are competent and reliable before releasing them into the wild. As we learned, there is an awful lot that goes into making a tire ready for mass production, and a lot of thought is put into the intended use of a tire model to make sure the casing, sidewall construction, rubber compounds and tread pattern are optimized for the target terrain.

Teravail specializes in gravel road, all-road and off-road tires in many of today's popular sizes. The fact that their 700c Cannonball tire only comes in 35mm, 38mm and 42mm sizes gives you an idea of the kind of riding Teravail tailors their models for. They also carry 650b, 27.5, 26 and 29 offerings, so they have something for everyone. Keep an eye out for additional sizes to be added to the current models in August 2018, and for new models to be launched in early 2019.

It takes a village of really smart people to dream-up, concept, design, manufacture and test each Teravail Tire, so you can rest assured that by the time it meets your rim, it is ready for any gravel road, class IV road or singletrack you can throw at it.
