Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I don't run them tubeless, but if I had tubeless rims I would.

Great all round tire! Low rolling resistance on pavement and good bite on the loose stuff.

Thanks, do you know what your tires weigh, as in actual weight in grams? My experience with conti tires is they are usually more narrow and heavier than manufacturer claims.

I run Conti 35 cross tires tubeless and have had zero problems.

To be fair they are a very porous tire and it took several days for them to seal (I laid them flat across a trash can overnite on each side). You could actually see the Orange Seal dots on the sidewall of the tire while they were sealing off. When they finally sealed they are great tires.

I ran DK 100 this year and done some other tough gravel rides on this setup with no issues and no flats. I did run over a nail that went through the slick and came out the sidewall of the tire and since the nail would not let the Orange Seal work the tire did go flat. We stopped pulled the nail aired up the tire and turned the hole towards the ground. The tire sealed off and I rode another 32 miles.

I tried and tried to get Speed Rides and Cross Rides (both 42mm, folding bead) to seal up tubeless to no avail, even on Stan's Crest rims. the bead is just too loose. a friend of mine get some to seal up on a Stan's rim, only to have the tire blast off the rim a few minutes later as he was test-riding it. not worth the risk, IMO.
