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.

Old Fart Triker

I ride a Terra Trike Rambler All Terrain, the Green one. 2020 model.
I'm running a Maxxis Minion DHII something or other with all kinds of 3C max grip, WT such ~n~ badging,
The most expensive model they make Is on the back of my trike. I also run the tire in reverse for that extra bit of climbing traction.
I got a good max wide fit with the 24 x 2.4 wide. Tubed and 15 psi works for me.
Me, an In shape 160 pounds, with a full load out my chain's pull 220-230 pounds up.
My chains, My Tadpole runs with 2 3/4 full bike chains, It's a recumbent thang.
Got a couple of the stock Schwalbe Smart Sam's out front.

I gravel grind, Big Frog Mountain logging roads are among some of my routs. I do lots of hard steep climbs and
will probably die on a down hill run at any time.

My question, are there any 24 x at least 2.1 inch wide tires with treads designed specifically for gravel?

24 x 2.4 or maybe a 2.5 wide would be a max fit on my tail and I'd like that.
Out Front 2.2 to 2.4 wide would work.

These are pretty uncommon, but a Google Search on "24 inch gravel tire" shows a few options by Schwalbe, Specialized and Maxxis. They are mountain bike-ish so I'd go with the ones with the smaller knobs...
