On a tire info binge recently.

Anyone used these? Seem suited to road as well, despite the name.

They look like Panaracers budget version of Compass tires (which I think are made by Panaracer as well).

Maybe a step up from Paselas? A little faster and lighter.

I don't see what makes it suitable for dirt over other road tires. The Gravel King only goes to 28mm, which I think is too narrow for a versitile dirt/road tire. I use 35mm Paselas for lots of long distance gravel/cross/whatever rides. So to answer your question, I think these will be a nice road tire, a step up from Paselas.

No idea why they are called this either, apparently gravel racing is big in Europe maybe? But I think they come in larger sizes or will soon (although not relevant to me as I'd be using them in 28 for the road but during the winter the shoulders of roads in NY are more like gravel).

Late to the party. I use Gravel King 28's for my commuter and they ride smooth. Durable so far, no punctures after a few hundred miles. The file tread is gone on the rear. I like them for the price.
