Tried most of the top tier gravel tires, settled on these. As a racer, puncture resistance is at the top of my list second is low rolling resistance. Other tires do this well but give up shock absorption of grip. The Power Gravels have great shock absorption and grip. The tradeoff is faster wear than some other gravel tires. For me, that's acceptable. I don't care how long a tire lasts if I'm constantly getting flats and crashing because of low grip. Raced BWR, Unbound and Crusher in the Tushar as well as weekly training rides on mine. Mostly hardpack or loose over hardpack. My theory as to why they ride and grip sop well is that the puncture belt is stretchy. That allows some suppleness. I've ridden other tires with good puncture resistance that rode like rocks unless you ran them with almost no air in them. My 40C Michelins are still supple at 32-34psi.
Yes, I recommend this tire

A good tyre but Impossible to fit
July 15, 2021
As has been said here this is a decent tyre but frankly useless because it is near impossible to mount it even in the workshop with many tools .... on the road if a tube was needed, well, just ring the taxi and give up would be my advice. Shame but if you still want some, I have 2 brand new 35-622 available

Currently run 3000 miles on the front tyre in 700-35 (600 of which on rear wheel) with only one puncture (after 100 miles!). Ran 2000 miles on the rear 700-35 tyre (600 on the front). Have a 700-33 on the rear which has run 1000 miles and just about worn out. Have done mainly tarmac, a bit of light off road and recently some really brutal off-road gravel, which did punish the rear tyre. Amazing grip on loose road surfaces (the country roads I normally ride are pretty sketchy) and light off-road. Low rolling resistance is brilliant even with 700-35. Yes, they are tight to fit (compared to mountain bike tyres), even on UST rims, but if you fit as per the instructions and take it carefully they are no worse than 700C road bike tyres. I will definitely replace with more Power Gravel, and will try 700-40 to see if they last even longer.
