If you’re a bikepacker looking for new rubber, there’s a good chance you’ve come across Teravail’s growing lineup of condition-specific tires. A few of us have had the chance to test out both their plus-sized mountain bike and skinnier gravel tires over the last couple of years, and overall we’ve been impressed. Today, Teravail announced their new Kessel tire, filling in the all-mountain/enduro side of its lineup.

The Kessel is their most aggressive tire to date. Available in both 27.5″ and 29″ sizes, in standard black or a classic tan sidewall, with several different widths to choose from. There are two different compounds available; the standard 60TPI durable casing or their new Ultra-Durable casing which adds an additional 1/2 ply of 120TPI which increases “sidewall protection and extra puncture defense in the tread cap plus butyl inserts to further strengthen the sidewalls of the tire,” as Teravail puts it.
