Designed for UK trails, the TrailRaker does a very good job of taming them. On adverse cambers, or climbing the last shove over a steep lip the tall and widely spaced knobs prove their worth in spades, sticking the tyre to the ground the instant it is needed. Panaracer has put the beef of the tread in the centre of the tyre where is can provide stability on cambers, but it’s not so tall or hard that wet rocks become a lottery. In wet sand and loam the grip is excellent and in real clag the tyre pulls through with tread to spare. It also clears very quickly. A new addition to the TrailRaker family is the PR (Puncture Resistant), which weighs 610g and costs £2 more. A UST tubeless version is also available.
