Closeup of a Teravail Washburn tire mounted on a bike

The Washburn is a high-performance tire suitable for gravel and all-road riding. Designed for rides that cover everything from rough pavement to fast gravel, it’s a tire that can put you on the podium on Saturday and take you to work on Monday.

A slick center tread improves rolling efficiency for floating over dirt and gravel or urban asphalt. Progressive transition lugs and tall side lugs are spaced out to shed debris and provide progressive grip in turns and loose terrain.

To suit rider preferences and fit a variety of all-road and gravel bikes, we offer the Washburn in the following sizes:

  • 700c x 38 mm
  • 700c x 42 mm
  • 650b x 47 mm
Left diagram shows Washburn tires with light and supple casing. Right diagram shows the Washburn's durable casing structure.

Washburn riders have the option of two different casings. Our 60 TPI Durable casing features a robust woven nylon composite reinforcement between the outer rubber and the inner casing within the sidewalls to prevent tearing and abrasions. Our Light and Supple casing provides superior ride quality and lighter weight if extra flat protection is unnecessary. Washburn is available with a tan sidewall or standard black sidewall.
