TERAVAIL TIRES: OUR COMPLETE LINE
Here at Teravail, we make tires in a wide variety of tread patterns, casing constructions, and sizes to cover the near-infinite number of riding conditions out there. We design every tire to excel in specific terrain based on our extensive experience and testing. We believe that tires should enhance the ride experience for a better connection with the places you ride.
Here’s a look at our full tire lineup and how to choose the one that will best serve your needs.
How to Choose the Right Bike Tires
With all of the tire options out there, how do you choose the one that’s right for you? We find it’s best to start by selecting the right tread pattern for your local terrain and riding style.
- What surfaces do you ride on most? Large, loose gravel? Smooth dirt? Cracked pavement? Rocky, rooty singletrack?
- What sort of performance do you want from your tires? Full confidence when cornering in loose terrain? Maximum rolling efficiency for long stretches of gravel?
All-Road and Gravel Tires

Just So You Know: Your front and rear tires don’t have to match. You can customize the way your bike behaves by experimenting with front and rear tire combinations. Many riders opt for a more open and aggressive tread in the front (like Kessel) for cornering performance, with lower-profile tread in the rear (like Ehline) for rolling efficiency.
Choosing the Right Tire Construction
Once you have a tread pattern in mind, you can further dial in your desired performance, ride quality, and durability with one of our three casing options:
- LIGHT AND SUPPLE – Light and cushy ride feel, but with less puncture protection than its durable counterparts. This is ideal for riders looking to minimize weight and maximize comfort.
- DURABLE – Robust composition with a woven nylon layer in the sidewall and tread cap to protect the tire against punctures, abrasions, and lacerations. This is the sweet spot for riders seeking a stable and reliable touring setup or those who like ride in sharp, rocky environments.
- ULTRA DURABLE (SELECT TIRES ONLY)– The same as our Durable casing, with an additional ½ ply of 120tpi casing and apex wedges for extra insurance against abrasion and a line of defense against sharp impacts to your rim.
Choosing the Right Tire Size
Finally, you’ll want to consider what size tire works best with your frame and your riding needs. There are several factors that go into choosing the right size, so we made a separate article to explain it all. Read our tire size guide here.
