The CG All Condition is the multi-purpose option in Panaracer’s Cedric Gracia signature rubber range. Panaracer make great tyre bases and the pinch-puncture shrugging carcass here is no exception.
It has great straight-line confidence when speed and impact increase. The multi-directional tread design with deep sipes and soft sub-compound moulds really well to surfaces too, so there’s plenty of grip in dry, loose or rocky conditions.
Mobile shoulder knobs mean it’s a decent drifter too. The hard top compound makes it slippery on damp roots and rocks though. The soft sub-compound gets ragged quickly when ridden hard too.
