It’s Spring time, and we (Panaracer tire fans) all know what that means… the new Limited color GravelKings are here! We’ve all been waiting and kept in the dark for long enough. So, without further ado, we are here to announce the new 2023 Panaracer GravelKing limited colors.
The new colors for this year are Sunset Orange and Turquoise Blue. The new tires will be applied to three models, the GravelKing, GravelKing SS (semi-slick), and the GravelKing SK (semi-knob). They’ll also be offered in 12 different size and width variations as well.

The new colors are vibrant and fun. Panaracer says the Sunset Orange “brings a warm sunset glow to your ride any time of the day.” It’s a bright color, no doubt, and would indeed help personalize your current steed and really “pop” on most frames.
Panaracer’s thoughts on Turquoise Blue are that it “brings the calm vibrancy of both sea and sky”. The Turquoise Blue looks great on the gray Canyon in the above photo, and would look exceptional on brighter-colored frames or when getting matchy-matchy with other accessories or bits on the bike.
The GravelKing OG tread is most happy when ridden on paved roads and light gravel, making it one of the most popular gravel tires out there. Available in either black or brown sidewalls and come in sizes 700c x 32mm and 700c x 38mm. 650b sizes are not available.
GravelKing SS (semi-slick)
The GravelKing SS can do it all. Really cut out to be used on drier terrain, the SS can excel on or off-road. It uses a fast-rolling center and is supported by strong side rails to help when cornering. Available in either black or brown sidewalls and sizes 700c x 32mm, 700c x 38mm, and 700c x 43mm. 650b sizes are not available.
GravelKing SK (semi-knob)
Pnanracer says that the GravelKing SK is “the best all-around gravel tire available”. And if you’ve ridden a pair, you may agree. This tire is best suited for all riding, except maybe the roughest, muddiest conditions. The SK is a tire you can mount and forget. Available in either black or brown sidewalls and just like the SS version, sizes 700c x 32mm, 700c x 38mm, and 700c x 43mm. 650b sizes are not available.
All of the Limited Color GravelKing tires feature the same durable, abrasion-resistant construction highlights as the regular GravelKing offerings. Like ZSG Natural Compound, the lightweight and shock absorbing AX-a casing, and Anti-Flat casing.
This year’s new colors look like fun, but they are also limited in their quantities, so don’t dilly-dally and wait around, Panaracer says, “once they’re gone… they’re gone for good”.
The new 2023 colors are available for purchase on April 7th, from your local Panaracer dealer.
