Check out Kirk's comment last year...
https://forums.thepaceline.net/showp...38&postcount=2

Kirk pal's word is good enough for me. Bought 4 - 2X28mm, 2X25mm

Thanks for the link, Ed pal.

I would say they're like the Compass with the normal casing not the extralight casing. Excel has Panaracer EVO Competition SX in 25s and 28s. I have the 25s which measure out almost 28 on Boyd rims and they are spectacular. If the Compass extralight are even better I'd be blown away. These Panaracers are the nicest clincher I've used and at $42 an absolute steal.

I got the email two and bought a set to try out as well as some Gravel Kings to try out for $32 each. They have the Evo Race gravel tire for $34. I have a set and have been pleased.

I ordered 4 of the 28mm tires. I'm hoping they'll plump up to around 30mm on my vintage box section rims. Normally I like black sidewalls, but these are really nice.

I'd like to see the 32mm Race A Evo Gravel tire come back into stock too!

Y'all are tempting me like crazy, but I've valued flat resistance over #supplelife lately. My rides are too short to spend 10 minutes fixing a flat. I wonder how these would ride with a tube doped with just a bit of sealant in them or if that would defeat the purpose of such light tires.

They also have good prices on the 2-pack Vittoria G+, either Corsa or Control. Free shipping over $100.

Try out the Evo Gravel tires. Nice combo of go fast and durability.

To be honest I think these actually have pretty decent flat protection. At least as much as Corsa G+

I am so tempted but I already have probably two years worth of Schwalbe One 28mm and Panaracer Evo Gravel 32mm to get through.

Are these that good they are worth hoarding for a later date?

very tempting at this price, but i have a new resolution to not buy anything i do not intend to immediately use, and i have way more tires than i will ever wear out in the next several years.

let us know how they ride to anyone who bought a pair. i would specifically be interested in a comparison to the current vittoria G+ offerings...

At that price I picked up 4. I've had great experiences with the EVO A. Nice tires and a great company still making tires by hand with Japanese quality.

I think they blow the socks off the vittoria G+ (but keep in mind I must be the one outlier who thinks the G+ at least the 27mm ones are the definition of meh, particularly on wet pavement - I would never buy another pair).

I rode these panacer in 25s across France and Italy last summer - super ride and good durability.

I can't seem to find much info about these online. I see a lot of info about the race version, but not the competition
