Panaracer Aliso trail tire

Aliso, Romero and Driver now in 2.4 and 2.6


Panaracer is a revered brand when it comes to tires and we’re pleased to see this new trail tire offering called the Panaracer Aliso, named after a famous Southern CA trail. It’ll come in 2.4 and 2.6, packaged with lots of grip. Target weight is around 900 grams.

The Aliso has smaller center knobs but has very well-supported side knobs.

Highly awaited is the all-condition enduro race tire with excellent puncture resistance and all condition grip, the Panaracer Romero

It will come in 2.4 and 2.6 and will retail for $60

Key Features
Center and middle knobs are 3D designed to excel on all conditions while maintaining grip
Proprietary triple compound with high grip performance to withstand the demands of intense enduro racing and riding
Anti-flat plus casing reduces risk of punctures both at low and high speeds by reinforcing the tire at critical areas throughout and especially at the bead to reduce both pinch flats and punctures

All tires are going to be priced at $60

    Another DHR and DHF clone. No downsides there…these hit a good pricepoint, so if they’re a good weight/toughness then I’d ride them.

    Glad to see Panaracer making more tires and even naming after trails in my own backyard. Just a few comments:

    1. The video talks about a 3rd tire but didn’t give the name. That is the Driver Pro. That tire is crazy fast but I recommend the Puncture Resist (PR) version only or you will have issues (sidewall leaks and small thorn holes not sealing properly).

    2. Unfortunately Panaracer’s web site does not reflect any of these 3 tire updates yet: It would be good if they do this so folks can start reviewing. I reported other discrepancies in the past (e.g. incorrect tire width on Driver Pro PR), but they don’t seem to make updates to the site in a timely manner.

    3. It would be great if Panaracer would make a modern, multi-compound Tubeless 29er XC tire in a decent width (2.2 or higher). Something that can compete with Maxxis, Vittoria, etc. The DriverPro is more for race day only – and in super dry/smooth conditions only. Perhaps they have something now – but if so, the web site doesn’t show it.

    My Orange County buds and I are wondering what this “famous” Aliso Trail is. Maybe you mean the Aliso Creek paved bike path? Aliso Creek doubletrack? Or that 1000 ft-long overgrown connector in Chino Hills? We’ve clearly been behind the Orange Curtain too long – help us out.
