New Donnelly gravel tires named in honor of Emporia, Kansas

Published December 12, 2018

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Donnelly Cycling's new gravel tire is called the EMP, in honor of Emporia, Kansas, the home of the Dirty Kanza race.

The EMP has the most aggresive tread of Donnelly's gravel tires. Beefy side knobs borrowed from Donnelly's BOS cyclocross tire offer cornering control, and the integrated protection belt helps ward off punctures. The center tread design borrows slightly from Donnelly's MSO model, which to date was considered the brand's most aggressive gravel tire.

The EMP will be launched with a 700 x 38 tubeless-ready model retailing for $72 and in a 60 tpi foldable bead for $47. Next spring Donnelly will roll out the model in two more versions: 700 x 45 tubeless-ready ($72) and 700 x 45 60 tpi ($47).
