Compass's Steilacoom tires are named after a famous cyclocross course near Seattle, but these tires are designed to perform well beyond just 'cross courses. On the road, even in hairpin corners, the tires handle amazingly because of the equally distributed rubber knobs. These knobs are big enough so they don't 'squirm' while railing corners on-road, they grip nicely off-road, and are far enough apart for mud to clear out. That being said, these features make this type of tire perfect for tackling grassy, muddy cyclocross courses or long gravel grinders.

Not sure what kind of powder puff gravel they have in Steliacoom, Washington but these don't hold up to the gravel in North Georgia.
180 lb rider, 37 PSI on 24 mm inside width rims. Ride aggressively or race pace and the sidewalls will fail. 8 months and I'm on my third rear tire.
They roll really nice and are fun to ride but are not durable enough for the forest service roads in the Blue Ridge and Cohutta Mountains of North Georgia.
