Tubeless Cyclo Cross...Wow...!
Just put a pair of these on some 27mm wide tubeless rims. Was torn on what to get, tubeless selection of tires is expensive to guess the wrong ones. These were advertised as super-tires for all terrain except on Hard Pack they were slow.
That was Maxxis being modest. These tires are great on EVERYTHING. They roll fast on my Cyclo-cross 18 MPH with no effort or noise. They also suggest mixing this tire with the other one. Do not do that. Get (2) of these.
On the trails they really kick-it. My test trails have a mix of every terrain. Sand, mud, hard pack, roots, rocks, loose sand... everything, and with lots of twisty turns, and blind corners. These are trails that are for my 27.5 x 3.0 and these skinny tires Kick-It. Was very surprised a few times when I expected the rear to slip out on tight turns. I hope they last for 1000' miles....but I expect some tire damage by the end of summer... will report back.Pros:
Super Fast on Road. Super Control on Gravel, Hard-Pack, loose sand, Mud sheds well, twisty Turns... everything a regular 2.2inch tire can do.Cons:
Not sure just yet. I have never rated tires before, and would never give anything 5 stars... but here I did.Would Buy Again:
