Around Portland in the winter it seems like someone constantly shoots glass on the side of the roads with a cannon. I got tired of constantly repairing my Conti Gatorskins on every winter ride. So I tried these out. Exactly one flat in two years of winter riding, on a ride where everyone got a flat. The Maxxis, however, didn't actually flat until overnight in my garage. In short, great rolling resistance and puncture resistance. They seem to wear pretty well too. So for me, Maxxis Re-fuse on the rain bike and Conti Gatorskins on the dry bike
Spec'd at 850ish grams.
Best tire ever for cornering and grip in the steeps. Faster rolling than the HighRoller and hooks up in the corners MUCH better. Minion DHF eats loose rock for breakfast.
