Maxxis Re-Fuse Gravel Tire

The Maxxis Re-Fuse Gravel takes the tried-and-true formula of the Re-Fuse road tire and puts it in a larger volume package that's ready to be taken off the pavement.

The low-profile diamond-knurled tread gives it traction in loose conditions while maintaining all-out speed, and bead-to-bead MaxxShield protection underneath helps prevent sharp rocks and debris from getting through. The dual-rubber compound further increases durability, rolling efficiency, and cornering grip, and the 60 TPI casing is tubeless-ready for a hassle-free setup.

700c diameter. Folding bead. Available in multiple widths. Claimed weights are 390 g (32 mm) and 520 g (40 mm).

Plush ride is the best trait of these tubeless tires. The ride is so smooth.

Mounted on DT Swiss R460 rims with Dura Ace hubs on a decked out Peugeot PX 10 frame. Used as a rain bike and 20 mile ride into town. Love the soft, fast, and smooth ride. Still learning how to handle tubeless. Flatted from a roofing nail in pouring rain and didn't get sealed up. Finally did at home. I see them more as road tires than gravel, but do ride well on the packed light dry stuff. I do like the tires.

A great road/gravel tire for most of us
rating
by Anonymous

I've used the Maxxis Re-Fuse 700x40c for several years now. It's a very durable tire that rolls and definitely wears much better than most any road/gravel tire, including the Maxxis Rambler. This is not a weight weenie tire but those should be reserved for race days only. The Re-Fuse also works very well as rear tire for on-wheel trainers like the Kickr Snap. The convenience of being able to use the same tire for riding and training is tough to beat!

I've had some challenges airing it up tubeless with just a floor pump. You want to use plenty of soapy water with this one. It's not a great tire for low traction conditions.

This is one of those Maxxis tires that doesn't run smaller than marked - it's true to width (700x40c). Overall this is a great choice for anyone not needing to podium.

I ride my gravel bike on both gravel trails and asphalt and this tire provide a nice ride with little resistance on both surfaces. The tire replaced a slightly thinner tire with thicker more aggressive tread, so it was kind of an experiment, but I'm glad I made the change. Sounds silly but this tire gives me extra joy when I'm riding my gravel bike.

Not great in mud or loose gravel but I have a different bike for those conditions.

PS. I rated these tires a steal because I got them when they were on sale.

Extremely reliable tough tubeless road tire. I've taken staples and glass shards out that never broke the protection layer. Despite all the abuse they've had on my commuteradventure bike I've only noticed them need to seal one tiny pinhole, which they did fast with orange seal. I have the 32s, which measure 33 on a 21mm internal rim. I expected the ride to be fairly wooden and it is if you inflate to 55-60 psi. Another reviewer here said pressure in the 40's works better and I agree very much. Mid 40s is really the sweet spot for these as a plush road ride, that takes the sting out of train tracks and all the worst stuff.

The quality is great and setup was easy (for tubeless anyway). For value to be honest I'd do 5 stars if they were a little cheaper. These start getting into GP5000TL range which are also available in a 32 and have better feel, rolling resistance and in my experience heal just fine. Sort of feels like premium price for commuter tires but at the same time these have really treated me great. Previously ran gravelking 32s set up the same but they were abysmally fragile for me. I began referring to them as fragilekings. IMHO if you're considering the Re-Fuse, go for it. I like them enough to buy them again.

I run these tires tubeless and have yet to have a flat on them. I guess if you look at sites that test rolling resistance, etc. they do NOT score well on that front. However, for me the puncture resistance and longevity is well worth it. I can ride chunky, rocky stuff, glass-strewn urban streets, freeway shoulders, etc. all with confidence that I'm not gonna flat. Prior to using these tires, I used Continental Gran Prix 4Seasons, which are "puncture resistant", but I would still get a flat at least once every 1000 miles or so. These tires wear out completely before I get a flat, I've gotten over 5000 miles without flatting. They're also fairly affordable, especially compared to other tubeless options, and the tan sidewall option looks great too!

Like riding on marbles
rating
by jarofclay

The roads that I ride have a variety of surfaces. There is new gravel, old gravel, smooth roads, sandy areas but very little mud. The only surface that I feel safe when using these tires is totally smooth surfaces. The tires are unstable on any other off road surface. When there is any gravel present, it feels like riding on marbles. They lose grip very easily. I weigh 125 lbs and I run the tires at 22-25 lbs of pressure and they still feel unstable and they do not maintain contact, especially when out of the saddle. I have switched back to the best tire for me and that is the Maxxis Rambler. The SilkShield is heavier and slightly less compliant than the Exo/Tr version which is also lighter and probably does provide quite as much puncture protection. I prefer the Exo/ Tr version because it seems to give better feel and it is very stable.

I bought these to mount on my other Wheelset. ( On my first Wheelset I ride WTB Nanos on off road gravel adventures.) I ride these Re-fuse 32c on good pavement, rough paved roads, gravel, hard pack, and a variety of surfaces. I've taken them on two 300 plus mile loaded bike packing trips. They have been great. Several thousand miles-not much sign of wear. I've NEVER had a flat tire-Not once in over 18 months of riding. They seem to be pretty comfy on pavement at 45 to 55 psi (I'm 6 foot and 170-175). On training rides I run these tires at 55-60 psi. Off road, on 2-3 hour gravel rides I run them at close to 40 psi and find them pretty comfy.

(My poor road bike misses me-I'm always out on a mixed surface adventure.)

I'm happy with this purchase and I will buy them again.

I purchased a pair of 32c Maxxis Refuse tires that I run on 700c rims. Setup is tubeless, using Orange Seal tubeless sealant. The ride is plush, and no flats in the first 400 miles or so of commuting in Seattle. Max pressure is listed as 75psi, and I typically pump them to about 65psi. One thing I have noticed about tubeless is that they do lose pressure over time, so it's a good idea to check them daily if you are picky. This is my 3rd set of Maxxis. I previously had 28c on this same bike, but ran them with tubes, and the ride was nowhere near as plush. I have 40c version on my 29er that is set up as a winter commuter. Had no flats last winter on that setup, and will see how long they last this winter. Overall, these tires are fantastic when setup as tubeless.

I decided to go with these tires on my CX bike for an upcoming event - the Grapes of Wrath ride, which is multi-surface. Lot's of tarmac, dirt farm roads and a 30 mile dirt climb. Last weekend I tested them out on some rough roads around San Luis Obispo, including some steep loose rocky terrain. The tires were utterly fantastic, smooth and comfy on the road and they handled almost all of the dirt except for some very rocky sections. No punctures or pinch flats!

I used these to convert my commuting/trail bike to tubeless setup. I used the 700x32 version. Grip well on wet and mixed surfaces. Tubeless conversion went very easy as well. They felt somewhat more sluggish from what I had before initially, but now I don't notice. I typically pump to about 60psi. These work great so far.

Bought these for my gravel bike (Moots Routt). I rode them on smooth pavement, over railroad tracks, tons of potholes, gravel roads, dirt trails, all the time loaded down with an extra 25 pounds of gear. Ran them at 70-75 psi. They were comfortable, rolled nicely, and they never blinked as I put them through their paces. Over one thousand mile in now over a few weeks, and they still look great! I would buy these tires again.

I have roughly 400-500 miles on these tires now and I just could not be more pleased with them! I've also put them on my wife's bike and she feels the same. They are fast rolling and fast launching, yet very comfortable and stable. They provide outstanding traction on roads, paved trails, tight and loose gravel, hard-pack and grass. They are even adequate on wet surfaces. I feel confident on tight turns and have never had a slip or stutter. I've also received more compliments and inquiries about these tires than any others I've ever had. I'll definitely be using this model for a long time!

I have a few hundred miles on these( 700x40's) now and they have been holding up great. They mounted tubeless with no issues and run them at 40psi (I weigh 180). I have them on my 'do anything bike, they are nice and fast on the road and have the volume for gravel, dirt, and rough roads. The traction in the dry is fantastic! My teammate even made a comment about how much traction I have after he saw me rail a downhill turn. Traction in the rain is adequate, but not the tire's strong point. On hard packed gravel they are good, loose gravel is also not a strength of this tire but they will do the job.

Overall I love them and would recommend for a very versatile tire, for long road rides or mixed terrain rides these will do a great job, I also really like how smooth the ride is with 40mm width and the ability to drop the pressure low.

Finally, on top of the performance, they simply look rad!

I was looking for a tire that I could use in the winter and for a few rides that have some sections of gravel. After reading the reviews, I bought a set in 25mm. Overall, excellent tires. Zero issues in 500 miles of abuse in cruddy conditions. My only issue was the size...I bought 25C and on Dura Ace 9000 rims, they measure at 23.5mm....Bummed, as I was hoping they would be at least 25. I'll get another set, but in 28 next time.

I installed these on my Trek Crossrip that I use for gravel grinding and the occasional rail trail. Tubeless on the gravel the rolling resistance is low and the ride smooth. These went on the rims much easier than other tubeless ties Ive used and the beads seated perfectly. Not tires at an acceptable price.

Got these tires in 32 mm width and mounted them tubeless on a pair of Stan's wheels on a Kona Jake cross bike. Mounted easier than I had been conditioned to expect for tubeless, and pretty easy to get off, too. Mounted relatively straight with a floor pump and some soap.

So far, just rode them on a century ride that was half-pavement, about half-gravel roads, and about two miles of sand (thought I was riding to the beach!). Max inflation is 75 psi, rode them at about 60-65 psi (my weight is 190 lb). Smoothness was good on pavement, did not feel slowed down. Traction and turning was good on gravel. Would have liked to go to lower pressure but did not want to slow down on the pavement. At 32 mm width, did not go well on the sand (no surprise...), had to walk parts of it. Would buy these again.
