Best fast-commuting tire yet
rating
by wheelwing
Daily Commuter
Portland OR

I've been looking for some time for the most reliable all-weather, year-round commuting tire and I've liked these well enough to buy a replacement pair. Haven't put the replacements on the bike yet, actually, as the old Maxxis Re-fuse tires on there just refuse to die. I've had one flat in the 5,000 some-odd miles I've got on them, and that was a beastly mega-staple I don't think anything could have stopped. I had not had such good luck nor long life with other similar tires I've tried: Contintental Gatorskins, Specialized Armadillo Elites, Panaracer Gravel Kings...

The Re-fuses are reasonably lightweight for what you get, give a supple ride and stick really well to the pavement, wet or dry. I ride the 28s and for me that's the perfect balance between comfort and speed. My commute in rainy (and gritty) Portland, OR takes me over some ridiculously bumpy railroad tracks in an industrial zone, where everything not strapped down in the back of the work trucks ends up in the bike lane--and yet, as I noted above: only one flat in 5,000-plus miles, almost a year and a half now.

Daily commuter in the rainy & gritty Pacific Northwest, and every time it's time for new tires, I go looking for a set that's going to be better than the last. These are the best I've found in 18 years of searching.

Great grip, even cornering fast on freshly rain-soaked streets, I'm more nervous than they are. They feel speedy, if that means anything, and the 28s certainly cushion some blows.

I ride through some industrial zones with bumpy RR-track crossings where the shoulders are usually littered with truck-bed debris screws, staples, scrap metal, etc. Flatted out plenty of times over the years, but so far with 1,000 miles or so on these, no flats at all. knocking on wood here.

Maybe not the lightest, but pretty darn light for the protection they offer. I much prefer these to the gatorskins, armadillo elites, & endurance tires I've used before.

Great winter tire
rating

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

Love these tires! Discovered them while riding in Idaho on some pretty rough chip and seal. They have a far better ride than the continental gators and are less prone to flat!

I thought I would try a new training tire just to see what it is like. Bad move.

The things wrong with this tire (1) puncture magnets, (2) high rolling resistance, (3) soft rubber gouges easily (4) one mounts easily, the next one can't be mounted.

Running a Gatorskin on the back, Maxxis on the front I've had five punctures in 3 months in the Maxxis, none in the Gatorskin. The Maxxis apparently swallow nails, even at 120 psi. High rolling resistance, even after the tread pattern wears off, about 400 miles of extra effort to wear it smooth. Could be the extra soft rubber. Everything, pebbles, sand, glass, nails, apparently even crosswalk paint gouges a piece of rubber out. I don't know if it is poor quality control or what, but the first one mounted with normal difficulty, the second one requires two men and a crow bar. That is no fun when fixing a flat on the road or anywhere else for that matter. The upside to this tire the lettering on the side is very precise, no smudges. If you even think of getting this tire, stop immediately and send me all your money. Better I should blow it on women, whiskey, and drugs than you should waste it on this tire.

It may be a bit heavier and harder than others but it performs great. I have used many other tires. I got tired of flatting on lighter faster tires and went to krylions those were great puncture resistance and fast tires, I was bummed when they were phased out. I decided to try these and they perform. Over 1000 miles and no punctures, including a 186 mile ride through wet, dry, construction, some glass, etc... Even though they are supposed to be slower I can sprint 35 mph regularly and up to 40 good day. Very happy with them

Hi,

Thanks for your review! We're glad to hear that you're happy with these Maxxis tires, but wanted to let you know that the Michelin Krylion was not so much phased out as renamed—the new version is the Pro4 Endurance Tire. Might be worth a shot if you liked the old Krylions!

Thanks,
Stacia

I've got the Maxxis Re-Fuse tires on both of my bikes. They are really great. They are light, fast, and "re-fuse" to get flats. They are so fast that they helped me set a course record in the Silver State 508 which is one tough race.

The sleeper of the training tire category. The Re-Fuse gives Gatorskin-like puncture resistance, plus plenty of grip in wet conditions. No, it's not the fastest tire in the world, but delivers a smooth and secure ride.

A perfect tire for winter and spring training, or all-year adventure rides.

Fantastic tire for rough roads and winter riding

I was looking for a 700x25 alternate to Gravel Kings with a file tread pattern to fit under my fenders for winter riding. I ride a lot of rough roads as well as crushed limestone/very light gravel paths and these are perfect. They went on with average ease. Really nice and grippy. No complaints

There are many tires. Some more expensive than others.

If you pay more, you should get more. At least that is what I expect.

But with some tires I have paid more and didn't get better or equal performance to this tire.

For my money, I like maxxis refuse on my back tire and I expect to get at least 2 seasons out of the tire.

Every season, I place a fresh tire on the back wheel and move the old back tire into the front.

I do between 1500 and 1800 miles per season from April until October.

And so far, so good. Very few punctures and good performance on my training bike.

I have been riding for 35 years. Im not an athlete or in any competitions.

For riding my recumbent. This is the ONLY tire that I change because the excessive wear. All others are because the flat protection was compromised.

I get 3000 mi. With no flats.

My only 700 tire. I wish they made them in different sizes.

Great tires- never get a puncture flat!

I have been running Re-Fuse tires for close to ten years. Never had a puncture flat. Had flats due to broken valve stems.

Even when worn to the cords Ive never been stranded.

Some of my friends say the tires weigh too much but I am not competing in races and neither are they. I feel like it is more important to not be troubled with a flat than it is to save a few grams.

I don't track my mileage on my tires so I can't give any specific data, but these tires last a very long time. I have never had a flat with one, and that includes occasional ruough shoulders and gravel roads. They provide a good ride at a good price.

Bought these tires for the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O Canal. Had a puncture on the third and final day while we were taking a cut through on roads. It took a sharp steel piece of pipe on the road to slit it down the sidewall which doesn't have the kevlar belt protection. During examination after the trip, I found several other large slits in the front and rear tires, of which none had caused a flat.
