Tires are for my gravel bike 650b wheelset. Used for dry conditions. Easy to mount using a standard floor pump (Boyd Cycling 650b Jocassee tubeless hookless clincher rims). Holds air (30-35 psi) for weeks without any issue (Stan's Sealant). Relatively fast with moderate rolling resistance when compared to my 700x30 wheelset -- able to kept up with the road guys on flat payment. Corners very well on loose, dry dirt and shallow sand. Rolls easily over small pea-size to medium (1-3 inch diameter) gravel. Lots of fun running a single track with these tires. Definitely will buy again!
Especially in dry packed conditions and routes mixed with tarmac, these tires shine. Great tread life and a soft, grippy, yet fast-rolling compound. Especially love the Maxxis EXO sidewalls!
These tires are faster and lighter than knobbies and you can feel the difference. Perfect for taking your MTB on long gravel rides. But they are not as robust as full knobbies, I rode them on a rugged technical trail and one failed catastrophically with a 2" rip in the sidewall. It's not the tire's fault, they weren't designed for that kind of abuse. That said, I've put hundreds of gravel miles on these and they've proven great traction and no flats, more robust than Schwalbe G-One Allrounds which gave me no end of problems.
Overall recommended, if you stick to gravel and don't take them on terrain that is too rough.
Commuter and gravel rider. EXCELLENT rolling tire on pavement, considering its 47mm. Great gravel traction. A bit hard to get on the rim. I didnt go tubeless. Zero punctures. Looks great too.
Got these to put on my gravel bike. They roll nice on pavement and even better on gravel. Have even taken them on a dirt path and they're nice.
Bought it since 33mm is bit slim to the road I ride but I have a small tire clearance.
I can feel the difference.
Thanks for carrying this product, it is rare to find a 650b gravel tire.
Love this tire. Works well for (slower) rolling on gravel roads and relatively smooth single track. Also excited to try it out bikepacking (though I haven't yet).
