Maxxis Refuse Tyre
The Re-Fuse is Maxxis' most popular training tyre, designed for crushing gravel and hardpack dirt. This tubeless-ready tyre is equipped with bead-to-bead puncture protection and will fly along the trails with next to no rolling resistance, but don't expect any forgiveness when conditions get a little slick or loose.
Who's this for: Riders wanting to ride gravel and off-road, for a gravel-specific bike or potentially converting a road bike to do so.
Suggested terrain: Strictly for gravel and hardpack dirt only - I wouldn't go near anything technical or loose with this tyre.
Which wheel: Runs well on both front and rear.
27.5 - As this tyre is only a 2 inch, we'd recommend a narrow rim, probably no more than 22mm.
700c - This tyre is a 40c width and is designed to fit a standard road bike wheel. We'd recommend a minimum 19mm rim width (21mm would be the sweet spot)
Black / 40c / 700c - 520g
Skinwall / 40c / 700c - 531g
Black / 2.0 Inch / 27.5 Inch - 610g
Pros: A fast-rolling, lightweight gravel & hard-pack-specific tyre that will outpace all your mates in the right conditions.
Cons: Minimal grip, things will get slippy very quick in wet, muddy or loose conditions.
