Maxxis rolls out new road and gravel tires

Maxxis tires are synonymous with high-performance mountain bikes, but the international company also produces a huge range of road, cyclocross and gravel tires. Maxxis also shares its tire technology between disciplines with tubeless ready beads, flat protection, and various rubber compounds. Check out what’s new for the 700c road world below.
