Taking its name from the Milan Malpensa airport code, the MXP from Donnelly is designed for intermediate conditions, making it perfect option for varied courses where both wet and dry conditions are on the menu.
The MXP uses split center chevrons which allow it roll quickly in dry conditions and bite down in light mud. Cleat-inspired side lugs provide additional grip in the corners, and the open spaces between the center tread and shoulder areas allow the tire to shed mud and debris.
The MXP Clincher uses a supple 120 TPI casing. 68 max. recommended PSI. 700c x 33mm (UCI legal; 33-622 ISO). Tubeless ready. 378g.

Great performing tire at a reasonable price
I use this tire on my Cross bike for gravel, dirt and non-technical single track rides. I've tried 2 other tires because the one bugaboo with the MXP is that it is very difficult to mount. Having said that, I keep coming back to it because the ride quality is vastly superior to the other tires I have used. Despite sporting substantial knobs, it rolls surprisingly well on the sections of asphalt I ride to connect dirt sections. Since switching to the tubeless version, I now cannot get pinch flats, which had been a problem with the MXP clinchers. This also has allowed me to ride lower pressure, which further enhances ride quality and traction.
