If you want to use your mountain bike as a commuter around the streets, you won't regret using these rollers. Fast and secure!

I ride my mountain bike to work each day, switching to these tires make a big difference riding on the pavement. They roll fast and hold up well. Once I wear these out, I'm buying another pair.

Big, Beefy, Grippy, Fast Rolling and Silent.

Love these tires (29x2.5). Once you get them mounted (not as easy as most tires) they are excellent all-around urbanpavement tires. I use them mostly to ride to work and paved Rail-Trials. I did try them on sand and dirt and it was impossible to turn properly, front tire would slide. I have 29mm ID rims bringing the overall width of this tire to 66.8 mm, 2.6 inches 65psi. This left about a 14 clearance on each side of my 2019 Kona Honzo Hardtail. So far I have a little over 200 miles on them with no problems. Love the ride. These tires stomp the small road debris.

Excellent roll resistance for such a big tire. Looks awesome on my 2018 Trek Marlin 6.

Converted my 2018 Trek Marlin 6 from a trail bike to a urban commuter. These tires work very well with the front suspension shocks. Installing a rear cargo rack with Topeak storage trunk. I researched a lot of urban bike tires and by far these Maxxis Hookworms 29x2.50 were recommended by a lot of people. As soon as I installed I went for a 20 mile ride very impressed with the handing and ride comfort. Rolling resistance was very good noticed that I was able to glide for a long distance compared to the Bontrager XR2 and my pair of Kenda Kwick Nine Sport urban tires.

Excellent Grip - smooth rolling effort - 65 PSI rated

Sellers seldom display the PSI rating for any bicycle tire, so I will. It rolls easy and has extraordinary grip. If you want a tire that is wide and offers traction with a large variety of surface types, then this is your tire! It rolls well over grass, dry or wet dirt, muddy caliche, small rocks, and yes - wet or dry smooth concrete or asphalt. It's a gripper.

Awesome Traction - at 65 PSI - effortless pedal effort required

It's printed right on the tire to inflate to 65 PSI - something sellers don't print on their websites.

These tires are great! They grip and roll very well over pavement, grass, and wet earth that's ridable.

Thick, fast rolling and amazing looking, better than my buzzers.

I have a Trek Marlin 7 (2019) and these fit just fine. They are definitely heavier than the original nubby tires that came with the bike but I have absolute confidence they'll hold up for a long long time and I'm faster with them because of the smooth rolling surface.
