Great tires for EVERY thing

I got these tires to replace stock Kenda Happy Medium. I planned on racing and wanted a lighter tire. Read lots of reviews of gravel racing tires and for my purposes the Rambler is meeting and exceeding my expectations. I have ridden (I keep track of all my rides) 515 miles so far on these tires. Road, rotten granite, super rocky climbs and descents, loamy forest trails, full on mtb trails, gravel roads, snowymuddy conditions, sand, and some roots have been the surfaces.

The stick well in all conditions and are predictable on all reasonable surfaces.

I'm using 40mm tires, tubeless, on a Lynskey GR270 with Stans Grail rims. Loaded weight of me and bike is just under 200 lbs.

I'm using the 120TPI front and 60 TPI rear.

The tires are wearing great. No cuts or holes.

Price was reasonable and I have no complaints.

YMMV.

Early Review Good Tire

I replaced a set of Donnelley 36 mm with these in a 38.The volume difference is noticeable. Today I rode a mixed-surface road to get an idea of how these tires performed. With 50 inflation, they did well on hard-packed dirt, loose gravel, and gravel with random golf-ball size rocks. The real test was the sections of the road that had been repaired with large-walnut size-rock. This was several inches deep, so the surface was very insecure. Although the tires weren't made for this kind of riding they gave reasonably good controlk and got me through. So far, I'm pleased with these tires, they feel safe and secure on rough road surfaces.

Ride great but still fit and durability issues

I had an original set of Ramblers and found them the worst tires I had ever tried to mount tubeless. For reference between switching tires across three race wheel sets and three training wheels, in both cases for gravel and ultra mtb racing, I probably mount 15 tiresyear. I have a shop air compressor and prestaflator to make quick work of it.

After reading the reviews about the improved design I thought I'd try these again. Now, to be fair I have only tried to mount Ramblers on one wheel - Hed Belgium Plus. Mounting was easier, but not anywhere near as good as Schwalbe G One all around or speed, Kenda Flintridge, Panaracer Gravelking SK, or Compass Barlow Pass.

After mounting I always fully deflate to ensure the bead is set. Immediately these popped off. Back and forth until I finally got them to stay seated without air. Some are OK with a tire unseating like this but I'm not.

After that they held air. First ride reminded me how nice these are. Second ride epic flat on a course I ride every weekend and haven't flatted on in over 4 years. Just my time? And of course the bead popped off just to add to the fun. I think the Gravelkings will go back on. They don't ride near as nice but I haven't ever flatted on those or the Flintridges, riding in all conditions including lots of puncture inducing PNW rain.

Great tire for mixed terrain

These are a great tire for gravel and trails. Road these at the Heck of The North, which is a gravel race in Two Harbors, Mn. They were perfect. Supple, lightweight, decent rolling resistance, and most importantly, good traction in the mud.

Awesome experience with these

I love these tires! I've just worn through my first set on my gravel bike (38c) after 2 years and a few thousand miles (mostly road, lots of hard-pack gravel, some singletrack). Set up tubeless, I have had really incredible puncture protection, traction, cushhhh, and comfort - I've really enjoyed the overall feel of these and would highly recommend.

I've experienced several puncture-events during my time with these, but these events have literally never resulted in a non-rideable outcome. The worst instance resulted when I ran over a nail that pierced the tire, and I experienced continual leaking for several days after removing the nail (I could still commute but needed to inflate it every 24 hours). However, topping off my sealant levels (Orange Seal) fixed the problem without having to remove the tire.

Setting up tubeless was a mild pain in the ass, but partially because I don't have an air compressor, the puncture protection and lower PSI is completely worth the hassle though.

Long lasting, take a lot of abuse!!

I have had the 700x45 tires for over a year now and put a lot of sharp gravel miles on my bike. These tires have yet to let me down or leave me stranded! They do wear out though, I am on my second rear tire, but I think I got at least a couple thousand miles out of them.

Worth the cost for sure!!!

Liked it from short time use

Good tire, rolls remarkably fast on pavement, decent traction on dirt but definitely more of a gravel tire than a cross tire with solid side knobs. Bought a 38, and on a 33mm internal it stretched out to 40 over the course of a couple rides in a week. That extra size meant it didn't clear my chain stays any longer, so I didn't get a thorough review.

Fast & resonably supple tire

First off, I love this tire. I bought it in the Silk Shield 45c to run tubeless on my new gravel bike. The tire is super fast on pavement and darned fast on gravel too. I did have a problem with them though, I was loosing tire pressue at the tune of 30 psi overnight. The front tire finally settled down a bit but the back one continued to loose that kind of pressure every day. While cleaning the bike up after a gravel ride, I used Simple Green on the tireswheels and was shocked to find that the back tire had dozens of micro-holes in the sidewalls. Why the sealant didn't address this I don't know but it didn't. Afterall, I did remove and reseat them and made sure the valve cores where tightened down properly. Still loosing air pressure I called up BTD and they exchanged the tire for me. I came home and seated it and the first thing I did, even before adding the sealant was clean the sidewall with Simple Green. I did NOT see the same problem with this new tire so added the sealant, 2.5 oz this time and I'm hoping they work out well for me as I do really like the tire. I know you loose some air in tubeless but there shouldn't be anything like 30 psi in less than 24 hours. Looking good so far. Check the sidewalls if you are loosing a lot of air.

Have had great luck with this tire until the last set

I have been through 3-4 set of Ramblers in the 120 TPI black wall. The last set I wanted the skin walls. They look awesome. The skin wall is only available in 60 TPI, versus 120 TPI for all of the other sets I have ran in the past. I have had three cuts big enough that I had to patch the inside of the tire because sealant wouldn't seal it up. Maybe it's a coincidence, but the last set doesn't seem very durable. My other tires have been wonderful, very puncture resistant on Kansas gravel roads. I'm not sure if it's the thread count or something about a difference in the skin wall , but the cuts were on the tread which I assume has the same rubber compound. That said, I will probably buy this tire again, light weight and generally very durable. I love Maxxis tires.

Same tire that was standard on my giant gravel bike

I dont like this tire because it seem to roll good on the pavement and holes really well going up steep hills without slipping. Even know this is called the same exact tire is what I had stock on my 2018 TCX house sex giant the poundage rating is different, this tire maximum pressure is 60 where I think my old one was 80. Sense are usually run between 30 and 40 I dont think its really an issue just interesting that they may have change the construction in the last year or so.

Good traction, decent rolling, no flats

Put a couple of these Maxxis Ramblers on my cross bike for gravel riding - mostly gravel roads, some jeep roads, a bit of single-track - with tubeless setup. Went on easily (onto Stan's rims, forget the model) and seated easily and wobble-free with an ordinary floor pump. Riding at 40 to 60 psi, depending on surface. Traction was good on all surfaces, both for going forward and on turns, better than the Conti Top Contact winter tires I was running with tubes before. Rolling resistance was adequate, not a problem. No flats so far. Holding air adequately well. Would buy again.

Good all around gravel tire

Threw a set of these on an old CX bike for a couple of gravel events last summer. Kept the air pressure on e low end and enjoyed a reasonably plush and stable ride. Easy to mount and held air nicely. Raced an early season (dry) CX race with this set up. Performed nicely there too.

This tire is a good, light tire.

For an ultralight 40 mm tire this tire performs well. Particularly with regard to braking. If one were to require more cornering acumen, the Ravager is the one from this manufacturer. Also, the silk shield is the only way to keep cooked cauliflower from punching holes through that light casing.

Versatile, reliable, would buy again

Mounted these tubeless on Stans Grail rims. Mounted securely without much effort, seated with high-pressure blast pump. At higher pressure (60-65 psi), nice ride on pavement, good grip on turns, seems to roll well. At lower pressure on gravel (35-40 psi), traction good and generally secure on turns, improves comfort on my Kona Jake bike I use for gravel. No flats or damage evident from 500 miles of gravel road single-track riding. Would buy again.

Durable light weight tire

I was originally using the Kenda Flint Ridge tires. I definitely appreciate those tires for rougher gravel rides however you doing Incur somewhat of a weight penalty compared to the Rambler tires. I have riden the Rambler tires over quite rough surfaces and after a few hundred miles have had no issues. I am running them tubless with an average pressure of between 25 and 35 PSI. For most uses I would definitely recommend the Rambler

Poor sizing resulted in bad installation

For a tubeless tire, the Rambler did meet expectations. The tire went on the rim entirely too easy and even with using a number of tricks could not get the tire to hold air and seat in a tubeless setup. The rim that was being used has seated a number of tubeless tires in the past and since. Maybe Ill try to use it if I ever decide to run tubes

Highly recommended tire if you have some patience.

I used these tires at the Lost and Found race with great success. It is billed as a gravel grinder but had sections of rutted out jeep roads and dirt ranch roads. There were also many rocky washed out areas from the hard winter in Northern California Sierra. The Ramblers handled everything with no flats and no burping . Setting up tubeless was also difficult on my DT Swiss rims so I put in a tube for 24 hours and then carefully took off one bead to remove the tube. Had to use a compressor but they finally inflated and held air without sealant overnight.

I highly recommend this tire if you have some patience and a air compressor.

Great tires, hard to mount

One of my local gravel routes was recently refreshed with lots of new gravel, which meant a change from my normal file treads to a mini-knob. I decided on a Rambler (700x40).

I've mounted tubeless tires before. I have a 60 gallon air compression and a Prestaflator. I always soap the beads and pull the valve cores when mounting. I generally have no problem mounting tubeless tires with this set up. I'm usually done in a few minutes.

I spent significant time one evening trying to mount these tires on 2 different wheelsets (HED Belgium and Stan's Grails, both with Stan's valves). No luck. Finally had to give up. Second try the next day I figured out what was going on. This tire, when on the rim but not seated, turns into a circle in cross section, with the beads sitting against each other in the center groove of the rim. This partially block the value and the air wasn't getting between the beads. Eventually I had to back the nut off the valve body so that I could push the value up between the beads. Then, with 60 psi blasts from the Prestaflator and repeated whacking of the tire I got them to seat. Even with the valve pushed into the tire it was still harder to get these to seat than any other tire I've mounted.

They held air overnight without sealant. The next day I was able to deflate and pull the value core without unseating the beads to add sealant. Took them on a 75 mile ride, 50 of gravel (dirt, mud, loose over hard, just plain deep). Very steep loose climbs, 35mph loose descents - tire worked great overall.

I understand why the reviews like this tire. In practice it works really well.
