The Maxxis Ravager is a 700c gravel tire for the riders out there willing to brave aggressive terrain with only their drop bars and a tiny amount of rubber beneath them. While other tires are designed to continue riding once the asphalt ends, the Ravager opens up new line choices, camping spots, and epic adventures where no road ever existed thanks to its aggressive tread pattern. Raised square-edged center knobs provide climbing and braking traction on moon dust covered trails, while the oversized cornering knobs keep the rubber side down.
The Ravager is available in two different versions. The standard version features a lightweight 120 TPI casing featuring EXO Protection and Tubeless Ready technologies, delivering a supple, responsive, durable tire. For serious off-road adventuring or multi-day touring, consider the 60 TPI, more durable version that includes both EXO Protection and Tubeless Ready technology, as well as adding in the Silk Shield bead-to-bead protection layer, making these tires nearly bomb-proof.

Great tire for loose conditions
A 'cross bike I recently purchased came with the 120TPI version of the Ravagers and they're perfect for the conditions I typically ride it, a mix of hardpack and loose sandgravelleavespine needles over hardpack. The 40mm size helps prevent bottom outs on the bonier roads and trails. They definitely feel soft and somewhat slow on pavement (I run them at 28/30 front rear for dirt/gravel/trails). If I was riding strictly hardpack and pavement, I'd probably switch to the Ramblers, but I'm very happy with the way these perform, as they provide a lot of grip and confidence in corners and the loose stuff. I'd rate them on par with or superior to the Conti CycloX King 42s in the loose stuff, with the Conti's being betterfaster on harder surfaces.
