Great gravel tire

I'm very pleased that I switched to the Maxxis Velocita tires on my gravel bike. I ride on a hard compact surface with some gravel and find the tires perfect for this setting. The rolling resistance is outstanding, much better than prior knobby tires, yet the tire provides adequate traction in turns. So far, wear appears as expected.

Maxxis for life!

I run Maxxis exclusively on my mtb & gravels. I just built up a new Wolverine and thought I'd try a Rambler in front, Velocita at the rear. The Velocita's are fast! I get the grip I need with the front Rambler and great rolling quickness with the Velocita at the rear. After my rides I often pull out thick thorns from both tires since I'm in SoCal dry heat. They seal quickly with Stans just like the other reviewer states. I have never had a tire blowout and I run through some rowdy trails that give my full suspension mtb a run for it's money. Dear Maxxis Take my money

Great tire for my gravel bike

Swapped out the standard small

knob tires for the Velocita AR. Great tire for rough roughs ie chip n seal. Smooth rolling bigger volume tire. I really like them!

Large blisters formed on both tires within a week

Large blisters formed between the rubber and the casing on both tires within a week. One blister was too large to fit through the front fork. Returned to lbs for replacement. Fast light tires with surprising amount of grip. I will likely sell or give away the replacement. I cant trust them enough to be far away from home when a failure occurs.

Surprisinging positive experience

when I bought my Giant Revolt Advanced 0 I thought the tires would be the first thing I would swap out. But after about 400 miles I am quite surprised by their performance over a variety of terrain. I ride gravel predominantly in the desert, and so I ride through a great deal of sand and rocks. Both hard packed and loose as well as rocky gravel. These tires roll very fast over all surfaces and are exceptionally fast on tarmac. I've had a number of mesquite thorns punctures that have been sealed by the Stans, thanks Stans. But they have stood up to rocks quite well and have handled well. I'll report back should I have a change of opinion over time.
