Great mixed surface and touring tubeless tire

I bought these to mount on my other Wheelset. ( On my first Wheelset I ride WTB Nanos on off road gravel adventures.) I ride these Re-fuse 32c on good pavement, rough paved roads, gravel, hard pack, and a variety of surfaces. I've taken them on two 300 plus mile loaded bike packing trips. They have been great. Several thousand miles-not much sign of wear. I've NEVER had a flat tire-Not once in over 18 months of riding. They seem to be pretty comfy on pavement at 45 to 55 psi (I'm 6 foot and 170-175). On training rides I run these tires at 55-60 psi. Off road, on 2-3 hour gravel rides I run them at close to 40 psi and find them pretty comfy.

(My poor road bike misses me-I'm always out on a mixed surface adventure.)

I'm happy with this purchase and I will buy them again.

Fantastic for hard pack

I decided to go with these tires on my CX bike for an upcoming event - the Grapes of Wrath ride, which is multi-surface. Lot's of tarmac, dirt farm roads and a 30 mile dirt climb. Last weekend I tested them out on some rough roads around San Luis Obispo, including some steep loose rocky terrain. The tires were utterly fantastic, smooth and comfy on the road and they handled almost all of the dirt except for some very rocky sections. No punctures or pinch flats!

Durable and plush tubeless setup.

I purchased a pair of 32c Maxxis Refuse tires that I run on 700c rims. Setup is tubeless, using Orange Seal tubeless sealant. The ride is plush, and no flats in the first 400 miles or so of commuting in Seattle. Max pressure is listed as 75psi, and I typically pump them to about 65psi. One thing I have noticed about tubeless is that they do lose pressure over time, so it's a good idea to check them daily if you are picky. This is my 3rd set of Maxxis. I previously had 28c on this same bike, but ran them with tubes, and the ride was nowhere near as plush. I have 40c version on my 29er that is set up as a winter commuter. Had no flats last winter on that setup, and will see how long they last this winter. Overall, these tires are fantastic when setup as tubeless.

Smooth ride

I installed these on my Trek Crossrip that I use for gravel grinding and the occasional rail trail. Tubeless on the gravel the rolling resistance is low and the ride smooth. These went on the rims much easier than other tubeless ties Ive used and the beads seated perfectly. Not tires at an acceptable price.

Good on gravel and pavement

Got these tires in 32 mm width and mounted them tubeless on a pair of Stan's wheels on a Kona Jake cross bike. Mounted easier than I had been conditioned to expect for tubeless, and pretty easy to get off, too. Mounted relatively straight with a floor pump and some soap.

So far, just rode them on a century ride that was half-pavement, about half-gravel roads, and about two miles of sand (thought I was riding to the beach!). Max inflation is 75 psi, rode them at about 60-65 psi (my weight is 190 lb). Smoothness was good on pavement, did not feel slowed down. Traction and turning was good on gravel. Would have liked to go to lower pressure but did not want to slow down on the pavement. At 32 mm width, did not go well on the sand (no surprise...), had to walk parts of it. Would buy these again.

Absolute favorite tires to date!

I have roughly 400-500 miles on these tires now and I just could not be more pleased with them! I've also put them on my wife's bike and she feels the same. They are fast rolling and fast launching, yet very comfortable and stable. They provide outstanding traction on roads, paved trails, tight and loose gravel, hard-pack and grass. They are even adequate on wet surfaces. I feel confident on tight turns and have never had a slip or stutter. I've also received more compliments and inquiries about these tires than any others I've ever had. I'll definitely be using this model for a long time!

Great do anything tire!

I have a few hundred miles on these( 700x40's) now and they have been holding up great. They mounted tubeless with no issues and run them at 40psi (I weigh 180). I have them on my 'do anything bike, they are nice and fast on the road and have the volume for gravel, dirt, and rough roads. The traction in the dry is fantastic! My teammate even made a comment about how much traction I have after he saw me rail a downhill turn. Traction in the rain is adequate, but not the tire's strong point. On hard packed gravel they are good, loose gravel is also not a strength of this tire but they will do the job.

Overall I love them and would recommend for a very versatile tire, for long road rides or mixed terrain rides these will do a great job, I also really like how smooth the ride is with 40mm width and the ability to drop the pressure low.

Finally, on top of the performance, they simply look rad!
