Tire Opinions-Maxiss Re-Fuse and Schwalbe G-One

Hi Everyone

Does anyone have any experience with these tires? I do mostly pavement riding probably 80% and 20% gravel/dirt roads.

No experience with either tire, but based on the tread you probably would be happier with the Maxxis ones if you're riding 80% pavement.

The Maxiss are probably going to be cheaper than the G-Ones. I saw the price of the G-Ones and

I've used the Re-Fuse as a training/commuting tire. Very, very durable tires and would be fine for pavement and hard pack dirt or gravel.

The G-One is a higher-end tire. I've used the Re-Fuse (funniest tire name out there btw) as a training tire, like @caloso. It's not the best-riding tire ever, but it is durable and traction seems decent as far as I can tell. Should be fine as long as you aren't riding on anything too loose.

My high end tire - Schwalbe Marathon Dureme.

The tandem version on closeout was super-cheap for a set.

Back in the day it was Schwalbe's top of the line lightweight durable touring and rails to trails tire.

I have the G-Ones on my RLT 9 and will be swapping them out when they are worn out for a treaded tire over the knobbies. They noticeably affect road speed and as I don't ride in very much mud would prefer something smoother.

I have refuse 700x40c Maxis refuse tires on my giant anyroad. I pump them up to 50 psi, and they are extremely comfy on my crappy western pa roads. They work just fine on flat sections of crushed limestone rail trail. They are a little sketchy going downhill on the crushed limestone. Just need to be careful and can't bomb dowhill on the loose stuff with them. I am very happy with them and look forward to them lasting a long time without flats!
