    Chronicle Tyre Test Results

    Look to the opinions of professional fat bike tyre reviewers if you're unsure.

    Worldwide Cyclery
    “From a traction perspective, new tires never seem to disappoint, and these were no exception. On the slippery, sandy, gravely, rocky, decomposed-granite trails in my area, plus-sized tires are SO much more fun than their narrower counterparts, and the Chronicles behaved predictably and admirably, with a surefooted hold on climbs and corners. The knob pattern does seem to overhang the sidewall just slightly, protecting against sidewall slices from the dagger-like rocks in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, and after a couple of less inspired line choices through a rocky descent, the Chronicle sidewalls show almost no sign of scuffing (not the case with the Bontrager Chupacabra).

    Bottom line (TL;DR): 125 miles in, good value, very good desert terrain traction (can’t speak to dirt/mud – that doesn’t exist around here), predictable, smooth rolling and relatively fast for a plus-sized tire. Would buy again.” – Derek Anderson, WorldwideCyclery.com, July 2018

    Chronicle Tyre: User Reviews

    Sometimes the best reviews come from off-road cyclists just like you.

    Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, January 2019:
    “Needed a good Tyre to setup on second set of wheels on my eMTB ( to save my DHR’s for single trail ) wanted something that was good and fast rolling on pathways and road but also up to doing gravel and a little bit of single trail if I came across during my ride, so far I can’t fault these tyres fast rolling and quiet on road and still very grippy on gravel/dirt, have put a few hundred ks on them now and have been way better than I expected, unfortunately I can’t comment on how they go in the wet as it hasn’t rained here for ages but really see no problem with them at all..”

    Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, November 2018:
    “Replaced factory WTB Trailblazer tires.

    More rounded rolling profile.

    Grips well on icy/snow so far.

    More rolling resistance than WTB but better overall feel of control.”

    Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, January 2017:
    “MAXXIS tyres need no introduction, this is a great tyre. Half the cost of other places out there!”

    Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, May 2017:
    “These tires are great uphill with superior traction and handle well downhill.”

    Technology

    Technology

    EXO

    An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.

    Tubeless Ready

    Tubeless downhill set-ups are a great way to shave some weight and spend more time in the bike park or shuttling hot laps on your local runs. Sealant-compatible rubber is used with the familiar Maxxis dual-ply 60 TPI downhill construction and butyl insert for support and rim protection in order to offer the benefits of increased grip and reliability. A Tubeless Ready bead securely locks to the rim and the foldable bead provides additional weight savings.
