Re-Fuse Road Tyre Test Results

If you’re looking for road cycling tyres and you’re not sure which tyres to choose, you can always look to tyre tests for the answer.

Cycling Weekly

Cycling Weekly reviewed the Re-Fuse tyre, awarding it a solid 8/10.

Paul Norman, Cycling Weekly, May 2017:

“If you’ve got a bike with the clearance for 40mm tyres, the Re-Fuse is a good option for mixed-terrain riding. With a high air volume, the tyre riders over bumpy and uneven ground well, providing a degree of compliance to the terrain and some additional cushioning to the rider.

It has a semi-slick pattern, with a small diamond tread which extends around halfway down the tyre’s sidewall. Coupled with the large contact patch this gives enough grip to tackle drier bridleways, although it slips in wetter mud. So it’s a good tyre for the summer months, but you will probably need something with a bit more grip to get you through the UK winter if you’re riding all but the best-laid off-road trails. The tyre rides well on tarmac and hard-packed surfaces though, with little more rolling resistance than a standard road tyre.

I was able to set the tyres up quickly on a tubeless-ready rim, with the sealant giving an extra degree of reassurance against flatting. With such a wide tyre, a wider rim is an advantage though, to ensure good sidewall support. I didn’t have any problems with punctures and the tyre’s sidewalls are relatively robust, so they should be reasonably resistant to sidewall damage.

The Maxxis Re-Fuse is a good option for mixed terrain riding on gravel and adventure road bikes, if the off-road isn’t too muddy. It gives a subtle ride and is tubeless ready too.”  


Bicycle Rolling Resistance is a review site that evaluates and reviews cycle tyres.

Jarno Bierman,, December 2019:

“If you don’t care about rolling resistance, the Maxxis Re-Fuse can be a good training tyre as it offers good puncture resistance and a lot of tread thickness that should make it last a long time.” 

Re-Fuse Tyre Reviews

Sometimes the best reviews come from riders just like you. Take a look at our user reviews below.

Rider,, April 2016:

“Nice ride, good traction, good price. Excellent tyre for the money. Great for everyday use and training.” 


Rider,, January 2016:

“I was recommended these tyres for commuting and general cycling by my local shop a few years ago. I’ve had 3 sets now (2 in use and one waiting for their call up) and have to say they do exactly what you’d want for this type of riding. Under $50 a pair and you can get 7,000+ trouble-free kms out of them. I’ve just had my first flat from my current set, after around 8,000km. It was the front tyre, which has got quite a few nicks from the glass and gravel that I have to negotiate, but they have performed exceptionally up to now. I looked at the back and noticed that I’ve ridden it down to the inner lining, without a single problem. Okay, so I probably need to change it. Best commuting tyre I’ve ridden in 35+ years.” 


Rider,, September 2014:

“I won a set of Maxxis Re-Fuse 700x23 tyres. I had heard good reviews about these tyres as they suit the rough country chip roads here in NZ. I am usually training 5-6 days a week. I have now had these on my training bike over a year now and only 1 small superficial cut and they are just starting to flatten out from wear. What I really like about them is that they are more comfortable than most tyres. I ride my tyres around 90-100psi as I am about 76-78kg. Of course they would feel hard and uncomfortable if you had them up to 120psi as some reviewer stated. I have found them to be an exceptional training tyre, and you can also get 25’s and 28mm sizes. Interesting to note is that the road rider from YouTube (Durian rider) chose the 28mm version of these tyres to tour across the length of Australia on his racing bike, said they were very comfortable. I have got a set of these 28mm on order and can’t wait to try them out. Probably should have got 25s but comfort is everything. Also, they grip really well in the wet.” 


Rider,, April 2014:

“In my quest for a bulletproof puncture resistant road tyre, I have finally seen the top of the mountain. I went through a couple of sets of Bontrager Hardcase tyres which would have visible cuts all over them after less than 1,000 miles, not to mention one with a bubble. I read good user reviews about the Maxxis Re-Fuse and decided to take the plunge. 2,000 miles so far, no flats, no visible cuts anywhere! And no, I did not change my riding style, nor the roads I ride on! The rolling resistance also seems lower than the Bontrager Hardcases but the road feel is harsher. I guess that’s part of the tradeoff for a bulletproof reliable tyre? Recommended!” 


Commuter,, April 2013:

“I’ve been a daily cycle commuter in central London for 12 years. Up until these tyres I’d always used nylon and more recently Kevlar tyre liners and both end up causing punctures more than protecting against them… In frustration I decided to risk tyres with no additional protection and have been running the Maxxis Re-Fuse for a little over a year. They’re a little ragged now and have loads of tiny shards of glass embedded in them and a couple of fairly large chunks taken out of them, but I haven’t had a single puncture since fitting them. Astounding!”
