Re-Fuse Tyre Test Results
If you’re looking for gravel or adventure cycling tyres and you’re not sure which tyres to choose, you can always look to tyre tests for the answer, and there are plenty of tyre tests involving the Re-Fuse:
Cycling Weekly Magazine tested the Re-Fuse with an overall score of 8/10:
“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 rides over bumpy and uneven ground well, providing a degree of compliance to the terrain and some additional cushioning to the rider.
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.”

GravelCyclist.com gave an in-depth test and review of the Re-Fuse and were very impressed:
“I never recommend mounting tires tubeless on old non-tubeless rims, but that’s exactly what I did. With a compressor, I had no problem getting the Re-Fuse tires to seal up on my old Bianchi’s Mavic A719 rims. This bike has been a lot of things over the years, and it’s the bike I prefer for adventurous, unpredictable riding. As that’s precisely what these high-volume Re-Fuse tires seem to have been designed for, it only seems appropriate to put them under this bike.
While these 40mm models are new to me, I feel like I know what to expect in terms of punctures; I probably won’t get any. And unlike the others I’ve ridden, these have added puncture protection afforded by the tubeless setup.
…on the road and about two miles short of the house when I see the tell-tale sparkle of broken glass. Habitually, I get ready to swerve around it and check over my shoulder for traffic coming from behind. Then, I remember that I’m on Maxxis Re-Fuse tires. I square-up and plow right through it. I don’t bother dusting the tires with my fingertips like I usually would, either. I’m confident the MaxxShield casings won’t let the glass through, and I figure I owe it to you readers to find out. Crunch, crunch! All clear.
Are the Maxxis Re-Fuses raceday tires? Nope. Are they going to rip up that weekly A-Ride? Not unless you’re as strong as you pretend you are. But do you ever use your bike for transportation? Do you want to load up and go touring or bikepacking? Do you ever go for exploratory rides, trying to find out if some trail, gravel road or power line cut you saw on a map goes anywhere? If you like to ride your bike like you did when you were a kid –– and I really do –– you should consider treating yourself to a pair of the Maxxis Re-Fuse tubeless tires. They’ll last through several seasons of abuse. They’ll make it seem pointless to carry a spare tube. They’ll inspire you to blast through unknown territory without nervously scanning the ground for sharp objects. You won’t worry much about flats anymore. And that’s good, because riding a bike shouldn’t be worrisome.”

Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, February 2012:
“Been using these all through the winter, on a variety of crappy surfaces and in all weathers. They grip like a very grippy thing, and I've had no punctures. Easy to fit and comfortable to ride. What more can you ask for in a tyre?? Recommended.”
Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, July 2011:
“Great grip, great durability, low rolling resistance and exceptional puncture resistance.
I had 2 punctures in 1,5 years of everyday commute in the city(100km a week).”
Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, December 2010:
“Fantastic value give the 5500klm's they've done and not a single puncture. I have even raced on them on glass laden corse and they have performed brilliantly. Just go out and buy... you won't be disappointed.”
Rider, ChainReactionCycles.com, June 2010:
“I've got a set which I inherited from my boyfriend. He'd already done about 8000km on them, I've done a further 1000 and I'm yet to get a puncture.”
