    Velocita AR Tire

    The Maxxis Velocita Tubeless tire is a high-volume low-profile tire, perfect for your gravel or all-road bike.The Velocita’s knurled center and file tread outer provide traction in corners without slowing you down on the pavement sections between sweet open dirt roads. If the road includes some pointed hazards, fear not-- the lightweight EXO casing adds protection to the sidewalls to keep you rolling and avoid the dreaded bail-out call for a ride home. At 700c x 40mm, the high volume size allows us to run a lower tire pressure and absorbs bumps in the road to keep us more comfortable on long rides.

    • A high-volume tire for gravel and adventure riding
    • Combination tread for fast rolling on pavement and grip on dirt
    • EXO casing and MaxxShield protect against sidewall cuts and flats

    Blowout on second ride

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 40 mm

    Hit something in the road, had accumulated around 50 miles on tire.
    Rear blew, was able to put in a Stan's Dart, inflate to around 40 psi and make it home.
    In the garage I pumped it up to the max 60 psi rating. This exposed a weak sidewall tear near the puncture, lost air. For an EXO rated tire, I would have expected stronger sidewalls. Tried to salvage the tire with a patch, lasted 10 miles today. In the trash it goes.
