We're always on the prowl for the best racing and training tires. Too often, a tire is great for long summer rides, but when the rain hits, you're suddenly left desperately trying to hold your line during the final descent of the race. To prevent this scenario, Maxxis has gone to great lengths to create the perfect all-round' race tire. Ideal for slick surfaced racing and durable enough for curve intensive training, the Radiale Clincher Tire stands atop the Maxxis lineup. Far from just another high TPI tire, the Radiale is the only worthy upgrade to your race day machine.
The Radiale gets its name from the true radial casing that is uses to create a soft, flexible ride through all road and weather conditions. Closely related to the casing used in car tires, the radial casing places the threads perpendicular to the direction that your tires rotate. Unlike traditional casings that keep the tire from easily bending and flexing, the radial casing and 3C rubber compound lets the tire move naturally. This results in less hysteresis loss and better cornering on both slick and dry roads.
The radial casing is a portion of what makes the Radiale the best choice for your next tire. Maxxis' longer-lasting 3C compounds are the Yin to the radial casing's Yang. If the supple 3C rubber compound isn't enough to put your mind at ease while cornering, the additional tread on the sidewall increases your traction, so you don't have to question your turning skills on a hairpin turn.
The Radiale's durability is accented by its 120 TPI construction. In conjunction with the Silkworm layer, this high number of threads-per-square-inch eliminates the worry of flatting when you catch a stray piece of gravel.
The Maxxis Radiale Clincher Tire is available in the color Black and in a foldable 700C x 23mm size.
