Any conditions, any day.
When you take your first look at the 'cross course you'll be racing on this weekend, you know that mixed weather conditions necessitate a tire capable of taking on a bit of everything. Rather than a skittish fast roller or mud-flinging bruiser, the best tire for the job is one that won't be intimidated by squish, but can turn around and snap to attention when you hit a dry berm. Fortunately, Maxxis' All Terrane EXO/TR Tire was made for these kinds of days.
Wrap your race hoops in the All Terrane and you'll be ready for variable conditions with a wide, open tread shedding mud quickly in soft spots, and a 120 TPI preventing you from getting bogged down. Tall, square knobs grab hold of the dirt when the course turns rutted and sloppy a few laps in, but their ramped positioning on the tire allows for quick acceleration when the dirt dries and you need to open it up heading into a flyover.
- Choose this do-it-all for mixed, variable race conditions
- 120 TPI lowers tire's rolling resistance
- EXO protection guards against race-ending punctures
- Ramped knobs accelerate quickly on smooth dirt
- Open tread and tall knobs shed mud and provide traction

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Mounted these to a set of Hed Belgium Blacks and they mounted up relatively pain free. They have clung to these rims burp-free for three CX races so far. I'm not a small folk either at 6'-3", 200lbs.
They have great grip in loose and dusty terrain as well as grass. I have yet to test in muddy conditions.
Overall these tires are like mini Ardents for your cross/ gravel bike.
