Maxxis vs. Schwalbe Tire Comparison
Picking out the right set of tires is imperative if you want to ensure that you have the proper grip you need to accommodate your riding style. With two huge players in the industry, Maxxis and Schwalbe, and so many options offered by both companies, it can be hard making the right decision. Here is some important information about both companies that should help you make a better informed decision for your tire purchase!
Maxxis is the leading Tire company in the mountain biking industry. Since 1967, they have provided the highest quality and strongest durability at relatively affordable prices. From innovating new technologies such as the 3C, Tubeless Ready, EXO etc. to producing better rubber material that reduces the overall weight of the tire, they are committed to providing the best quality and industry leading treads for your beloved mountain bike. Maxxis offers a wide variety of tires with anything from light cross country tires, to the downhill tires made for the roughest terrain, and everything in between. You can essentially customize the tire perfect to your riding style, with options in tire size, tire width and tube style. For example our best selling Maxxis Minion DHF and DHR II are a perfect tire for any kind of terrain whether it's enduro or DH and yet they are still some of the lightest tires on the market. Ask anyone who has ever owned a set of Maxxis tires and i'm sure everyone has the same outlook- they are awesome!
Schwalbe has been providing quality tires for bicycles since it's establishment in 1922. With years of experience in the mountain biking industry, it is safe to say that they produce some of the best tires you can buy on the market. They are very comparable to the quality of Maxxis so you know that you are going to be getting some good grip and long lasting performance with a purchase of a Schwalbe tire. Like Maxxis, they provide a wide range of products that can accommodate any type of mountain biking. Some of their top selling brands, such as the Nobby Nic or Magic Mary, are strong, durable tires that can be purchased in a variety of different lengths and widths to match your riding needs.
