With regards to actual tire sizes, I've measured a lot of them and am curious about your Maxxis 2.8 measurement.
On 40mm inner width rims, after at least 24 hours of stretching, and measured at 20 psi with an inner tube, I measured 2.70" and 2.67" on two different Maxxis 27.5 x 2.8 tires. They have a tolerance on sizing, and tend to come in a little undersized, but 2.55" is pretty far off. Were your measurements immediate upon install, or at a low pressure? Not saying you're wrong, just curious of the details.

The Maxxis 27.5 x 2.6 tires I have measured on i35 rims were 2.50" and 2.52", measured at 30psi with an inner tube, after about 24 hours of stretching.


I do agree that more accurate tire labeling would be nice. To their credit, Maxxis is a lot better than they used to be. Those 2.8's are the farthest from true sizing I have seen from them on any semi recent design.

the specialized 2.6's (maxxis factory) measured bead to bead the same as conti trail king 2.4, which, in fairness are the biggest casing 2.4 you could previously find, but still. A moment of silence for numbers that mean something, please.

edit: i wrote specialized 2.4 when I meant specialized 2.6. Woops!

Keep in mind that it's virtually hollow. In the wide open setting, air is virtually free to transfer between the main chamber and that of the cartridge.

We're not sitting on the fence. It is an outstanding product, which is why we gave it 4.5 stars. Whether or not you value its features and benefits to the tune of that much money (and extra weight), is clearly for you to decide.

If you haven't watched Revel in the Chaos yet, I highly recommend it. When it comes to this type of riding, no one is as dialed as Semenuk right now. Perfect movements and seemingly effortless style. Could watch it on repeat all day.
