MAXXIS MTB Tire Rolling Test, New Bikes & More – Vital Gear Show

Hey Vital MTBers, have you ever wondered about the actual rolling resistance differences between Maxxis mountain bike tire tread patterns, casings or rubber compounds? We did too, so we coasted down a huge hill in hopes of figuring it out. Enjoy today’s Vital Gear Show with a look at some new bikes from Cotic and Orbea, a look into e13’s TRS+ 12-speed cassette and our pseudo-scientific Maxxis tire rolling resistance experiment.
