In The Know Cycling
InTheKnowCycling.com is an e-commerce bike site that also reviews some of the products it sells. They were very pleased with the Padrone TR, including it in their list of “the best tubeless bike tyres”, a list which is just 7 tyres long.
Bicycle Rolling Resistance
BicycleRollingResistance.com is a news and reviews site dedicated to thoroughly and quantitatively testing bicycle tyre performance. They were very pleased with the Maxxis Padrone, as you will see below:
Jarno Bierman, BicycleRollingResistance, October 2018:
“The Padrone TR is the first Maxxis road bike tyre that we’ve tested and our first impression is that it’s a solid tubeless-ready tyre. Although rolling resistance is a bit higher than the fastest tubeless-ready tyres from other brands, it makes up for this with decent scores in the puncture tests. Rated 4 out of 5 as rolling resistance is the main subject of this website and it looks like Maxxis can improve a bit here.”
