The most anticipated entry of the Maxxis Padrone is exciting for the tubeless road tire market. More choices is a good thing. One important characteristic of the Padrone is that it uses an impermeable butyl inner liner and bead cushion for an air-tight seal that retains pressure longer than its competitors.
Maxxis uses its carefully match dual tread compound for low rolling resistance and long tread ware in the center and a stickier compound on the side tread for enhanced grip in the corners. This tubeless road tire also employs Maxxis's proprietary Silkworm material for puncture protection, along with a high-strength carbon fiber bead.
