With its dual-compound tread pattern, the Maxxis Detonator provides a durable training tire with a race pedigree. A add highlight to this tyre is Silkworm, the Silkworm Technology is an exclusive material incorporated into the casing of select models, increasing puncture and tear resistance. Softer silica compound on the outer edges of the tire allows for great traction in a variety of road conditions. The Detonator is durable enough to provide plenty of winter miles, yet supple and grippy enough to race on in the summer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Maxxis Detonator Tyre
I bought 3 sets of these tyres from Chain reaction for training due to their cheap price. Each tyre has lasted less than 100km of bitumen riding with the tyres all being sliced open on the side wall due to puncture debris from the roads where I live (Cairns Australia). I could not recommend these tyres due to continuous punctures and the tyres failing after only one or two training rides. Buyer beware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Ok Tyres
Had these tyres on my hybrid for 7 months, so riddden in the back end of last winter and all through the summer. Done about 2000 miles (all road mileage) with no punctures. Having to change now as I have a sidewall bulge in the rear tyre due to I think hitting a pothole in the dark.
Performance wise I think these are OK good rolling resistance and good cornering having said that I have not really pushed them in the wet.
So for a cheap tyre these are OK bit dissapointed with the mileage though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tyre - fast too
I had these on my Giant FCR 1. 4000km and no punctures, climbing in around Wicklow and Dublin.
For amateur cyclists, these are excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent puncture resistant tyre
I think these tyres are fab - I have a set on both of my bikes and am just about to replace my oldest set after ca. 15 months and about 2000 miles - still no punctures with them but the inside of the tyre is starting to wear a little so I got a slow flat. However after being puncture free for so long, I have no complaints!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous grippy but punture prone
I have ridden on these tyres for 4 months roll well are nice and light seem to have plenty of grip but are VERY prone to punctures, have to keep an eye on road for any glass or debris to avoid it, used mainly for bunch rides and the odd race, now after different tyres due to rear tyre delaminating.Will not use again

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Cheap but you get what you pay for
These were my first set of tires and I've done just over 1200kms on them. Had numerous punctures and now they are lookng really shabby after only 4 months. Had to patch a slit hole recently and swap over the front to the back. They are fairly hard to get on and off btw.
I've been pretty careful what I'm riding over but these don't give you a lot of confidence what you hit a gravel patch.
You're better off spending the bit more money on the Refuse than getting these cheap and paying for all the tubes you'll go through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Top winter tyre
Had a pair of these on my winter bike and in several thousand miles I've only had two punctures! Grippy, roll well and for the money, hard to beat.
