Maxxis Detonator Road Tyre

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.

  • Silkworm Technology - is an exclusive material incorporated into the casing of select models, increasing puncture and tear resistance. Silkworm is featured as a bead-to-bead cap-ply (denoted as Silkworm B2B) or under the tread as a breaker (denoted as Silkworm).

Specifications:

  • Size: 700 x 23
  • TPI: 27
  • Weight: 325g

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. 14 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. 27 October 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 03 August 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! 29 July 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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 29 May 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good tyre Good and durable 11 May 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. 14 March 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 08 March 2011

Difference between wire and folding version?

Hi, other than the fact that one folds and the other doesn't... what are the noticeable differences between the wire and folding version of the Maxxis Detonator tyre? Wire looks heavier by 100g - any performance / tread / visual difference?

Answer: 
The Wire version is heavier; and as the bead is reinforced it is easier to seat to the rim.

The folding version has a tighter bead and can be more difficult to mount onto the rim but more secure, it is also lighter.

Answer: 
there are no other differences as far as I am aware, but a folding bead tyre is much easier to store when not in use as it can be folded etc. and folding bead tyres are generally a lot easier to remove from wheels compared to wire beaded ones, which may be something to keep in mind.
