Donnelly's MXP tubular tire was designed for all-conditions use: when you need one wheel, one tread pattern that can work in any condition you might encounter.
Named after the Milan, Italy airport code, MXP delivers that all-conditions tread by updating the classic Grifo tread pattern with subtle changes, including central chevrons with cuts to allow the tread to flex, and side knobs for more aggressive cornering that take their design cues from soccer cleats.
You can use the MXP on loose dirt, grass, sand, hardpack, and pavement effectively, and it even holds up to moderate mud and snow. If you can only have one tire, this is it.
The durability of these tires is outstanding. With no ‘inner tube’ they take sealant very well and stand up to all the thorns and ‘goat heads’ we have out in the western part of the US. I also like how the mxp has slightly taller knobs than many other all around tread patterns. Unless you are a bike handling wizard, the little extra traction in the corners is key. I’ve had tires glued onto wheels for two full cross seasons before needing to change.
