Maxxis has introduced its latest flagship clincher road tire called the High Road SL, which features the company’s new HYPR-S compound that claims to reduce rolling resistance by an impressive 12%.
According to Maxxis, the High Road SL is constructed with a 170 TPI casing for optimal flexibility and absorption, along with puncture protection courtesy of the brand’s lightweight K2 breaker layer that’s aimed at serious road racing, time trialling and the velodrome – with speed being it’s main objective, not longevity.
The High Road SL joins Maxxis’ existing range of performance road tires that includes its popular all-round High Road, the tubeless-ready Padrone and the tubular Campione.
The High Road SL is currently being ridden under the auspices of the Israel Start-Up Nation pro team, who’s already notched up a few victories during the 2020 race season.
The new High Road SL sells for $65.00, which is currently available in a traditional “tubed” clincher, while a tubeless-ready version is expected to be released later this summer.
