We have been invited by Maxxis to test a set of the Relix tyres out so expect a full review once our test pilot has raced some laps on them and given us the lowdown, good or bad.
Our only criticism is that the Relix is only available in a 20 x 1.75 size, call us old school but we like the look and security of a 1.95 up front. That criticism was soon shut down by Maxxis as a 1.95 and 1.5 sizes will soon follow giving riders options and certified 120psi for the riders that like to pump to the max.
The Relix is a modern BMX racing tire optimised for the fastest tracks conditions in the world. A slick centre line eases acceleration and maintains momentum to let you take the hole shot and stay up front until the finish line. An inverted checkerboard pattern on the shoulders provide grip for the corners and unleashes the champion within
