We are very pleased to bring you the kind of consumer news which leaves you with more money in your pocket for beer (in our case) or other such things.
We all know that to replace our rubber, we normally need a kings ransom in our pocket. But this week, the pain of purchasing new tyres was lessened a little by an announcement from Maxxis.
Owing to a reduction in production costs, which have surprisingly been passed on to the consumer, Maxxis have announced a price reduction which will come into force for all orders placed on or after the 15th January 2018.
It would appear that the reductions come at the wider end of their tyre range, covering the 2.6, 2.8, 3.0, 4.0 and the 4.8s, and they reckon that it equates to drop in price of those tyres by around 35%. Hurrah!
Don’t believe me? Heres the press release; “Maxxis has chosen The Bike Place (14 – 16 January), to announce a number of significant price reductions across a broad section of its cycle tyre portfolio, including some of the brand’s newly introduced MTB patterns.
Attributed to lower production costs, the price reduction will come into force for all orders placed on or after the 15th January 2018; offering a more appealing RRP for consumers looking to purchase their go-to Maxxis products. Anticipated to create a surge in consumer demand, the new price structure will deliver savings of up to 35 per cent across many of the brand’s most popular cycle tyres. These include the Minion FBF/FBR+, Chronicle+, Rekon+, Ikon+, High Roller II+ and the Minion DHF+/DHR II+; all of which are being showcased at The Bike Place”
