Just had word from my local bike shop that the UK Maxxis importer has hiked prices with immediate effect.
A 29er Crossmark goes from £32 to £50 and the 29er TLR Ardent to £80. Small sized tyres also affected! ;o)
Currently makes Schwalbe look like good value but word is that they are going up soon as well. Better buy them while they’re cheap folks!
