You want an all-round racing tyre that rolls very well, is very light, but also offers grip in almost all situations? The ASPEN is MAXXIS´s's answer to this requirement profile. In the middle of the tread, narrow, slightly angled lamellar studs alternate with small, angled block studs. They redefine the ideal combination of traction and light rolling. Seen in the direction of travel, the side cleats run in groups of two from the outside to the inside. This special arrangement provides significantly more grip in curves.
In spite of the all-round suitable cleat height of over 3mm and very good puncture protection with Silkworm Polyfiber Shielding, the ASPEN weighs only 585g with a width of 2.10 inches. Together with our superior eXCeption rubber compound, the ASPEN becomes an XC racing tyre whose performance is absolutely convincing because of its optimal handling, traction and grip, which is very puncture proof and whose service life is far beyond that of competitive models.

Rings made of Kevlar or another aramid fibre also hold the ring securely on the rim. The advantages are lower weight and easy transport due to the small packing size.
Silkworm Technology is a material developed by Maxxis that protects the carcass of various models. It increases the puncture resistance and tear resistance of the carcass.
