World Cup courses today are steep technical monsters with constantly changing conditions. The pros needed a mid-spike tyre that could handle dry, loose and ridden corners as well as a little mud. The Shorty is such a tyre. A large volume double ply carcass makes it more versatile than the Maxxis mud tyre WetScream. Large, high and slightly staggered side studs penetrate loose ground and ensure predictable navigation of bends at the speed of light. In the middle, two types of studs alternate: rectangular studs and square studs, with strong bite during braking and excellent self-cleaning.
The right 3C compound for Maxxis Enduro and Freeride tyres. Smoothness uphill, as well as best adhesion downhill distinguish this mixture as well as a long life span.
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewalls of various MTB tyres. It is very densely woven, light and very flexible. Thus the performance of the tyres remains convincingly good.
Tubeless tyres have many advantages. You can ride with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no inner tube, the risk of a flat also decreases. Maxxis TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealing milk than other tubeless ready tyres. The bead of the Maxxis TR tyres is completely covered with a rubber layer, just like a real UST tubeless tyre. This means that the tubeless mounting of all rims with standard dimensions is already successful with the first inflation and with little liquid. Also normal Maxxis MTB tires can be mounted like tyres of other manufacturers tubeless with sealant, because the carcass fabric is very dense. Officially approved for tubeless mounting and guaranteed by Maxxis, only the new Maxxis TR models are available. Tubeless assembly of other models is at your own risk.
The Wide Trail construction optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and are too angular on wide rims for optimal performance. All Maxxis WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but function perfectly on all rims with an inner diameter between 30 and 39 mm.
