The downhill version of the Maxxis Shorty Wide Tyre is a favourite amongst Maxxis sponsored downhill riders including DH World Cup winner Danny Hart. This trail version has the same traction, but has a single-ply construction to keep the weight low - exactly what trail riders and enduro racers are looking for. It's also tubeless ready and features Maxxis' 3C MAXX Grip compound, which offers outstanding grip over loose and wet terrain.
3C MAXX Grip: A new name for the downhill 3C compound configuration that you have come to know and trust. 3C Maxx Grip offers the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
Tubeless Ready: Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures to improve traction, a lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre, and less chance of flats. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tyres provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tyre without the weight penalty and the square bead profile of their TR tyres is designed to work with a broad range of tubeless rims. Maxxis' TR tyres use a special construction, which allows the use of liquid sealants to make them airtight and to help prevent punctures. If needed, Maxxis TR tyres can also be used with an inner tube.
