Maxxis Aggressor Tyre
Designed as a fast tyre for aggressive riders in rowdy terrain.
The Aggressor features a lower profile centre tread for speed and yet, provides larger side knobs for cornering performance. While it doesn't offer the same level of grip as some of the more aggressive tyres, it is considerably faster.
A high performing tyre that is well-suited for front and rear use on a trail bike. However, for more aggressive riding, the Aggressor is more likely to be used as a rear tyre on all-mountain and Enduro bikes. When used as a rear tyre, we recommend a DHF (personal favourite combo!) or Highroller 2.
- Great tyre for everything from trail to Enduro use.
- Best on high-speed trails that are loose, loose over hard or medium surfaces.
- Available in either a Double Down casing for exceptional strength and reliability or an EXO casing for lighter weight.
2.5" only recommended for rims 27mm or wider.
Tip: For racers and riders who enjoy technical terrain, the double down casing works extremely well! The weight penalty is worth the extra flat protection when you need it!

Rocky hard pack trails
My local trails are hard pack and rocky. Tried a heap of tyres on this terrain and aggressor is the best balance between grip and tyre longevity.. you won’t have the outer knobs ripping off early and you still have a a lot of control over the back end..
50% grip 50% slick
Good rolling speed on hard packed stuff we find in Sydney during the drier months mths. Not a grippy as a MInion DHR II on the loose stuff (sandstone is OK) but that's the entire point...you'll have the back end going sideways if doing cuttys.
Great rear tyre
Excellent rear tyre! Have bought this repeatedly. Excellent grip and lasts a lot longer than some other tyres that came stick on my bike.
Maximise your tyres
Rear tyre repolacement. Soft edges give good grip low profile centre gives good rolling speed etc.
Chose this tyre as I
by SoyNinja -
Chose this tyre as I needed something more durable than the Exo casing as I ride a lot of rocky areas and tore my Exo tyres casing and punctured the tyre as well. I didn't want the weight and rolling resistance of the dh casing though. The tread pattern also isn't as close together as the pictures indicate and it rolls nearly as well as an ardent but grips heaps better, more like a dhr when it comes to grip on loose terrain, tyre corners predictably as well like all Maxxis tyres seem to. The thicker casing does make it harder to fit to a rim than an Exo tyre but as a plus side it holds air better
Got a rubber fetish?

I have a rubber fetish.
My friends all know it.
My wife knows it.
Various online bike shops know it.
This tyre has not helped. It has a nice big juicy bag to it, scrumptiously firm side knobs without being overly controlling of my need to occasionally slide out my rear end and the brutally tough DD casing allows me to pound away at the ground for hours on end without any damage to my internal parts.
I used to run the 2.3 version, but this 2.5WT version is tickling me in all the right spots.
Paired with the WT High Roller 2 up front it could just be the combo to win my heart for the long haul.
