Maxxis tyres

by -

Very happy with this.

The maxxis assegai is the ultimate DH tyre, hooks up on almost any terrain solid side wall and pretty much puncture free. I have 2 fitted to my demo 8 and 1 on the front of my remedy 8.

One up on the DHF


Awesome tyres. Usually run DHF's, but these are better. There is a continuity of grip, even if you don't lean the bike over as much as you should. Didn't notice that they roll any different to the DHF. Mounted easily on my 30mm rim.

The perfect tyre


Quite simply the best tyre I've ever ridden. Never put on a new tyre and not needed a few runs to get used to it, threw these on and half a run down I'd forgot they were new tyres. Great consistant feel and grip. Will be hard pushed to try something different for quite a while.

New favourite


First Exo+ casing I have tried. Steers well, feels stiiffer but still well damped.
This tyre is my new favourite front. Its feels different to say a DHF as there is no transition. Once you get used to that just let it rip! I have yet to wash out or loose traction with the tyre in dry and slightly damp conditions. Does roll a bit slower but hardly noticeable. Not an XC tyre anyway!

Paper thin casing


Very disappointed in the EXO+ casing. Mounted one to front rim, one run, pinched and hole in top and in bead. Run second new one and a pin prick hole on the top that would not seal. Will definitely not be running that casing ever again. So weak!
