Designed with Aussie DH legend Troy Brosnan, the Dissector from Maxxis is made for dry and dusty trails. Calling on Troy's experience pushing the limits on the DH World Circuit, Maxxis took aspects of the ever-popular DHF, High Roller II and the Rekon to create a fast-rolling tyre that still has plenty of cornering grip when you lean into it.

The centre knobs are ramped for better rolling speed but are squared off at the rear so they will grip and not slide under braking. As you transition to the corner, the small knobs will keep you in control before you hit the large staggered outer knobs that provide excellent grip as you really lean it in.

It's the perfect tyre for the loose and dusty trails we have here in Australia!

Who's this item for:  This tyre is perfect for Trail, Enduro or DH riders looking for a fast-rolling tyre that still has plenty of cornering traction.

Suggested terrain use:  Perfect for use in Loose, Loose Over Hard, Hard Pack, or Medium conditions.

Which wheel:  For Trail applications, the Dissector can be used as a front and rear tyre. For Enduro or DH racing, Maxxis recommend using it as a rear only with either a DHF or Assegai upfront for better grip.

Rim width:  The wide trail casing is optimised for rims with a 30-35mm inner width.

Weight:  The Maxxis claimed weights are as follows:

  • 27.5" EXO: 800gm
  • 27.5"DH: 1133gm
  • 29" EXO: 861gm
  • 29" DH: 1206gm.

Pros:  It's basically made for Australian conditions, fast rolling speed with excellent cornering grip in dry conditions. If it works for Troy it will work for you!

Cons:  Only available in EXO or DH casing, it would be nice if there was something in between. Not great for riding in deep mud.

For a great front tyre check out the Assegai or the DHF.

Troy Brosnan can't be wrong can he?

by

Get yourself one of these fast rollers, and leave your mates in the dust... just maybe not if you're riding Les Gets in the wet.

Great tyre Maxxis reliability

by

Dissector roll great have great grip and exo+ is the way to go for front or rear.

Great trail tyre.

by -

Bought to replace an Assegai on the front of my trail bike for an easier rolling option. Works great and feels much easier to push up the hills with still enough grip on the way down.

Nice feel but didn't last very long

by

Really nice corner feeling, roll pretty good. I think they corner better than a minion and roll better. Not great getting up slippery rock surfaces. Straight line breaking is not the best either. It skips around a bit when doing for gravity riding.

But I did not have a good time with their longevity.

I purchased two Exo+ and I got about 6 rides out of them all up. The bead on both got torn open. That's happened to me once in 15 years before this, but had one Dissector fail on the second ride and the other fail on the 3rd or 4th. Not very happy with that. Maybe stick to the Aggressor.

Good but not super tough

by

Was a pretty nice tyre until I ripped one of the side knobs off partially on some loose rocks causing a flat. This was with the EXO casing, and I wasn't going particularly fast.

Great on rear. Don't use on front.

by

Good on rear. Rolls fast and bites on corners.

Don't use on front. Centre knobs sit up high above side knobs. Good for rolling, but there's a long vague transition before you hit the side knobs when leaning.
