Maxxis Forekaster Tyre
There are lots of fast XC tyres available today. However, if you ride aggressively, you'll probably find that they don't offer the grip you need.
The Maxxis Forekaster was specifically designed for aggressive XC riders. With its mid-height knobs and wide spacing, the Forekaster offers better grip and braking while providing good mud clearance. Suitable for front and rear use.
2.6" only recommended for 30mm rims or wider.
- For aggressive XC use.
- Perfect for loose or wet conditions.
- Dual compound, Tubeless ready.

Predictable and fast rolling trail tyre
by Scott -
I've been running this on the front in 27.5x2.35 on an FSR Stumpjumper. Mounted and sealed up easily on 30mm TR rims. 2.35 EXO Dual. It started off around 2.3 but has grown to 2.35. Looks kind of round but I've found it to bite in well on loose dry terrain and to be very predictable. Doesn't like soft mud as a front tyre. Zero flats or cuts. I've run it on the rear over winter and it rolls well but climbing grip isn't stellar. I'd buy another one.
This Tyre Really Does Let You Be The Forekaster

These came with a new bike and I immediately replaced them, going tubeless at the same time. After much disappointment I went back to these on the rear only & it sits perfectly on my RF rim and offers up the grip I had been looking for.
I have not had a single flat and the tyre only now need replacing after at least 5000km of shreeding because it has no tread left and wheelspin up the loose stuff is getting to me..Will be replacing it with the same.
