The DH version of the Maxxis Shorty was an instant favorite of our World Cup DH racers. The single-ply version offers trail riders the same traction in a much lighter package.
Mid-spike tread design Specification
Conditions: Loose, Mud, Wet Cornering Control: 1 2 3 4 Rolling Efficiency: 1 2 3 4 TPI: 60 Bead: Foldable Ply Construction: Single Compound: 3C Maxx Terra Max PSI: 60 Tech: Tubeless Ready, Double Down Technology
3C Maxx Terra: An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres. 3C Maxx Terra is softer and offers more traction than 3C Maxx Speed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than Maxx Grip.
Double Down: With dual-ply 120 TPI casing and a butyl insert, Maxxis' Double-Down technology is ideal for enduro-style rides.
Tubeless Ready: Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tyres provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tyre without the weight penalty. Our TR tyres use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight.
