The Maxxis WetScream is an old tyre that’s been recently reissued in 29in size with a few tweaks to differentiate it from the existing 27.5/26in ‘Screams.
The pure grip of the Maxxis Assegai is unquestionable. There’s a less on/off and almost relaxed feel in turns compared to the iconic Minion DHR II.
Maxxis Minion DHR II WT arguably offers the most grip of all Maxxis models suitable for mixed conditions, and works fine year round.
The Maxxis Ikon+ has knob sizes and heights optimised for the higher volume and lower pressures of plus bikes, for the fastest trail riding experience.
Maxxis Aggressor is targeted as a bit of a do-it-all tyre, but has gained most popularity as a rear option, especially for hard-packed and dusty trails.
The Maxxis Forekaster sports mid-height tread blocks and wide cupped knobs down the middle. The Forekaster is suited to post-summer times.
The Maxxis High Roller II has an almost perfect blend of compliance, stiffness and stability, the rubber compound grips like stink.
What do you get if you tweak the Maxxis Minion DHF to suit wide rims? This ‘Wide Trail’ version is designed to square off less with the beads stretched out.
Secure cornering hold that comes at an earlier lean angle, which will suit riders looking for consistent grip
