The Aspen pushes the limits of a lightweight XC tyre, designed to have minimal rolling resistance with a high-volume casing to smooth out the roughest roots and rocks. A dual-compound gives optimal traction in corners and speed on the straights. If crossing the finish line first is your top priority, the Aspen is for you.
Foldable beads also keep the tyre secured to the rim but are lighter weight and easily transported. The bead is made of spun aramid or Kevlar Fibers.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tyres to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tyres. This densely woven fabric is also
lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected.
Tubeless Ready (TR)
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. Liquid Sealants Should Only Be Used In The Following Types Of Tyres: Tubeless Road, Tubular, And Tubeless Ready. The Use Of Liquid.
Threads Per Inch (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tire’s casing. Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier. Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tyre.
Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply, as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
