Foldable Bead - 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.
Dual Compound - Two compounds used within the tread of select tyres to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
3C Triple Compound - Mountain Maxxis 3C Triple Compound Mountain Technology uses a harder, longer lasting base layer and two progressively softer top layers in order to
Optimise traction and stability. Maxxis offers three different configurations of their 3C Triple Compound Mountain Technology: Maxxspeed,
Maxxterra and Maxxgrip
MaxxTerra - An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than
MaxxGrip - 3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
Exo - 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
DoubleDown - DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tyre casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert
provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tyre, but in a lighter package.
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.
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.
Mountain - Although it was just debuted in 2018, Greg Minnaar’s signature Assegai tire has already racked up multiple World Cup and Enduro World Series wins. Maxxis is now offering the Assegai’s insane traction in a lighter, single-ply construction for use on your trail bike.
Downhill - Named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of Greg Minnaar’s native South Africa, the Assegai is ready to do battle on the mountain! The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.
