For all-around XC performance in a broad range of conditions, it’s hard to top the Ikon. With a high-volume casing and fast-rolling tread design, the Ikon offers comfort and predictable traction. As its name suggests, the Ikon stands above the competition.
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.
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
Optimize Traction And Stability. Maxxis Offers Three Different Configurations Of Our 3C Triple Compound Mountain Technology: Maxxspeed,
Maxxterra And Maxxgrip
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 Sealants In Any Other Maxxis Tyre Will Void The Warranty.
One compound throughout the tread optimized for longevity and performance.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tyres to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
Used primarily in cross country tyres, the two compounds in the outer layer are specially formulated to reduce rolling resistance and optimize treadwear and traction.
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.
SilkShield offers protection from bead-tobead whereas Silkworm is found under the tread only. SilkShield provides an additional level of protection for sidewalls as well as under the tread
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.
Threads Per Inch (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tyre’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.
