Greg Minnaar's signature tire, the Maxxis Assegai, is renowned for its exceptional performance and remarkable grip. Designed to deliver unwavering traction, the Assegai maintains its tenacious grip throughout the entire profile, regardless of the lean angle. This tire provides riders with a sense of confidence and predictability, allowing them to push their limits on any terrain. The versatility of the Assegai is another notable feature, as it can be used both as a front and rear tire, ensuring a surefooted feel in any riding situation. For those seeking a balance between grip and speed, pairing the Assegai with a faster rolling rear tire is a winning combination.
|Wide Trail (WT) construction optimizes the tire’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tires are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tires are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider’s preference.
|DOUBLE DOWN (DD)
|DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire 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 tire, but in a lighter package.
|3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
|Tubeless tires 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 tire; and less chance of flatting because there is no tube. Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires: tubeless road, tubular, and tubeless ready.
