DH WorldCup courses today are steep technical monsters with constantly changing conditions. Maxxis pros needed a mid-spike tire for this, which can cope with dry, loose and rutted out corners as well as with some mud. The Shorty is such a tire. A high-volume two-ply carcass makes it more versatile than the WetScream. Large, tall and slightly staggered side lugs penetrate loose soil and ensure predictable rounding of corners at the speed of light. In the center, two lug types alternate: Rectangular lugs and square lugs, with strong bite under braking and excellent self-cleaning.
3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.
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.
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.
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.
