eXCeption series casing, 120 TPI casing provides a lightweight tyre with exceptional traction, ideal for racing.
3C, High Dispersion Silica centre tread for long life and low rolling resistance, two progressively softer silica-based side compounds for increased grip in corners.
MaxSpeed - New Tech for 2023:
Developed in cooperation with Nino Schurter (winner of more World Championship and World Cup titles than any rider in XC history), the new MaxxSpeed uses a silica filler to improve both speed and wet traction. Testing shows that MaxxSpeed reduces rolling resistance by more than 25%, providing an edge which can shave as much as a minute off a rider’s time in a 90-minute race.
This dramatic improvement in performance hasn’t been confined to the lab. MaxxSpeed has delivered real-world results for Schurter and other SCOTT-SRAM riders for the past several seasons, aiding multiple World Cup and World Championship wins. Schurter appreciates the advantage MaxxSpeed provides: “XCO racing is more competitive than ever. The new MaxxSpeed compound rolls faster and grips better than before, giving me an edge over my rivals.”
TUBELESS READY, Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tire without the weight penalty.
The square bead profile of our TR tires is designed to work with the broad range of tubeless rims available today.
Our TR tires use a special construction which requires the use of liquid sealants to make them airtight and to help prevent punctures.
