Tubeless tyres have many advantages: You can drive with less air pressure and therefore have better traction, the rolling resistance is lower than with hose, and where there is no hose, the risk of breakdowns is also reduced. MAXXIS TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealing milk than other tubeless ready tyres, because the bead of our TR tyres is completely covered with a rubber layer like a real UST tubeless tyre. This means that tubeless mounting is successful with the first inflation and with little liquid on all rims that comply with the standard dimensions.Normal MAXXIS MTB tires can also be fitted with sealant like tires from other manufacturers, as the carcass fabrics are very dense. However, only the new MAXXIS TR models are officially approved for tubeless installation and guaranteed by MAXXIS, the tubeless installation of other models is at your own risk.
An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.
The previous EXO+ construction was based on a 120 TPI carcass reinforced with SilkShield and EXO puncture protection layers. The new EXO+ construction is built on a 60 TPI carcass coated with a new abrasion-resistant rubber. The sidewalls feature a now rubberised EXO puncture protection layer and a short butyl insert is incorporated over the bead. While the previous EXO+ technology had more puncture protection than EXO, the new EXO+ technology now offers almost twice the puncture protection and 20% more puncture protection, placing it pretty much between EXO and DD – with only 1-5% extra weight depending on the model. This should be a significant added value for many riders. The rolling behaviour of the new construction is very similar to the previous one. Although a 120 TPI rolls better than a 60 TPI in a direct comparison, SilkShield “dampens” this difference.
Wide Trail Casing
Wide Trail (WT) construction optimizes tread layout and tyre shape on today’s wider rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and are too angular on wide rims for optimal performance.
WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but function perfectly on all rims with an inner dimension between 30 and 40 mm.
