Maxxis Shorty Tire

Best Price At

DESCRIPTION

Today’s World Cup downhill tracks are steep, technical monsters with ever-changing conditions. Our pros needed a mid-spike tire that could handle dry, loose, blown-out corners as well as a bit of mud. The Shorty is that tire. A high-volume, dual-ply downhill casing makes the Shorty a more versatile option than a dedicated mud spike like our Wet Scream. Large, tall and slightly staggered side knobs penetrate loose soil to provide predictable, stable cornering at warp speeds. The alternating pattern of the center tread features widely-spaced knobs to clear debris, and their square shape offers plenty of braking bite. For downhill mountain biking in gnarly, mixed conditions, the Shorty can’t be beat!

OVERALL
RATING

Strength:

In 29" 2.5 DH maxx terra variant, the Shorty has proven as the best front tire I have ever tried. immense grip, predictability, braking stability, mud clearance, even low wear. Many of my friends have tried it...and stayed on it. It has a wrong rep of being just wet and mud tire, but it covers all the loose, gravel, dusty dirt stuff aswell. Of course you dont need the knobs on superhard pack and solid rock, but in the alpine areas of EU, this tire preforms all year round.

Weakness:

rolling resistance is the only downside... but even that is relative, given the nature of the tire itself and the type of terrain we are riding.
