    Why don't companies make enduro casing tyres with harder compounds? Or at least I have not found any(suggestions are welcome). I can't be the only one who rides enduro bike just for fun and would like to prioritize durability over the best grip. I ride like 2-4 times a mont in bike parks and...
  2. Rigid/Hardtail Bikes
    I have pretty basic (but much loved) hardtail - an On-one Scandal 29er with 130mm travel and new two tone custom paintjob. I am getting more serious on it and hitting bigger features and much techier trails. I have been running Maxxis 2.5 DHF in the front and Ardent 2.4 in the back. At...

    Over the past year, we've brought you a series of features that look at the emerging trend of aggressive short-travel mountain bikes that straddle the dividing line between cross-country race bikes and trail bikes. We've dove deep into the technology behind the development of Vittoria's...

    Greetings fellow riders! I've been perusing Kenda's new tire lineup, and am a bit confused as to how their rubber compound compares to Maxxis' offerings. It seems like most, if not all, Kenda MTB tires come in only one rubber choice -- dual compound. Maxxis obviously has way more rubber...
  5. Where are the Best Deals?
    What's the deal with websites like these. I see them when doing a google shopping search for Maxxis Minion 29. Are they legit? How can their prices be lower than everyone else? Is it a blatant scam or will I receive a counterfeit and not even know it...

    I'm trying to decide on a new set of hoops for my bike. Both are similarly priced but want to hear from this forum what everyone's thoughts are performance-wise and ultimately which wheel is the better option. My big question is how the trail tires will work on these rims given the narrower rim...

  8. Wheels and Tires
    Just picked up these to replace the Minion DHF/Aggressor combo I was running on my 2021 Trek Top Fuel 8. Anyone else have any experience with the Barzo/Mezcal combo? The Maxxis combo felt way too heavy and sluggish especially on the uphill and I was washing out too much on the XR3s. I’m hoping...

    This year I have been riding Maxxis Aspen 29x2.40wt on DT Swiss i30 hookless carbon rims front and rear on Trek Top fuel 2020 bike. 1.11bar/16.1psi front, 1.25/18.1psi rear. Rider weight 68kg. I really like them and there seems to be many other riders who like them as well. Very nice tire for...

    I know the sidewall says 35-65 psi but is that for tubeless? I feel kind of uncomfortable putting 50+ psi in an innertube. Can a tube handle that?

    Maxxis is celebrating 20 years of the Minion! The venerable Minion tread pattern has remained basically unchanged from factory rider Colin Bailey's original design (other than scaling knobs for different sizes) since 2001, an impressive feat in this industry. Over 20 years, the Minion DHF-and...

    I own a trek marlin 5 and the stock front xr2 is worn. Does anyone have any suggestions? I will be using it for wet road and small single track riding. I was thinking Ardent race but what do you think?
  13. Wheels and Tires
    Hi there, I'm planning on doing some enduro racing on the east coast this summer and am getting a set of tires specifically for that. On the front, I will be running a Maxxis Assegai 2.5 DoubleDown Maxx Grip. On the rear, I want to run a DHR II 2.4 DoubleDown, but am not sure if I should go...

  16. Wheels and Tires
    I am in the market for the Maxxis Aggressor as a rear tire. I am needing to know the actual dimensions of the width of the mounted tire for both 27.5 and 29 diameter wheels. First: Maxxis Aggressor 29x2.3 on 30mm inner rims Second: Maxxis Aggressor 29x2.5 on 30mm inner rims Third: Maxxis...
  17. Wheels and Tires
    My bike came with a DHF/Aggressor 29x2.5 combo. I'm looking to decrease my rolling resistance by going to a Vittoria Mazza/Aggaro 29x2.6 TNT trail casing combo. Am I correct in thinking the Vittoria combo will roll better? Any input is welcome.
  18. Wheels and Tires
    Talk all you want about the benefits of upgrading wheels, brakes, or even your bike's entire drivetrain. But pound for pound (or gram for gram in this case), there is no better bang-for-buck upgrade than new mountain bike tires. After all, that spinning rubber is the only thing on your bike that...

But with so many tread patterns, tire widths, and confusing acronyms, it can be hard to sort through all the tire tech to find the best tire for you. We've rounded...
