Maxxis had four main highlights at Interbike this year, beginning with the Rekon and Forekaster 27.5x2.6" cross-country models, which are now suitable for an inner rim width of 30-35mm.

The Forekaster is a more aggressive cross-country tread, blurring the line between speed and hard-hitting capability. The Rekon is a faster rolling tire that's recommended for pairing with a Maxxis Ikon. The Rekon also comes in a reinforced variety, featuring bead-to-bead Nylon puncture protection to ward off pinch flats and eliminate that squirmy feeling you can get when running lower pressure in plus tires.

A new range of eBike tires also hits the Maxxis catalog this year. They are reinforced to comply with eBike regulations, and can withstand the rigors of increased speed and the extra payload that eBikes can carry. Also new are 27.5x3.0 FBR and FBF combinations.

Meanwhile, in the Maxxis trail bike tire line comes the new Griffin, which is available for 2017 in 26, 27.5, and 29x2.30 models. Originally designed as a park bike tire, the Griffin now comes in a lighter weight construction for enduro and trail bike use. High speed tread, paired with lots of ramping and a high knob profile allows riders to really dig in under hard braking.
