Insert BATSEAL Tyre Sealant into the Maxxis Assegai tyre. The sealant ensures punctures are sealed faster and maintains tyre pressures!

EXO+ is Maxxis’ medium-duty puncture protection option suitable for all-around trail riding and light weight e-bikes. We begin with a durable 60 TPI casing, add in our legendary EXO puncture protection layer in the sidewalls. Then top it off with a small butyl insert around the bead. The tough casing and EXO material ward off damage from rocks and roots. While the butyl insert protects the tyre from pinch flats and helps prevent rim damage.

DOWNHILL (DH) Two layers of casing material are used from bead to bead. This provides additional protection and sidewall stiffness for downhill applications.

3C MAXXTERRA An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed. But still provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.

3C MAXXGRIP uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.

WIDE TRAIL (WT) construction optimizes the tyre’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tyres are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tyre profile. This leads to less-than-optimal performance. WT tyres are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width. But are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider’s preference.

*Maxxis Wide Trail XC tyres are optimized for use with 30mm internal width rims, but they will perform well on rims as narrow as 25mm. Maxxis does not recommend rims wider than 30mm or narrower than 25mm.

TUBELESS TYRES provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction. Plus lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting because there is no tube. Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tyres: tubeless road, tubular, and tubeless ready.
