With an exceptional range of Maxxis tyres found here on Bike Wheels Australia, we have created a short summary of the technology and terms that are often contained within the product descriptions. Learn all about these definitions below!
EXO Puncture Technology
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tyres. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.
Double Down (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tyre casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tyre, but in a lighter package.
MaxxShield represents the ultimate in flat protection. We begin with our SilkShield bead-to-bead protection and add our K2 (Kevlar® Composite) layer under the tread for unparalleled durability.
Tubeless Ready Downhill
Tubeless downhill set-ups are a great way to shave some weight and spend more time in the bike park or shuttling hot laps on your local runs. Sealant-compatible rubber is used with the familiar Maxxis dual-ply 60 TPI downhill construction and butyl insert for support and rim protection in order to offer the benefits of increased grip and reliability. A Tubeless Ready bead securely locks to the rim and the foldable bead provides additional weight savings.
Tubeless Road Downhill
Tubeless technology that combines a carbon fiber bead for strength, a bead cushion for security, and a liquid-sealant compatible rubber for air retention, eliminating the need for an inner tube. The puncture protection layer helps prevent damage from road debris. Liquid sealant may be used to prevent any loss of air pressure. Choose Maxxis Tubeless Ready road tires for the ultimate road experience.
3C Triple Road
Triple Compound road technology utilizes three distinct silica compounds in different locations within the tread of the tyre. The center compound is optimized for exceptional treadwear and low rolling resistance. The progressively softer shoulder compounds provide increased grip while cornering. Choose a Triple Compound Maxxis road tyre for the ultimate in tyre handling in all conditions.
3C Triple Compound Mountain
Maxxis 3C Triple Compound mountain technology uses a harder, longer lasting base layer and two progressively softer top layers in order to optimize traction and stability. Maxxis offers three different configurations of our 3C Triple Compound mountain technology: MaxxSpeed, MaxxTerra and MaxxGrip.
A special low-rebound, high-traction compound used in select mountain tyres.
