Maxxis Shorty 27.5x2.4 WT Tire
After gathering years of data and feedback from their World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes, the Maxxis Shorty is completely new for 2021. The knob layout has been altered to improve wet traction, cornering performance, and mud shedding abilities. The narrower 2.40" casing improves frame and fork clearance for when things get really sloppy and reduces weight.
Compound and Construction Information:
WT - Wide Trail construction optimizes the tire’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tires are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tires 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.
3C Maxx Grip DD - Uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications. Double Down is two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert to provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.
3C Maxx Terra EXO - An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip. Includes EXO, an extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires ideal for when the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.
3C Maxx Grip DH - Uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications. 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.
