After more than two years of development the Maxxis ASSEGAI has finally arrived. Greg Minnaar's Signature tyres are the essence of his 30 years of racing experience and the expertise of Maxxis from over 50 years of tyre production. The Assegai is a combination of the Minion DHF, Minion DHR II and the HighRoller. Thus it was designed from the best Maxxis profiles.
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewalls of various MTB tyres. It is very densely woven, lightweight and very flexible. The performance of the tires remains convincingly good.
Two different rubber compounds are processed into a tread strip. We plan the arrangement of the compounds according to the desired properties of the tyres.
Tubeless tyres have many advantages: You can drive with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no inner tube, the risk of a puncture also decreases. MAXXIS TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealing milk than other tubeless ready tyres. The bead of our TR tires is completely covered with a rubber layer like a real UST tubeless tire. This means that the tubeless mounting of all standard rims is already successful with the first inflation and with little liquid.
The Wide Trail construction optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and are too angular on wide rims for optimal performance. All Maxxis WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but function perfectly on all rims with an inner diameter between 30 and 39 mm.
