The Assegai is built to go fast everywhere...
What do you get when you combine attributes from legendary Maxxis treads like the Minion DHR II, High Roller, and Shorty? You get the Assegai, the new signature tire from the mind of Greg Minnaar! The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks.
Product code: EAWHY6AL0250 | Colour: BLACK
Tyre TPI - TPI refers to the number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tyre casing. Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier. Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tyre. Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply, as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
Dual Compound - Two compounds used within the tread of select tyres offers lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
Tubeless Ready (TR) - Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tyres: Tubeless Road, Tubular, and Tubeless Ready. The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tyre will void the warranty.
Wide Trail Construction - Wide trail (WT) construction optimises the tyre 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, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tyres are optimised 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.
EXO Protection - Maxxis EXO is an extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of selected mountain bike 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.
