Maxxis Shorty WT Folding Tire - 27.5x2.50 Inch - 3C MaxxTerra - TR Exo
DH WorldCup courses today are steep technical monsters with constantly changing conditions. For that, Maxxis' pros needed a mid-spike tire that could handle dry, loose, rutted turns as well as a little mud. The Shorty is such a tire. A high-volume dual-ply casing makes it more versatile than our WetScream mud tire. Large, high and slightly staggered side lugs penetrate loose soil and ensure predictable rounding of corners at the speed of light. Two lug types alternate in the center: rectangular lugs and square lugs, with strong bite under braking and excellent self-cleaning.
Maxxis WT tires are optimized for rims 30 mm or wider inside width.
Tubeless tires have many advantages: You can ride with less air pressure. This gives you better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there's no tube, the risk of punctures goes down, too. Maxxis TR tires are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other "Tubeless Ready" tires. The bead of the TR tires is completely covered with a rubber layer, just like a real UST tubeless tire. This makes tubeless mounting on all rims with standard dimensions already successful with the first inflation and with little liquid. Also "normal" Maxxis MTB tires can be mounted tubeless with sealant like tires of other manufacturers, because the carcass fabrics are very dense. Officially approved for tubeless mounting and guaranteed by Maxxis are but only the new Maxxis TR models.
3C MaxxTerra is just the right 3C compound for Maxxis' enduro and freeride tires. Smooth uphill, as well as best grip downhill characterize this compound as well as a long life.
The Exo Protection, consisting of extremely cut and abrasion resistant material, protects the sidewall of various MTB tires. It is very tightly woven, lightweight and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tires remains unchanged convincingly good.
