The Maxxis Assegai Tire - 29 x 2.5, Tubeless, Folding, Black, 3C MaxxGrip, EXO+, Wide Trail is a top-tier tire designed for the serious cyclist. Primarily intended for downhill racing and aggressive trail riding, this tire excels in mixed conditions.
The Assegai's knob height is strategically positioned between the Minion DHR II and the Shorty, providing optimal traction. The center knobs are heavily ramped on the leading edge to reduce rolling resistance, ensuring a smooth and efficient ride.
Additional small knobs located between the center tread and side knobs provide a seamless transition while cornering. This tire offers predictable traction, even over slippery roots and rocks. It's no wonder this is World Cup Champion Greg Minnaar's signature tire!
