The Details

The Maxxis Assegai tyre is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. It is Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa's signature tyre. He thought it was a fitting name for a tyre ready to battle on the mountain. It features tall knobs which punch through dust and loam, finding traction where other tyres can't. It still offers incredible support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. Whilst other tyres may excel in certain conditions, the Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast, everywhere.

Maxxis EXO+ construction combines two of our best puncture protection materials: SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead to bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%, and resistance to pinch flats by 28%.

The tyre is Tubeless Ready (TR) to 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.

An intermediate compound configuration is used in select mountain tyres. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than 3C MaxxGrip.
