Minion SS combines the cornering grip of a grip enduro tyre with the rolling characteristics of a fast XC tyre. Small, ramp-shaped studs in the centre are framed by the much loved and praised Minion side studs. This combination results in a fast rolling tyre with a square shape that clings to loose surfaces. Perfect for modern enduro racing with long descents and longer climbs.
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. The arrangement of the compounds is planned according to the properties of the tyres.
Silkworm is a protective layer developed by Maxxis that lies under the tread and protects the tyre from punctures, cracks and other carcass injuries.
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 is successful on all rims with standard dimensions even with the first inflation and with little liquid.
