Acceleration and braking traction is accomplished via horizontally-aligned grooves with square edges. Cornering adhesion is a result of "U" shaped channels that run the full sidewall to sidewall of the tread pattern. The HookWorm was engineered to optimize the entire tread pattern as a potential contact patch, analogous to a motorcycle road racing tyre. This allows traction in all high-lean situations.
Curved grooved slick design
High rated pressure 65 PSI
Rim to rim tread-protected sidewalls
Tire Size - 20” x 1.95”
TPI - 60
Max PSI - 65

Great grip! I am surprised, that this tyre lasts so long, and i can ride it to 110psi. The only thing I don't like is the weight. so 4 stars for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous BUENA COMPRA
Montadas en bici de street. Para asfalto y cemento ruedan muy muy bien. Agarran quees una pasada y en los flancos tienen algo de dibujo y mas grosor de lo normal, haciendo que los llantazos sean escasos. NO SE OS OCURRA METERLAS EN ARENA QUE NO AGARRAN CASI NADA!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent Unicycle Tyre
I have been using this Maxxis Hookworm for my 20" Unicycle for the last 2 years. It's excellent tread coverage with sure grip and low rolling resistance, makes it ideal for Unicycles. Maxxis are the only tyres I recommend for Unicycles.
