Maxxis produce multiple compounds for various types of terrain and racing development.
For instance, sometimes the professional team and sponsored riders need tires that will perform well in all conditions; other times they need a tyre that will handle wet rocks and roots, or a tire that will have a slower rebound.
Double Ply Casing Two 60 tpi (threads per inch) casings vulcanized with butyl rubber reinforced sidewalls construct Maxxis downhill casings, which are world renowned for performance and reliability. Our DH casings provide more stability at high speeds and also allows for lower air pressure without the risk of pinch flatting.
The reliability and stability at speed of our DH casings has won the 2001 NORBA DH Overall Title (with Maxxis pilot John Kirkcaldie), as well as numerous NORBA NCS and UCI Downhill podium spots.
Choose from Super Tacky - compound (42a) to address the wet, muddy courses, or the Slow Reezay- compound (40a) which allowes the tire to rebound much slower than a conventional tire, offering maximum grip and is the softest compound available.
