Product details


MAXXIS tire Assegai 29 x 2.50 WT 3C MaxxGrip TR downhill

The Assegai is the ultimate Downhill tire co-developed by former Downhill World Champion Greg Minnaar. He has used his many years of experience in racing there. The basic idea was to get the most out of already known Maxxis profiles.
In the middle of the tread the good running cleats of the Minion DHF and Minion DHR II were implemented. This gives an excellent rolling on hard surfaces, but also grip on wet roots and stones. Lightly shaped side lobes of the HighRoller take care of fast corners. With these you have a clearly defined border area and always enough reserves. Last but not least, the shorty adds its tread height and provides sufficient traction even on deep forest soils. With this intelligent mix you can really let it rip.

Wide Trail Casing (WT)
This special carcass design optimizes the profile layout and tire shape on today's wider wheel rims. Traditional tires are designed for narrow rims and get on square wheels too angular shape and thus not exactly optimal performance.
WT tires are optimized for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work perfectly on all rims with an internal dimension between 30 and 40 mm.

Tubeless Ready (TR)
tube loose tires have many advantages: you can drive with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube , the breakdown risk also decreases. MAXXIS TR tires are better prepared for installation with sealant than other "tubeless ready" tires. The bead of our TR tire is like a real UST tube tackle completely coated with a rubber layer. As a result, tube assembly on all rims with standard dimensions is already successful on initial inflation and with little liquid.
Even "normal" MAXXIS MTB tires can be mounted like other Tubeless tires with sealant as the carcass fabrics are very dense.
Officially released for tubeless assembly and guaranteed by MAXXIS are only the new MAXXIS TR models. Tubeless mounting of other models is at your own risk.

Note: We strongly advise against using ammonia-containing sealant. Ammonia has been shown to attack the carcass and, depending on the amount used, can weaken it by up to 30% after only a few months.

Dual Ply Casing
Two combined layers of fabric are wrapped around bead cores. This is an extremely stable and safe carcass is achieved, which is particularly necessary for downhill. On the side walls this is four-ply and on the treads even six-ply.

3C MaxxTerra
3C MaxxTerra is the best three-ply rubber compound for our Enduro and Freeride tires. Smooth running uphill, and best grip downhill, characterize this mixture as well as a long life.
