MAXXIS tires Forekaster 29 x 2.40 WT DualCompound TR EXO
The new version of the Maxxis Forekaster has been specially developed for down country and trail use. This tire closes the gap between the fast-rolling Cross Country tires (Aspen, Rekon, RekonRace and Ikon) and the downhill-oriented All Mountain and Enduro tires (Dissector, Minion, DHF, DHR2 and Assegai) in the Maxxis portfolio. The new Forekaster is the perfect companion for long rides on different terrains. The new profile is characterized by the center lugs being closer together, which is said to reduce rolling resistance. In addition, the side studs have been enlarged and, thanks to the slits, not only offer more support, but also grip. The small ribs between the studs ensure better self-cleaning.
Manufacturer's Notes: Maxxis strongly discourages the use of sealant containing ammonia. Ammonia has been shown to attack the carcass and, depending on the amount used, can weaken it by up to 30% after just a few months. Maxxis recommends using Tire Plasma tire sealant.
Wide Trail Casing (WT)
This special carcass construction optimizes the tread layout and tire shape on today's wider rims. Traditional tires are developed for narrow rims and get a square shape on wide rims and thus a less than optimal performance.
WT tires are optimized for an internal rim width of 35 mm, but they also work excellently on all rims with an internal dimension between 30 and 40 mm.
Two different rubber compounds are processed into a tread strip. We plan the arrangement of the mixtures according to the desired properties of the tires.
EXO sidewall protection
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewall of various MTB tires. It is very tightly woven, light and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tires remains convincingly good.
tube 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 risk of punctures is also reduced. Maxxis TR tires are better prepared for installation with sealant than other "tubeless ready" tires. The bead of the Maxxis TR tires is completely covered with a layer of rubber, just like a real UST tubeless tube . As a result, tube installation is successful for all rims with standard dimensions the first time you pump it up and with little liquid.
