MAXXIS tires IKON 29 x 2.20 3C MaxxSpeed TR EXO
Maxxi's latest coup for fast 29er bikes!
Maxxis has implemented its 3C MaxxSpeed rubber compound in the tire that has been further developed. The different layers in the tread blocks, with their respective degree of hardness, should ensure less rolling resistance, a longer service life and better grip. The low weight is achieved by the well-known fine 120 DPI carcass.
The structure of the tire and the individual tread blocks is ideal for loose and hard ground, but the non-slip 3C MaxxSpeed rubber compound is also convincing on rocks and roots when it is wet.
For very rough, rocky terrain, this IKON has the EXO-Protection version, which safely protects the side walls with little additional weight.
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.
Tubeless Ready (TR)
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 inner tube , the risk of punctures is also reduced. MAXXIS TR tires are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other "tubeless ready" tires. The bead of our TR tires is completely covered with a rubber layer 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.
"Normal" MAXXIS MTB tires can also be mounted tubeless with sealant like tires from other manufacturers, as the carcass fabric is very dense.
However, only the new MAXXIS TR models are officially approved for tubeless assembly and guaranteed by MAXXIS. The tubeless assembly of other models is at your own risk.
Note: We strongly advise against 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.
Our fastest 3C compound for XC and some AllMountain / Enduro tires is designed for the lowest rolling resistance due to the hard substructure and the fast compound in the center of the tread, but with the non-slip compound on the sides it also offers superior grip in curves, even in the wet. The very long service life is also typical of MAXXIS.
