MAXXIS - 27.5" SHORTY
After gathering years of data and feedback from our World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes, the Shorty is completely new for 2021. The knob layout has been altered to improve wet traction, cornering performance, and mud shedding abilities. The narrower 2.40″ casing improves frame and fork clearance for when things get really sloppy and reduces weight.
- 3C MaxxTerra and 3C MaxxGrip compound options
- Trail, enduro, and downhill specs available
- Tubeless ready (TR) casing
- Wide Trail (WT) casing optimized for 30-35mm wide rims
Category: Trail, Enduro, Downhill
Recommended use: Dry and loose, wet and sloppy
Recommended installation: Front and Rear
27.5" x 2.40"WT
Wide Trail (WT) construction optimizes the tyre’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tyres are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tyre profile, leading to less than optimal performance. WT tyres are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider’s preference.
An intermediate triple compound configuration used across the mountain tyre line. The 3C MaxxTerra compound offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip, which makes it ideal for trail riding in all conditions.
EXO is a cut- and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of many Maxxis mountain bike and gravel tyres. This densely woven fabric is lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for enhanced durability for gravel, XC, and light-duty trail riding.
TUBELESS READY (TR)
Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting because there is no tube. Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tyres: tubeless road, tubular, and tubeless ready.
The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tyre will void the warranty.
