Tubeless tires 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 tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tire without the weight penalty. The square bead profile of our TR tires is designed to work with the broad range of tubeless rims available on the market today. Our TR tires use a special construction which allows the use of liquid sealants to make them airtight and to help prevent punctures. If needed, Maxxis TR tires can also be used with an inner tube.
A traditional tire construction in which the tire is sewn around an inner tube. These types of tires must be glued or taped onto tubular-specific rims.
A radial construction orients the casing threads perpendicular to the direction of rotation. This allows the sidewall to easily bend and flex, resulting in a very compliant and supple ride.
Tubeless technology that combines a carbon fiber bead for strength and a butyl inner liner for air retention to eliminate the need for an inner tube.
An extra layer of butyl rubber wrapped around the bead of a Downhill tyre that helps prevent pinch flats and protects the rim from hard hits.
Maxxis mountain tubeless tyres, certified to UST ® standards, featuring Lightweight Ultimate Sidewall Technology (L.U.S.T.). This technology offers better puncture resistance, improved air retention, better longevity and lower weight than previous tubeless technologies. By adding a thin fabric layer to the sidewall, covered in a special airtight rubber compound, Maxxis created a casing that is lighter, tougher and holds air better.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven material is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected.
