Designed by multiple world cup champion, the Assegai is ready to do battle on the mountain! Built for Downhill, Enduro and aggressive trail riding, in mixed conditions, the Assegai's tall knobs dig deep to find traction in loose dirt and loam, but don't sacrifice the support needed to navigate rocks and hardpack terrain with confidence. The tread pattern also provides a smooth and predictable cornering transition—a welcome feeling when you're trying to hold a line through tricky off-camber turns. It's available exclusively in 2.5-inch Wide Trail casing, which optimises its tread spacing for aggressive riders running wider rims for better traction and cornering control at the absolute limit. Maxxis recommends running this 2.5-inch tire on rim widths of 30 to 35 mm, giving you the ability to drastically lower tire pressure to gain benefits of grip and compliance over rugged stretches of trail.
