World Cup Champion Greg Minnaar's Signature Tire
The Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The Maxxis Assegai Wide Trail mountain bike tire measures 27.5" x 2.5," has 120 TPI EXO+ casing, and a claimed weight of 1100g.
The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.
