Gamechanging Traction For Aggressive Enduro Riding
An assegai is an iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people. It is a fitting name for a tire that is ready to battle the trails. The Maxxis Assegai 29" Wide Trail Tire has tall knobs that are a gamechanger in dusty and loamy conditions as well as on wet roots and rocks. The Assegai's moderately-spaced transition lugs provide unparalleled tooth and traction when leaning hard into sketchy corners.
It features a 3C MaxxGrip compound that offers ridiculous grip and a slow rebound to keep you planted. It also has Double Down which provides extra support and protection in the sidewalls. It is tubeless ready so you can drop the tire pressure for a smoother ride and better traction. This tire has a Wide Trail casing that is optimized for 30 - 35mm wide rims.
