The Mountain Crusher

The Maxxis Assegai 29" Wide Trail 3C/EXO/TR MTB 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 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.

    Assegai EXO 2.5

    Awesome front tire that hooks up in most any condition. About 8 months on tire now with weekly, year-round riding involving lots of fireroad climbs to DH trail descents and tire still holding up and riding great with some side lug wear is all. Zero tears to tread while ridden hard in high speed, mixed trail terrain while I killed many DHR EXO, EXO casing rear tires in past year. Would run Assegai rear but not enough clearance since tire is exactly 2.6 in reality on 3035 rims from widest tread points. So a big 2.5 and why great as a front. Running Kenda Hellkat 2.4 rear that seems to be a good match in most all conditions.
