MAXXIS TYRE TECHNOLOGY:
EXO+ | Wide Trail | 3C
Maxxis prides itself on being one of the most technologically advanced bicycle tyre manufactures in the world. In conjunction with the world's fastest athletes - like Greg Minnaar, Nino Schurter and Mathieu van der Poel - engineers are able to design, test and build the world's best tyres.
Read on to find out more about Maxxis' new EXO+ puncture protection, Wide Trail tyre construction and 3C rubber compound technologies.
PUNCTURE PROTECTION | EXO+
EXO+ is the combination of Maxxis' two best puncture protection materials - EXO and SilkShield.
The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two material create EXO+ improving puncture protection and reducing the chance of pinch flats.
Critically, on higher volume Wide Trail tyres, EXO+ adds additional support to the tyre casing reducing tyre roll, keeping you in control.
TYRE CONSTRUCTION | WIDE TRAIL
Wide Trail (WT) construction optimises the tyre’s tread layout and profile on today’s modern, wider rims. Traditional tyres are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance.
WT tyres are optimised for a 35mm inner rim width but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider’s preference.
COMPOUNDS | 3C
Perfect for Marathon, the two compounds in the outer layer are optimised for speed and durability.
Super soft gravity compound to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction.
