The Shorty model has long been a favourite amongst downhill riders, in fact, it has regularly been the tyre of choice for DH World Cup winner Danny Hart. This trail version has the same traction but has a single-ply construction to keep the weight low - exactly what trail riders and enduro racers are looking for.
EXO Protection: An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tyres. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.
Tubeless Ready: Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures to improve traction, a lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre, and less chance of flats. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tyres provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tyre without the weight penalty and the square bead profile of their TR tyres is designed to work with a broad range of tubeless rims.
