The Maxxis Assegai - World Cup Champion Greg Minnaar's signature tyre!
While this tyre may not make you ride quite like Greg Minnaar, it's going to absolutely rip up those downhill runs. Greg having enough podium appearances under his belt has given him the ability to work with Maxxis in designing this tyre.
Some of the best aspects of various tyres such as the DHF, DHR 2 and HR have been combined to make this monster of a tyre that excels in all areas - other than fast rolling. If you are looking for that then this likely isn't the tyre for you. This is the kind of tyre that is going to do it's best to find grip anywhere!
The Assegai features tall and well supported side knobs that bite aggressively into corners and provide grip on wet rocks and roots. An extra lug/tooth has been added to give a consistent transition when leaning the bike over. The influence from the DHR 2 ensures that hard braking is taken care of too. The wide trail casing is perfect for those 30mm + internal diameter rims.
Shuttles runs and downhill your bag? Then you are going to love this tyre! Otherwise if you simply need a tyre that is going to handle all the various riding disciplines and conditions you can throw at it then this is it.
Tires will change the way your bike rides. Different tread patterns will perform better or worse depending on the conditions you're riding in. When it comes to the Maxxis Assegai though, it will perform exceptionally well in every condition. The name might sound funny, but it is named after the iron-tipped spear that is used by the Zulu people of South Africa. It has tall knobs that are designed to grip in dust and loam and also offers grip on wet roots and rocks. It features Maxxis's 3C MaxxGrip rubber compound, has a Wide Trail casing that is optimized for 30 - 35mm internal width rims, has a dual-ply downhill casing, and is tubeless ready so you can run lower tire pressures for increased traction. If you're looking for a fast tire that performs excellently in all conditions, then you'll love the Assegai.
