Hard Pack — Loose over Hard — Medium
High-volume casing, low-profile tread
- Race inspired low profile design
- Aggressive side knobs
- Lightweight XC race tire
- Dual Compound
Maxxis has done it again with its latest XC race tire. The new Maxxis Aspen pushes the limits of a lightweight XC tire designed to have minimal rolling resistance. The Aspen is designed with a high-volume casing to smooth out the roughest roots and rocks, while the dual compounds give optimal traction in the corners. So if crossing the finish line first is your top priority, then the Aspen was designed for you.
THREADS PER INCH (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tire’s casing.
Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier.
Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tire.Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply,as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
Tubeless tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube.
Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires:Tubeless Road, Tubular, and Tubeless Ready. The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tire will void the warranty.
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires.
This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tires to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
