Product Info

When it's muddy or loose enough to consider whether you're even dropping in at all, a Maxxis Shorty Tire can make all the difference. Its tall knobs are spaced far apart, helping them dig deep for traction and shed any mud they might pull back up with them. Extra soft and grippy rubber ensures you gain as much purchase as possible in nasty conditions, getting you to the bottom of your run safely and in control. DoubleDown casing lets you run very low pressures without fear of flatting, too. Still not sold?--you should know that World Cup downhillers sponsored by other tire brands ride blacked-out Maxxis tires when their paychecks are on the line.

Product Details


3C MaxxGripMaxxis 3C Triple Compound mountain technology uses a harder, longer lasting base layer and two progressively softer top layers in order to optimize traction and stability. 3C MaxxGrip is a new name for the downhill 3C compound configuration that you have come to know and trust. 3C Maxx Grip offers the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.

Casing120 TPI, Folding

DoubleDown (DD) Dual-Ply ConstructionDoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire casing for enduro racing. Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.


Tubeless ReadyTubeless 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. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tire without the weight penalty. Maxxis TR tires use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight. Maxxis Tubeless Ready tires are the only Maxxis tires approved for use with liquid sealants. Using a liquid sealant in any non-TR Maxxis tire will void the warranty.

For Very Loose or Muddy ConditionsAfter gathering years of data and feedback from World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes, the Shorty has been completely redesigned. The knob layout has been altered to improve wet traction, cornering performance, and mud shedding abilities. The narrower 2.40″ casing improves frame and fork clearance for when things get really sloppy and reduces weight.
