Product Info

Named after the spears of fearsome Zulu warriors, the Maxxis Assegai Wide Trail Tire is a downhill beast ready to attack the mountain. Maxxis' 3C MaxxGrip compound offers excellent grip for the full range of trail conditions you'll encounter from dust to glop, plus confidence inducing traction over wet roots and rocks. Tall side lugs deliver solid and predictable bite while cornering, while an overall more rounded profile makes for smooth transitions from the side to the center portion of the tread. Grab yourself some Maxxis Assegai Wide Trail Tires and fly!

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.

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.

Folding BeadFoldable beads keep the tire secured to the rim but are lighter weight and easily transported. The bead is made of spun aramid or Kevlar® fibers.


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.

Wide Trail Casing Optimized for 30-35mm Inner Width Rims
