Mountain Bike Action New Products: Maxxis Shorty Tire
Maxxis Shorty Tire
Based on feedback from Maxxis’ World Cup DH and Enduro World Series-winning athletes, the second generation Shorty is rebuilt from the ground up. A completely revised tread pattern starts with splitting the “double-wide” single center knob in two, with additional support added to the cornering knobs.
Other changes include a narrower 2.40” width for better mud clearance and reduced weight. Revised siping on the knobs offer better braking and cornering traction and raised ridges on the casing help shed sticky mud.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
