MAXXIS IKON SKINWALL
Maxxis’ latest prank for fast 27.5 “bikes!
Maxxis realizes its dual compound rubber in the further developed tire. The different positions in the tread blocks, with their respective degrees of hardness, should ensure less rolling resistance, a long service life and better grip. The low weight is achieved through the well-known fine 60 TPI carcass. Initial test drives confirm that the structure of the tire and the individual tread blocks are suitable for loose and hard surfaces.
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewall of various MTB tires. It is very densely woven, light and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tires remains convincingly good.
Tubeless ready (TR)
tube tubeless tires have many advantages: You can drive with less air pressure. This gives you better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube , the risk of breakdown also decreases. MAXXIS TR tires are better prepared for mounting with sealing milk than other “tubeless ready” tires. The bead our TR tire is that of a real Tax tube losreifen complete with a layer of rubber coated. As a result, the tube free assembly is successful for all rims with standard dimensions as soon as they are inflated and with little liquid.
“Normal” MAXXIS MTB tires can also be fitted with sealant like tires from other manufacturers, as the carcass fabric is very tight.
Only the new MAXXIS TR models are officially approved for tubeless assembly and guaranteed by MAXXIS. The tubeless assembly of other models is at your own risk.
Note: We strictly advise against the use of ammonia-containing sealing milk. Ammonia has been shown to attack the carcass and, depending on the amount used, can weaken it up to 30% after just a few months.
Two different rubber compounds are processed into a tread strip. Maxxis plans the arrangement of the mixtures according to the desired properties of the tires.
