The Maxxis Assegai is an amazingly gripy tyre that inspires confidence in riders, perfect for our challegning Australian riding conditions. The tyre has large centre knobs with a small ramp to decrease rolling resistance whilst having a solid rear profile to give riders plenty of traction under braking. The transition from centre knobs to side knobs is one of the smoothest in all of the Maxxis range. This allows riders to lean the bike into the corner with confidence in the grip through out the motion. Once lent over large side knobs hold riders true to their line. Designed by mountain biking great Greg Minnaar, the Assegai is a great heavy duty front mountain bike tyre for riders looking to maximise their grip.
