Cross Country: Race TT and Crossmark II

The Race TT inherits the tread pattern of the Larsen, but has been refined for modern XC bikes and race courses. Tightly packed and ramped square knobs allow this tire to roll freely, while updated siping increases the braking and cornering limits. Available in 27.5 x 2.0” and 29 x 2.0”. Weights starting at 585g.

Maxxis Crossmark II cross country tire.

The Crossmark II improves on the speed of its predecessor while improving grip in intermediate conditions. The proven center ridge is designed to fly on hardpack, and an updated tread pattern provides better braking and cornering over a wide range of trail conditions. Available in 27.5 x 2.25”. Weights starting at 685g.

Maxxis Tomahawk all mountain tire.

All Mountain: Tomahawk

The Tomahawk is an all mountain tire designed to excel in all conditions. A low profile center makes it roll fast on hardpack, while open knob spacing allows the tread to clear mud when the trail gets wet. Large side knobs matched with the square profile allow for confident cornering. Available in 26 x 2.3”, 27.5 x 2.3” and 29 x 2.3”. Weights starting at 775g.

The Minion SS (semi slick) fills the gap between a fast rolling XC tire and a grippy DH tire by including a cluster of short, ramped knobs, flanked by the much-loved Minion side knobs. This is a fast rolling tire with a square profile that hooks up in loose terrain. Available in 27.5 x 2.3” and 29 x 2.3”. Weights starting at 745g.
