The essence of 30 years of racing experience: the Assegai folding tyre by Maxxis


Two years of development time, the essence of 30 years of racing experience and the expert knowledge of 50 years of tyre production have gone into Maxxis Assegai, the signature tyre from Greg Minnaar.

" My idea was to design a tyre around some of Maxxis' iconic tread patterns. I started in the centre by combining the Minion DHF and the Minion DHR II. The reason for this was that the surface of the DHF rolls well and maintains grip superbly on hardpack, in greasy turns and on wet roots and rocks. The DHR II added faster rolling speed and more aggressive braking.
Next, I worked on the 'extra' lug to give you more support when leaning the bike over so that there is a consistent feeling all the way onto the side lugs. And that is how we move on to talk about my all-time favourite tyre - the HighRoller. Maxxis engineers and I redesigned the HighRoller side lugs so that they had pretty much the same characteristics as the original did. But with the support provided by the extra lug, you have the ultimate wingman when cutting hard through flat turns.
In the end I took the lug height from the Shorty. The lugs are well supported, so the raised profile can easily bite into forest soil and dry, dusty ground."
Greg Minnaar

Technology:


3C MaxxGrip
The well-known 3C Downhill compound that many of the best downhillers have trusted for years. 3C MaxxGrip offers the ultimate grip and cushioning for unparalleled Downhill traction.
At Maxxis, the 3C tread is moulded from 3 different rubber compounds in one piece and is not subsequently assembled from two strips. Therefore, the treads can be shaped exactly according to the requirements of the respective tyre model, thus optimising the riding characteristics.

Double Down
Double Down tyres are constructed just like the downhill tyres from Maxxis. However, the two carcass layers, which are reinforced with a butyl inlay, each have 120 (instead of 60) tpi. Combined with the aramid bead, this makes the tyres considerably lighter.

Wide Trail Casing (WT)
This design optimises the tread layout and tyre shape on today's modern wider rims. Traditional tyres are designed for narrower rims and become square on wider rims, resulting in a less than optimal performance. WT tyres are optimised for an inner rim width of 35 mm, but work excellently on all rims with an inner dimension of 30 - 40 mm.

Tubeless Ready
Tubeless tyres have many advantages: you can ride with less air pressure. This gives better traction and reduces rolling resistance. And where there is no tube, the risk of punctures is reduced. Maxxis TR tyres are better prepared for mounting with sealant than other " tubeless ready" tyres. The bead of the Maxxis TR tyres is completely covered with a rubber layer like a real UST tubeless tyre. As a result, tubeless mounting is successful for all rims with standard dimensions even during the first inflation and with little liquid.

Hatte vorher den Maxxis Recon am Vorderrad montiert. Nun seid guten 200km den Maxxis Assegai und bin sehr zufrieden damit. Habe seit dem ich den assegai fahre ein viel besseres Gefühl am Vorderrad und bisher keine Gripprobleme (außer tiefer Sand das aber mit allem ungünstig).

Leichter Seitenschlag trotz korrekter Montage. Stört mich persönlich aber nicht. Auf Trails und Waldwegen spürt man davon eh nichts.

Super Grip, würde (werde) ich wieder kaufen.

Als Downhill Reifen super, am Enduro merkt man deutlich den erhöhten Rollwiderstand auch am Vorderreifen dafür bekommt man Grip ohne Ende
Tubeless Montage absolut problemlos
Leider recht teuer

Top Reifen ! Mega Grip und super stabil ! Wegen der DD Karkasse etwas schwieriger zu montieren, aber das sollte ja klar sein ;)

Seitenschlag trotz Montage ohne Reifenheber (was ein Krampf mit DT FR 560 war).
Recht ärgerlich.
Bislang nicht gefahren.

Nachtrag: Der beste Reifen (VR) den ich bislang auf loose over hardpack gefahren bin. In Kombination mit DHR II eine Wucht!

Response from bike-components on 29.07.2019:

Die meisten breiteren Reifen laufen nicht 100% schnurgerade, aber die Abweichung sollte eher gering sein.

In einigen Fällen sitzt der Reifen noch nicht ganz richtig. Das kann über die Kontrollstreifen ein der Reifenflanke fest gemacht werden. die müssen jeweils parallel zum Felgenrand laufen, dann sitzt der Reifen korrekt.

Wenn die Kontrollstreifen links und rechts jeweils sauber laufen, ist ein stark unrunder Reifen durchaus ein Reklamationsgrund.

Kann dem Reifen nicht so viel zuspruch geben. Im Wald bei leicht feuchten Bedingungen für mich kein guter Reifen, war komplett dicht und kaum halt. Im Park bei trockenen verhältnissen top. Da ich aber nicht immer denn Reifen für die jeweilige Bedingung wechseln will ist der Reifen kein Allrounder. Deshalb noch 3 Sterne weil er im Park Top funktioniert.

Bin schon so ziemlich alle Reifen gefahren, zum Schluss den Minion und bei loosen und nassen Bedingungen den Shorty. Dieser Reifen hier ist die beste Kombination. Verwende ihne auf meinem Enduro und Downhill.
