For demanding conditions: the Shorty folding tyre by Maxxis


DH WorldCup courses today are often steep technical monsters with constantly changing conditions. For this you need a mid-spike tyre that can handle dry, loose and extended corners as well as some mud. The Shorty is such a tyre. Large, high and slightly staggered side lugs penetrate loose soil and ensure predictable grip in corners at top speed. Two types of lugs alternate along the centre: rectangular lugs and square lugs, with strong bite under braking and excellent self-cleaning properties.

Note from the manufacturer:
Maxxis strongly advises against the use of ammonia-based sealant. Ammonia has been proven to attack the carcass and can weaken it by up to 30% after only a few months, depending on the amount used.

Guidelines for replacing E-bike components:

Before you replace components on your e-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked e-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

Technology:

EXO Protection
This extremely cut and abrasion resistant material protects the sidewalls of various Maxxis MTB tyres. It is very tightly woven, light and very flexible. As a result, the performance of the tyres remains convincingly good.

3C MaxxTerra
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.
The Freeride version of Maxxis 3C compounds. More grip and traction than the 3C MaxxSpeed compound, with less rolling resistance and longer durability than 3C MaxxGrip. The ideal Enduro and Freeride mixture, because it combines good rolling resistance uphill with great grip on the descent.

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.

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. Concerns tyres with a width of 2.4" and above.

Sehr guter Vorderreifen, allerdings ist es schade, dass es den nicht in MaxxGrip für die Exo Karkasse gibt. Vorne muss man ja nicht unbedingt DD fahren.

Habe ihn für den Winter gekauft und weil er für meine Felgenbreite von 33 mm optimiert ist. Er bietet etwas mehr Grip und Sicherheit als mein 2,35er MagicMary in der mittleren Mischung.

Der perfekte Reifen fürs Vorderrad am Enduro. Habe ihn eigentlich für Winter und Matsch gekauft, aber auch im Trockenen ist endlos Grip vorhanden. Grip in jeder Lage: schräge Wurzeln haben damit ihren Schrecken verloren :) Die Seitenstollen krallen sich einfach fest.
Die Tubeless-Montage verlief ohne Probleme und der Reifen ist dicht und kann mit wenig Druck gefahren werden.
Nach 3 Monaten ist noch kein merklicher Verschleiß sichtbar.

Der Shorty ist meiner Meinung nach eine Macht. Ich fahre ihn auf einer Flow Felge am Vorderrad und muss sagen das der Reifen massig Grip aufbaut und das in allen Lebens- und Schräglagen. Ich bin ihn sowohl über den Winter als auch bis in´s Frühjahr gefahren und muss wirklich sagen - es ist ein top Reifen. Am Hinterrad würde ich ihn allerdings nicht fahren wollen - da ist mir der Highroller II lieber. Das Einzige was nicht seine Stärke ist , ist das rollen auf Asphalt. Aber dafür ist er auch nicht gemacht ;)

Das letze was dieser Reifen will ist rollen, dafür bietet er massig Grip in allen erdenklichen Lagen. Top Winte- bzw. Matschreifen!
