Why We Like The Assegai Wide Trail 3C/TR Tire

The Maxxis Assegai Wide Trail 3C/TR 29in Tire provides unrelenting cornering grip and confidence-inspiring control across a wide range of conditions ranging from loose and dusty to slick roots and rocks after a recent rainfall. It's Minnaar's tire of choice for downhill racing and trail riding in all but the wettest, sloppiest mud encountered throughout the season, showcasing the Assegai's unbelievable grip and versatility. Minnaar looked at the design blueprints of both the Shorty and DHR in the making of this tire, creating one that bites tenaciously with its taller knobs and provides a lot of cornering support.

It's available exclusively in 2.5-inch Wide Trail casing, which optimizes its tread spacing for aggressive trail riders and downhill racers running wider rims for better traction and cornering control at the absolute limit. Maxxis recommends running this 2.5-inch tire on rim widths of 30 to 35 millimeters, giving you the ability to drastically lower tire pressure to gain benefits of grip and compliance over rugged stretches of trail.

The dual-ply downhill casing makes it up to the task of your favorite gravity riding disciplines, from lift-accessed park laps at the local resort to shuttle laps up the pass on the weekends. Maxxis 3C Maxx Grip compound uses the softest rubber compounds for superior grip and control when you're pushing things to the absolute limit on high-speed downhill runs. Additionally, it's tubeless-compatible, so you can securely seal them to the rim without any issues when you're riding hard and fast on downhill trails.

Outstanding front tire

I've used it several times

It’s a game changer. For the very first time tire itself works without applying brakes all the time. On the very easy turns I just can go. On sharp one brakes are required for sure but I can sense how tire works and just holds the line. Grip is amazing. I do like climbing and weight is not the issue. I did not notice significant problem with going up even though tire is definitely heavier than my previous XC one. However downhill rides are awesome. My current setup is assegai 2.5wt front/dhr II 2.4wt rear. Rims are 29 i27 and no issues whatsoever

Wrong weight Backcountry/CC...

The title of the tire here says "Wide Tire 3C Maxxterra EXO." If this is that tire, its claimed weight is 1,082. If it is a Double Down tire, it's not titled that way. The 3C-TR-DD tire weighs 1,395 claimed. So, the titles are wrong and the claimed weights are incorrect. But which tire are you selling in the ad? Is that the DD tire or the EXO tire, which is not DD?
