Seeking unrelenting traction for aggressive riding across technical terrain? Look no further than the Maxxis High Roller II 3C/EXO/TR 29in Tire for a tubeless-ready tire with grippy 3C Maxx Terra rubber compound paired with an aggressive tread pattern. EXO construction reinforces the sidewalls with a densely woven fabric that's lighter than burlier Double Down versions. EXO is ideal for embarking on trails with sharp rocks and thorny vegetation, giving you an extra element of protection when you're rallying across the rough stuff.
Looking at the High Roller II's aggressive tread pattern, it's clear that it's ideal for a wide variety of trail surfaces, from loose-over-hard to medium and downright wet conditions. It clears mud well, so you'll feel confident on this tire in wetter months and rainy environments. Modified shoulder knobs dig tenaciously into underlying soil and rock, improving overall traction and braking control at high speeds. Ultimately, its versatility and aggressive feel make it a favorite choice around the Competitive Cyclist office here along Utah's Wasatch Range, usually paired with an Ardent out back for a bit more rolling speed.
This particular version of the High Roller II features 3C Maxx Terra compound, which is a triple compound rubber that's hardest along the base, layered with softer compound rubber for maximum control when you're railing corners and dropping into rocky descents. Since it's a bit softer than dual-compound tires, you'll find it gives up a bit in rolling resistance and tread longevity in favor of maximum control and adept handling.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I went from a bike with 27.5+ tires to a 29er. I chose the High Roller for my rear tire and it has not disappointed. I've had many friends popping their tires this season and this sucker has held up like no other. The traction was another big concern since I am used to wider tires but this has ridden like a bigger tire.
