Advance Tire Construction

From Tubeless Ready to Double Down, Maxxis delivers the most advanced technology in the industry. Here’s how our superior construction benefits the rider.

TUBELESS READY
Tubeless tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tires provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tire without the weight penalty. Our TR tires use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight. Maxxis Tubeless Ready tires are the only Maxxis tires approved for use with liquid sealants. Using a liquid sealant in any non-TR Maxxis tire will void the warranty.

Tubula LG_sm (1)

TUBULAR
A traditional tire construction in which the tire casing is sewn or wrapped around an inner tube. These types of tires must be glued or taped onto tubular-specific rims.

Radial LG_sm

RADIAL ROAD
A radial construction orients the casing threads perpendicular to the direction of rotation. This allows the sidewall to easily bend and flex, resulting in a very compliant and supple ride.

Tubeless LG_sm

TUBELESS ROAD
Tubeless technology that combines a carbon fiber bead for strength and a butyl inner liner for air retention to eliminate the need for an inner tube. The Silkworm layer provides puncture protection from road debris. Choose Maxxis tubeless road tires for the ultimate road experience.

Butyl LG_sm

BUTYL INSERT
An extra piece of butyl rubber that extends from the bead of a downhill tire up into the sidewall. The butyl insert helps prevent pinch flats, protects the rim from hard hits and adds sidewall stability.

Lust LG_sm

L.U.S.T.
Maxxis mountain tubeless tires, certified to UST® standards, featuring Lightweight Ultimate Sidewall Technology (L.U.S.T.). This technology offers better puncture resistance, improved air retention, better longevity and lower weight than previous tubeless technologies. By adding a thin fabric layer to the sidewall, covered in a special airtight rubber compound, Maxxis created a casing that is lighter, tougher and holds air better.

Exo LG_sm

EXO PROTECTION
An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tires. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.

DoubleDown

DOUBLE DOWN (DD)
DoubleDown (DD) is the next step in the evolution of the dual-ply tire casing for enduro racing.  Two 120 TPI casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert provide the enduro racer with the support and protection of a downhill tire, but in a lighter package.
