    Mud Wrestler Tyre Test Results

    Look to independent publications for the most gruelling tyre tests and their results.

    Cycling Weekly
    Considered an authority amongst cyclists, Cycling Weekly tested the Maxxis Mud Wrestler and awarded it a solid 8/10:
    “The tyre does well in muddy and loose conditions, retaining grip and not accumulating a lot of extra mass from mud and debris or being too prone to sideslip, with any mud which does stick soon clearing once on firmer ground. So, overall, the Mud Wrestler is a good choice for UK winter riding off-road. A good winter cross tyre, although the low central tread profile results in some slipping in muddier conditions.” – Paul Norman,, February 2017

    “…the first time I rode them was the half lap I snuck in just before the officials began staging my race. Forty-eight filthy minutes later, I knew I had found a real mud tyre in tubeless… There were a few places on the course where the mud was so sloppy that no 33mm tyre was going to pass without some issue, but once past the Maxxis shed the mud instantly. It also handled damp grass and loam with competence. The next day at Steilacoom’s familiar sandy loam and loose-over-hard, the Wrestler was confident and fast. It didn’t feel like I was giving away too much on the long paved straight at the finish line, either.

    On the Monday after the races I discovered a souvenir from my race weekend: a broken safety pin was embedded in my front Wrestler. Not only had I not noticed picking it up, I hadn’t lost any air pressure either. I pulled the pin out and spin the tyre; the sealant plugged the leak with minimal loss of air. With surefooted performance and reassuring durability, I plan to keep the Mud Wrestlers on for the duration of the wet season just to have the option riding some muddy trails if the mood strikes me.” – Mark V,, December 2014




    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.


    Tubeless Ready

    Tubeless downhill set-ups are a great way to shave some weight and spend more time in the bike park or shuttling hot laps on your local runs. Sealant-compatible rubber is used with the familiar Maxxis dual-ply 60 TPI downhill construction and butyl insert for support and rim protection in order to offer the benefits of increased grip and reliability. A Tubeless Ready bead securely locks to the rim and the foldable bead provides additional weight savings.
