    Torch Tyre Tests

    Ride UK BMX
    “Maxxis tyres have been the choice for the entire BMX Talk race team throughout the 2017 season and they have worked great. The team chose the Torch model (which was a hard decision, as the DTH is also a superb choice) for both design and the sizes available and haven’t looked back since.” – RideUKBMX.com, December 2017

    BMX Ultra
    Over the past few months, I’ve put in hundreds of kilometers riding on the road, and tracks with a variety of surfaces. From coarse and loose surface of pump tracks, to red clay corners at the local dirt jumps to high-speed tar and concrete corners at the race track the Torch tires are faultless… I’d be quite happy to fork over my hard-earned money to run the Maxxis Torch.” – Shane Jenkins, BMXUltra.com, April 2019

    SilkShield

    Maxxis SilkShield is an exclusive protective material which offers protection from bead to bead, whereas Silkworm is found only under the tread. Both increase puncture and tear resistance without adding much weight.

    Silkshield

    Silkworm

    Silkworm is an exclusive material incorporated into the casing of select models, increasing puncture and tear resistance. Silkworm is featured under the tread as a breaker.
