    3C MaxxGrip

    Maxxis’ 3C MaxxGrip compound uses the stickiest, slowest rebounding rubber we offer in a mountain bike tire. This high traction compound is the same one used by our top World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes and is now available in a variety of casing configurations to cover all riders.

    • 3C MaxxGrip + EXO casing = Light duty trail riding in wet/slick conditions
    • 3C MaxxGrip + EXO+ casing = All-around trail riding in wet/slick conditions
    • 3C MaxxGrip + DoubleDown casing = Enduro racing and e-bikes
    • 3C MaxxGrip + Downhill casing = Downhill racing and long travel e-bikes

    Tubeless Ready

    Tubeless ready 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 because there is no tube. Tubeless ready tires are denoted by the letters “TR” on the sidewall.
    Tubeless ready tires must be mounted to tubeless compatible rims and require the use of a liquid sealant to maintain pressure. Liquid sealants have the added benefit of sealing small punctures. Be sure to check your sealant regularly and refresh as needed as it will dry out over time.
    Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires: tubeless road, tubular, and tubeless ready. The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tire will void the warranty.
