Perfect For Shreddin Trails, Rippin Enduro Courses, & Huckin Downhill Lines
Designed in conjunction with Australian downhill racer Troy Brosnan, the Maxxis Dissector 29" Wide Trail 3C/EXO+/TR MTB Tire seeks to minimize drag while retaining cornering control. This versatile tire can be used as a front, a pair, or as a rear depending on trail conditions.
The dissector is known around the mountain bike community as being tacky and grippy when it counts most — loose burms, washed-out corners, and techy steep climbs.
The Maxxis EXO+ construction combines two of our best puncture protection materials: SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%; and resistance to pinch flats by 28%.
Wide Trail (WT) construction optimizes the tire's tread layout and profile on today's modern, wider rims. Traditional tires are designed around older, narrower rims and can create an overly square tire profile, leading to less than optimal performance.
WT tires are optimized for a 35mm inner rim width but are proven to work over a range from 30-35mm inner rim widths, depending on the rider's preference.
This tire uses the Maxxis 3C MaxxTerra compound, which is an intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.
