Maximum XC Control In Wet, Sloppy Conditions

The Maxxis Forekaster 29" MTB Tire is designed for off-road performance in wet, soupy conditions. From expectedly wet winter visits to the unexpected downpour in the middle of fall, the Forekaster's evenly spaced mid-height knobs and dual-compound construction dig in for unrelenting traction. A central channel of wider knobs allow the Forekaster to shed mud or gravel easily, while the larger, bulkier shoulder blocks are designed for aggressive cornering. With a tubeless-ready construction and Maxxis' EXO protection layer, the Forekaster is ready for unrelenting rides in the most rugged terrain.

The Maxxis Forekaster 29" EXO/TR MTB Tire is available in a 2.35" width. Also available in 27.5" sizes.

Features:

  • Aggressive XC tire that's optimized for loose or wet conditions.
  • Dual Compound tubeless-ready construction.
  • EXO Protection gives added durability and protection from punctures, slashes, and cuts.
  • Available in 2.2, 2.35, or 2.6" width options
  • Claimed Weight: 735 grams.
  • 120 TPI.

Grippy on dry summer days

This was an easy install as a tubeless tire. I've only ridden it a couple of times and it's a significant improvement on the dusty summer trails in Hood River. I ended up replacing both tires because they are working for me that well.

Dependable. Easy to Mount Tubeless.

Ive had really good luck with these tires. They are easy to mount and theyve withstood lots of riding on Sandy Ridge and in Bend. Good grip on slightly loose terrain to hardpack but not great in the mud or damp trails like Alsea Falls. Used exclusively on the rear so far. I wore the tread.

Solid wet/mud performance but rather good in all conditions.

A friend recommended that I try these for wet conditions - I did and liked them quite a bit on everything from wet rocks/roots to mud and muck. Not the ultimate mud tire of course, but better than most. I ended up leaving them on and have ridden all kinds of conditions and terrain with them. They're holding up quite well even though they've been worked hard on some rocky downhills at speed. They do let loose a little bit in the lateral direction on stuff like leaves but it's fairly consistent slippage on other surfaces.

New England trails

During the late fall and winter months in New England the trails get very slippery and somewhat muddy, the Maxxis Forekaster is to date the best tire I have found for overall grip and control while keeping speed. I run them front and back and really love the set up.

I bought a set of these tires, they were the same tires on my Scott MTB when I bought it. Very happy with them so far!

Dirty Copper Triangle

Rode the Dirty Copper Triangle and was impressed by these tires. The trail was dry in spots but that was not the entire ride. Got into some muddy spots and that is were these tires really show their worth. I had consistent cornering and braking traction the entire time. Great tires from a great company.

These give me the extra grip for my hardtail to top the dirt hills in Florida. Used to spin out. Have not yet tried tubeless. Thinking about getting some for my wifes bike and my full suspension build in process.
