A Versatile Mid-Spike Tire for Dust, Loam, and Mud
After gathering years of data and feedback from their World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes, the Maxxis Shorty is completely redesigned for 2021.
The knob layout has been altered to improve wet traction, cornering performance, and mud shedding abilities. The narrower 2.40 inch casing improves frame and fork clearance for when things get really sloppy and reduces weight.

Exceeded my expectations
Been aware of this tire for years as I'm die hard WC DH fan. Never really felt the need for full wet/mud tires as nor cal has been in and out of drought for the past decade and I don't love mud when we do get rain. This year with the ebike I am riding a ton and we've had tons of rain so perfect need/opportunity to try a real mud tire without going full Wet Scream or Dirty Dan. The shorty delivers. Max grip, avoids packing up, tons of cornering and breaking confidence in the wet loose slick mud.
10/10 will buy again.
