Maxxis Shorty Gen 2 - 27.5" MTB Tire, 3C MaxxGrip


89.95 $ 105.00




After gathering years of data and feedback from our World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes, the Shorty is completely new for 2021. Compared to the original, the tread pattern of the Shorty Gen 2 was given some notable improvements. The previous “Double Wide” center tread blocks are now split into two separate knobs. At the shoulders, the cornering knobs are now more supportive and have additional siping for better braking and cornering grip. In addition, you'll notice pairs of little ridges between the knobs to improve mud shedding. The new knob layout provides improved wet traction, cornering performance, and mud shedding abilities, while the narrower 2.40" casing reduces weight and improves frame and fork clearance for when things get really sloppy.
