Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • Great downhill tyre for varying conditions on dry and wet sand to forest surfaces.
  • The tall knobs on the sides of the tyre are reinforced, giving extra support and grip when cornering.
  • DoubleDown for a two-layer 120 tpi carcass with a butyl insert. This keeps the weight down for enduro, but offers the protection of a downhill tyre.
  • Triple compound MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds for ultimate grip and shock absorption.
  • Tubeless Ready technology makes the tyres easy to tubeless with 90ml of latex sealant per tyre.
  • As the Assegai 3C MaxxGrip DD TR tyres are specifically made for downhill racing, they are on the heavy side and may be slightly more difficult to mount than more flexible tyres.
  • Tubeless sealant should generally be topped up every 3-6 months.

Description

Description

The Maxxis Assegai 3C MaxxGrip DD TR is the signature downhill mountain bike tyre of three-time world champion Greg Minnaar. Assegai stands for the type of spear used by the Zulus, an African warrior people. This tyre has been made with a single goal in mind: maximum grip for maximum confidence. The high-studded tread has been designed to maintain grip in sand and dust, and also to provide the best possible grip on wet tree roots, rocks and the like. When cornering you will find that this tyre really digs down into the surface, allowing you to lean on your bike with confidence. In short, this mountain bike tyre makes all the difference between being able to keep to the ideal racing line and ending up in a ditch.

Technology

3C MaxxGrip
The triple-compound MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds for ultimate grip and shock absorption in downhill applications.

DoubleDown
DoubleDown stands for a 120 TPI dual-ply carcass with a butyl insert. This keeps the weight down for enduro while offering the protection of a downhill tyre. Thus, you get the perfect mix of protection, stability and weight.

Tubeless Ready
The Maxxis Assegai 3C MaxxGrip DD TR tyre is ready for tubeless riding, that is, it can be used without an inner tube. This has many important advantages such as lower rolling resistance, more grip, more control and more comfort.

Works as expected.

- Wolle 7 February 2024

Great tyre. In the worst weather conditions, it doesn't show any weaknesses. Only when the mud gets deeper is it no longer its world. But still predictable and controllable.

Amazing grip from this tyre, it’s the new DHF up top!

- Paul 19 August 2022

The Assegai is a phenomenal tyre up top, amazing grip in all bar the most extreme conditions (slop and snow) used it for 3yrs in the Peaks in the U.K. and also Portugal and Spain, it just performs. The DD variant does add a bit of weight, but for the puncture protection it offers, it’s a no brainer for me.

Pros & Cons

Insane grip from this tyre.
The new DHF up top!
Two day delivery from Mantel.
Some would say it’s a bit heavy, each to their own

5 / 5

Great all round Enduro/Dh tyre

- Andy 17 July 2022

The Assagi Dd is a great all round tyre for dh and enduro! Amazing grip in lose and loamy stuff whilst still grabbing onto wet ricks and roots!
