Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons

  • The high studs on the tyre sidewalls are reinforced to provide extra support and grip when cornering.
  • From loose sand to wet rocks, this tyre will give you grip and confidence everywhere!
  • This tyre is tubeless ready.
  • 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.

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.

Perfect all rounder

- Alexander 10 November 2021

Exactly what you want and a whole lot more. Confidence inspiring grip in a carcass that should tolerate the abuse it's destined for. Certainly a worthy replacement for anyone who's been using the infamous DHF for the past 20 years, the main difference I'd say is the continued grip as the tyre leans, where the DHF almost skids until the corners bite in again. Would I go back to a DHF? No. Is this Tyre in high demand? Yes. So be prepared to pay full price, and cross your fingers for stock availability. Also, bear in mind for some wide rims (the i35 in my case) with inserts, the DD casing can be a bit of a struggle some times to fit. Patience is key, but once on inflate with zero issues. There's no 'sweat' from the sealant, and has held pressure for over a week so far without any adjustment. Using this in conjunction with a DHRII (also DD and MaxxGrip) which is ideal for the wetter conditions here in the UK and for a larger rider. If there's ever a sale on these tyres, be sure to grab a spare set for the upcoming season, everyone deserves a fresh set of rubber every once and a while!

Pros & Cons

5 / 5

I can't think of a better front tyre!

- Mark 18 October 2021

This tyre is replacing one of the exact same compound/construction that is a year old. It's been used a lot, yet the sidewalls are still in great condition (with no tears/damage) and there's still life left in the tread. The only reason I'm replacing it is as we roll into winter, some fresh tread would be handy for a bit more grip. I was worried the MaxxGrip compound wouldn't last long, but it's held up just fine - I paired it with a DHR II in MaxxTerra and they both wore at a fairly similar rate. Overall, it's a great tyre - aside from possibly making a slightly wider version, I can't really think of how Maxxis could improve it. Incredible grip in all but the wettest/muddiest conditions, a nice and supportive sidewall, great grip combined with remarkable durability - it's just a top quality tyre!

Pros & Cons

Durable casing
Easily set up tubeless
Incredible grip
Surprisingly long-lasting
Nothing that I can think of!
