Description

The Maxxis Maxxlite mountain bike tyres are the lightest ever made by Maxxis. At just 345 grams, these can truly be considered featherweights. The combination of the DUAL compound and ONE70 carcass makes this a true racing tyre. The Silkworm technology provides some much-needed protection from punctures.

Detailed product description

Silkworm
Silkworm Technology is an exclusive material incorporated into the casing of select models, increasing puncture and tear resistance. Silkworm is featured under the tread as a breaker.

DUAL
The use of 2 different compounds. The centre has a lower rolling resistance because of this, while the outside lugs offer optimal traction in corners.

ONE70
A TPI count of 170 makes for a really supple tyre with low rolling resistance and weight.
