The Mavic Crossmax Charge 29 inch Tire complements the rear specific Crossmax Roam tire perfectly, with a tread pattern focused on superb cornering and braking, and all the same casing and compound technology so that it's not just keeping up with the rapidly evolving world of tires it's literally leading the way. The Crossmax Charge Tire is the front specific sibling of Mavic's Crossmax family the rear specific being the aforementioned Roam tire. It features SCC at the tread, Guard 2 under the tread, and UST way down where bead meets rim. SCC, or Super Contact Compound, is made to provide grip that's, well, super, keeping your leading tire on the trail so you can maintain control in dry conditions, wet conditions, and all conditions in between. Guard 2 means that there's a double layer of 66 TPI casing under that SCC to help prevent flats, even at the low pressures you'll be able to run because of the UST Tubeless Ready design. Rolling tubeless means you can ditch the heavy tubes and rock a lower PSI, which makes for better handling and grip. The tire's tread graduates from short, efficient studs in the middle for efficient rolling and spot on braking to pronounced knobs on the shoulders for confident, don't have to slow down cornering. The fat 2. 4in casing further complements the plush tubeless ride quality.
