You're no meteorologist, and when you decide it's time to ride, you're not scanning any radars before you go throwing on your baggies and packing whatever food you can scrounge up is about the extent of preparation you do before you and your bike hit the singletrack. If this strategy often finds you navigating slick, unpredictable trail conditions under angry skies, you could make things much easier on yourself with Maxxis' Forekaster EXOTR 29in Tire. Designed with mid height tread blocks spaced evenly throughout the dual compound rubber tire, the Forekaster features a tubeless ready construction and the added reassurance of Maxxis' EXO protection. Confidently able to blast through loose gravel, sloppy mud, and changing trail conditions with a center channel of wider, cupped knobs complementing the allover blocks, the tire was created specifically with XC in mind. Though its billed as a late season star, we wouldn't hesitate to wrap our rims in the Forekaster in rainy, wet locales all season long for casual weekend rides and on rainy race days alike.
