Since it was originally designed to tackle the muckiest downhill courses with ease, the Maxxis Shorty didn't surprise anyone when it earned its place as a favorite on the downhill circuit. Now available in a trail option, the 27. 5in Maxxis Shorty EXO TR Tire provides mid depth spikes to dig in on loose, muddy, or just downright soaked trail adventures. This tire's foldable bead is tubeless ready to rock on your favorite wheels, featuring 60 TPI casing and the 3C Maxx Terra compound for pliable durability and grip. These tires will hook up and rail corners in loose conditions to power towards the line. As an added bonus, EXO sidewall protection fends off pesky rocks and trail obstacles to prevent ride ending tire tears.
