Maxxis Shorty Downhill Tyres - 26 x 2.4 Super Tacky

Today’s World Cup downhill tracks are steep, technical monsters with ever-changing conditions. Our pros need a mid-spike tyre that can handle dry, loose, blown-out corners as well as a bit of mud. The Shorty is that tyre!

A high volume, dual-ply downhill casing makes the Shorty a more versatile option. Large, tall and slightly staggered side knobs penetrate loose soil to provide predictable, stable cornering at warp speeds. The alternating pattern of the center tread features widely-spaced knobs to clear debris, and their square shape offers plenty of braking bite.

For downhill mountain biking in gnarly, mixed conditions, the Shorty can’t be beaten!
