Arguably the most important element of any tire is the compound. After all, a tread design is only as good
as the rubber it’s made from. That’s why Maxxis is proud to offer the best compounds in the business.
SINGLE // One compound used throughout the tread, striking a balance between performance and wear.
SUPER TACKY // A special low rebound, high traction compound ideally suited for racing and riding in wet conditions.
DUAL // Two compounds: a firm base layer to provide knob support and reduce rolling resistance combined with a softer
outer layer for improved traction in the corners.
3C TRIPLE COMPOUND // The ultimate in tire compound technology, our 3C tires use a firm, long lasting base layer with
two progressively softer top layers to optimize traction and stability. Maxxis offers three distinct configurations of our 3C
Triple Compound: Maxx Speed for XC race use, Maxx Terra for trail and all-mountain and Maxx Grip for DH and freeride
