I see all of these options. I can't find what the "DUAL" means. Could someone help me out? Also, the column to the left of the color, I can figure out through inference what some of these acronyms are, but the others I can't. I tried to find a key on their site, but no luck. Either way, I have an e-bike. This will be a rear tire. I ride dirt and rocks. I don't ride on muddy trails, but sometimes the rocks are a little slippery from dew.

Maxxis has really good descriptions of all offerings on their site. Dual means dual compound- two kinds of rubber on the tread. Some of their tires use two or three compounds to give different grip characteristics. As for which tire to use: that’s up to you and your budget. Minions (DHF and DHR) are popular.

Good luck.

Thanks for the response. What percentage faster would you say the 3CG wears than the 3CT? What about grip - what percentage better grip would the 3CG have over the 3 CT?

Any recommendation of which one would be the best for me?

Also, for what it is worth, I run Cushcores.
