Maxxis Limited Edition Taiaha to Be Released at Crankworx Rotorua 2019
@Naturel: we're based in Atlanta, and can tell you firsthand it is NOT prime riding season here. It's been an incredibly wet winter and our trails are squishier than a Super Tacky Shorty left in the sun. We're hoping to have stock by late spring.

We should have them for the prime riding season in the US. Some distributors have DoubleDown versions in stock now.

Pinkbike Awards: Component of the Year Nominees
So Loris winning Vallnord on the Assegai wasn't a good result? Vali Holl was also pretty successful on it this season. ;)

Winner Announced: R-Dog's Bontrager Tire Giveaway
@celstark: thanks for the comment. Getting into rolling resistance is opening up a whole other can of worms. There are so many things that can affect rolling resistance, it's really more about picking the right compound for your needs. As for the rolling efficiency (NOT resistance) graphic we use in the catalog, those are based off the tread design itself and not the compound. Obviously, XC-oriented tread patterns with smaller knobs - like the Ikon - will get higher marks for rolling efficiency than the beefy-knobbed Minion DHF. It's an admittedly arbitrary system and it is best to use it to compare Maxxis tires within the same category (e.g. Ikon vs. Crossmark vs. Ardent Race; Minion DHR vs. DHR II vs. HR II, etc.). As for compounds, GENERALLY speaking, single compound tires (apart from Super Tacky) will have the longest tread wear and roll faster. Dual compound tires are in the middle and then you have our 3C tires either MaxxSpeed, Terra, or Grip. As you move from Speed to Grip, the rubber gets softer, traction increases, but tread wear decreases. Again, what rolls fastest on a drum in a lab isn't necessarily what will be fastest out on the trail. Hope that helps!

Yes! There's no difference in the casing construction other than the bead material.
