Maxxis Forekaster Tire - Review

Maxxis Forekaster 29 x 2.35


Maxxis has been cranking out fresh tire designs in earnest, and the Forekaster is a relatively new addition to the range. Billed as an aggressive cross-country tire, it competes with the likes of Schwalbe's Nobby Nic in both performance and appearance, with a rounded crown and staggered rows of small, sharp-edged, widely spaced tread blocks. The Forekaster is intended for wet or loose conditions, and the tread design plays well with wide rims in the neighborhood of 30 millimeters (inside measurement).

Forekasters are tubeless ready and are offered in a variety of options - sizes from 27.5 x 2.2, through 2.6 inches - and 29-inch from 2.2 through 2.35-inches, with the more pricey tires featuring their EXO reinforced sidewall protection layer. The tread is dual-density: harder on top to ensure a fast-rolling, long-wearing center tread and softer on the sides for grippy cornering blocks. The Forekaster 29 x 2.35-inch EXO model we review here is priced at $68.90 USD, and came in plus or minus 4 grams of the claimed 735-gram weight.


Details and Specifications:

• Use: Aggressive XC, loose or wet conditions
• Construction: Single-ply 120 TPi casing, EXO sidewall protection, tubeless Ready
• Size: 29 x 2.35"/ 60-622 ETRTO
• Tread: Dual-compound rubber, directional.
• Wide Trail casing: optimized for 30-35mm inner-width rims
• Weight: (claimed) 735g
• MSRP: $68.90 USD
• Contact: Maxxis

Sharp-edged tread blocks and creative siping help the Forekaster find grip in both high and low-pressure situations.

Riding Impression

Summer most often means loose and dusty, and that was why I was interested in the Forekaster's tread design. I ran them on both ends of the bike, and on 30-millimeter-width rims. The actual width measured exactly 2.3 inches at 28 psi (nice work Maxxis). Mounting them up tubeless to DT Swiss aluminum rims was not seamless. They needed two blasts from my Topeak reservoir floor pump to seat up. Once inflated, however, the Forekasters sealed up instantly and did not need to be topped off.

Straight-line performance over hard surfaces is quite good, with minimal noise and very little rolling resistance. Mounted to 30-millimeter rims, there was no way that the Forekasters would tuck under hard, out-of-the-saddle pedaling, and the same was true for their cornering stability - rock solid. I attribute the tire's lateral stability to the wider rims, but Maxxis is well aware of that, which is an apt lead-in to the topic of grip.

Other than a handful of boulder-strewn stream crossings, I cannot comment upon the Forekaster's wet weather performance beyond the fact that they hooked up well enough to breeze trough the wet granite without a sense that someone had greased my tires. Nice enough, but what I was hoping for was a faster rolling design than the Maxxis Minion and High Roller II, or Schwalbe's Magic Mary - the tires that rule Southern California's sketchy dust and hard-pack gravel. In those situations, I am pleased to say that the Forekaster can be relied upon to find grip in loose dust or up steep rock faces, and its pointy tread can find enough purchase in gravel or shale to corner and climb without much concern for unplanned drifts or momentum killing wheel-spin.

Like its unrelated brother, the Schwalbe Nobby Nic, however, the Maxxis Forekaster has some boundaries which cannot be crossed without consequence. The rounded tread fumbles down crumbly off-camber sections that a flatter tread profile like the High Roller's can easily carve a line across, and when climbing up and around tight switchbacks, the front tire tends to skip and push unless care is taken to weight the front end. Reducing the tire pressure to the low 20's helped,
Maxxis Forekaster 29 x 2.35
Most cross-country trail riders prefer a rounded tread profile like the Forekaster's. Its edging blocks are plentifully large, however, and it corners with authority in most situations.
but not to the degree that switching to a flatter tread profile would. Another thing to remember is that the Forekaster's cornering grip feels bombproof over dry and loose soil as long as you are putting pressure on the tread. Take that pressure off - try to float around a turn - and they may break into a drift. Same goes for rear braking - it's easy to lock up the rear end if you don't stay light on the lever. All aspects tallied, though, and the Forekaster emerges as a winner as an XC/trail tire, especially for good bike-handlers in search of KOM's.


Pinkbike's Take:

bigquotesGive the Maxxis Forekaster a try if you are searching for a good all-around tire for fast-paced, technical trail riding. It's trustworthy when it lets loose, and I found it to be grippier in the turns than its closest competitor, lightweight, tough, and it rolls faster than its edgy tread pattern would suggest.RC

 Over the past few years, when new tyres come out, the press releases state 27.5 and 29 only. It was the same when the Minion SS came out; no 26 option, and then, a few months later, the 26 versions are all available.

No drama. Thanks Maxxis. We'll have the option of these too at some point I'm sure.

 Glad to see a positive review on these tires. Some of my favorite tires at the moment. I have mine (29 x 2.35) on 24mm rims. However, I took a quick look at Maxxis's website and it appears that the 27.5 x 2.6 is the only one that is listed as a WT tire.

 So how round is the profile on a 24 mm rim? That's what I have...the article made it sound like they might be too round on a narrower rim.
  • + 1
 @pslide: It is a perfect shape on a 24mm rim. I've read on a forum somewhere that the 2.35 was designed to work on a narrower rim since it is an "aggressive XC tire." I believe this was posted by a Maxxis employee. The 27.5 x 2.6 is the one designed to be on a wider rim.

 I ran these front and rear for about 500 miles in the southeastern US and they worked very well during fall/winter and early spring.

Once conditions began getting really dry and loose the front would slide with aggressive cornering. By that time my rear was nearly dead anyway, so i moved the front to the rear and put an Aggressor on the front which has been a great combo.

the wide open areas between knobs have been prone to punctures, but nothing my sealant hasn't taken care of
  • + 1
 I ride this tire on the front (2.6 version) and love it. Once I wear out the Nobby Nic in the rear I'm going with this one on the back as well. The 27.5 x 2.6 came in at around 780 gr on my scale. We'll see how it holds up on the rear in my terrain here in the Sierras. For the front though I'm loving it.
  • + 5
 Looks like the leading contender for the Honzo I'm looking to build up.
  • + 3
 I used 2.35 forekasters on a SS Honzo for a season and was very pleased.

I find I can push the bike harder into corners and technical sections when running a HR2 3C (front) and 2.4 Ardent DC (rear) combo... but the forekaster wins out in terms of weight and rolling resistance. Also climbing traction from the rear tire was good, which is crucial on a SS hardtail.
  • + 0
 @vaedwards: I've got a great 29er enduro bike that absolutely rips on the ups and downs... to justify having a hard tail it needs to be wicked fast on the climbs.
  • + 1
 I just bought one of these. It's literally sitting in my car at the moment. This better be a positive review! I'll be switching from a DHF2.5, and I don't think I'll be giving up anything really with our current conditions and my local trails (Grand Junction, mostly Lunch Loops, but Fruita too), but I'll be dropping 278g just off the front, so I expect the handling to get a lot more nimble, and the suspension to be a little more reactive. I recently switched from my XC setup (Ikon/Treadlite) after a few races this season, and the bike felt like a pig switching back to the DHF/SS combo. It was about a 1.5lb increase in rotating weight.

I'll post back after I get a ride in on the Forekaster tomorrow. I'll be putting an Ardent Race 2.35 on the rear, so losing about 3/4 lb total. I've used an AR before, so I know already know it has more than enough traction and predictable enough release for our conditions. The wildcard will be the ForeKaster.
  • + 1
 Now there's a combo I would like to see--the Forekaster up front, Ardent Race out back. I wasn't a fan of the original Ardent for anything here, but the Ardent Race looks improved.
  • + 2
 @mikealive: I agree that this is a good sounding combo. I currently am running Forekasters front and rear to cope with the constant flipping between lose sandy conditions and wet trails. When the trail conditions get better, I want to put an ardent race on the rear.
  • + 2
 @mikealive: I took an ardent race off the rear of mine and put a forekaster on. I won't be going back to the ardent race that's for sure. The forekaster isn't noticeably slower rolling but is a lot better grip on everything I've hit so far. I've got a 2.3 butcher on the front and that combo is pretty good for 'Aggressive XC' Smile

 @neologisticzand: is that gator in your profile pic a pet?
  • + 1
 @Gregdogg: that's good to know. When I swapped from pure XC tires (2.3 fast traks) it added about 80 grams to my bike that I honestly never noticed. I've been extremely pleased with how the forekasters roll. Surprisingly fast and the increased levels of grip allow me to put power down and be more aggressive in spots I couldn't do so before. In the end, I'm probably faster overall on anything that isn't straight, boring flats.

 On a hard tail XC rig, I've been running the 27.5 x 2.35 EXO in the front with an Ardent Race 2.20 3C in the back on stock i19mm rims (not tubeless).
The tire is great on muddy, soft, leafy and mixed terrain, lots of control, very light to get rolling and hopping though a bit of roll-over due to my narrow rim.
Con: wet/muddy angled rock slabs, those big knobs don't give much purchase.

I'll probably install an Ardent in the front to deal with summer conditions in Quebec.

 Exo works well for me on the front, and the new DoubleDown casing on the rear... it's the bees knees!
  • + 2
 How much PSI are you running versus these guys who are running the exo casing?
  • + 1
 I switched tire manufacturers because of the EXO casing and 30mm wide rims. Couldn't hardly finish a ride without a cut sidewall.
  • + 7
 I ride in CO and use EXO casings front and rear for the past few seasons, no problems with longevity. Usually running DHR2 in the front (sometimes DHF) with a variety of Maxxis in the rear. Tried Forecaster on the rear, was pretty good. Lightweight for sure, rolled OK. Not as fast as Minion SS, but better braking traction. Also tried Tomahawk, that was just eh, low center knobs rolled fast but braking and drive traction seemed low and side knobs were a bit on/off feeling when edging. Best so far on the back is the Aggressor. Might try the DD casing on the back just for the support next time and run a bit less PSI. Either way Maxxis seems to be the tire brand of choice out here.
  • + 2
 @chillrider199: well I typically don't ask people what pressure they are running out on trails but I typically have around 30 psi in tubeless otherwise I roll the tire too much

@therage43 I should clarify this is mostly my issue in the rear, where I have also torn a double down in the first month of having it.
  • + 5
 @andnyleswillriot: Some people ride hard, and might have some rocks on the trail. I have had nothing but trouble with EXO casings myself, Michelin reinforced and Continental apex seems to hold up though. Mostly slate where I ride, and it shreds tires very fast if you push hard.

 @PAmtbiker: what trails are you riding that tire combo on... i cant imagine apex and chimney are very nice to your tires
  • + 3
 @adrennan: Even worse, most of White Ranch. I've had issues with the Exo sidewalls as well. My Aggressor lasted all of 5 rides before getting cut up at Hall. Trying out the new Michelin's this go around. Have heard really good things about their casings. Just not completely sure about the tread, but TBD. Wild AM up front and Wild Grip'R in the back.
  • + 1
 I love Maxxis tires for exactly 7 rides before they are nearly worn (especially the rear). I've tried the latest WT DHF and DHR 2's with the same result.

To be fair, I am a heavier rider (190lbs kitted up) but they get trashed very quickly when compared to my current choice, WTB. I'm running a 27.5 Breakout TCS tough fast 2.5 in the rear and the new Convict 27.5 tcs light high grip in the front. They have been a lot more durable, grip very well and able to withstand countless blows to the sidewalls. Not perfect but the best I've been able to find for our rocky terrain.
  • - 3
 @Losvar: I ride plenty hard (not trying to toot my own horn, just stating) and ride trails above 12k feet in treeline areas with shale and other jagged rocks almost every day. You're either running a bad pressure or don't have your suspension set up right for where you ride. Once again, ride smoother and find the tranny lines.
  • + 1
 @chachmonkey: Only have a few rides on Aggressor and so far it does not feel like it's slowing me down much. I know Forekaster was lighter, but required a bit more PSI to keep it from feeling vague when loaded up which might have put it on the back foot it in certain situations. Grip I'd give to Aggressor as well, but not by a huge margin. No real wet rides on it either as rain stopped falling here in CO about six weeks ago. Aggressor just feels a bit more confident, and that's what makes me go faster when it counts. Wink
  • + 1
 @bicycle019: worth checking out the griffin as well. i like it more than the aggressor
  • + 2
 @PAmtbiker: I'm formerly from PA and out in CO now too. Agree the 2.2 Ikon EXOs work well here most of the year. After six weeks without rain the dust is getting deep enough now that they can be overwhelmed a bit. Switching to a 29x2.35 Forekaster tonight. I was running a DHF 2.5 the past two weeks, but it's more grip than I need, and heavy as hell. Makes the bike handle like a pig. The Ikons had been great all through March, April, May.
  • + 4
 @TucsonDon: what are you riding that a 2.2 ikon is enough? green mountain? i cant imagine that tire has enough bite for the rowdier descents
  • + 1
 @adrennan: Mostly Lunch Loops, and some rowdier XC, not DH. Used them for the Whiskey, the Grand Junction Off-Road, the Gunnison Growler and the Ridgway RAT Race. Ridgway and the Whiskey are the most traditionally XC. I haven't ridden the Front Range trails so I can't reference any of them. They work well for Fruita and Kokopelli of course. I think I picked up a 2nd(Strava) on a big section of the Navajo Rocks loop in Moab on them, but that's XC-ish. They wouldn't be my choice for Mag 7 or Whole Enchilada. Traction would be fine for Mag 7, it's mostly slickrock, but I wouldn't trust them to hold up to the pounding. Then again, they survived ButterKnife and Gunny Loop during the Grand Junction Off-Road. I would use them for the whole Bailey Hundo course as well. They're weaker when it gets to bigger loose stuff, and that decomposed granite sort of kitty litter on rock sort of stuff, also when the dust just gets too deep. Just rained out here though, so all the trails should be primo again for another week.
  • + 1
 @TucsonDon: that makes sense. here i am picturing an ikon going down free lunch and getting destroyed in the first quarter mile of trail. gunny loop is built in such a way where you never really have to push for bite out of your tire. i could picture it being awesome at 18 road where the dirt is basically a dirt jump track.

 hmmm... seems like a lot of overlap with the Aggressor. Maybe it slots in between the Aggressor and Minion SS for looser conditions? With the wet wet wet spring and summer we're having on the East Coast, my Aggressor is packing up a fair bit with mud, while my Minion SS sits unused. I see this as a good wet condition rear tire to accompany a DHRII or DHF on the front. I'd hit it. Now they just need to make it in 26" DD...
  • + 5
 I think it's moreso seen as an option between a DHF/HR2 and an Ikon. Aggressor and Minion SS I consider more DH/Enduro oriented tires, whereas this would still be considered a more XC oriented tire. Before, if you needed something more than an Ikon in the front, it was pretty much jump all the way up to a DHF (because, let's face it, Ardents sort of suck for a front). I would take Aggressor over SS only in conditions where I needed more braking traction, really steep, or really loose. Otherwise, the SS corners pretty competently. I don't think I'd slot this between them. I expect to see these more on the front, with an Ikon or AR on the rear, those these would probably give better climbing traction than both of those if it's really loose.

 If you saw this tire in person you would realize it looks nothing like a Nobby Nic. I run this one up front and a Nic in the back and they aren't even close in appearance. Completely different.
  • + 1
 I've run both, and I think the Forekaster hooks up a little better in corners. I just like the Maxxis 3C compound better... and I prefer EXO over Snakeskin. I haven't used any of the new Addix compounds yet, however.
  • + 1
 @Lotusoperandi: Yeah these are way different. The spacing is where the similarities end.
  • + 2
 I've ridden both extensively and like both. The Forekaster is one of the most underrated tires out there. For more aggresive riding on an xc/trail bike it's a great front tire choice.
The Maxxis gets the nod for durability over the Nic, in longevity and in sidewall tear resistance. The Nic is slightly more voluminous. Rolling resistance feels similar on both.
In the 29x2.35 a 30mm id is the widest rim on which I'd use the Forekaster. If they come out with a 2.5 WT, it'll be game over for all other options for trail riding.
