Greg Minaar has ridden it all, and won it all too. Three World Championship titles, 3 UCI World Cup Overall titles, and 21 World Cup wins (and counting), have all gone into Greg's signature Maxxis Assegai Tire.
A full tread pattern gives the Assegai grip where traction is scarce—wet roots, rocks, and transitioning from the center to the edge of the tire. Greg needed a tire to help him extend his smooth, controlled, cornering style to all sections of trail. He couldn't find one, so he built his own.
Tires will change the way your bike rides. Different tread patterns will perform better or worse depending on the conditions you're riding in. When it comes to the Maxxis Assegai though, it will perform exceptionally well in every condition. It has tall knobs that are designed to grip in dust and loam and also offers grip on wet roots and rocks. It features Maxxis's 3C MaxxGrip rubber compound, has a Wide Trail casing that is optimized for 30 - 35mm internal width rims, has a dual-ply downhill casing, and is tubeless ready so you can run lower tire pressures for increased traction. If you're looking for a fast tire that performs excellently in all conditions, then you'll love the Assegai.
