Maxxis Assegai 29 Inch MTB Tyre
Maxxis Assegai 29 Inch MTB Tyre
Greg Minnaar’s signature tire – the Maxxis Assegai – provides tenacious, predictable grip across the entire profile no matter the lean angle.
For the dry and loose Western Australian conditions, we think this is the grippiest tyre in the Maxxis range. For ultimate traction, choose the 3C MaxxGrip compound. The Assegai can be used front and rear for a surefooted feel or as a front paired with a faster rolling rear tire.

EXO: The lightest MTB tyre casing. Choose EXO Protection for enhanced durability for gravel, XC, and light-duty trail riding.
EXO+ (EXO Plus): Medium-duty puncture protection option suitable for all-around trail riding and light weight e-bikes. With a minimal weight increase, it's essentially an EXO tyre with an extra butyl layer around the bead.
DD (Double Down): Ideal for Enduro. DoubleDown (DD) is our casing solution for enduro racing and e-bike use. Two layers of our lightweight 120 TPI casing material are combined with a butyl sidewall insert to create a highly durable tire with more trail feedback than a Downhill casing tire. DoubleDown tires are marginally lighter than their Downhill counterparts, but it’s really the difference in “trail feel” that sets the two apart. Some riders may prefer the highly damped ride provided by a Downhill casing tire.
DH (Downhill): The toughest and heaviest casing. Designed for extreme use in all gravity applications from downhill racing to bike park riding to free riding to long travel e-bikes. A Maxxis Downhill tire is made with two layers of our durable 60 TPI casing material along with a large butyl rubber insert that extends from each bead into the sidewall. The butyl insert helps prevent pinch flats, protects the rim from impacts, and provides additional sidewall stability.
Rubber Compound Technologies:
3C MaxxGrip: For ultimate grip, the 3C MaxxGrip compound uses the stickiest, slowest rebounding rubber we offer in a mountain bike tire. This high traction compound is the same one used by our top World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series athletes and is now available in a variety of casing configurations to cover all riders.
3C MaxxTerra: An intermediate, harder wearing compound used across our mountain tire line. The 3C MaxxTerra compound offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip, which makes it ideal for trail riding in all conditions.
Dual Compound: The firmest compound. Uses a firm rubber at the base of the knobs, and a slightly softer rubber on the top of both the centre and side knobs for a simple construction.
