Dan Bewrote a review of Maxxis Shorty EXO TR Tire - 27.5in on November 21, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Do you find yourself wanting more grip from your tires? Buy this tire and never worry about what conditions you may encounter.
I found myself in need of a new front tire after my Magic Mary bubbled all over. Since that tire had been so good to me I was about to get another one. However, I noticed the Shorty and figured why not give it a try. After all I have loved tires I have ridden in the past from Maxxis.
This tire has large aggressive lugs, yet still rolls quick considering how knobby it is. Loose over hard? No problem. Sand? No problem. Hardpack? Still grips. Gravel or Mud? No problem. This tires likes it all.
The large side lugs offer tons of cornering grip, while the large center lugs aid with braking. This tire also self cleans very well.
Bottom line: if you are after a tire that grips no matter the conditions you may encounter this one won't let you down.
