Get aggressive.

Take Maxxis' Aggressor EXO/TR Tire with you on the days you show up ready to blast through technical singletrack and take on big descents. We can't promise it'll make your lines more aggressive, but its rugged, versatile construction will make sure you don't have to hold back when you point your wheels downhill.

Designed for training more than racing, the tubeless-ready Aggressor features a durable 60 TPI casing along with Maxxis' EXO sidewall protection to ward off flats. The knobby tread design features hard edges and reinforced side knobs to grip through loose, unpredictable stretches of trail and keep you from washing out on tight corners. Take the Aggressors on smooth hardpack and they'll do just fine, but you'll really see them shine on the loosest, least consistent sections of trail.

Great rear tire

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Set this up tubeless no problem. Handles dry and dusty summer conditions with ease.

Confidence in NorthWest Corner of CT

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Put this 27.5 on my son's 2017 Trek X-Cal 9 15.5 frame.
Stock xc tire were worthless in the North-West corner of CT during the spring.
Once, he saw the more aggressive tread pattern of the Aggressor you could see his confidence grow!
He likes the better braking and climbing the tire has on the wet white-pine needles as well as overall traction through the mud.
I'll follow up with a post on the 29" because I upgraded the whole family to Aggressors.....Happily !

Ride Fast, Have Traction

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I rode a Evil Calling with this as the front and rear tire. I was a bit hesitant to have it (especially as a front tire) and am absolutely stoked on it now that I've tried it. I spent three days riding in Moab on it and rode Captain Ahab, part of the Whole Enchilada (Half Eaten Enchilada?) and Mag 7 and it excelled the entire time.

It rolls relatively fast and has decent enough of tread to provide traction and bite when the going gets rowdy. I agree with many of the reviews below that it would be a great rear tire, especially if paired with something like a Minion DHF up front. I'd love to have a side by side comparison with something like the Minion SS to see how they hold up next to each other.

Long term durability isn't something I can speak for here, but no knobs torn off or anything after ~70 miles of slickrock and desert riding. If its anything like other Maxxis tires, we should be set.

For trail/all mountain riding, this would make for a great rear tire to pair with a more aggressive front tire. If you have any other questions on it or what you should run as a front tire, feel free to give a shout to my direct line 801.204.4547 or email me at!

Ride Fast, Have Traction

put this tire on your mountain bike

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Aggressor is quickly becoming the go-to rear tire for Competitive Cyclist employees. The combination of braking / cornering traction and smooth rolling hits the sweet spot for most conditions. Take all of that and pair with Maxxis durability and you have a winner.

Rolls Fast, Grips For Days

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you're in the market for an excellent rear tire that offers tons of traction this is a great candidate. The close block design allows the tire to roll well while still finding plenty of traction in dry loose conditions. The cornering lugs hook up very well and provide excellent cornering grip. Add 3C rubber into the mix and this tire turns into one of the best rear tires I've ridden.

Really the only drawback to this tire is it doesn't clear mud well. But it also isn't designed to be a mud tire and Maxxis has the Shorty for that.

Pretty Dang Good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the rear tire on my SB6. Last bike had the Tomahawk on the back. This definitely rolls faster, but looses a but of grip. Overall, very happy with it


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Excited to toss this tire on my bike and get outside on the dirt. I had been using the Minion SS and loved it at first but just kept having issues with them getting punctures. So I am going to try this one out and see how it goes. But I am a Maxxis fan for sure. Pairing it with a High Roller
