Be aggressive.

Get ready to shred singletrack and bomb gnarly descents with the Maxxis Aggressor EXO/TR Tire - 29in. We can't promise it'll make you a better rider, but its rugged, versatile construction grips hard so you can focus on the line instead of scrubbing so much speed.

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.

  • A rugged 29er tire for that shines in loose conditions
  • Dual compound with rugged tread pattern
  • EXO sidewall protection increases durability

so far so awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

running this tire (2.3) in the back combo-ed with a DHF wide trail in the front. awesome combination for an enduro- trail bike set up. rolls plenty fast and hooks up so well cornering.

Confidence for Spring in NW Conn.

After pouring over reviews for weeks..... Just outfitted wife's 2017 Trek Superfly 6 18.5" frame &
my 2013 Trek X-Caliber 19" frame with the 29x2.3 Maxxis Aggressor tires.....Front & Back!
As well as son's Trek X-Cal 9 in the 27.5 model front & back.(review made for that tire size with same attributes below)
We all love these tires for many reasons.
I got back into MTB a few yrs ago after "leaving the sport" in the mid 1990's. Last saw a Dart upfront/smoke in the rear.
Liked the confidence the front gave me, back in the day.
However, I didn't want to go to big/heavy and was afraid if a 2.4 would fit / sling mud on the bikes.
So I looked at reviews and went with the Aggressors which fit and slung mud wonderfully!!!(There is enough room on these frames to happily allow these tires to move freely while "gummed-up".........which all tires will do at some-point when at very slow speeds) Once up to speed, they shed it fine. I haven't ridden tires "Made-for-Mud", but these instill confidence in the muck and slippery white pine needles we get in the Hills of Connecticut during the wet Spring.
It was a great climbing tire in all conditions as well as hammering downhill through the corners! While I didn't drag a knee on a hard turn going into a professionally built berm...I certainly felt confident yet again as the tire transitioned on to the side nobs which have more than enough grip on an XC bike.
They also handled well on sand, leaves & singletrack dirt during a few rides I snuck in on "dry days".
The picture depicts some "micro-tread" on the carcass of the tire which was more evident once on the bike.........another perk!......giving me more traction even where I've never had it in the past.
Wife was also pleased that they weren't too "soft or slow to roll" on the pavement". Of course they weren't anything like the Stock fast-rolling Bontrager XR1. But then again, that tire was garbage on the trails where we ride. :-( no surprise.
All in all, very happy with the Tubeless setup we are running using Stan's tape/sealant on Stock Bontrager Mustang wheels.

Amazing Rear Tire

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Much Much faster than the DHR II and far more braking traction when things get loose mid season than the Minion SS, the Aggressor is the sweet spot. Reach for the Double Down Casing if you ride nasty sharp rocks all day (Moab, South Mountain in Phoenix) but if you don't blow through tires due to sidewall tears, then these non Double Down casings are for you. Not too heavy for trail riding. The perfect rear tire for your 120mm + Trail bikes. Not ideal for a front though, if you wanted something faster and lighter I would look to the Ardent.
