Grip for Days!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Maxx Grip! you ain't joking! I picked up a set of these to run at the DH Park and some gnarly Enduro trails where pedaling isn't really isn't required. (think Shuttle) Hit the steep and loose stuff hard and fast and with the DD sidewall I needed to run a little less PSI than normal. (16 Fr / 18Rr) on a set of Reynolds TR Carbon 27.5 hoops. I was having so much fun I forgot about one of the hairpin turns on the trail till the last minute. I had to lay on the brakes super hard and the decided to throw caution to the wind and just huck it into a flat rooty turn with some loose black dirt. I can't believe how those tires just dug in and hooked around the turn. The bike was basically pancaked to the ground while the front tire dug a trench around the corner! Now with that Maxx Grip you will notice that they are a little slow to pick up speed out of the corners and if when you have to pedal up a little to hit the Gnar it will feel like you are dragging a pair of cement blocks around with you. My recommendation is if you don't need to pedal on the way down, it's fast, steep, rocky, and all out sketch, these are the tires!
