Why We Like The Dissector Wide Trail 3C/EXO+/TR Tire

We all know that gotta-go-fast feeling, and we're always chasing it. Maxxis, thankfully, is trying to enable us on that mission. They're working with top athletes to design tires that are ideal for dry, fast trails, and they're trying to be as versatile as possible. With their Dissector Wide Trail 3C/EXO+/TR Tire, we're seeing that need for speed, combined with features catered to trail riders.

The Dissector Wide Trail Tire aims to minimize drag while still retaining cornering control. It can be used as a front, a pair, or as a rear depending on the trail conditions and your mood that day. It weighs about what you'd expect for a 29in x 2.6in Wide Trail tire at 1,049g, and it maintains a flexible 120tpi casing for smooth riding over trail obstacles. Maxxis's 3C Maxx Terra compound provides a high grip and EXO sidewall protection resists punctures from any jagged rocks on the trail.

  • Wide trail tire ideal for hardpack, medium, and loose terrain
  • Center knobs minimize drag but retain sharp, flat edges
  • EXO sidewalls provide increased puncture resistance
  • 120tpi for smooth rolling over questionable terrain
  • Can be used as a front, pair, or rear tire depending on conditions

MTB tires are a finicky thing. Grip, weight, rolling speed and durability have a complicated relationship together. Choose the wrong tires and you could be riding a heavy, sluggish bike or end up on your face. Swapping is costly and a total pain, so many of us either err on the side of grip, or just keep riding the same old Minions. I know I did, but I wasn't satisfied with how the trusty DHR's rolled. Too much resistance, too sluggish, but sooo grippy! Where is the middle ground? Right here, the Dissector. On a quest for more rolling speed without sacrificing grip, last year I swapped in a 29" exo+ 2.4 in the rear, and kept the exo+ DHR 2.4 in front. I was super impressed that the new tire gave a perceptible increase in rolling speed, but gave up nothing in all out grip. At the limit of grip, the rear didn't break away before the front, and I got zero flats with the exo+ casing. Still wanting more, I decided to take the leap and go dual-Dissector. Both 2.4, both exo+. The difference is remarkable. With the dual Dissectors, my bike felt so much faster and than the comparable DHR exo+ 2.4! And grip in the front? I would love to say that the front didn't give up any grip, but I can't. At the limit, there is just a touch more drift where the DHR would bite. That said, the Dissector offers way more grip than I was expecting. The Dissector brings increase in rolling speed and weight savings, is sturdy as I need it to be, and grips nearly as hard as the DHR. This is the Goldilocks tire. The Dissector has earned its place on the front and rear of my trail rig, and the DHRs have made their way into the spare parts box.
