Why We Like The Dissector Wide Trail Dual Compound EXO/TR Tire

Designed in collaboration with pro rider Troy Brosnan, the Maxxis Dissector Wide Trail Dual Compound EXO/TR Tire delivers uncompromising control on fast and dry terrain. The rugged central lug pattern reduces rolling resistance on straightaways, and the side knobs are designed in similar fashion to the Assegai sibling, improving grip as you corner at high speeds. To keep your tires from going flat, EXO and Dual ply compound work in tandem, defending against sidewall tears over rocky terrain.

Great All-Round Trail Bike Tire

I've put it through the wringer

This has become my favorite all-round trail tire for dry, moderately loose and rocky trail conditons here in the Midwest (OK, AR, CO, NM). I'm a 50+ yr old trail rider who loves technical old-school hand-cut singletrack. I had previously run Vittorias for a few years (Mazzas and Motas most recently) that worked pretty well, but I was really impressed with the 2.4 Dissector. My '21 Tallboy came stock with a 2.4 Dissector up front and a 2.4 Recon in the rear. The Dissector is a great "middle-ground" trail tire that offers excellent grip for its moderate weight and low rolling resistance. Perfect for most of the conditions/trails I ride. The Recon was decent in the rear initially, but not grippy enough for loose, steep, climbs. I replaced it with the 2.4 Dissector (a much gripper tire), and really didn't notice any additional rolling resistance. Now my Tallboy has a 2.6 Dissector up front and a 2.4 in the rear. The 2.6 is probably overkill for most of the riding I do in OK, but it saved my bacon multiple times when riding deep sand here locally and on faster, more enduro-y terrain in AR and CO. Not much of a weight or rolling resistance penalty for running that much beef up front. Highly recommended!

Best Under-rated All Mountain Tires

I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding Maxxis for several years, and I have a lot of experience with the Minion DHR and Minion DHR II. I felt like the DHR II was sucking the life out of my ride, and I didn't like the weight of the Minions. But I didn't want to sacrifice downhill traction - especially up front. Then I discovered the Dissector. What a pleasant surprise!! The Dissector is about 8 ounces lighter than a Minion; that's about 1 lb lighter for two tires. Everything about the Dissector seems better without sacrificing traction in cornering. The first difference I noticed was how fast they roll compared to Minions. Combine that with a weight savings and I'm hooked. Troy Brosnan designed the Dissector after the Minion DHF, but with a faster rolling center. It was originally sold as a rear downhill tire, but Troy Brosnan won a world cup running it on front and rear. So do I. People gonna do what they gonna do, but remember that I said to try out the Dissector.
