A fine beginning.
As you test your legs (and your summer training plan) out during the first hot, dusty 'cross races of the season, trust the Maxxis Speed Terrane EXO/TR Tire to keep you flying over moon dust and late-summer hardpack. With a tread pattern encrusted with micro-diamond knobs, the Speed Terrane was designed specifically to keep you accelerating on dirt that hasn't seen rain in weeks. Even if you haven't raced in months, take your first corners aggressively, knowing the Speed Terrane's offset, siped side knobs will hungrily grab onto crusty berms, and power through climbs knowing the center row of paddle knobs is working to keep you glued to the course. The start of racing season never felt so good.

Speedy with decent cornering
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great rear tire for dryer conditions. The small side lugs allow for more aggressive cornering than an all out file-tread pattern. The mini-diamond tread down the center is fast but can slip around a tad.
Wear has been relatively impressive for times when it double-duties as a commuter tire.
TL;DR Great dry weather racing tire.
