Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high. Tubeless Ready (TR): Tubeless ready tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Dual Compound: Two compounds are used within the tread of select tyres to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.Buy Maxxis Wheels & Tyres from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
