Taiwanese company Maxxis has been manufacturing bicycle tyres since 1967 and is one of the largest tyre companies in the world today. Their expertise in making tyres for many different cycling disciplines means they have the technology, experience and facilities to produce some of the best bicycle tyres available. Their range of mountain bike tyres is staggering with a tyre to suit any sub-discipline, terrain or riding condition. The use of different rubber compounds on the same tread pattern increases the chance to customise tyres to your riding style and the terrain conditions. This has made them a firm favourite with more aggressive riders as the softer compounds offer more grip even in the most demanding situations.
