Maxxis Shorty 26" Kev 3C Exo TR Mountain Bike Tyre
The DH version of the Maxxis Shorty was an instant favorite of our World Cup DH racers. The single-ply version offers trail riders the same traction in a much lighter package. All trail versions of the Shorty feature our Tubeless Ready casing and 3C MaxxTerra compound. EXO sidewall protection is available as an option for each size.

3C Maxx Terra: An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres. 3C Maxx Terra is softer and offers more traction than 3C Maxx Speed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than Maxx Grip.
Tubeless Ready: Tubeless 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. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tyres provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tyre without the weight penalty. Our TR tyres use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight
EXO: An extremely cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of select mountain tyres. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky, treacherous trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.
Sam I've just switched to these from High Rollers for winter and tried them out in the mud. There is noticeably more grip from the centre knobs on the Shortys than on the HRs in the wet and mud. My local soil is greasy clay and these give a nice confidence boost when it's slippy slidey. They're possibly a bit more draggy on the fire roads, but I'm not looking to break any speed records in winter. Overall, initial impressions are good and I'm happy with my purchase. Also, great price and super quick delivery to NZ, thank you!
Mr ten Hove Verry good tire for the wet seated well and very grippy.
Mr Buick This is the tyre I go to every winter. Used to just run minions but this made riding in winter a whole lot more enjoyable.
