Maxxis and downhill stars Troy Brosnan are adding to the thrill of the year Crankworx Whistler by launching the Dissector, his new signature tire, at the festival.
Integrating all the features that he believes are in an ideal tire for dry, loose conditions, the Dissector is the product of collaboration between Brosnan and Maxxis’ engineers. Beginning in early 2018, the group worked on finding the right balance of rolling speed, cornering traction, and braking traction for the Dissector.
The center knobs are ramped to let riders fly downhill, with sharp, flat, rear edges providing strong braking traction. Small sipes provide additional flexion for braking, and also a seamless transition from center to side knobs. An alternating pattern of C-shaped knobs along the edges allows precise line choice while clearing debris.
Initially, the Dissector will be available in the following specs:
- – 27.5 x 2.40 3C MaxxTerra EXO (trail)
- – 29 x 2.40 3C MaxxTerra EXO (trail)
- – 27.5 x 2.40 3C MaxxGrip DH (downhill / park)
- – 29 x 2.40 3C MaxxGrip DH (downhill / park)
All specs feature our Wide Trail (best paired with 30-35mm wide rims) tubeless-ready casings.
For downhill racing or bike park riding, we recommend the Dissector as a rear tire, such as the Minion DHF or Assegai. For trails, the Dissector is more versatile, working equally well in the front, rear or as a pair.
Available in select markets beginning August 9, 2019.
