Maxxis Griffin 27.5" DH Tire

Maxxis Griffin 27.5" DH Tire

If you’re seating Maxxis’s Griffin DH tires you better be ready to hold on tight, because these things are fast! As the surface conditions vary between downhill courses, the Maxxis Griffin features a less aggressive tread design that’s designed to pick up speed on hardpack trails. The knobs are smaller and more tightly spaced, with heavily ramped leading edges to reduce rolling resistance on tracks with lots of pedaling. Using the same durable casing Maxxis DH tires are celebrated for, the Griffin does not sacrifice resilience. Downhillers residing in dry areas will quickly learn to appreciate the Griffin!

The Super Tacky option features a special low rebound, high traction compound that perfect for cornering at high speeds.

The 3C compound option uses a harder, longer lasting base layer and two progressively softer top layers in order to optimize traction and stability.

  • Less aggressive tread design
  • 3C Maxx Grip and Super Tacky available

my new go to rear dh tire
I put this tire on the back of my v10 because the minion dhr2 i was running was a little untrustworthy feeling trying to transition from middle nobs to side nobs in losses marbly conditions. this tire makes a fantastic rear tire in combo with a minion up front. it is great for anyone who likes to be able to drift the back tire around tight turns yet the side nobs still bite surprisingly well when you put some weight into them. the tread pattern and tire profile leave no odd vague areas so it gives you full traction no matter what the lean angle your at. i have not got to ride it in wet conditions yet but for anything dry you can't go wrong. if you like the ardent it has a similar yet more stable feel from the thicker nobs which give it way better grip on hard packed.

Great and fast on my DH bike
Super fast in hard-pack corners, and no skiddy feeling in tech or choppy trails. I ran the Super tacky version which was great but the nobs will rip in real tech/rocky DH trails like Keystone, CO. However the tacky version is the best in normal tech and flow trails. I now run the 3C version tire and dropped the pressure ~1 lb and get almost as good results but longer lasting for gnarly rocky trails.

Is this tire tubeless compatible?
Numbers on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not designed to be tubeless. However, I set it up as tubeless with no problems at all. Works great in Angel Fire hardpack.
