Maxxis Shorty 26" DH 2-PLY Tire

Maxxis Shorty 26” Downhill Tire

As modern-day downhill courses push the envelope of technicality and rider talent, the equipment in which they rely upon must keep up. Maxxis pro riders did their part in maintaining the progression of tire technology to meet the demands of today’s treacherous World Cup downhill tracks by constantly supplying the Maxxis’s tire engineers with current needs to improve ride quality. Well, the pros spoke and Maxxis listened, and the Maxxis Shorty tire is the result.

The Shorty is a mid-spike tire that can take on a plethora of conditions including dry, loose, blown-out corners, and even some mud. Using Maxxis’s dual-ply DH casing, the Shorty features two layers of material that are used from bead to bead for more protection and sidewall rigidity. Hefty, tall and slightly staggered side knobs infiltrate loose soil to provide predictable, steady cornering at high speeds. The sporadic pattern of the center tread features widely-spaced knobs to clear debris, while their square shape bids enhanced braking grab. With the Maxxis Shorty touching ground, it would be hard not to be stoked with confidence the next time on the course.

excellent tire
Labled as 2.4", the tires measure just a hair over 2.2" on a spank spoon 32 hoop in the 3c model. I like smaller volume tires than most would prefer on dh bikes so this was not an issue for me. This tire was likely made to compete with the magic marry. The magic marry in the DH casing measures over 2.5" on my same rim though its labled as 2.35". I ran magic marrys in all versions from the bike park, tubeless ready, to the DH casing and have never been satisfied with them. I have also ran the kenda nexcavators off and on for the last 3 years and have had my best riding in the worst conditions on the 2.35 nexcator with rsr. That tire has a smaller casing as well, measuring 2.25 on the same hoop. To me the SHORTY is like a mix of the two. Its got the aggressive lean angle of a smaller volume tire with the high traction/fast clearing of cut spikes that ate up every off camber turn, mud hole, blown out catch berm, rutted out chute, wet rock gardens, roots, hucks to flat, hucks to rock gardens, hucks to hucks, you get it...if you think a smaller tire casing with strong sticky mid lenth spikes would suit your riding this is the tire for you.
