With a fast rolling center and aggressive side lugs, the Maxxis Tomahawk 27.5" tire does more than just hold its own in All-Mountain/Enduro riding and was designed to excel in all conditions. The low€“profile center makes it a fast roller on hard packed soil, while the open knob spacing allows it to clear out mud to keep it running smoothly. The side knobs feature a square profile that sets you up for fast and confident cornering on descents. This is the tire that does it all€¦ well, except cook you a mean breakfast burrito in the morning before the ride. You'll have to do that yourself.
Neither fish nor fowl, this tire lacks the cornering and traction of a knobbier tire like a Minion or a Vigilante, yet also doesn't roll as fast as a Minion SS or Riddler (or corner as well as either of those models).
Also, the wear is alarming, even for a soft rubber tire. These won't last 20 rides for me.
The only positive-the DD casing is solid. Maxxis DD and WTB Enduro casing tires (2x60 ply) are a little heavy, but totally reliable.
If you want a fast rolling rear tire that can actually go around corners, get a Minion SS or WTB Riddler. If you want traction, get a Highroller, Minion, or Vigilante.
Want to give this 5 stars for the corning, rolling speed, and confidence this new tire from Maxxis brings as a rear tire, however, it is wearing at a speed that I've not experience before with Maxxis. I ride 2 times weekly roughly 8-10 miles per ride and will have to replace in 4 months. Where my DHR 2 is still looking strong. Therefore, cost to ROI is not there for this tire.
