Maxxis Ignitor Tire

Designed for professional racers, the Ignitor has already claimed several World Cup victories. Well-spaced tread pattern provides low rolling resistance on the straights, ramped pentagon knobs at the outside edge provide excellent traction in the corners and in soil.

A good choice for riders with an eye on weight who need a bit more grip than some popular minimally-treaded hardpack tires provide. Both sizes have folding beads for weight savings and lightweight single-ply casings. The tread rolls well and grips on hardpack, medium soil, and loose-over-hardpack terrain.

  • Tire Type: Clincher
  • Tire Bead: Folding
  • ETRTO: 26X2.35 ( 52-559 ), 29X2.10 ( 52/52-622 )
  • TPI: 60
  • PSI: 35 - 65
  • Weight: 690-695g

      I use maxxis tire for about one year and a half, in my all mountain rides. I like big tires.
      Excellent traction, deep knobs, fast rolling, very good perfomance in wet or dry conditions (I've used in mud roads).
      No cons by the moment.

      I used the Ignitor on my front wheel. I ride the Los Angeles area foothills and Big Bear Lake's mountains. This tire was phenomenal when it came to traction! Unfortunately, my love for this tire was about the same length as most of my college romances. A couple of months and about 500 miles into the relationship, the side wall got cut while on a ride. It rendered the tire completely useless. If Maxxis were to reinforce the sidewalls with kevlar, I'd never stray. So until then, I'll have to keep looking for my dream tire.

        Comments about Maxxis Ignitor Tire:

        I bought this tire on the recommendation of several friends and am running it on the rear on a FS with a Hutchinson Cougar 2.35 on the front. This Maxxis makes the bike noticeable faster vs. the previous rear Cougar and it still corners very well with excellent traction.

        I paid the LBS to do a tubeless conversion. They said the Hutchinson front popped right in but the Maxxis gave them fits and then leaked down a couple times before eventually sealing after I picked up the bike and took it on a trail ride.

          I have only used these tires on my local trails in Southern Ca, they are fast rolling, grip great on hard pack and loose conditions, never wash out, they also last forever. my only problem with them is they do not make a 27.5 size yet.

            Comments about Maxxis Ignitor Tire:

            I am an ageing dirt monkey and ride mostly intermediate XC (dry, loose, rocky, pick three) trails around Phoenix AZ. I ride a Giant Anthem 29er FS. The Maxis Cross mark tires that came on the bike did not seem to work well in this terrain and I ripped the front one up in short order. I replaced it with the Ignitor and have been very happy with the change. The tire works much better in loose over hardpack and sand and so far appears to be more durable. So I replaced the rear tire with an Ignitor also, and even with the more aggressive tread and a little extra weight, It did not seem to affect my riding style or speed, although I do not race.

                I use this tire on the front of a rigid 29er singlespeed. It has good air volume and grips well. Had some sticker shock, but hopefully it will be long wearing.

                  Comments about Maxxis Ignitor Tire:

                  I'm running these on a pair of Sun Ringle Black Flag Pro 29er wheels with the Stan's tubeless set-up. It's a nice light, fast, and durable ride. I've riden them in both wet and dry conditions in Central and Western PA and NC. Like others have said, they are great in hard pack and loose over hardpack conditions. I found them to be very versatile and they've handled everything I've thrown at them. In typical dry conditions, they get great grip and are very fast. When the soil gets a little loose and a little wet, they're still good. They don't do so great in very wet and muddy conditions. If you're in very loose sandy conditions, they will slide too much and bog down too. I run them both front and rear, due to the mixed conditions I ride in and like them a lot. For what they are meant for, they're wonderful I have other tires I'll go to for very loose, sandy and muddy conditions. I won't ding them on that. The only minor gripe I have w/them so far is that I haven't been able to get them to hold air for an extended period of time with my tubeless set up. The first time I put them on, they did hold air for a long time. But now, they're good for a nice long ride. But after a day or so in the garage, I'll need to put air back in them. Not a big deal to me, but I certainly could not consider running them tubeless for a multi-day ride. I have not tried other tires yet tubeless on these or other wheels, so take those comments for what they're worth. They've been wearing very well for me and they have not had any issues w/rocks, so they've been plenty durable. Long story short, I really love these tires for most conditions I ride in. I'll be short track racing w/these soon and expect them to perform well over the season. I expect they will last at least a season for me, unless something dramatic happens.

                  This is a great tire that I'm running on the rear. It was hard to get to seat tubeless but once it held it has been a rock star! My riding buddy has been tellong me this for over a year now amd I'm glad i finally took his advice.
