Technology


  • Tubeless Ready: Tubeless tyres give the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube. Maxxis Tubeless Ready (TR) tyres provide the benefits of a UST tubeless tyre without the weight penalty. Our TR tyres use a standard casing and require the use of a liquid sealant in order to make them airtight

  • MaxxShield: MaxxShield represents the ultimate in flat protection. We begin with our SilkShield bead to bead protection and add our K2 (Kevlar® Composite) layer for unparalleled durability.

Hybrid Bike Tyre Guide

 

Hybrid Bike Tyre Guide

Tyres make up a huge part of how a bike rides and are as important on a hybrid bike as they are on a road or mountain bike. When deciding which tyre is right for your hybrid bike it is important that you get one that’s the right size. You will also want to choose tyres that have the right tyre tread and levels of puncture protection for the kind of riding that you do.


Tyre Size

The size of a bike tyre can be shown in two different ways; traditional or ETRTO. Both use two numbers to show the wheel size that the tyre will fit and the width of the tyre. Traditional tyre sizing uses the wheel size followed by the tyre width while ETRTO uses tyre width followed by the wheel size. This can be confusing because these two systems measure the wheel rim differently.

Example: 700 x 28c is the same size as 28-622

Traditional and ETRTO tyre size table

We recommend that you use the traditional method wherever possible as most of the tyres that we stock use this system. If your existing tyre only shows the ETRTO tyre size then you can use the table below to convert it to the traditional tyre size system.

Tread

Tyre tread refers to the pattern on the top of the tyre. This affects the performance in terms of steering precision, grip on different surfaces. Tyres with a relatively smooth tread pattern will be fast rolling on smooth roads and cycle paths but won’t give you much grip off-road. If you want to ride gravel tracks as well as roads, then look for a tyre with a blocky tread pattern. These won’t be as fast as tyres with smooth tread but will allow you to ride on a greater variety of terrain.

Compound

The rubber compound of the tyre makes up the characteristics of the tyre: how it rides, feels and performs. Softer compounds offer more grip but will wear quicker. Harder compounds last a little longer but don’t provide the same level of grip. More expensive tyres tend to have a softer rubber compound for greater performance. Tyres with dual or triple compounds have harder rubber in the centre for durability with softer rubber on the edges for improved cornering grip. Some, like Continental’s Black Chili compound, include additives which help balance both rolling resistance and grip.

Puncture Protection

Puncture protection is built into many hybrid tyres and is a great way to avoid getting a flat. Many tyres have a layer beneath the tread that helps prevent punctures. There is a wide range to choose from with more expensive options either having a greater amount of protection or protection that weighs less. As with many cycling components, there’s a balance between levels of puncture protection and weight.

Visibility

Many hybrid bike tyres have reflective sidewalls. This white strip around the edge of the tyre is made from reflective materials that make the wheel look like a glowing hoop when lit from the side at night. Reflective sidewalls are a great way to improve your side on visibility when cycling after dark.

Maxxis Tyre Guide

 

Maxxis Tyre Guide

Maxxis are perhaps the most popular MTB tyre brand with tread patterns and tyre technologies that are perfectly suited to each mountain bike discipline. Maxxis road tyres build on this technology to offer cutting edge performance. See the range of technologies that give their bike tyres a performance edge.


Protection

Double Down

Double Down is a dual ply casing designed specifically for enduro tyres. A butyl insert sits above the bead within the two ply casing. This offers extra strength where the bead meets the tyre for extra stiffness where it’s needed most as well as reducing the chances of burping. Double Down tyres are 15% lighter than the equivalent Downhill tyre.

Maxxis Double Down technology

Silkworm

This breaker layer sits under the tread and offers improved puncture and tear resistance. Silkworm features on selective Maxxis tyres.

Maxxis Silkworm

SilkShield 

This puncture and tear resistant layer is incorporated into the casing of the tyre and runs from bead to bead. As well as offering under the tread puncture protection like Silkworm, SilkShield provides an additional level of protection for sidewalls.

Maxxis Silkshield

Kevlar Composite (K2)

This puncture protection breaker layer is exclusive to Maxxis. Kevlar Composite offers better protection than both standard Kevlar and Vectran. Supple and lightweight K2 ensure that tyre performance and ride quality are unaffected.

Maxxis K2

MaxxShield 

Combining both a K2 (Kevlar Composite) under tread layer with SilkShield bead-to-bead protection, Maxx Shield represents the ultimate in flat protection.

Maxxis Shield

ebike

Maxxis eBike tyres are designed to meet European ECE-R75 standards, guaranteeing performance and reliability for additional cargo capacity and increased speeds electric bikes can offer.

EXO Protection

EXO Protection tyres feature a cut-resistant and abrasion-resistant layer in the sidewalls. This densely woven fabric is also lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tyre remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for exceptionally rocky trails where the chance of sidewall cuts and abrasions is high.

Maxxis Exo

Butyl Insert 

An extra piece of butyl rubber that extends from the bead of a downhill tyre up into the sidewall. Featured in Maxxis DH tyres, the butyl insert helps prevent pinch flats, protects the rim from hard hits and adds sidewall stability.

Rubber Compounds

3C Triple Compound Road

Triple Compound road technology utilizes three distinct silica compounds in different locations within the tread of the tyre. The centre compound is optimized for exceptional tread wear and low rolling resistance. The progressively softer shoulder compounds provide increased grip while cornering.

Maxxis 3c Triple Compound

3C Triple Compound Mountain

Maxxis 3C Triple Compound mountain technology uses a harder, longer lasting base layer and two progressively softer top layers in order to optimize traction and stability. Maxxis offers three different configurations of our 3C Triple Compound mountain technology: MaxxSpeed, MaxxTerra and MaxxGrip.

Maxxis 3c Triple Compound Mountain

3C MaxxSpeed

MaxxSpeed is the fastest rolling 3C tyre. Used primarily in cross country and xc race tyres, the two compounds in the outer layer are specially formulated to reduce rolling resistance and optimize tread wear and traction.

Maxxis 3c Maxxspeed

3C MaxxTerra

An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tyres MaxxTerra is the 3C compound that is ideal for trail and enduro riding. 3C MaxxTerra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better tread wear and less rolling resistance than 3C MaxxGrip.

Maxxis 3c Maxxterra

3C MaxxGrip

This is the grippiest Maxxis 3C compound.3C MaxxGrip uses the softest rubber compounds to offer the ultimate in grip and slow rebound properties for unparalleled traction in downhill applications.

Technology

Bead

There are three different types of bead on Maxxis tyres. Wire beads are strong but are not so flexible. Foldable beads are made from spun aramid or Kevlar fibres. These are also strong but are lighter weight than wire as well as being easier to transport. Carbon fibre beads are flexible with greater strength to withstand the forces exerted by a high-pressure road tyre.


Casing

Single-Ply Casing - One layer of nylon wrapped from bead-to-bead. A single ply casing conforms well to the terrain and is lighter weight.

Dual-Ply Casing - Two layers of casing material are used from bead-to-bead, providing additional protection and sidewall stiffness for enduro and downhill applications.


Threads Per Inch

The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tyre's casing. Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier. Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tyre.


Tubeless Ready (TR)

Tubeless tyres provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tyre; and less chance of flatting since there is no tube.

Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tyres: Tubeless Road, tubular, and tubeless Ready. The use of liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tyre will void the warranty.
