With the Forekaster on your bike, you can forget about the weather and hit the trails. Mid-height tread blocks are spaced evenly to allow penetration through loose trail conditions and openly for better mud-clearing compared to other race tires. Wide cupped knobs down the middle provide excellent braking on the sloppiest singletrack. When the leaves start falling and the weather becomes more unpredictable, the Forekaster is the late-season tire of choice.
The most important part of a tire is arguably the rubber compound used to within the tread and Maxxis's MaxxSpeed Compound used in XC tires has two compounds in the outer layer that are specifically formulated to reduce rolling resistance and optimize treadwear and traction.
- 3C: Triple Compound with harder base-layer and two progressively softer top layers for optimal traction and durability
- EXO: Extremely cut-resistant and abrasion resistant material layer added to sidewalls
- TR: Tubeless Ready for increased traction and lower rolling resistance
- WT: Wide Trail casing used on 2.6" models is optimized for 30 - 35mm inner width rims
