Read Vital’s Review of the Assegai – https://www.vitalmtb.com/features/We-Ride-Greg-Minnaars-Maxxis-Tire-The-Assegai,2301
Designed by World Champion downhiller Greg Minnaar, the Maxxis Assegai is a predictable, heavy-duty mountain bike tire that is suited for aggressive, descent-oriented riding. It’s available in 27.5 and 29-inch diameters with 2.5-inch widths. Right now, DH casing is all that’s available and at 1320g, our 29-inch version was not light. It did, however, provide extreme stability and traction when the terrain got fast and rough. The downside was the weight penalty and slow rolling characterstics on the way up. If you’re looking to turn your trail or enduro bike into a descent-specific machine, the Maxxis Assegai could be the ticket. Retail price is $90 USD.
