The DH version of the Maxxis Shorty was an instant favourite of our World Cup DH racers. The single-ply version offers trail riders the same traction in a much lighter package. All trail versions of the Shorty feature our Tubeless Ready casing and 3C Maxx Terra compound. EXO sidewall protection is available as an option for each size.
Today’s World Cup downhill tracks are steep, technical monsters with ever-changing conditions. The pros needed a mid-spike tire that could handle dry, loose, blown-out corners as well as a bit of mud. The Shorty is that tire. A high-volume, dual-ply downhill casing makes the Shorty a more versatile option than a dedicated mud spike like our Wet Scream. Large, tall and slightly staggered side knobs penetrate the loose soil to provide predictable, stable cornering at warp speeds. The alternating pattern of the centre tread features widely-spaced knobs to clear debris, and their square shape offers plenty of braking bite. For downhill mountain biking in gnarly, mixed conditions, the Shorty can’t be beaten!
