Maxxis Assegai Tire Customer Review


I wanted to explore a better tire for the hard pack trails of Southern California. Don’t get me wrong, the Maxxis DHF that I was running was doing a great job, I wanted to explore a tire that had less channeling for muddy terrain, as the summer months have been dry as a desert.

First Ride

Then came along the new Assegai, with the technology of an added knob to help with the grip while cornering, exactly what I was looking for. I also wanted a tire with a stiffer sidewall, as I’ve liked the double downs from Maxxis. The Assegai didn’t disappoint, it was instantly noticeable, being more solid in the turns, the tire just felt planted. Read about other’s feedback on the added weight, I don’t notice it on the downhills or up hills but did notice the bike seems to be a bit slower on the flats, with some resistance due to the tread or weight, or it could just be in my head.

Final Thoughts

Overall, this is my new favorite tire for the front on my Hightower LT.
