The Assegai tire is designed primarily for downhill racing and aggressive trail riding in mixed conditions. The knob height falls between the Minion DHR II and the Shorty. Like the Minion tires, the center knobs are heavily ramped on the leading edge to reduce rolling resistance. A small knob located between the center tread and side knobs provides a smooth transition while cornering. When combined with Maxxis’ 3C MaxxGrip rubber compound, the Assegai offers predictable traction, even over slippery roots and rocks.

To find the perfect rear tire to complement the Assegai, check out our favorite tire combinations! But to save you some reading time, use the Maxxis Minion DHRII for maximum grip or the Maxxis Dissector for a combination of grip and fast rolling speed!
Don't forget new tubeless sealant to keep your tire inflated, and an insert to keep from pinch flatting on rocky trails!
