From the Dissector, Troy Brosnan wanted to create a “unicorn” tire – a center tread design that carried speed easily but with edge blocks worthy of world-class cornering speed. The Dissector center knobs are all heavily ramped to minimize drag, but retain sharp, flat edges along their backs to provide strong braking traction. Small sipes give the knobs additional flexion, increasing their surface area during braking and aiding the transition to the edge blocks when cornering. A distinct channel along either side of the center knobs – along with ample spacing between all lugs – helps to clear debris.
Still need help deciphering the Maxxis lingo? Here is the ultimate breakdown of Maxxis rubber compounds and here is the ultimate breakdown of Maxxis sidewalls!
To find the perfect front tire to complement the Maxxis Dissector, check out our favorite tire combinations! But to save you some reading time, use the Maxxis Assegai for maximum grip or the Maxxis Minion DHF 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!
