Maxxis is introducing an updated version of its Shorty mid-spike mountain bike tire, available for trail, downhill, or enduro riding.

Based on feedback from Maxxis’ World Cup DH and Enduro World Series-winning riders, the second generation Shorty offers a revised knob design. The “double-wide” single center knob is now split into two knobs, and additional support was added to the cornering knobs. Other changes include a narrower 2.40” width for better mud clearance and reduced weight. Revised siping on the knobs offer better braking and cornering traction and raised ridges on the casing help shed sticky mud.

Ideal for wet or extremely dusty conditions, the mid-spike Shorty is tubeless-ready and available in 27×2.40” and 29×2.40” sizes, with casing and compound options for trail, downhill, and enduro.
