Troy Brosnan's Go-Fast Signature Tyre
Troy wanted a “unicorn” of a tyre – a center tread design that carried speed easily but with edge blocks worthy of world-class cornering speed. Using our Rekon, Minon DHF, and High Roller II tread patterns as a starting point, Troy and our engineering team began development on the Dissector during the 2018 World Cup season.
The centre knobs are all heavily ramped to minimise 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. C-shaped edge blocks alternate between being closer and farther away from the centre line of the tyre. This pattern reduces vagueness when transferring from the centre tread to the cornering tread. A distinct channel along either side of the centre knobs – along with ample spacing between all lugs – helps to clear debris.
Our EXO+ construction combines two of Maxxis best puncture protection materials; SilkShield and EXO. The SilkShield layer runs from bead-to-bead with a layer of EXO along the sidewalls. Combined, these two materials create EXO+ which improves tread puncture protection by 27%; sidewall durability by 51%; and resistance to pinch flats by 28%.
An intermediate compound configuration used in select mountain tires. 3C Maxx- Terra is softer and offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip.
