Troy Brosnan likes to ride fast, picking apart World Cup courses to finish on the podium with remarkable consistency.

To create a tire that matched his high-speed, precision riding style, Brosnan worked with Maxxis engineers to create his own signature tire: the Maxxis Dissector.

Brosnan’s signature tire mixes fast rolling center treads with substantial corner lugs. The Dissector will go fast and carry speed, but still find traction to make it through the next tight corner.

The Dissector is a mix of existing Maxxis tires, the Rekon, Minion DHF and High Roller II. Starting back in early 2018, Brosnan worked with Maxxis engineers to balance rolling speed, cornering traction and braking traction for the new tire.

Ramped center knobs roll fast when you want to carry speed. When you need to slow down, sharp, flat rear edges will provide strong braking traction. Small sipes add sublte flex to the lugs, for improved braking and to create a smoother transition from centre to side knobs.

Last, the C-shaped edge knobs provide ample traction while clearing debris as you ride.

Maxxis and downhill star Troy Brosnan areadding to the thrill of this year’sCrankworxWhistlerby launching the Dissector, his new signature tire, at the festival.

Maxxis is launching the Dissector in four versions, to start. Two trail casings, which Maxxis says can be used front and rear. There’s also a 27.5″ and 29″ DH casing option for park and downhill racing, which Maxxis says is ideally used as a rear tire paired with one of their more aggressive front tires.

-27.5 x 2.40 3C MaxxTerra EXO (trail)
-29 x 2.40 3C MaxxTerra EXO (trail)
-27.5 x 2.40 3C MaxxGrip DH (downhill/park)
-29 x 2.40 3C MaxxGrip DH (downhill/park)

All versions of the Dissector use Maxxis’ Wide Trail tubeless-ready casings, which is designed to work best with 30 – 35 mm rims (internal diameter).

 

 

Available in select markets beginning August 9, 2019.

Pricing is in line with current Maxxis tire offerings: $75 USD for EXO, $90 USD for DH casing.
