It feels almost suspiciously well: the Grifter is almost half the weight of normal freestyle tyres. Your tricks work much easier and you also save a lot of energy. The high-pressure 120 TPI carcass and Dual Compound tread make landings safe at any angle. The Grifter is Maxxis' most popular Freestyler tyre because it rolls well and absorbs the large volume of hard landings well, so it was the first choice when Maxxis developed a 29" Urban Assault tyre. Now there is the right tyre for this new bike category: light, stable and fast.
Wire bead core The bead core must hold the tyre securely on the rim. High-quality wire is very well suited for this - the disadvantages are: Not foldable and slightly heavier (approx. 50g more). Dual compound Two different rubber compounds are processed into a tread strip. This material mix depends on the desired application of the tyre.
