Having the right tire for the terrain you're riding on is highly beneficial. Different tread pattens work better on different terrains. The Maxxis Highroller II Wide Trail Triple Compound Maxxterra tire works best in loose, loose over hard, medium, and wet conditions. It has an open and aggressive tread design that penetrates the soil and clears mud easily. Modified knobs on the shoulder and center help to improve braking performance and traction on hard surfaces. It is tubeless ready so you can run lower pressures and have fewer puncture flats thanks to the tubeless sealant you use.
