Maxxis all-purpose road race tire receives a refresh for 2021 with a new lighter weight casing, upgraded puncture protection, and a revised tread pattern. The result is a lighter, faster, and more durable High Road.
- HYPR compound
- 170 TPI casing - 2% reduction in rolling resistance from 120 TPI
- ZK puncture protection - 7% increase in puncture resistance
- Pro level competition tyre
HYPR is a full-silica compound and our best-performing compound to date. Compared to our previous road racing compound, HYPR has 16% less rolling resistance with 23% better grip in wet conditions. Impressively, HYPR decreases rolling resistance and increases traction, all while keeping durability equal to our previous rubber compounds.
ONE70 utilizes special high thread count fabric in the casing, reducing rolling resistance even further than our other racing tyres. ONE70 Technology also provides better road feel and weight savings over other racing tyres.
ZK is our next generation puncture protection material that is lighter, more flexible, and stronger than previous materials such as K2. Maxxis typically uses ZK as a breaker layer, situated underneath the tread in the middle of the tyre.
