22/05/2012: The Maxxis Tyres - A Good Choice For Durability and Performance
The Maxxis Tyres are a brand that has become well known in the industry for the fact that they provide good durability in time, high performance and good response on different types of driving environments.
The company provides a large variety of models that will accommodate any type of consumer, from well known and received MAZ1 to the new PRO R1.
The PRO R
The Maxxis new release, the PRO R1, has been developed to ensure improved traction abilities in both dry and wet weather with decreased fuel consumption and noise levels. It is available for purchase in sizes between 195/60R15 to 245/45ZR119.
An interesting aspect that the new PRO R1 brings is the new technology that Maxxis has begun to implement on its new releases, the nano-dispersement technology. This technology allows the manufacturer to combine silica based fine particles with carbon particles which produces an improved rubber material known as “Ultra R”.
This type of rubber offers improved traction possibilities as it has better adherence with the road’s surface and decreased fuel consumption.
Besides the material used, the new pattern design of the PRO R1 also improves adherence of the tyres on the asphalt on wet conditions. It is a unique design which combines a multi-pitch block on the sides with a raised middle section which follows a spiral shape. Besides the improved traction in unfavourable weather conditions, the unique pattern design also offers improved control and decreased vibration and noise.
The MAZ1 is probably the best known product from Maxxis. It is available for purchase in a wide variety of sizes up to 285/30ZR20. What attracts the most is the design of the tyre that offers improved cornering manoeuvring and stability.
The design is quite massive and gives the tyre improved traction and stability. The additional high rim protection improves driving capabilities through wet conditions. The silica compound present in the manufacturing material of the tyre ensures improved traction and decreases fuel consumption. The additional nylon top improves the tyres durability through time.
The MAZ4S is the 4 season tyre from Maxxis. The design of the tyre is what makes it unique and offers consumers improved traction, manoeuvring and decreased fuel consumption.
The V-shaped crush pattern and the silica rich compound is what ensures the products quality. The centre design which has rib like elements improves the casing and gives the body more resistance and stability. The circumferential design elements improves traction in wet conditions as it repeals most of the water on the tyres and decreases spinning required in snow conditions. The additional grove design decreases noise and increases stability and therefore ensures a pleasant drive for the driver as well as the passengers. The tyre is available in sizes between 185/55R16 to 285/35R22.
The New RC1 line
In the latest news Maxxis has entered the road racing tyre niche with the new RC1. The tyre has been designed for dry weather road racing, having been designed with improved durability and traction in dry driving environments.
One of the models of the line, the MAZ1 Drift, which is a competition version of the commercial popular MAZ1, had already made an impact with numerous victories in competitions in the UK, US and Europe and it is the representative tyre for Tram Japspeedm, the 2011 winners of the Maxxis British Drift Championship.
