5. MAXXIS CY­CLOCROSS TYRES

Australian Mountain Bike - - Thehub New Products -

It’s win­ter, and even if that doesn’t mean much where you live, it does change rid­ing habits for a lot of us. Cy­clocross rac­ing has been grow­ing in Aus­tralia over the past years, with many strong lo­cal and state level events, and now a bril­liant Na­tional Se­ries. For a na­tional level race, and some A Grade club events, you will need a ded­i­cated ‘cross bike. But for oth­ers you can have a go on your MTB.

Maxxis have some great value tyres that can let you take your 29er MTB to a ‘cross race and have a crack with a faster wheel set-up. Take cau­tion if you try to set these up tube­less, that’s not their pur­pose. But it’s a great way to make your MTB a lit­tle faster on twisty cor­ners through grass and mud that make up many ‘cross cour­ses. Of course, they’ll fit right onto a ded­i­cated ‘cross bike too. The Lo­cust is bet­ter for drier con­di­tions, the Raze for looser and wet­ter cour­ses. Price $39.95 up­wards From bi­corp.com.au
