Maxxis has risen to prominence in the motorcycle and ATV industry with their pursuit of excellence and their great performing and long lasting tires testify to that pursuit. The Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT is specially designed compound which increases durability in rocky or desert conditions by reducing chipping and cutting. Maxxis Designed the Desert IT tires with a tall knob design for maximum traction when racing motorcycles in sandy conditions. A stiffer carcass design minimizes flex making the Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT less likely to pinch a tube to keep you riding longer.
"Going back to this tire again. It's the only one I have had that I can take out and punish in the deserts of AZ. The rocks and hard trails don't seem to phase it unlike other tires I have had that loose tread with every trip."
