Bomb tire

If you're tired of burning through motocross tires and want a tougher tire but hate lousy crossovers...get this!! I ride it on street and dirt, excellent performance on both.

Great desert tire

I run maxxis tires on my YZ450, they hook up great and are durable even through the rough desert terrain

Good all around tire

I run this Maxxis desert-IT front tire with a matching maxxis desert-IT rear tire in the deserts of New Mexico .
Its a great combination if your looking for a good all around tire .
Having such a thick sidewall it allows me to run lower psi and get maximum traction . The Maxxis Desert-IT set last longer then any other set I've bought in the past .
it hooks up well . There different tires on the market that hook up better but don't last nearly as long .
One thing to keep in mind when installing these tires .
They are directional tires .

Good all around tire

I use this tire in combination with the Tubliss system. I typically run about 10psi in the tire. I generally ride rocky, ledgy conditions with some loose soil. This tire works well in sand too. The only thing it does not work well in is deep slippery mud. I get about 75 hours of life from this tire.

Sweet!!!

Bought a set of these for my sons WR250F, His CR250R, and my KLX400R. We ride on the track and on Massively rocky terrain with very sharp rocks and these tires give great grip in not only those areas but sand on the mesa in NM as well. After 20hrs of riding in the mountains on rocky terrain these tires have shown almost no wear, no torn knobs, and no cuts. I just ordered a new set for my CRF450R. great job maxis.

For the desert guys....

I've put 2700 miles of Rocky Mountain single track and high desert on my front tire since I installed it in June '13 and it is finally time for a new one. The tire has taken a beating, never had a flat tube. Tire held up extremely well considering what it has been through - sharp rocks, many miles of high speed desert blasting, did acceptably in the loam. Finally the outer lugs are chunking off and the center lugs are worn down. I am definitely ordering another!

Maxxis Desert IT - One Tough Tire

Use the Maxxis Desert IT when durability and flat prevention are your primary concerns. For example, I use it for week long trips in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I have tried many others, and none have held up an given me the flat prevention the Desert IT's do.
Stiff sidewalls, so they are not the easiest to change, especially with super heavy duty tubes.

Let the good times roll

The front tire was fairly easy to put on the durability is really good. I have mostly ridden it in the woods and in deep sand. Buy it for the durability.

Love this tire

While it's not DOT approved, it makes a great dual sport tire. In the upper Midwest, we've got all sorts of conditions, but a LOT of sand. Outstanding traction and stability in just about every condition, and the hard compound offers great mileage - I'm averaging over 2,000 miles on a set with a good mix of street, gravel and trails.

Great tire. Hardly wears. You will be able to get at least half a season with one tire. If you dont race or ride alot, then you can probably get a full year out of them.

Doesnt do well when its wet. A little harder to put on but thats cause of the thick sidewalls. Holding up great. Have a few rides and a desert race on it. The course was super rocky and not a single cut on it.

Q: Tire Directional Arrow?
2 years 5 months ago
I noticed my Maxxcross Desert IT Front Tire tire has an arrow on one side. Is this a directional arrow, and do I have to mount it this way?

A: Yes, That would be a directional arrow. You will want to mount the tire so that it is spinning in the direction of the arrow while you are riding.
