Nice grip.

These tires hookup great! I run them at about 10psi in the slow technical stuff and they really stick. I don't do any high speed open desert riding so I can't speak to their stability in those conditions. They seem to last as well.

Great for dry rocky desert riding

I ride in very rocky dry desert and extremely hot trails and most tires ive used for the rocky trails end up losing all the knobbs due to he rocks hust tearing them off and this tire is honestly the only one that holds its own out there honestly the best tire for rocky desert trails

Horrible grip

I'm confused at all the good reviews here. This is one of the worst front tires I've ever had. I've tried to use it for desert racing, and I just could not stand it. It has very little side-to-side /cornering traction, and after a while the side knobs start to chunk off. It will wash out on you whether you're turning hard or upright.

The tread pattern doesn't make sense for anything besides a straight line. Don't trust a front tire that looks anything like a paddle tire.

Great Front Tire

This is a very versatile tire and hooks up on changing terrain. I run cross country, occasional motocross, trail rides and Hatfield McCoy trails in WV. This tire handles all the changing terrain great. I go with the desert model, because of the thicker sides to help avoid flats.

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.

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.

A: It would handle fair to poor, just like most knobbies, when used in the sand. For good handling (turning) you would want to use a sand tire.

Q: Tire Directional Arrow
Over 4 years 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.
