This is the 4 th one I have put on and think it is the best tire for ware and traction, for my type of riding.
bought the tire for a poker run in the desert...sharp rocks,solid rock,loose rock, it didn't matter it provided amazing traction without poping or getting worn out
These Maxxis tires were out of stock and other places but Motosport had them at a great price and they delivered like clockwork.
Tires hook up great in rough terrain, not the best sand tire though.
The Desert IT tires are extremely sturdy and have very tough casings. Riding through sharp nasty rocks and gravel doesn't hurt these tires, and the only thing that seems to wear them out is climbing steep, rocky hills at full throttle. These are the go-to tire for desert folk, and work well in sand, rocks, gravel, and the occasional mud pit.
I have been using these tires for years, they are very tuff in the CA rocky deserts
Not really in the desert terrain, but for the mountains of NC this tire is great! Mix of hard pack gravel roads and rocky trails with riding on asphalt roads to get there, these tires have all the side grip I’ve been looking for and the wear is minimal. Definitely keeping these on hand!
I bought this to replace Dunlop 805s(?) because they washed out in the dirt as soon as the ground got any kind of soft, after throwing these on I have a lot more confidence in the dirt and can finally ride where I tell the bike to. Great tires for the socal desert where the dirt can be hard as concrete or loose as a beach. 4 stars for not making it dot everything else is friggin awesome
Use this tubliss and great on the rear. Decent wear no chunking. Works ok at everything.
We have the Maxxis Desert IT 110/90-19 in stock and ready to ship. We have a total of 8 currently available.
The second number is an aspect ratio measurement. This number references the overall height of the tire from the bead to the tallest point in the center of the tread. This number does not actually represent the height of the tire in millimeters, but rather a percentage of the width. On the 120/90-19 the sidewall height would be 90% of the tire width, approximately 108mm.
