thies tires are great they hook up through out the life of the tires but the tread wears down way faster than they should.
Been on a handful of rides, tires show minimum wear-should last a while. This is a tough carcass tire, rookies might want to seek professional installation.( but that's where the long life comes from)
I ride in rocks, (lots of rocks) roots, and red clay. I avoid mud but what lve been in the back tire churned right through, front corners good. I haven't dropped the bike because of tires yet.
GOOD TIRE ,I BEEN BUYING THIS TIRE FOR YEARS.
I ride in the deserts and trails 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 .
Maxxis desert IT was a good choice. I don't really think matter too much no matter what kind of bike or the brand of the tire. The back tire does all of the work. It hooks up in all conditions, but not super well in sand, but if I am in really sandy areas, the larger 120/90/19 tire does. They are a hard rubber, so installation is a little harder, but worth it.
It sounds like a IT(intermediate terrain) tire will work best for your riding conditions.
Race-proven rubber compound delivers excellent traction in soft / intermediate conditions on the motocross track or off-road.
Anti-flex knob bridges on side lugs offer solid straight-line stability and enhance grip for aggressive cornering.
Developed in the Grand National Cross Country series.
Perfect tire for any intermediate, loamy or muddy terrain.
