Maxxis High Roller II Tyre 29 x 2.50 60TPI 3C/EXO TR Black
Mountain Bike Rider
“Maxxis’ reputation is built on fantastic rubber and tread patterns, and the Maxxis High Roller II 3C MaxxTerra tyre is no exception.
Maxxis has offered a High Roller for what feels like forever, and this second-generation model beefs up and tweaks the tread for more versatility. Slightly better in wet, looser dirt than the popular Minion DHF, it’s great on both ends, although choosing the 3C compound on the front provides way better confidence and edge grip on wet roots and rocks.
The EXO model balances weight and durability well for aggressive trail riding, and is noticeably lighter than most thicker, 1kg or so, dual layer tyres with this much grip. Maxxis offers its own tougher, even better damped, 2x120tpi Double Down casing for extremely rocky terrain or enduro racing too, which is around 200g heavier. With both models, deformation and compliance is excellent with good comfort.” – Mick Kirkman, MBR.co.uk, October 2017
“We loved the improved predictability during cornering and were impressed by how well the tire performed in the sloppiest of conditions. The new High Roller II is a step away from a comprehensive dry tire, and a step towards a true all-conditions option that can be used in more settings. It slots in between the Minion, a dry tire, and the Wet Scream. The original High Roller was, and still is, a great tire… I’d still use the first generation High Roller, but the new version is an improvement in nearly every regard.” – Adam Mantle, PinkBike.com, August 2011
