Maxxis has harnessed nano-dispersement technology to combine silica-rich compounds with finely ground, consistently-sized carbon black particles, resulting in better carbon black dispersal and bonding throughout the rubber. The end result is a grippier, long-lasting tyre.
Our R&D departments are constantly striving to produce more advanced and better performing rubber compounds that deliver improved performance. In Ultra R Rubber they have achieved an outstanding tread compound which delivers long life, good fuel consumption and superior wet grip.
Maxxis Triple Shield (MTS) is offered on all Maxxis radial light truck tyres with 8-ply and 10-ply ratings. These tyres have a true 3-ply sidewall construction while almost all competitor products only have 2-ply sidewalls. With this extra ‘skin’, Maxxis MTS tyress provide a more robust and durable tyre, with a greater sidewall puncture resistance.
Virtual Intelligent Prototyping, or VIP, is a revolutionary process that allows our scientists to predict a tyre’s performance before it enters production.
To test tyre concepts in the early stages of design, Maxxis engineers created VIP Technology, which combines a series of computer-aided analysis programs that lay out a framework for each tyre’s design. The system accounts for pressure points at varying inflation levels, and contact points to simulate cornering, acceleration, braking and the effects of strain and wear on the tyres.
This allows Maxxis to ensure that every new tyre meets specific requirements before the first prototype is even produced, reducing development time and costs and helping us to provide the low-cost, high-value products you use today.
