Maxxis Introduces the All-New Maxxcross MX IT

SUWANEE, GA – July 18, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Maxxis is excited to announce the availability of its revolutionary new Maxxcross MX IT! The Maxxcross MX IT is a fully-featured intermediate motocross tire, with technologies including a dual compound tread pattern with long and varied tread pitches.

130718-Maxxcross-MX-IT_Front130718-Maxxcross-MX-IT_RearThe front MX IT tire features Maxxis’ standard IT compound for the base of the knobs, with a soft cap layer of rubber across the center to absorb vibration and enhance braking traction. The rear tire’s center tread knobs feature a softer compound than the shoulders for holeshotting traction while maintaining stability when leaning.

The long and varied pitches of the tread design mean that the new Maxxcross MX IT can grip any terrain from soft to hard with each rotation, so this tire is optimized for outdoor tracks with varying terrains.

To top it off, a new Maxxis sidewall construction provides a sure-footed base, limiting tire roll in corners.

“The MX IT is a motocross-specific tire to complement our already proven off-road lineup of Maxxcross tires,” said Scott Perkins, marketing specialist. “We are pumped to begin a new era with a renewed focus on motocross performance. As a brand, Maxxis is well-established in the cross country and desert markets, and the MX IT will reaffirm that we can dominate on the track as well.”
