    Cornering king.

    Booking it into corners at high speed has a few pay offs — between shaving off seconds, boosted control, and that weightless feeling you get when you're sideways in the middle of a banked berm — however it also carries its inherent risks — most often, sliding out on a loose patch from a not-enough-traction situation, dropping all of the speed you'd hoped to save, and instead ending up somewhere in the bushes just off trail. It doesn't have to be that way, though, with the 29in Maxxis Aggressor Wide Trail Double Down/TR Tire. This iteration brings you the same tread pattern you've grown to know and love on the Aggressor, but with lugs that position themselves further out on the rim, so you can enjoy the wide-trail control of a lofty 2.5-inch tire gripping the trail.

    Maxxis' Double Down dual-ply casing construction provides downhill-inspired protection that EXO just doesn't manage to tackle. It comes with a slight weight penalty, but boasts a full 120 TPI, compared to the EXO's 60. Weighing in just over 1000-grams, it adds a bit of weight over EXO, however what it carries in weight it more than makes up for in increased durability, with a casing that holds on through rough miles and weather. The nobby tread design of the Aggressor features hard edges and reinforced side knobs to keep you locked in through loose and squirly sections of trail, holding tight to help keep you from washing out on tight switchbacks.

    • A wide 29er tire for control in loose switchbacks
    • Double Down casing boosts durability to DH levels
    • Rugged tread pattern keeps you locked into corners
    • Wide-trail construction brings lugs higher on sidewall
    • Dual compound rubber with beefy lugs for control in loose and slick conditions

    So Good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As others have mentioned, this tire is fantastic and my go-to tire as well. Good grip without feeling overly sluggish, DD sidewall is supportive and offers way more puncture protection over a standard casing, additional weight is minimal for the abuse the tire can take, and lastly it's quite predictable. I prefer the 2.3 over the 2.5 since I think it rolls a bit better, the 2.5in is only 80g heavier than the 2.3 though.

    Excellent choice for dry conditions

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It's great to see the Aggressor now available in 2.5 Wide Trail casing. The Aggressor does really well as a rear tire for mixed dry conditions. The file tread between the knobs seems to help with loose over hardpack i.e. marble sized rocks scattered across the trail. It excels in medium and loose dirt too. The side knobs are plenty supportive for hard cornering. The center knobs provide good braking traction but not quite as good as the DHR in my opinion. On the other hand I do think this tire rolls faster than the DHR, especially on hardpack.

    The Dual Compound rubber is harder than 3C and does last noticeably longer. That's part of the reason this does so well in the rear where tires tend to wear more quickly. The one downside I've found is that in true muddy conditions this tire packs up with mud between the knobs and doesn't shed it as easily as something like the DHR, probably due to the file tread. But again, for excellent grip in all types of dry conditions it's hard to beat this tire.

    FINALLY A 2.5 AGGRESSOR

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been running the aggressor for a couple years now and I've loved every second of it. My only complaint was that it didn't come in a 2.5 width. However, the woes of 2.3 is no more. The 2.5 has fantastic grip while climbing, but still rolls really well. Absolutely zero complaints.
