    Aggressor Wide Trail EXO/TR Tire

    Bumping up the width, the Aggressor Wide Trail EXO/TR 29in tire brings you the Aggressor you love, but with a bit of extra traction and plush feel for railing banked berms and sending it into loose rock gardens. With lugs extending further up the sidewall, and reliable EXO sidewall protection, you can book it down the trail in loose and dry conditions with the confidence of tacky hero dirt.

    You can run the Aggressor as a front or rear tire, seeing the softer side knobs provide tons of stability when leaning into corners, but without excess drag to slow you down, as the center uses a harder compound rubber for quick rolling. Its tread pattern lends its self towards loose and dusty trails, and medium-pack, making it an ideal summer tire for those of us who live in dustier places where the sun leaves trails bone-dry. Ultimately, the Aggressor is fun to play around with on a number of trail conditions, provided your trail isn't a mud pie from recent rainfall.

    The Wide Trail design on this particular Aggressor is designed for running rims ranging from 30 to 35 millimeters of inner-width, giving you shorter sidewalls for steering precision, correct knob spacing for railing corners with plentiful grip, and increased support for running lower pressures. This results in a tire that's built for the rigors of aggressive riders who desire better cornering grip and increased bump compliance, without worrying about losing support as they drop the air pressure.

    • Wide trail tires for total cornering control
    • Reinforced side lugs provide grip for railing corners
    • Dual compound with soft cornering knobs and hard center
    • Optimized for wider rims ranging from 30 to 35mm inner
    • 2.5in width allows you to drop your pressure for plush feel
    • Ideal for dusty and loose conditions on sun-baked trails

    Great Rear Tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After running the DHR II in the rear for ages, and a lack of inventory in them this year, I decided to run the Aggressor in the rear at the start of this season. I am super impressed with this tire!

    The grip is amazing and the transition is seamless. When descending this tire rides the line perfectly of being grippy but allowing you to comfortably push beyond that grip to get a little slide (or roost) if you want. Rolling resistance vs the DHR II is noticeably lower, too. On straights while descending I have noticed the bike moving faster without any effort on my part.

    I went 4/5 stars for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, without the EXO+ the durability is not as good. I punctured this tire twice in as many days. The second being a sidewall hit that did not seal. Thank you Cush Core for letting me finish my ride. Second reason the grip in less than hardpack conditions isn't as good as the DHR II. Here in Utah we get deep moon dust by mid-season and this thing has not handled the moon dust that well. Going to swap this out for a Dissector or go back to the DHR II now that trails are getting blown out.

    Overall- this is an amazing tire for hardpack to slightly loose conditions. This will be my tire of choice for early season riding from here on out.

    Aggressor 29

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 29"

    Bought this to replace the same tire on my Ibis Ripmo. Good traction in most conditions, not too much rolling resistance. And durable, it gets a lot of abuse between the granite rocks and oak roots here in New England. Not very grippy on wet roots, but haven't found a tire that is.
    Looked at other options when I needed a replacement but this hits the sweet spot for me: price, weight, and traction.
    Using on the rear, works great for me.

    Maxxis Agressor 29

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Came stock on Yeti SB 100. Very grippy for rear tire, but too heavy. No acceleration. Was great in mud paired with Minion DHF, but feels like a heavy work boot, not a rear mtb tire. Switching our for Schwalbe Racing Ralph.

    Noticeably faster rolling than DHR2

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    DHR2s came front and rear on my enduro bike. I loved the grip, but couldn't tell if it was the tires, the bike in general, or waning fitness that was making the climbs drudgery. I swapped the rear DHR2 EXO for this Aggressor EXO and took almost 2 minutes off a 2 mile climb I ride frequently (at same perceived effort). Your results may vary, but it turned my enduro bike into a much more versatile machine. Now I can keep up with my trail bike riding friends on the climbs as well as run away and hide from them on the descents. On the dry "loose over hard" conditions we currently are experiencing, I haven't noticed much, if any, reduction in traction on the rear compared to the DHR2.

    Maxxis for some reason has his tire rolling slower than DHRII

    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, and is really predictable when cornering traction may be scarce. Personally I prefer to run 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.

    Wide EXO/TR 2.5/29 weighed in at 960g new. Very nice tire. Thanks for the review!

    Fave rear

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love this as a rear tire on my trail bike! Tried on the DH bike and def would not recommend but that’s just me. But the trail bike is money! Rolls smooth and hooks up when you want it too. Love the wide profile

    Grip For Days

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There is a reason that this tire is becoming more commonly spec'd by bike companies. It simply works well. The low center knobs hold your speed but have enough tread to bring you to a stop. This is a solid choice for most all climates and riding conditions but it definitely excels in the dry.

    Run it on the rear

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great tread and grip. I like to run this on the rear and maybe a DHF up front. Love Maxxis tires for riding around Utah. Super durable and strong!

    Good tread, not too durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love the tread design of this, great traction, rolls well, very predictable. But my current one isn't very old and already has a few knobs about to tear off. I guess to just corner too hard.

    Great Traction

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really like the bite as a rear tire. It was solid in corners that I could count on. I've rode about 150 miles of mixed surface. The down side is not durable. I cut it down on a rocky ride and won't run tubeless any longer. Backcountry did work with me to get another tire I upgraded to the DoubleDown.
