This article is about using Tubliss system with Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT tire.
The Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT tire is a solid all around performer, that wears well and can take a beating.
The very first set of Tubliss I mounted I also mounted front and rear the Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT tire.
Maxxis Desert IT
I had been using the Desert IT tire for a few years because of the value that it provided.
It has good grip (not great) in most conditions and the real reason I was running it was of how long the tire would wear….
The Maxxis Desert IT comes with a stiffer side wall and a rubber compound that holds up against chucking or chipping.
Having a stiffer side wall helps protect against pinched flats if you are using standard tubes.
Because of how stiff the sidewall I have had buddies run their tires during races at ZERO PSI.
Here is what you get with the Maxxcross Desert IT
- Long lasting dirtbike tire
- Stiffer sidewalls and carcass
- Taller knobby’s for desert conditions
- Do it all tire
Maxxis Desert IT with TUbliss
The Maxxis Maxxcross Desert IT works really well with the Tubliss system.
The Desert IT has a really stiff carcass which means you can run this tire at a really low pressure…
In fact one of my buddies runs the Maxxis Desert IT with NO AIR on his KX450 when desert racing….
This allows you to have a ton of traction but the tire still is stiff enough that you really don’t get a ton of tire roll.
I personally like running a Maxxis Desert IT with Tubliss because it is a really tough tire and last longer then comparable tires.
If you are thinking about getting the Maxxis IT…you should do it.
