For 2012, Maxxis International has released a 26 x 2.1 mud tire called Medusa. Each detail of the tire is carefully engineered to tackle the hassle caused by mud on the trail. Its tread pattern is designed to be spiked and widely spaced to enhance traction and resistance against packing.
With the Medusa, riders do not have to worry about mud, thanks to its low profile. Both in the front and the rear, the wide spaces of the cleated knob design make the low-volume mud tire perform excellently on loose and wet terrains.
Behind the 2012 Maxxis Medusa 26 x 2.1 Mud Tire are professional cross country racers from Europe as its inspiration. This is a reliable tool when racing, especially on muddy terrains. Moreover, its low profile makes it perfect for riders of lighter weight.
