You weren't a fan of the weather forecast you read online this morning, or the one you listened to on the radio. Both called for classic shoulder season unpredictability, which means showers, a cold front, and messy trails. Though you'll do your best to avoid creating ruts that last the whole season, you and your speed-hungry XC bike will still be dealing with wet, soggy trails for the next few weeks. Until things really dry out, wrap your rims in the Maxxis Forekaster 3C/EXO/TR Tire to stay upright when loose ground tries to pull you down. Constructed with widely spaced knobs that shed mud quickly, the Forekaster won't get bogged down on sticky trails. It also comes with wide cupped center knobs that maintain braking consistency when you squeeze the levers hard coming into a slick, technical switchback. In case you find yourself riding for time, ride assured that all of that grip comes offset by a high TPI and Maxxis' 3C Maxx Terra construction, which help keep the focus on low rolling resistance and speed.
