Predicting the weather is almost impossible during the shoulder seasons, especially when you're trying to do it on your way out the door for a ride. Unless you're a meteorologist, give it up already. Wrap the new Maxxis Forekaster EXO/TR Tire around your hoops as soon as the weather starts to take a turn after dry summer days, and barrel into anything knowing it'll have your back. Where your weather reading comes up short, the Forekaster takes over, tracking loose, muddy trails where you may not even expect them and hanging on reliably when you jam on the brakes coming into a steep, slick descent. Adaptability is key to enjoying the trails under the sketchy conditions that set in late in the season, so Maxxis trusts dual-compound rubber to give the Forekaster confident grip when you rally over steep berms faster than you should. Once you're back on a straightaway, the tire's fast-rolling center and 120 TPI takes over, accelerating quickly to help you make the most of a rare dry stretch of trail under tree cover. Maxxis shapes the squared knobs to medium-height, then spaced them evenly to allow them to shed mud and keep you from getting bogged down on a long ride. Along the center, wide, cupped knobs back you up when you fly into a descent covered in slushy snow faster than you should and slam on the brakes. The tire won't clean up all your mistakes but it'll certainly try.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
