Named after the rugged mountain range in Italy, the Maxxis Dolomites were designed as a do-it-all competition road tyre. With a lightweight 120 TPI casing and dual-compound rubber, the Maxxis Dolomites are at home tackling big climbs and the descents afterwards. With Maxxis's under-tread Silkworm puncture protection, the Dolomites can hold its own on rough roads.
Folding: The main advantage of a folding-bead tyre is its weight. The aramid fiber beads weigh less than steel wire. Folding beads are also easier to store and travel with.
TPI: TPI stands for threads per Inch. It defines the number of threads contained in one inch of the tyre casing. The lower the number of TPI, the larger the gauge cords in the casing. Thus, the more durable the tyre becomes. The higher the TPI, the more lightweight the tyre becomes and the more supple the ride of the tyre.
Compound Durometer: It is an international standard for measuring the hardness of rubber in Shore "A" units. The Maxxis Dolomites use a dual 50a/60a compound.
