The original Forekaster was designed as a wet weather option for XC, while the new version is aimed squarely at modern short travel (100mm-130mm) trail bikes – aka the “downcountry” segment. Intended to be a “Goldilocks” tire, the new Forekaster (July 2022) rolls faster than a Minion or even the Dissector but provides more predictable cornering, climbing, and braking traction than the Aspen or Rekon.

Tire Tech

3C MAXXTerra:

Maxxis’ 3C MaxxTerra is an intermediate triple compound configuration used across their mountain tire line. The 3C MaxxTerra compound offers more traction than 3C MaxxSpeed, yet provides better treadwear and less rolling resistance than MaxxGrip, which makes it ideal for trail riding in all conditions.


The Assegai, Forekaster, Minion DHF, and Minion DHRII tire models have received official ECE-R75 Certification and are approved for use on eBikes at speeds of up to 50 KPH.


EXO is a cut- and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls of many Maxxis mountain bike and gravel tires. This densely woven fabric is lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the tire's performance remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for enhanced durability for gravel, XC, and light-duty trail riding.

Tubeless Ready:

Tubeless-ready tires provide the rider with many benefits: the ability to run lower air pressures, which improves traction; lower rolling resistance when compared to a tube-type tire; and less chance of flatting because there is no tube. Tubeless-ready tires are denoted by the letters “TR” on the sidewall.

Tubeless-ready tires must be mounted to tubeless compatible rims and require the use of a liquid sealant to maintain pressure. Liquid sealants have the added benefit of sealing small punctures. Be sure to check your sealant regularly and refresh as needed, as it will dry out over time. Pick up an extra bottle of sealant here

Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires: tubeless road, tubular, and tubeless-ready. Using liquid sealants in any other Maxxis tire will void the warranty.

Great rear tire!

Sick rear tire for my down country, good cornering and fast rolling!

Robert Holcomb
Mtb tire Forekaster

Very quick delivery. Great communication.


Fast shipping and good deals.

Heavy compared to V1

I had Forekaster v1, 2.35, DC, 740gm, which were fast and light. I never felt quite confident on tight corners or technical downhills. The new Forekaster 2.4 Max Terra, have great stability and give confidence, but my legs have felt the extra 200gm. Hope my legs adapt.

Rolls and rolls

This review is for the NEW V.2 Maxxis Forekaster tires. I picked up a pair of these tires and have been riding them for about a month. My terrain is pretty much dry and rocky. They replaced my Aggressors which my bike came with front and back. The first thing I want to say is I completely forgot about the tires under me, and that's a good thing. A very good thing! No punctures, no seating issues, and no loss of air. How do they ride? Fast rolling but not like an Ikon, grippy but not like an Assegai or a Minnion. I almost want to say they remind me of Dissectors which I really like, Forekasters are lighter and roll faster though. There are no downsides and nothing comes to mind while riding either. That's how good they are no wonder they are all sold out everywhere!
