Semi-slick CX racing tire with aggressive cornering knobs.
The Maxxis Speed Terrane features a familiar file tread pattern optimized for early-season cyclocross races. Micro-diamond knobs adorn the tread surface to offer blazing speed on hardpacked surfaces, while stacked paddle knobs down the middle offer unrivaled climbing and braking traction so you can attack whenever you like. When the course gets twisty, the siped and offset cornering knobs will dig in to give you the support to brake later and push your tires as hard as your legs. Worry less about your tires and more about the holeshot!

Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire bead. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
