Maxxis has developed the M6029 Supermaxx Touring tyre using Virtual Intelligent Prototyping and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) — the most advanced computer technology.

  • A distinctive profile and tread pattern create precise handling and stability for quick and precise cornering
  • W-rated for today's high-performance sport bikes
  • Extensive testing in Europe
Maxxis has developed the M6029 Supermaxx Touring tyre using Virtual Intelligent Prototyping and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) — the most advanced computer technology. FEA is used to ensure even load distribution between cornering and straight-line performance. This identifies the stress/load conditions that the tyre will be used under, ensuring that even distribution of load is achieved at maximum stress levels under force, whilst achieving a fast and controlled response. The Supermaxx Touring has a distinctive profile and tread pattern which creates responsive handling and stability for quick and precise cornering. The revolutionary radial construction uses Kevlar® belts to ensure tyre uniformity at high speeds.

They don’t look particularly fun to throw around or get the heart pumping to look at.... my dad had a vfr800 for about 6 months and thought it was one of the best bikes he had ridden yet absolutely hated it because it was too good... it was smooth, never stepped out of line, felt like you couldn’t crash it which essentially took all the fun out of riding a bike round B roads.


I'm 48 now. Work is further away. Want comfort when you get older. Had sports bikes etc. OK when you are young

Great deal. Maxxis will always mean top quality mountain bike tyres to me. Makes perfect sense that they're taking a piece of the automotive market too.
And the more popular 180/55/17 also available at this price. Here.

Good price, but who fits them and how much is fitting when you supply your own tyres? Or do you do then yourselves?

Most bike shops will do it for 10-20 for loose wheels.

Having had a couple of BMW's they are incredibly capable bikes, quite capable of craziness with the sports bikes on British roads, if not the track. They also have quite a lot of 'character', being twins. And finally, BMW have accurately marketed them at the mature demographic which is motorcycling today. Personally, I'm off BM's as I found that the last one I owned felt too electronically interfered with, which kind of agrees with your Dad's comment. But, if I wanted to ride 500 miles tomorrow, a GS would take a lot of beating.

They are also incredibly well mannered in the handling stakes, have to up the pace to shake them off, much to our lasses annoyment...

I can assure you, these aren't... unless you prolific with wheel spinning and drifting round corners...

Be careful. I ragged the ABS of my bike fitting a rear tyre. Didn't even think about the ABS. Hoping I can live without it.
These are CHEAP for a pair (and I have voted hot) and Maxxis IT are great trail tyres, but for the road I prefer to spend more on Pirelli or Bridgestone.
Had maxxis before and they great in the dry but bloody lethal if it rained

Don't just make things up. Maxxis are a great Chinese company and make great bicycle tyres... Go and buy something else then rather than making false accusations.

I always fit my motorcycle tyres myself. You can do it without bead breaker but it is a little bit harder and time consuming - but for sure possible.

You will need 2 (preferably 3) rim protectors and 2 (preferably 3) tyre irons. If it is a sunny day they make sure tyre is in full sun for couple of hours as this will soften it (or in extreme case do a burnout ) but new tyre will need softening as well so either sun or hair dryer - I used it with great success couple of times

This is the best video I think.
If fitting yourself you will need to balance the wheel as well but static wheel balancers can be bought for about £35......my local dealer wanted to charge £44 for fitting to a loose wheel, took it elsewhere and got it done for £25....

True! Plus if you're a year-round all-weather rider, you want something that doesn't like to step out of line.

So 2 bikes is the way to go. One for the commute, one to thrash! That's how I'm trying to sell the idea to the wife anyhow...

I'm 32 and I've only ever had upright nakeds. Cg125 > cb600f and now my current gsx1400.

Had a go of a few mates sports bikes and couldn't fathom why anyone would want to kill their back, neck and wrists haha. Not my cup o tea.
Good touring tyres for a good price- heat added
I commute on a sports bike but it's short distance like 8 miles. Deffo not comfortable for any long distance, especially as I get older. At least 3 bikes is the only way to go.

I'm speaking from experience, put a new pair on a fighter blade, wheel would spin whilst going for a wheelie, plus was sat on my ar$e in a biker cafe after giving a very mild handful whilst pulling out, spun round and was laid underneath it took them straight off... mate had one on his r1 (supplied by shop, 2nd hand bike), chucked it down on a roundabout, wasn't even going fast, 50yrs riding experience between us...

Its like the old tool scenario... sure a bosch drill and an aldi drill will drill the same hole... but the bosch drill is more likely to give you the confidence to keep drilling... i can reccomend a pair of tyre right now... Avon 3d x ... been using these this year.... 3.5k in... half worn rear... 2 up mix of quick road riding with the confidence to scratch the odd peg... worlds apart...

Not everyone, everyone has a preference. Not sure the feeling of about to crash on a B road is a good idea, ending up in a ditch or hitting a curb with your body is not fun. Better to save that for the track.
I may be being overcautious but I'd never buy Maxxis again. Only time I did was only time I had a rear tyre blow, first time unconscious and first broken bone. Lucky to get to 58 before any of this, but not taking and more chances. Michelin or Metzler for me on my R1200R.

34 here and on a cbr600f4i. I find the sports position fine for my commute. Only 17miles each way. Never had an issue with back or neck ache, on this, the sv650 or cbr125 bikes before. Perhaps because I'm a short arse at 5ft9 and on the slimmer side of builds (now I've lost the beer gut)

At this price, it's like buying a chinese knockoff phone. You know you're getting what you pay for.

I remember these being terrible in the wet. They arent the grippiest on sports bikes.

These are only for those that own a gsxr or cbr with seven previous careful owners with 40k on the clock and mismatched fairings.

These are one of the most, it not the most important components on a bike, cheap out and you'll regret it.
Dreadful tyre. Spend £100 more and have something you can trust and enjoy for the next 5-10k miles.

Good deal for a commuter (only) or someone who hates riding I guess

You sir are correct. Avon's are superb - the Spirit is also excellent
Worst tyre brand outside of the Chinese stuff. Terrible in the wet and just about acceptable in the dry. Wear out quick too. They do reasonable trials stuff but their road tyres are pap.
