Cross" ATV Tires Product Review
(written by Tina Lugan)
We have seen the ATV industry grow significantly in
recent years, and as the ATV line up has grown and expanded,
so have the demand for tires. Mini ATV racing has grown
by leaps and bounds , and this year alone has set record
numbers at various tracks.
"Razr Cross" ATV Tires
Each year the mini ATVs seem to be offering more models
with suspension and performance upgrades, but there
has remained a limited selection of tires available
on the market for the smaller wheel sizes until now.
Recently, Maxxis released the all new Razr Cross performance
sport ATV tire, which we discovered for the first time
trackside at Round 5 of the WORCS ATV Series.
Maxxis Razr Cross tires were originally only available
in Europe till now, and they are designed for motocross
racing. Since their release in the states, they have been
popping up on many of the top Pro Motocross ATV machines
with Suzuki’s Dustin Wimmer switching to the Razr
Cross for the first time at Round 3 of the WPSA ATV Tour
at Cooperland, and he claimed his first win of the year,
which catapulted him into the Pro points lead. Since his
success, the tires have popping up on more and more ATVs
among the Pro ranks as they are proving to be a great
addition to the Maxxis tire lineup.

The other great thing about the new Razr Cross tires
is that they also work extremely well on mini ATVs as
well. The Razr Cross tires sizes provided added ground
clearance without substantially weighing down a mini
ATV as many other tires do when mounted on Mini ATVs.
What drew our attention to the tires was that they offered
both front and rear applications for the full sized
MX quads, as well as adding some much needed tire height
for some of the mini trail riders and XC mini racers.The
tires are 4-ply and are offered in two different sizes:
Front:19X6-10 & 20X 6-10
Rear: 18x6.5-8 & 18x10-8
