The Maxxis Aspen ST tires are new, just released on the market, but the truth is that we have been seeing them rolling and winning some of the best XC races on the planet for years. It is the fastest and most rolling model of the brand for XC and after seeing it mounted on Nino Schurter's bike for several seasons, it is finally available for sale.

Maxxis Aspen ST: Nino Schurter's favorite tires

It is a new ultra-low profile mountain bike tire for short track cross-country races.

The Maxxis Aspen ST, or "Fastpen" as it is also known, is a very low profile tire developed to offer minimal rolling resistance. That is why it is recommended to use in dry conditions and the brand suggests that it is focused on short and explosive races, such as a Short Track. Although the truth is that we have seen it win much longer races, like the 100 km Fuego XL that Keegan Swenson won in 2023.

The Aspen ST is available in 2.25 and 2.4" with 120 TPI and 170 TPI casing, and all options use the recently updated MaxxSpeed compound.

The brand advises to use the Aspen ST only in dry conditions, both front and rear, and to combine it with a regular Aspen in the front for rainy days.

Maxxis Aspen ST: models, weights, and prices

This model is already on sale in the USA at a price of $93 and $101 for the 120 and 170 TPI versions respectively, but it seems that in a matter of weeks it will arrive in the European market. It will be then when we will know its price in euros.

Gustav Gullholm has been mounting these tires on his setups for years, in the image he himself checks the weight of the lighter version
