THREADS PER INCH (TPI)
The number of threads that cross through one square inch of a single ply of the tire’s casing.
Lower TPI gives better puncture, cut and abrasion resistance but is heavier.
Higher TPI conforms better to the terrain, offering a smoother, more comfortable ride while reducing the weight of the tire.Maxxis TPI ratings are the threads-per-inch of a single casing ply,as compared to some competitor TPI ratings.
Silkworm is an exclusive material incorporated into the casing of select models, increasing puncture and tear
resistance. Silkworm is featured under the tread as a breaker.
Two compounds used within the tread of select tires to offer lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
