An aggressive off-road focused tire the Maxxis Razr AT has fewer on-road compromises than you’d expect, while offering long life, excellent durability and true winter performance too. A great example of a niche brand offering a top-tier tire!
Maxxis Razr AT Review
With the success of the Razr MT, Maxxis Tires has now launched a new and extremely capable all-terrain tire, the Razr AT.
- Amazing off-road grip
- Surprisingly civilized
- Solid warranty
- Winter capable
- Warranty could be slightly longer
- Wet weather grip compromised by aggressive tread design
It’s kind of shocking that it’s taken Maxis this long, to be honest. Up until now, the brand’s all-terrain tire has been (and continues to be) the Bravo Series AT-771. A decent tire by all means, the Razr AT pushes the limits of capability to much further heights while also offering a more attractive warranty. It’s amazing what the evolution of tire technology can do.
One look at this tire and it’s obvious this isn’t a typical all-terrain option. Sporting an aggressive four-row tread block design with lots more void space than a typical AT tire, it’s built to grip. Jagged read block edges give it traction, as do an alternating pattern on the should tread blocks.
This same design, however, also gives impeccable on-road manners. The wide overlapping tread blocks give the tire excellent stability on-road and solid grip on dry roads too. Plus, the design has been optimized for a quiet ride, despite the fact that tires that look like this are generally very noisy.
Traction on wet roads is decent, though like many all-terrain tires with a similar tread design, it’s somewhat limited in its ability to evacuate deep water, so hydroplaning can be an issue when it really pours.
The aggressive design wraps over the tire’s shoulder and down onto the sidewall, helping give some extra protection against cuts and scrapes. Meanwhile, Maxxis engineered a new dual-cord casing to make a stronger and more durable tire tread base, for extra protection, as well as durability over time.
The tread compound is built not only to resists cuts and shucking out on the trails but to hold up to prolonged on-road use too. As a result, Maxxis is able to back the tire with a 50,000 mile tread life rating for LT sizes and 60,000 miles for all other sizes. This is slightly less than some of the top warranties in the all-terrain segment, which now stretch up to 65,000 miles for some of the premium options.
On top of all this, the Razr AT is also capable in all climates and comes certified for true winter use with the three peak mountain snowflake logo on the sidewall.
So take it anywhere, any time, including just to the store, the new Razr AT is built for off-road grip and your daily commute.

Is the Maxxis RAZR AT Good in Snow?
