There are times when ‘Maximum Performance’ means far more than just the way your tyres handle, grip and wear.
Stuart Ball’s ‘Great Australian Ride’ is one of these instances.
It is a daring charity ride which starts at Byron Bay (the most Eastern side of Australia) and travels across the centre of Australia to Steep Point (the most Western side of Australia). The ride is undertaken annually to raise funds for the RED NOSE foundation (formally called SIDS).
Maxxis were privileged to sponsor the ride in 2016, and fitted the ‘Sweeper Vehicle’ and trailer with Maxxis AT-980s. The ride is a seriously epic adventure, and consists of 7,500km of travelling over 21 days.
Maxxis knew that the grueling trip called for the very best all-terrain tyres – so using the AT-980 was a ‘no-brainer.’

Congratulations on a great ride for a great cause, Stuart – and all the best for the 2017 adventure!
