Don't get fooled again.

Don't be fooled by the "DH" in the 26in Minion DHF 3C EXO Tire title — it's designed with aggressive all-mountain riding in mind. To accomplish this, Maxxis uses its lauded Minion front tread pattern, pairing it with a 2.5in-wide, 60TPI casing, EXO protection, and 3C Maxx Terra rubber compound.

The DHF pattern incorporates ramped knobs to promote low-rolling resistance with channel-cut side knobs in order to increase cornering grip. Complementing this is Maxxis' 3C Maxx Terra, a triple compound design that focuses on versatility over maximum grip and lowest rolling-resistance. This provides the balance that all-mountain riders need to tackle everything from high alpine to loamy forest floors.

Adding to this tire's versatility, while also reinforcing its lighter casing, is Maxxis' EXO sidewall protection. This helps resist abrasion and pinched side walls out on the trail.

The Maxxis Minion DHF 3C EXO 26-inch Tire is a folding clincher and is available in a 2.5-inch width.

On the front

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pair this with the Maxxis High Roller on the rear and let the Minion lead the way. This has improved my turning at high speed and control in the lose dirt.

My Front AM Tire of Choice

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

New England or Utah so far haven't found any terrain this tire won't grip going up or down. Why bother trying something else when this works!

Holy Shit balls.. These things are getting so expensive. They are my favorite tire for my DH bikes. Front and Rear. I have seen many different tires being tried by many of my buddies because these things can break the bank when getting fresh rubber for your ride.

DHF = Down Hill FAST

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Here it is: the king of tread. Often imitated, the Minion DHF works equally well on the front or rear wheel, and offers trustworthy traction, especially in the terrain of the mountain west. Loose over hard, soft and dusty, this is your tire. Look in the lift line next time you are at the resort...Minions are everywhere, and for good reason.
