Old friend, new size.
In its decade-plus existence, the Maxxis Minion DHF has sat at the helm of trail and enduro sleds and dug in around switchbacks, floated through rock gardens, and straightlined singletrack more times than anyone can count. The classic tire continues its trail dominance in a new plus version with the Minion DHF EXO/TR 27.5 Plus Tire. We can't think of many better ways to get rowdy on the trails than wrapping your beefy plus-sized front rim in a Minion DHF. This higher-volume version comes endowed with the same assortment of tall, square knobs that made its predecessor so successful, and when considering the added plushness and stability compared to 29 and 27.5 that 27.5 Plus brings, the Minion DHF stands to give you a hell of a ride.
Maxxis uses dual-compound rubber to construct the Minion DHF to give it stable grip in corners and the ability to take off on smooth sections. Equipping this version of the tire to excel in the kind of sharp, repetitive rock gardens that often slice open sidewalls, Maxxis surrounds the Minion DHF in EXO protective casing. We can't promise you'll never flat, but you definitely shouldn't hold your breath when you round a quick corner and slam through a rock-encrusted section of trail. Plus, since it comes tubeless-ready, you'll be hard-pressed to flat during a ride unless you're trying to.
