Gravity tested, all-mountain approved.

Some all-mountain shredders don't need it all to feel good. But that's not us. If it's not you, either, then Dr. Maxxis is prescribing 27.5in of the Minion DHF WT Wide Trail 3C/Double Down/TR Tire. While its cup runneth over with all manner of Maxxis tech, this little enduro pill's active ingredient is its Double Down armor, which involves two layers of 120 TPI casing and a butyl insert for gravity-grade protection at an all-mountain weight. Take two and meet us at the trailhead in the morning.

Despite not measuring in the 2.8in range, the Minion WT still accommodates the current trend of wider rims with an equally expanded tread pattern. The tweaked design lets the tire sit fat without the risk of the shoulder knobs migrating to areas of trail contact that they're not meant for — a distinct possibility with narrow tires on wide rims. This preserves the rolling speed and cornering confidence that keep us coming back to the dual-compound Minion party, and it also makes the DHF model's reliability on soggy trails that much more appealing.

Sitting fat also equates to more air volume, which in turn makes for a plusher, less flat-prone, and higher traction ride — all of which properties are further boosted by running the Minion tubeless. This particular Minion also features Maxxis' 3C Maxx Grip compound blend, which involves a harder base layer and progressively softer outer layers to maintain durability and preserve grip and trail feel. Like the Double Down puncture-resistance, 3C Maxx Grip is typically seen on Maxxis' DH line, so it's welcome medicine for any all-mountain nutter who regularly ends up on the far side of the ragged edge.

Pretty close to perfect

Whether you ride DH, all mountain, trail, or even some aggressive XC, the DHF is going to give you what you need. Feel free to contact me to chat about your rubber choice at 801-204-4556 or

This is a great tire for the down hill. They are heavy to pedal around, but worth it for the down. The extra rubber allows you to run lower pressures in the tires without destroying your rims. The extra casing also gives the tire a damper feel which is nice for brake bumps and other chatter causing features.

ALL the grip

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Though these babies aren't light weight and don't like to go up hill very much, they make up for it on the down. All of a sudden you jsut can't get the front to let go. Just imagine the joy you'll experience while your tire is saying "I can't quit you" to the dirt. Its a wonderful experience. Even better, you don't have to worry about ripping this tire off your rim, its on there and isn't going anywhere.

big is better

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Awesome tire

Ive been riding with a DH casing up front for a while now and finally Maxxis offered something in between the exo and the dh. This thing is great, a little on the heavier side than the exo but you get the extra insurance that goes with it. Same great DHF.
