Why We Like The Minion DHR II Wide Trail EXO/TR

For steep trails littered with jagged rocks and loose soil, few tires can match the traction and braking power of the Minion DHR II. The cornering knobs resemble those found on the DHF tire, only with a wider profile to dig in more quickly while cornering. The center treads are where this tire really shines to us, featuring paddle-like knobs that dig into even the steepest trails, perfect for bike park skidders and gnarly backcountry trails. This particular DHR II comes with EXO sidewall protection that's on the lightweight side of the options from Maxxis, yet still offers reinforced strength.


  • Aggressive trail tire for maximum traction and braking power
  • Dual Compound rubber has a longer wear life than 3C
  • EXO sidewall protection saves weight over EXO+ and Double Down
  • 2.6in Wide Trail boosts grip without the squirmy plus-tire feel
  • Pairs well with a Minion DHF or Assegai up front
  • Optimized for 30 - 35mm internal width rims

Great tires

I've put it through the wringer

Living in Southern California, these tires do great on our lose over hard terrain. Enough grip for those tight turns and rolls pretty quickly. So far have been durable over some chunky trails

Be Selective

I've used it several times

It always should be said to choose the proper tool for the job. With respect to traction in turns and on the damp, these tires are legit. I doubled up and ran DHR II both in the front and rear. Still getting a feel for it but so far I think it is just as good as a DHF/DHR combo. I push about 25psi/26psi front to rear (195lbs). I am notorious for being rough on tires and tend to slice side walls in the chunky stuff here in CO. I switched to Bontrager SE4 and they stood up well. So why come back to Maxxis and if you are rough on tires why go with a tan sidewall which is less durable... Because it will lighten things up weight wise,, but really because it looks dope as hell. I'm working on line choice this summer and sparing my bikes trauma. I'll look good while doing it.

One of my favorties

I've put it through the wringer

Love this tire front and rear, even more so than having a DHF in the front. For some reason I find it more predictable. I also like that it is a 2.4 WT and not something wider. Even better when you get it in EXO+....which can be hard to find.

Still my favorite rear tire

I've put it through the wringer

It?s been a long time but I keep coming back to the DHR as my preferred rear tire. It?s an absolute classic. I now pair them with an Assegai up front and I have my perfect tire combination for aggressive trail riding out here in Utah. 5 stars.

Great tire

I've used it several times

Came stock on my Pivot Trail 429 . I'm used to riding an XC bike and rode Vittoria Mezcal/AKA/Saguaro for a long time...I'm getting used to a bigger, burlier bike/tire and slowly testing the limits of cornering...seems like these will do the trick. Super stable and tough tire, rolls well at about 18 psi.
