Minion DHR II Wide Trail EXO/TR

For steep trails littered with jagged rocks and loose soil, few tires can match the traciton and braking power of the Minion DHR II. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges for quick accelerations, as well as strategically placed siping for smooth transitions when leaning the bike over. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking so you can have full control when you're scrubbing speed before the next technical section. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for an unstoppable combo for aggressive trail riding.

This particular DHR II comes in a lofty 29 x 2.6in Wide Trail casing, offering maximum cushion and flotation over uneven surfaces. It's constructed using Maxxis' Dual Compound rubber, which is a bit harder durometer than their 3C compound, giving you longer wear life and lower rolling resistance without sacrificing much in the way of grip. In the tire's sidewalls you'll find the EXO protection layer, helping to reduce the chance of slices and punctures without adding significant weight to the tire.

  • An aggressive trail tire for maximum traction and braking power
  • Dual Compound rubber rolls fast and has long wear life
  • 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 in the front
  • Optimized for 30 - 35mm internal width rims
  • Tan sidewalls keep you rolling in style

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.
