Description

Mega Minion

Wide is in and unless you are a gram-counting, leg-shaving XC devotee, a larger tire makes the ride so much better. Maxxis is bringing their ever popular Minion DHR II to the wide party, but instead of simply making it girthier, t features a tweaked tread pattern that's designed to offer better grip when mounted on wider (30-35mm internal) rims. The Minion DHR II Wide Trail EXO/TR 29-inch will transform your bike into an all-mountain trail shredder.

Since a wider rim will splay the tread further apart, Maxxis learned that by slightly changing the location and orientation of the knobs, it could better align cornering forces directly into the edge knobs, even at smaller lean angles. So you'll get the renowned traction that you have come to expect from the Minion DHR II and you can heel it way over in turns without losing cornering confidence or have a vague, breakaway feeling on with your wide rims.

The tread isn't the only part of the Minion DHR II WT designed to improve traction. It's tubeless ready, a given, so you can run lower pressure to improve grip, and comes with Dual Compound rubber so it is faster rolling in straight lines with less resistance and will hook up with aplomb when leaned over.

Maxxis' EXO casing, which is supple and prevents the dreaded walk out by warding off slices from pointy rocks sharp-edged ax heads common on trails found in Moab and Sedona. The DHR II is also competent on loose and loose over hard surfaces that are tricky for many tires to find traction.

  • A version of the DHR II optimized for wide rims
  • Unified center lugs provide excellent braking traction
  • Excels across loose-over-hard, medium, and loose trails
  • EXO sidewall protection for less flats

My two cents

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great tire, no doubt about it. I originally bought this tire for a trip to Whistler but also found it handy when riding in Moab. I bought a new bike this year and this tire came on the front and back and I have to admit it handles pretty well up front too. When the front tire wears out I will probably replace it with a DHF as the side knobs hold better in loose corners. When riding buff trails I sometimes wish for a better rolling tire, like the Aggressor, but overall its a great tire that will always have a place in my garage.

Great Rear Tire!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used many rear tires, I tend to go through them quickly. The last tire I used before this was the Aggressor. I'd say this is equally grippy and confidence inspiring. This is the first DHR II I've used, and I love it. The wide trail version is great for rims with an inner width around 30mm or larger. I'd highly recommend this tire for a rear.

So much shralp!

I loveee this tire. Paired with stans you can run it nice and low and have fast reliable traction! Roost berms, conquer tech sections, rip though mud, and climb hard.
