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

The well-loved Minion DHF inspired an upgrade, and Maxxis jumped on the wide tire bandwagon to offer up the Minion DHR II Wide Trail. It's constructed to improve acceleration and, with its increased width, provide additional support. But, that's not all that improves the speed and nimble handling we've come to expect from Maxxis tires. Ramped and siped tread rolls fast and digs in under braking, along with strategically placed knobs that decorate the center tread. Cornering, thankfully, becomes a breeze and that added traction inspires confidence on our rides. Further grip comes from running tubeless tires at a lower pressure so we can ride loose surfaces and rainy days without issue. Maxxis' EXO casing guards against punctures and potholes and Dual Compund rubber keeps faster roller in straight lines with less resistance, increasing control while we're riding trails or downhill laps.

  • The right tire for loose to medium, wet and dry trails
  • Ramped and siped tread track straight under braking
  • A wider tire increases ruggedness and the ability to handle rough trails
  • Paddle-like knobs are optimally placed on the center tread for control
  • EXO casing protects from punctures and debris

One of my favorties

Familiarity:
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.

Does this come with two tires or only one?

Still my favorite rear tire

Familiarity:
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.

Maxxis is my preferred MTB tire brand and this is one of their better options. Great traction in general, rolls better than expected and sheds mud well.

Great tire

Familiarity:
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.

Maxxis Minion DHF EXO

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Came stock on my Yeti SB 100 from CS. Much heavier than hoped. Feels like running in a pair of mud boots instead of trail shoes. Great on corners and in mud with a lot of grip. Still, just too heavy. Feels like plodding, not riding. Switching out for Nobby Nic.

Works up front

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this tire for the front in the 2.4 WT size paired with a Rekon out back. I chose this over the DHF WT to save around 100 grams and it's been a great front tire; I only wish it was a little larger. In overall volume I don't think it is any wider than the DHR 2.3 (the casing) it just has a wider tread pattern. I've mostly used it on hard pack and loose over hard conditions and it rails- The tire weighs 960g on my digital scale, so a lot closer to the claimed weight than CC is stating...

This is the tire which all others are measured to for a reason. You can't go wrong. Rolls fast and corners well.

The Most Traction

I use this rear tire on every one of my builds. Plenty of traction and never disappoints.

Ideal rear tire

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The 2.4 width is the ideal width for a rear tire, offering tons of traction while climbing and braking. The durable side wall has held up great all season set up tubeless! I would recommend this when looking to upgrade your rear tire, combine it with a 2.5 DHF for the ultimate enduro setup.

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.

The side knobs are exactly the same between the DHF and DHR2 and the DHR2 is lighter.

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.

Hey Ryan...trying to decide between the DHR II (2.4) and the Aggressor (2.3 or 2.5) for a rear tire for riding here in Vermont. Trails are a mixed bag for conditions, but typically rocky/rooty/buffed/loose with lots of climbing. It sounds like the Aggressor's going to be a bit faster and the DHR II a bit better cornering and braking...any other thoughts here to help me decide? Thanks!

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.
