Put some wide on your ride.

Maybe you spent the last five years in hermetic isolation, but if you didn't, you doubtlessly noticed that "wider" is the new "carbon" in the mountain bike wheel world. Maxxis is embracing this trend — and slightly changing the game in the process — with its new Minion DHR II Wide Trail 3C/EXO/TR 27.5in Tire. Despite its name, the DHR Wide isn't actually wider than the original Minion, but it does feature a tweaked tread pattern that's designed to offer better grip when mounted on wider rims.


By slightly changing the location and orientation of the knobs, Maxxis was able to direct cornering force into the edge knobs at smaller lean angles, so you get the killer grip of the classic Minion without having to lay your wide-rimmed ride all the way down and risk washing out — a distinct possibility with traditional tires mounted on wide rims.


The tread isn't the only part of the Minion DHR designed to improve traction. It's tubeless ready, so you can run it at lower pressures to improve grip, and comes in both 3C Maxx Grip and 3C Maxx Terra editions, the former of which is harder and more trail-friendly than the softer, DH-crushing latter.


Both tires feature Maxxis' EXO casing, which is pliable but made to take a rocky beating so you don't fight flats on sharp and rocky trails. The DHR is also most comfortable on hard, loose, and firm trails, while its brother the DHF is more of a mud-friendly tire.
