Grippy speed.

Bridging the space between speedy, low-profile cross-country tires and burly downhill tires, the Maxxis Minion SS EXO/TR 29-in Tire features a mixed knob profile that combines the best of both worlds to add an epic touch to any enduro ride. Short, ramped knobs line the middle of the tire to roll fast, while the same fat side knobs found on the original downhill Minion grip hard through corners and over loose trails.

This tire features a foldable bead, is tubeless ready, and is constructed with a 60 TPI casing and a Dual compound for pliable durability and grip. As an added bonus, EXO sidewall protection fends off pesky rocks and trail obstacles to prevent ride-ending tire tears as you bomb towards the finish line.

Downgrading my previous review

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So the tires rode great right out of the start. However, they durability on these tires is pretty poor. Due to an injury this summer I probably have less that 150 miles on these and I have side knobs that are separating from the tire in a bad way. I've talked with a few other friends who have had the same issue. I know it's a relatively new tire design for Maxxis and hopefully they get it right going forward. As of right now, I would not repurchase.

Nice tire.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Running this on the rear of my SC tallboy. Seems to roll very well, but provides good traction and good cornering feel. Only used in dry conditions so far. Very easy to set up tubeless.

Great Rear Tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this tire. It rolls exceptionally well and gives you the grip you need when cornering. I'm running this on my Pivot 429c. It's definitely for dry conditions and I wouldn't run it as a front tire. Highly recommend giving this a try.

Best Dry Tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have this tire as the rear on both of my bikes. I'm running it on a 26mm internal width rim on my trail bike, and you can see that review under the 27.5 version. On my 29er, I'm running a much narrower rim, and the tire profile is definitely different. Still great, but different. I find the side knobs are a bit more rounded over with the narrower rim, changing the cornering characteristics of this tire slightly. If you want a fast dry conditions tire that can really rail corners, this would be a great option.
