The standard by which all tires are judged. With a tread design that deftly balances rolling speed with braking and cornering traction, it's hard to find fault with the Minion DHF. That's probably why it's one of the most imitated tires in mountain biking. Whether riding local trails, a backcountry epic, racing enduro or World Cup downhill, there's a Minion DHF spec to meet your needs. The Minion DHF is available in trail, enduro, and downhill specs.

The most important part of a tire is arguably the rubber compound used to within the tread and with Maxxis's 3C MaxxTerra you get an intermediate compound with great rolling and grip properties. 

Features:

  • 3C: Tripple Compound with harder base-layer and two progressively softer top layers for optimal traction and durability
  • EXO: Extremely cut-resistant and abrasion resistant material layer added to sidewalls 
  • TR: Tubeless Ready for increased traction and lower rolling resistance
  • DD: DoubleDown provides two 120tpi casing layers reinforced with a butyl insert for DH protection at a lower weight

Maxxis Minion DHF MaxxTerra Tire (3C/EXO/TR) (27.5 x 2.30)
This tire in the front, paired with the Maxxis DHR II in the rear, is my favorite combo I have ever run. A true trifecta of tire performance...light, fast rolling, killer traction. This tire should make the other tire companies very nervous. I have used a bunch of different tires over the years, and the DHF/DHR II combo just cannot be matched when it comes to all around aggressive riding performance. Are there lighter tires? Sure, but they don't last and tend to go flat at the worst times. Are there faster tires? Sure, but they don't hook up. Are there tires that make more traction? Sure, but they don't roll as well and usually weigh a ton. Hardpack, rocks, loose over hard and loamy, the DHF/DHR II just seems to work everywhere. Comparing to other tires in the Maxxis lineup, I would say this tire grips like a High Roller II, but without the vague transition into the side knobs, and pedals almost as fast an Ardent. Lifespan is excellent too, after almost 200 miles in a variety of conditions (including pavement) the tire shows little to no signs of wear.
