Maxxis Minion DHF Tubeless Mountain Tire (Black) (Folding) (27.5" / 584 ISO) (2.3") (3C MaxxTerra/EXO)
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.
