With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo! 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 DHR II MaxxTerra MTB Tire (3C/EXO/TR) (27.5 x 2.30)
This tire in the rear, paired with the Maxxis DHF in the front, 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.
