The Minion SS (Semi-Slick) fills the gap between a fast rolling XC tires and grippy DH tires by including a cluster of short, ramped knobs, flanked by the much-loved Minion side knobs. This combination creates a fast-rolling tire with a square profile that hooks up in loose terrain. Perfect for summer shredding. The Minion SS is available in trail, enduro, and downhill specs.
The most important part of a tire is arguably the rubber compound used within the tread and with Maxxis's Dual Compound you get two compounds that offer low rolling resistance and increased cornering grip.
